Organizations that utilize multiple outdated servers for e-mail, database, file and print workloads stand to benefit greatly by consolidating to a single new server and running them in virtual machines. The Dell PowerEdge VRTX with a Dell PowerEdge M830 blade server, powered by the Intel® Xeon® processors can enable better performance in a virtual environment, with less space and power than a legacy disparate hardware solution. This white paper compares the performance and cost of Dell PowerEdge VRTX with one Dell PowerEdge M830 Server vs. A Legacy Solution.
