Why OEMs like Emerson and Carestream are looking to leverage the Dell PowerEdge VRTX


Expanding our enterprise portfolio for OEMs to include shared infrastructure

Looking for a simple and integrated solution that would allow you to have the computing power of a data center in desk-side, space-saving design? Dell’s customer-inspired PowerEdge VRTX does exactly that. It integrates servers, storage and networking into a single quiet office-optimized chassis the size of a tower server. This simple and sleek solution provides you with up to 4 blade servers, up to 48TB of integrated storage, and network switching.  Even better, this solution includes a unified systems management console for easy setup and configuration!

Why VRTX makes sense for OEMs

Integrated, pre-tested and certified, Dell PowerEdge VRTX delivers a complete technology platform that OEM’s can deploy smoothly and operate confidently. All in a quiet package small enough to fit in a regular office or other space-constrained areas (like a hospital room or manufacturing floor.)

Key benefits for OEM Customers include:

  • Everything is included—from servers to storage to networking
  • Office-level acoustics and power—no special power or cooling is required
  • Eliminate hours of valuable setup time with  faster deployment, easier updates and remote configuration
  • Reclaim space and reduce cabling
  • Simplify monitoring and management with a unified, integrated console
  • Scale and grow with your customers’ business needs
  • Protect your investment with a flexible platform that supports future technologies
  • Support and maintain with Dell’s ProSupport services

OEM Customer: Emerson Process Management

Learn how Dell PowerEdge VRTX can help global manufacturing and technology leader Emerson to reduce complexity and provide a better experience for their customers.
emerson_process_management_135425“To date, virtualization technologies have required expensive, time-consuming and complex server technology installations. Emerson’s early tests of the new Dell PowerEdge VRTX show that it significantly reduces the time, costs, footprint and IT expertise needed for our customers to run and expand their process automation systems. This complements Emerson’s vision and our focus on Human Centered Design to help our customers get the greatest value from their technology investments and operate their facilities safer, more reliably and with reduced complexity.”   (David Imming, vice president of product and services marketing for Emerson Process Management)


OEM Customer: Carestream

Ishai Tal, head of platform at Carestream, thinks PowerEdge VRTX “will change the way that small/medium hospitals and other healthcare organisations with a number of branches manage their IT infrastructure”, and will provide his company with a competitive edge in the marketplace.


“As a provider of healthcare information system technology, Dell’s PowerEdge VRTX could set us apart from others in the industry as we are able to provide our customers with exactly what they want and need – a consolidated, simplified infrastructure that can be managed by just one person (rather than separate storage and server administrators) from a centralised console.” (Ishai Tal, head of platform at Carestream)

Carestream is a global leader in medical imaging IT. It provides workflow solutions such as picture archiving and communication systems (PACS),vendor-neutral archiving (VNA) and a universal imaging viewer for referring physicians. Besides supplying on-site solutions, Carestream provides cloud-based services managed through a cost-per-procedure operational model.
