As per the International Data Corporation (IDC) Quarter Q1 2018 report, Dell EMC leads the Indian server industry with 28.3% in the x86 server category. This growth was predominantly driven by spending in the sectors like manufacturing, telecom, government and banking.
India’s Digital Transformation mission continues to pick up rapid pace, and the proliferation of smart devices, connected sensors and the constant need for data-driven insights has moved IT to the forefront of executive strategies. This has resulted in an exponential increase in the Indian server consumption. Per the IDC Worldwide Quarterly Server Tracker for Q1 2018, the overall server industry in India witnessed an exponential increase of 33.7% to reach $354.8 million in revenue.
Manish Gupta, Senior Director & General Manager, Infrastructure Solutions Group, Dell EMC India, said, “Providing better and powerful IT infrastructure solutions to our customers has always been our commitment at Dell EMC.

Dell EMC offers a holistic server portfolio of industry-leading 14th generation PowerEdge servers, which offer scalable business architecture and intelligent automation. Increasing workloads due to penetration of emerging technologies has forced IT infrastructure to deliver modern capabilities that adapts and scales with business needs and ultimately enables faster IT transformation. Recently, Dell EMC expanded its PowerEdge portfolio by unveiling two new four-socket servers – the PowerEdge R940xa and PowerEdge R840, part of the 14th generation Dell EMC PowerEdge server portfolio. Unlike competitors’ four-socket offerings, these servers support field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), which excel on data-intensive computations. Both servers feature OpenManage Enterprise to monitor and manage the IT infrastructure, as well as agent-free Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) for automated, efficient management to improve productivity.
Additionally, PowerEdge servers are embedded with a deep layer of defense mechanism built into both the hardware and firmware, delivering an integrated security systems throughout server lifecycle. Dell EMC’s established a three step approach while designing 14th generation PowerEdge servers. The approach revolves around the concept of Protect-Detect-Recover.The Protect function consists of several categories including access control, data security, maintenance, and protective technology. Detect function provides complete visibility into the configuration, health status and change events within a server system. Recover function helps in recovering the BIOS, firmware and OS, eventually getting back to the consistent stage.
