The tech behind PowerEdge MX, Dell EMC's new IT transformation infrastructure
Dell EMC has launched PowerEdge MX with a promise that the transformative IT infrastructure will help customers 'easily adapt' to future technologies.
Described as the industry's 'newest high performance, modular infrastructure', PowerEdge MX utilises a unique kinetic design to support both traditional and emerging data centre workloads.
According to Dell EMC, 'customers can break free from the bounds of technology silos and time-consuming, routine operational management while also dynamically assigning IT to optimally match different applications and needs'.

"While emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence, IoT and software-defined storage and networking, offer competitive benefits, their workloads can be difficult to predict and pose new challenges for IT departments," said Ashley Gorakhpurwalla, president and general manager, Dell EMC Server and Infrastructure Systems.
"PowerEdge MX enables a modular approach to flexibly build and combine compute, storage and networking, so organisations can transform their IT in a way that optimizes resources and offers investment protection for future generations of technological advances."
The PowerEdge MX ecosystem includes a newly designed chassis and precisely-sized resource blocks of servers and storage that connect to the infrastructure through a smart I/O fabric.
Designed for the software-defined data centre, it is able to support a combination of dense virtualisation, software-defined storage, software-defined networking, artificial intelligence and big data projects.
