Dell's focus on edge computing goes back many years and its latest PowerEdge XR rugged servers push even more processing power out to where data is being generated. The family comprises the 2U XR12 and 1U XR11 single-socket models with both designed to operate in extreme environments.

Here, we review the XR11 which targets a range of edge computing applications including IoT, telco, military, retail, restaurants, remote offices, and more. It's built for continuous operations in temperature ranges between -5 and 55 degrees C while its chassis is fully NEBS (network equipment building system) Level 3, MIL-STD and Marine compliant.

The XR11 may be a short-depth system but it's no performance lightweight with the system on review sporting a meaty 32-core 2.2GHz Intel Xeon Scalable Gold 6338N CPU partnered by 64GB of DDR4. It can handle a 36-core Platinum 8351N and memory can be pushed to 1TB with LR-DIMMs. It also supports up to four 128GB Intel Optane PMEM 200 modules and even squeezes in three PCI-E Gen 4 expansion slots.

Dell PowerEdge XR11 review: Build, design and expansion

Available in front and rear mount configurations, we were supplied with the former where the chassis is reversed with all PSU sockets, network ports and expansion cards presented at the front for easy access in a rack cabinet. Both models are essentially the same but cooling and power in our system is handled by reverse-flow fans and PSUs.

Internal space may be tight but Dell has done an excellent design job by packing a lot of hardware into the XR11. Cooling choices are simplified as all specifications require a full complement of six cold-swap 'Very High Performance' fans.

Our system has a single 1,400W Platinum reverse-flow PSU and there's room for another alongside in the hot-plug bay. More modest specifications can drop down to lower-cost 800W PSUs and Dell also offers 1,100W DC versions for environments with stricter power requirements.

The side riser card has a single PCI-E Gen 4 x8 slot while the centre expansion riser has two PCI-E Gen 4 x16 slots. Along with support for Dell's 1/10/25/100GbE adapter cards, the centre slots can also handle up to two Nvidia Ampere A2 single-width, full-height 60W GPU cards. 

Not that you need any more networking power as the XR11 is geared up for some serious speeds. Lurking underneath the side riser is a quad-port 25GbE SFP28 LOM (LAN on motherboard) card and this is included as a standard feature.

Dell PowerEdge XR11 review: Storage features

Storage initially looks the least exciting feature as XR11 only supports one hot-swap 4-bay SFF drive cage. However, some crafty internal design work allows the server to support SATA, SAS and NVMe storage devices.

With many standard rack servers, you'll need to specify different backplanes but the one employed by the XR11 is universal. Along with a power connector, it has one signal connector for SATA/SAS devices and two for NVMe signals so it can be cabled in various ways depending on what you want. 

The XR11 doesn't support the BOSS (boot-optimised storage solution) S2 hot-swap card and instead, has a dedicated slot between the expansion risers for the older cold-swap BOSS S1 card. We don't have a problem with this as out at the edge, and particularly so for the front-accessed model, it's probably safer to have its dual M.2 SSDs inside the server where they can't be tampered with.

For further protection, Dell offers an optional bezel incorporating a replaceable air filter. And if the server is being deployed in military or marine environments, you can add Dell's rugged kit which comprises MIL 901E and MIL 461G brackets for the storage and PSU bays.

Dell PowerEdge XR11 review: Deployment and management

Remote monitoring and management see no compromises as the XR11 is endowed with a full-strength iDRAC9 controller which presents a smart web interface offering a wealth of information on system and component status, power usage and cooling efficiency. Along with a full hardware inventory, it provides direct access to the server's BIOS plus storage configuration and the Enterprise licence we've included in the price activates remote console and virtual media services.

The user interface found on the Dell PowerEdge

OS deployment is swift as we used the iDRAC9 remote console to map a Windows Server 2022 ISO to the server as a virtual drive. We handed this over to the Lifecycle Controller feature for installation, selected the BOSS card as the destination and had the OS up and running in 15 minutes.

The XR11 doesn't support the Quick Sync 2 module which provisions fast mobile connections over Bluetooth for walk-up diagnostics using the OpenManage Mobile (OMM) app. That wasn't much of an issue, as we could still use OMM on an iPad to connect to the server's iDRAC9 over the LAN and view all server information, alerts and the health status of hardware components. 

We run Dell's OpenManage Enterprise (OME) software in the lab as a Hyper-V VM and after it discovered the server's iDRAC9, we could monitor it, run remote control sessions and control power. We also used its Power Manager plug-in to view historical graphs of server power consumption plus thermals and could integrate it with our CloudIQ cloud account to receive server telemetry and predictive analytics. 

Dell PowerEdge XR11 review: Verdict

Deployment space at the edge will always be at a premium but the rugged XR11 can go where normal rack servers can't. Its low-profile chassis including the bezel, has a total depth of only 477mm and the front and rear mount options add extra versatility. 

Support for a 36-core Gen 3 Xeon Scalable CPU, a big memory capacity and high expansion potential allows it to deliver plenty of power out to the edge to handle demanding applications. Storage capacity may be modest but its smart design allows it to handle SATA, SAS and NVMe devices, the quad-port 25GbE network LOM adds extra value and the XR11 benefits from the full range of Dell's remote monitoring and management services.

Killexams : Dell launches mini HCI system for Azure Stack

Dell Technologies has aggressively promoted Azure Stack, Microsoft’s software package that allows enterprises to run a complete copy of the Azure cloud service within their own data center.

Now it has introduced a  hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) system designed to support Azure Stack: a 1U server that allows organizations to start small with their deployment and grow.

Formally known as Dell Integrated System for Microsoft Azure Stack HCI, the single-node system is designed for customers with smaller data-center footprints, but is expandable to support AI/ML workloads.

Up to now, Azure Stack HCI nodes were sold at least in pairs, and Dell priced the hardware based on the number of nodes and the components within it. “So if you're buying half the nodes, that would be half the price,” said Shannon Champion, vice president of product marketing for HCI products at Dell.

Dell has integrated its Dell OpenManage software with Windows Admin Center and Azure Arc, Azure’s node-management and security system. Arc manages HCI nodes and enforces regulatory compliance, and Champion said many Azure Stack customers use it to keep resources on-prem.

“The idea of Azure Stack HCI is that these are workloads that cannot run in public cloud,” she said. “And so you have a choice when you decide what workload can go to Azure. If it can't go into the public cloud then it would stay on premises and go to Azure Stack HCI OS.”

Killexams : Start Nibbling at These 8 Dividend-Paying Tech Stocks Now: They Could Soar in 2023 © Scott Olson / Getty Images

For all the new investors that emerged in 2020 with their pandemic bankrolls and had a two-year free-for-all making money without really trying, 2022 has surely been a comeuppance. While most of the gamblers in the meme stock crowd have been pushed to the sidelines, either temporarily or for good, real investors are staring at account statements and are stunned at the carnage. They likely are wondering what to do now.

Technology dominates the American economy. While the sector is taking it in the chin now, it will be back. When it does return, it could dominate a market rally later this year or in 2023. While there is a good chance the market decline is not over, it likely is closer to the end than the beginning. Now might be a good time to nibble at some of the top stocks in the sector, especially if they pay a solid dividend.

We screened our 24/7 Wall St. technology research database looking for blue chip companies that pay a dependable dividend that have extremely high bounce-back potential. The following eight stocks hit our screens. While all are rated Buy by top Wall Street firms, it is important to remember that no single analyst report should be used as a sole basis for any buying or selling decision.


Investors who are more conservative may want to consider this mega-cap tech leader, which recently posted outstanding results. Cisco Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: CSCO) designs, manufactures and sells internet protocol (IP) based networking products and services related to the communications and information technology industry worldwide.

The company provides switching products, including fixed-configuration and modular switches, and storage products that provide connectivity to end users, workstations, IP phones, wireless access points and servers, as well as next-generation network routing products that interconnect public and private wireline and mobile networks for mobile, data, voice and video applications.

Its cybersecurity products deliver clients the scope, scale and capabilities to keep up with the complexity and volume of threats. Putting security above everything helps corporations innovate while keeping their assets safe.

Shareholders receive a 3.84% dividend. Evercore ISI has its target price for Cisco Systems stock set at $56. The consensus target is $54.78. Thursday's $40.61 closing share price was almost 4% higher on the day.


This company continues to be a huge player in the fiber optic world. Corning Inc. (NYSE: GLW) is a technology pioneer that manufactures LCD glass for flat-panel displays for multiple product lines.

Telecommunications (30% of sales) produces optical fiber and cable, component hardware and equipment, and photonic components for the telecommunications, CATV and networking industry. In addition, the company’s Environmental Technologies division (12% of sales) produces specialized glass, glass ceramic and polymer-based products for the automotive industry.

Investors receive a 3.61% dividend. UBS's $40 price target compares to the $38.72 consensus target for Corning stock. The shares closed on Thursday at $30.58.

Dell Technologies

This high-quality company pays a solid dividend and its shares have been hit hard. Dell Technologies Inc. (NYSE: DELL) designs, develops, manufactures, markets, sells and supports information technology (IT) hardware, software and services solutions worldwide. It operates through three segments.

Infrastructure Solutions Group provides traditional and next-generation storage solutions, and rack, blade, tower and hyperscale servers. It also offers networking products and services that help its business customers to transform and modernize their infrastructure, mobilize and enrich end-user experiences and accelerate business applications and processes. It also offers attached software and peripherals, as well as support and deployment, configuration and extended warranty services.

Dell's The Client Solutions Group offers desktops, notebooks and workstations; displays and projectors; attached and third-party software and peripherals; as well as support and deployment, configuration and extended warranty services.

The VMware segment supports customers in the areas of hybrid and multi-cloud, modern applications, networking, security and digital workspaces, helping customers to manage IT resources across private clouds and complex multi-cloud, multi-device environments.

Dell also provides information security and cloud software and infrastructure-as-a-service solutions that enable customers to migrate, run, and manage mission-critical applications in cloud-based IT environments.

The dividend yield is 3.83%. The Credit Suisse price target is $60, while the consensus target is $55.21. The final Dell Technologies stock trade for Thursday was almost 4% higher at $34.99.


Legendary investor Warren Buffett stunned Wall Street earlier this year when Berkshire Hathaway reported a purchase of 121 million shares of the venerable tech giant. HP Inc. (NYSE: HPQ) provides personal computing and other access devices, imaging and printing products and related technologies, solutions and services in the United States and internationally. It serves individual consumers, small and medium-sized businesses and large enterprises, including customers in the government, health and education sectors.

HP's Personal Systems segment offers commercial and consumer desktop and notebook personal computers, workstations, thin clients, commercial mobility devices, retail point-of-sale systems, displays and other related accessories, software, support and services. The Printing segment provides consumer and commercial printer hardware, supplies, solutions and services, as well as scanning devices. And the Corporate Investments segment includes HP Labs and business incubation projects.

HP stock investors receive a 4.04% dividend. The $33 Credit Suisse target price is higher than the $30.49 consensus target. The stock closed 5% higher on Thursday at $26.02.


This blue chip giant offers investors an incredibly solid entry point, a massive dividend and a degree of safety for investors who are more conservative. International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE: IBM) provides integrated solutions and services worldwide through these four business segments.

The Software segment offers hybrid cloud platform and software solutions, such as Red Hat, an enterprise open-source solutions; software for business automation, AIOps and management, integration, and application servers; data and artificial intelligence solutions; and security software and services for threat, data and identity. This segment also provides transaction processing software that supports clients' mission-critical and on-premise workloads in banking, airlines and retail industries.

The Consulting segment offers business transformation services, including strategy, business process design and operations, data and analytics, and system integration services; technology consulting services; and application and cloud platform services.

The Infrastructure segment provides on-premises and cloud-based server and storage solutions for its clients' mission-critical and regulated workloads; and support services and solutions for hybrid cloud infrastructure, as well as remanufacturing and remarketing services for used equipment.

The Financing segment offers lease, installment payment, loan financing and short-term working capital financing services.

IBM's second-quarter revenue of $15.5 billion was up sharply from a year ago and topped the consensus forecast. Profits also were ahead of analysts’ expectations.

Shareholders receive a 5.60% dividend. IBM stock has a $155 price target at BofA Securities. That is well above the $141.56 consensus target and Thursday’s closing print of $121.79, which was up close to 4% on the day.

Juniper Networks

This is another familiar name that could offer among the best total return potential. Juniper Networks Inc. (NYSE: JNPR) designs, develops and sells network products and services worldwide. The company offers various routing products, such as ACX series universal access routers to deploy new high-bandwidth services; MX series Ethernet routers that function as a universal edge platform; PTX series packet transport routers; and NorthStar controllers.

Juniper Networks also provides switching products, including EX series Ethernet switches to address the access, aggregation and core layer switching requirements of micro branch, branch office, and campus environments; QFX series of core, spine and top-of-rack data center switches; and Juniper access points, which provide wireless access and performance.

In addition, the company offers security products including SRX series services gateways for the data center; Branch SRX family provides an integrated firewall and next-generation firewall; virtual firewall that delivers various features of physical firewalls; and advanced malware protection, a cloud-based service and Juniper ATP.

Juniper Networks stock comes with a 3.25% dividend. Wells Fargo's $32 price target is shy of the $32.71 consensus target. The shares closed at $26.32 on Thursday.


This is a conservative way for investors to participate in the massive cloud growth, and the company posted stellar second-quarter results. Microsoft Inc. (NASDAQ: MSFT) manufactures, licenses and supports a wide range of software products. The company has transformed its business model from a component-driven model (personal computer, server) to one driven by the need for cloud capacity.

Many Wall Street analysts agree that Microsoft has become a clear number two in the public or hyper-scale cloud infrastructure market with Azure, which is the company’s cloud computing platform offerings, and which continues growing at triple-digit levels. Some have flagged Azure as the biggest rival to Amazon's AWS service.

Some analysts maintain that Microsoft is discounting Azure for large enterprises, so that Azure may be cheaper than AWS for larger users. The cloud was big in exact earnings reports and will remain a growing part of the software giant's earnings profile.

Investors receive a 1.20% dividend. The Jefferies team has a conservative $275 price target, compared with the $329.56 consensus target. Microsoft stock closed on Thursday at $234.24.


This top software stock has backed up recently and is offering an attractive entry point. Oracle Corp. (NYSE: ORCL) develops, manufactures, markets, sells, hosts and supports database and middleware software, application software, cloud infrastructure, hardware systems and related services worldwide.

The company licenses its Oracle Database software to customers, which is designed to enable reliable and secure storage, retrieval and manipulation of various forms of data. Its Oracle Fusion Middleware software aims to build, deploy, secure, access and integrate business applications, as well as automate their business processes.

Oracle recently announced that it would acquire Cerner, a leading provider of digital information systems used within hospitals and health systems to enable medical professionals to deliver better healthcare to individual patients and communities. The all-cash tender offer has approximately $28.3 billion in equity value.

The company pays a 2.05% dividend. The J.P. Morgan price objective is $84, though Oracle stock has a consensus target of $87.89. On Thursday, the closing share price was $65.20.

We avoided semiconductor stocks for the time being, as the new government restrictions on sales to Chinese companies could be putting a big dent in sales. While we are not ready to nibble in that space, we will be closely watching third-quarter results of the top names. The software, networking and information technology leaders we did focus on could be the first to take off when the selling reverses.

Killexams : Inside Dell Technologies’ zero-trust approach

Dell Technologies is doubling down on zero-trust security with a reference model that is touted to help enterprises implement the security model effectively.

Speaking at a virtual briefing with Asia-Pacific media, Dell’s global chief technology officer John Roese said the model is part of the company’s approach towards a modern security strategy, starting with having a foundation of trust.

“Every IT outcome is based on consuming technology from someone. It turns out that knowing who that someone is, how they built that product, how it got to you and whether it was compromised, is extremely important,” he said.

To that, Roese noted Dell’s investment in building one of the world’s largest and most robust supply chains, along with products that embed deep levels of security. Hardware roots of trust and attestation, as well as failsafe mechanisms are also part of the company’s product development efforts, he added.

The second aspect of Dell’s approach is the zero-trust architecture itself, which will enable organisations to guard against threat actors more effectively than traditional perimeter and product-led security approaches, Roese said.

“And so, we are investing heavily across the entire portfolio in our services offerings and in our ecosystem with one view, that is, to accelerate and simplify the adoption of zero trust by enterprises,” he added.

The third and last aspect is cyber recovery, which is “based on the truth that there is no such thing as absolute security”, Roese said.

Noting that there are no security technologies or architectures that don’t fail and that there’s always room for human error and misconfigurations, Roese said organisations must have an answer when things go south.

“We are now in an era where it is incredibly important to have in every IT architecture a cyber recovery capability because of the significant risk that you could be breached and having that kind of capability allows you to survive and recover from it,” he said.

Paradigm shifts with zero trust

Although zero trust is not new, Roese said the concept is confusing and misunderstood, calling for the need to simplify how zero trust works from a technical perspective through three paradigm shifts.

The first is that in a zero trust architecture, continuous authentication of devices, people, applications and even data, which used to be optional, is now mandatory.

“That is a big shift, but if you go from an environment where unknown entities could be on your infrastructure, to a zero-trust environment that just simply doesn't allow that, your security posture improves dramatically,” Roese said.

The second paradigm shift is with respect to policy, with security architectures today primarily focused on policy controls that prevent known bad behaviour.

“In the security world, there are only three things that exist – the known good, the known bad, and the unknown,” Roese said. “And today’s architectures attempt to apply policy and controls to prevent known bad behaviour and then to discover in the unknown what could be known bad and stop it.

“The problem with that approach is it is always reactive. It cannot deal with a zero-day event. It is slow to respond. And so, the second shift with zero trust is to change policy roles from preventing known bad to defining known good behaviour and preventing everything else.”

That is easier said than done, however, as most organisations do not understand how their applications and systems work. But in a zero trust architecture, Roese said, using advanced machine intelligence to automate security processes can help to define known good behaviour.

The third paradigm shift deals with threat response and management. Today, many threat detection and management systems sit outside of the infrastructure, keeping an eye on things from the outside through telemetry.

“It is extremely hard to do that, and it requires enormous amounts of data and analytics, but in zero trust, because the only things that are allowed to be on the infrastructure are known authenticated entities and you have well-defined policy that defines known good behaviour, your threat management can be deeply embedded, because all it’s looking for is an unauthorised entity,” Roese said.

Dell’s zero-trust reference model

There are three components in Dell’s zero trust reference model. The first element is that zero trust should be defined and driven by business controls, or business rules about what systems should do.

“Examples would be, I want all data in Europe to be pushed to a European datacentre only or I would like only engineers to access my labs,” Roese said. “They have nothing to do with technology, but in zero trust, it is critical that you define them.”

The next element is to convert business controls to technology and action, which can be done via a control plane that consists of identity management, policy management and threat management tools.

Roese said those tools already exist today but in zero trust, they exist together in a common control plane. “The control plane, if done properly, is the same control plane for a public cloud or a private cloud or edge cloud or anything in your environment.

“Devices are all subordinate and controlled by that common control plane and because identity, policy and threat management are now centrally controlled, the definition of an authenticated user whether he’s in a public cloud or private environment is the same.

“The policy roles can be implemented consistently whether you’re coming in through remote access or directly attached to a lab network, and your ability to see the behaviour of your enterprise because threat management has aggregated also becomes significantly better,” he added.

To ease zero trust adoption, Dell will be establishing a zero-trust centre of excellence in the spring of 2023 at DreamPort, the US government’s premier cyber security innovation facility.

Located in Columbia, Maryland, the centre will focus on providing global commercial enterprises and government customers a place to validate their zero-trust workloads and applications.

Roese said the architecture that Dell will be using for the centre was developed with the US Department of Defense and the US government, which is one of the leading implementers of zero trust architectures.

“The net result is that we will now have a capability to essentially pre-integrate and predefined much of the reference architecture customers need to make zero trust real,” he added.

Killexams : Dell Technologies transforms the edge with project frontier software platform
Cloud computing platform

ISV partner ecosystem to simplify the deployment of software and applications at the manufacturing edge


Image: Stockfresh

In association with Dell Technologies

Dell Technologies introduces Project Frontier, which will deliver an edge operations software platform, integrated with Dell’s edge portfolio, for customers to more securely manage and orchestrate edge applications and infrastructure for deployments at global scale.

The complexities of edge operations – in locations from manufacturing floors and retail stores to remote wind turbines – are growing as more organisations want to manage and secure data at the source but have limited IT support to do it. According to a 2022 IDC survey, 42% of businesses say the most challenging aspect of edge deployments is putting together an entire edge solution. With the amount of data generated growing nine times annually and expected to reach 221 exabytes by 2026, organisations need a simple and effective way to manage and secure the diverse ecosystem of edge technologies.

“We’re seeing exponential growth in applications running at the edge, making edge the next frontier of business transformation – where devices, infrastructure and data come together to deliver real-time insights at scale,” said Gil Shneorson, senior vice president of edge solutions, Dell Technologies. “With this growth, comes complexity. It’s not feasible to have IT staff deployed at every edge location. Our decades of edge experience combined with our new solutions help customers simplify their edge and streamline their data to gain insights ranging from factory safety and the speed and precision of patient care in hospitals, while providing more choice in how they realize their edge and multicloud technologies.”

Killexams : How Dell’s Zero Trust Center of Excellence secures multicloud environments

Did you miss a session from MetaBeat 2022? Head over to the on-demand library for all of our featured sessions here.

How do you know if you’re getting zero trust right? While many organizations have invested in purpose-built zero-trust security products, controlling user access isn’t just about deploying a software solution, but actively managing user access to data wherever it lives in the environment.

This involves building new controls and procedures from scratch. It’s a challenge that Dell Technologies recognizes and aims to address with a new solution. 

Today, Dell announced the Zero Trust Center of Excellence in partnership with CyberPoint international and the Maryland Innovation Security Institute. The center will open in Spring 2023 at DreamPort in at the U.S. Cyber Commands innovation center. 

The center will provide enterprises with a secure data center to validate zero-trust use cases and assess the maturity of their zero-trust strategies.

Helping sluggish zero-trust adoption 

Dell’s announcement comes as more organizations are running into roadblocks with their zero-trust strategies

While Okta finds that the number of companies with a zero-trust initiative already underway more than doubled from 24% in 2021 to 55% in 2022, other research indicates only 21% of organizations have adopted zero trust as a foundational model across the enterprise. 

Dell’s new service will provide organizations with a space to test the implementation of zero trust as a foundational model, so they can build a true zero-trust strategy from scratch, that’s designed to support a multicloud environment. 

“In a multicloud world, an organization’s cybersecurity strategy must transcend its infrastructure and extend to its applications and data,” said John Roese, Global CTO of Dell Technologies. “We believe a zero-trust strategy is the best path forward. Dell has the proven IT and security foundation, technology integration experience, and extensive global partner ecosystem to help simplify customers’ cybersecurity transformations.”

More broadly, the new center has the capacity to help accelerate the development of new zero-trust solutions that enterprises can leverage to protect their environments against identity-based threats. 

It’s worth noting that the center will also complement Dell Cybersecurity Advisory Services’ zero-trust service, which provides organizations with a roadmap to zero trust based on their existing security assets. 

The zero-trust market 

As identity-based threats continue to rise, the zero-trust market continues to pick up steam, with researchers expecting the market to grow from a value of $27.4 billion in 2022 to $60.7 billion by 2027. 

CrowdStrike and Palo Alto Networks are leading in defining the space, offering solutions for zero-trust network access (ZTNA) for continuously verifying user access in real-time.

CrowdStrike reports $1.45 billion in revenue for the full fiscal year 2022, while Palo Alto Networks announced total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2022 of $1.6 billion. 

At this stage, Dell is playing more of a backseat role in the zero-trust market, opting to provide organizations with guidance and support from the Zero Trust Center of Excellence, and Dell Cybersecurity Advisory Services. It hopes to help orgs learn how they can Improve their own zero-trust strategies rather than offering a particular software solution. 

VentureBeat's mission is to be a digital town square for technical decision-makers to gain knowledge about transformative enterprise technology and transact. Discover our Briefings.

Dell Technologies has announced Project Frontier. The software platform was designed to help companies gain more control over edge computing environments.

Dell Technologies sees edge computing as a key solution for businesses that want to gain a competitive advantage. The new Project Frontier platform allows organizations to securely manage edge infrastructures and applications at scale.

With the platform, Dell Technologies aims to eliminate all complexity surrounding edge computing. By facilitating management from a central location and environment, administrators no longer need to be present at edge locations.


Companies deploying Frontier gain a centralized operations center for their entire edge environment, be it regional or global. The platform makes it possible to securely onboard new applications and devices anywhere within the edge environment, including the appropriate network, compute and storage functionality.

The open software platform allows customers to add their own mix of applications, IoT frameworks, OT solutions, multicloud environments and other technologies. Frontier’s open design makes it suitable for existing and new use cases for edge computing.

In terms of security, Frontier applies Zero Trust to edge applications, data and underlying infrastructure. The Zero Trust architecture is applied throughout the entire structure of the edge infrastructure in question, from development environments to large-scale deployments. The software platform also features end-to-end security for the underlying chain.

The platform’s centralized management ensures greater efficiency and reliability for all operations within the edge environment, Dell Technologies said. The platform also eliminates the need for onsite IT expertise. Automation helps streamline edge deployment operations for up to thousands of locations.

In addition, the integration of edge computing and storage hardware provides maintenance capabilities and increased security. Dell experts in 170 countries worldwide offer planning and support services. The partners help customers design their edge deployments and establish roadmaps for scaling infrastructure to meet demands from end users.

Solutions and dedicated hardware

Project Frontier is supported by a range of tools and hardware. Within the framework, Dell Technologies offers a Dell Validated Design for Manufacturing Edge Solution. The solution is similar to a blueprint for edge deployments in manufacturing environments. The solution provides access to Dell-validated partner applications, including solutions for network security and digital twins.

On the hardware front, Frontier is supported by the Dell PowerEdge XR4000, among other systems. According to the tech giant, the XR4000 is one of the most compact servers it has ever sold. The server is 60 percent shorter than traditional datacenter servers, its size comparable to a shoebox.

The PowerEdge XR4000 comes in two flavours: a wide version that can be rack-mounted, and a compact version that can be mounted on room walls and ceilings. Furthermore, the server’s slots are expandable and capable of withstanding extreme weather conditions.

Under the hood, you’ll find Intel Xeon D processors and the necessary GPUs for edge workloads. The server also powers the new Dell VxRail rugged modular nodes for high performance and scalability in high latency, low bandwidth locations.

Furthermore, employees can use Project Frontier at edge locations with the new Latitude 7230 Rugged Extreme Tablet. The tablet is protected against dust, water and extreme temperatures in the harshest environments.

Killexams : Dell XPS 13 (2022) review

Dell XPS 13 (2022): Two minute review

The Dell XPS 13 (2022) has huge shoes to fill, but while it does what it sets out to do very well, there are going to be those who are going to be sorely disappointed by some of the changes Dell makes to the XPS 13 (2022), and some of these are going to be absolute deal breakers.

But the XPS 13 (2022) deserves to be judged on its own merits, rather than solely in comparison to the Dell XPS 13 (Late 2020), this model's immediate predecessor. This is especially the case since that model is arguably the best laptop in its class.
