Dell Helps Redstation Grow Business by 70 Percent a Year (DailyFinance)
Redstation, a provider of dedicated hosting and co-location services, has experienced year-on-year growth of up to 70 percent with its dedicated infrastructure and cloud services underpinned by Dell Inc. (NASDAQ:DELL) PowerEdge 12th generation servers. The company selected Dell PowerEdge servers following a competitive analysis against Hewlett-Packard Company (NYSE:HPQ) and Supermicro. Redstation states it is able to achieve improved scalability, memory density and storage capacity with Dell PowerEdge R720xd servers and PowerVault storage. A 72 percent reduction in power cost has been achieved with the new infrastructure in place compared with its legacy infrastructure, allowing for an improved density per footprint without increased power costs. This has helped Redstation keep its prices low for customers, which is critical in the hosting industry where the ability to bring solutions to market quickly and at an affordable cost defines success.

Dell VRTX — A Nice Package for SMBs, Remote Offices (SiliconANGLE)
Dell Inc. (NASDAQ:DELL) has introduced a nice converged system for the SMB and remote office marketplaces in the VRTX, writes Wikibon Analyst, Founder, and Managing Consultant of the 1610 Group, and former CIO Scott Lowe in his latest Wikibon Alert. The VRTX is unusual in its size — it is limited to four servers and 48 TB of storage. “And that’s it,” he writes. “There is no ‘expansion pack’ or ‘scalability cable’ that magically expands the VRTX beyond these walls.” Physically it is a small box that can fit under a desk or in a corner of the otherwise empty office or closet that serves as the data center for many SMBs and remote offices.
