Our main uses for PowerEdge Rack Servers powered by Intel are virtualization, file servers, and Active Directory, which our entire infrastructure sits on. I have five Dell PowerEdge servers now. About 40,000 users are using these servers. About 70 to 80 people use the file server.

My division is backup. We use Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers powered by Intel to deploy backup systems to back up the entire area or region where we are setting it up. We actually use it as a media server for backup. For this server, we bought several with a net of 30 terabytes to use with a memory of about 256 gigs.

We mostly use them for managing our testing environment. They manage a different brand of blade servers, not Dell, but the Rack Servers powered by Intel are monitoring and managing the queues that run the tests. Developers are submitting tests to the system 24 hours a day, and nodes on the blade servers run the tests. Our PowerEdge servers manage the test queues.

It is used for data center service. PowerEdge Rack Servers powered by Intel are good for handling the evolving needs of high-performance workloads with classical use cases. My company has thousands of customers. We are resellers as well as implement Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers in our organization.

We have a 1U and a 2U PowerEdge Server. We're using them to scale storage devices. They provide a platform for our software that involves managing multiple, high-speed disks. We're using them to connect Mellanox and Intel NICs, which are very fast network interfaces.

I use a mixture of versions of this solution including R440s and R430s. I also use FX2Ss for the blade chassis and FC630s and 640s for the actual blade servers. We use the blade solution as a host cluster environment for virtualization of multiple servers and the standalone R440s and 430s for best practice when we don't want to necessarily complete virtualization. We use physical servers in different locations in order to have different firewall contexts, so we can push data across. We use the physical servers as simulated distant ends in a test environment out at the actual sites.

Our setup is only for single storage with Dell servers R620 and R630. We have 10 servers and we have deployed the ESXi on each one, with multiple VMs on each server. This solution is being used for testing purposes. We are testing for our clients that require any builder deployment. When our project is over, then we will restart this VM.

We primarily used the solution for the servers. It's a node among many in a multiprocessor, supercomputer environment. It's a very verified application. The customer uses a lesser file system, which means that one file system is shared among the entire installation. You're not going to see that very often in your career unless you're in that business. It's a multi-node, high-performance computing file system. It's Linux based.

We also use the Dell EMC PowerEdge Rack Server to do QA testing for those applications. We create temporary virtual machines for this. Virtualization is one of our main use cases. Hosting web applications is another. We also use the Dell server for standard architecture like Microsoft Excel and Office applications,
