UNDERSTANDING YOUR DELL EMC UNITY POST-WARRANTY SUPPORT CHOICES
Were you caught rapidly once Dell EMC proclaimed the End of service life for Unity arrays? You weren’t alone. You would possibly assume that your next course of action is to upgrade to the most recent and most excellent hardware that may take Unity’s place. However, that’s not the case. With EMC Unity post-warranty support, you’ll be able to keep your IT infrastructure intact and skip the EOSL-induced outlay.
WHAT’S EOSL ALL ABOUT?
Many people wrongly assume that end of service life (EOSL) announcement is created once the hardware in question is obsolete. That’s not the case in any respect. Unity’s replacement is just a tiny iteration additional advanced, which means that your current arrays still represent leading-edge technology. Why replace them if that’s the case?
The truth is that makers like Dell EMC would like their customers to shop for into the service lifecycle. Their profit is betrothed in you upgrading frequently. If you don’t, then their bottom line plummets. That’s their entire business model – manufacture, maintain, retire, then rinse and repeat.
However, retired systems don’t suffer from inherent operability or responsibility flaws. Thus there’s hardly any reason to contemplate upgrading. It’s ex gratia, not necessary.
During the initial unleash of the merchandise, and the succeeding few years, you’ve got full support from the first instrumentality manufacturer (OEM). It sometimes lasts from the initial product rollout till the asset is concerning three years recent. Round the three-year mark, the manufacturer can announce the product’s End of the sale (EOS). Once this happens, the hardware is no longer being factory-made. However, it’s still supported. You will conjointly hear this termed End of availability (EOA).
From this time, some makers can still offer support and repair as traditional. However, they’re going to begin encouraging customers to start upgrading.
Next, we’ve got End of life (EOL). It is often generally around the fifth year since the system launched, and also, the manufacturer sometimes stops most of their activities, together with support and updates, at this time. If you wish manufacturer support, you’ll pay a premium for it.
Finally, we’ve got the official End of service life, which marks the purpose of formally retiring the hardware. If you do not have extended assurance already, you can’t get one from the manufacturer at this time. However, the hardware is perhaps solely six years recent with lots of prices and use left in it. It is often wherever post-warranty support enters the image.
WHAT IS EMC UNITY POST-WARRANTY SUPPORT?
Post-warranty support is what it appears like – support for IT hardware delivered once the first manufacturer’s assurance expires. You will be additional at home with it as third-party maintenance (TPM). However, will post-warranty support work, though?
At Navigator Systems, we believe that your hardware features a ton left to allow correct management and maintenance will assist you in reaching the most effective doable ROI. It’s exceptionally all concerning decelerating the refresh cycle. Here’s what EMC Unity post-warranty support will do for your organization:
• YOUR INVESTMENT:
IT hardware investments are implausibly massive. However, the regular refresh cycle doesn’t permit you to maximize the comeback thereon investment. With post-warranty support, you extend the life of your instrumentality by years, boosting ROI considerably.
• COST OF OWNERSHIP:
The total price of possession is reciprocally proportional to the length of your time you own the instrumentality. We tend to assist you in cutting back the total cost of living through proactive maintenance and by providing further service whenever necessary.
• DECISION-MAKING TIME:
If you follow the traditional hardware refresh cycle, there’s not plenty of your time to check your choices. The likelihood is brilliant; you’ll follow the OEM’s recommendation, albeit there’s one thing offered that may suit your desires, budget, or goals higher. With the Navigator system’s post-warranty support, you gain the time necessary to form well-read calls relating to your IT assets.
• BOOST LIFESPAN:
Why replace your expensive IT assets simply 3 or 5 years once investment in them? Don’t let the OEM’s recommendation force your hand. Bear in mind – this is often ex gratia. And, with EMC Unity post-warranty support, you’ll be able to relish sturdy support and access to necessary technical experience for years once the official finish of service life announcement.

New third-generation Xeon Scalable processor called Ice Lake
The 10 nanometer-based CPU is delivering up to 40 cores per processor.
The processors also add Intel SGX (Software Guard Extensions) for built-in security, as well as Intel Crypto Acceleration. It includes Intel’s DL Boost for AI acceleration.
Intel says that with hardware and software optimizations, Ice Lake delivers 74 percent faster AI performance compared with the prior generation. Compared to the third-generation AMD Epyc 7763, Intel says the platform delivers up to 1.5 times higher performance across a broad mix of 20 popular AI workloads. Compared to the Nvidia A100 GPU, it says it delivers up to 1.3 times higher performance on a broad mix of 20 popular AI workloads.
Intel SGX, and security has the technology can protect as much as 1 terabyte of code and data in private memory areas called enclaves.
Ice Lake chips also feature cryptographic acceleration that promises to let the chip deliver both security and performance.
Intel Ice Lake vs. Intel Cascade Lake
Some of the key differences between Intel’s new 3rd gen Xeon CPUs with Intel’s 2nd gen Xeon Scalable processors. The below table highlights the processor architecture, cache latencies, memory controller, memory latency, and capacity.
The platform supports up to six terabytes of system memory per socket, up to eight channels of DDR4-3200 memory per socket, and up to 64 lanes of PCIe Gen4 per socket.
Ice Lake delivers an average 46 percent performance increase on popular data center workloads
Intel produces network-optimized “N-SKUs” to support diverse network environments. The new processors deliver on average up to 62 percent more performance on a range of broadly-deployed network and 5G workloads over the prior generation, Intel says. More than 15 major telecom equipment manufacturers and communications service providers are readying POCs and networking deployments with Ice Lake.
Ice Lake delivers up to 1.56 times more AI inference performance for image classification than the prior generations, Intel says. This makes it suitable for AI, complex image or video analytics, and consolidated workloads at the edge.
Intel Optane SSD Storage:
Intel increased the capacity of the drive which started at 375GB, tops at 1.5TB. Optane SSDs perfect companion for slower media. we primarily designed for endurance and frequently used in a two-tier architecture. Optane SSDs are often set up to absorb all of the writes in a system, protecting larger, slower media behind it. These can be QLC SSDs for instance, that perform well for read-heavy workloads, but don’t have much endurance or write performance.
vSAN, Azure HCI, StorONE, and many others are well adept at making multi-tier work well.
PMem: Intel Optane Persistent Memory
A way to bridge the gap between volatile DRAM and high-performance SSDs. PMem 200 is quoted to deliver 32% more memory bandwidth than Gen1. New modules are optimized for the new 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Processors, making the combination, with Intel SSDs.
In the memory bandwidth throughput, with PMem 200 picking up 3,200 MT/s support.
Core count starts at 16 cores and goes up to 40. With the first PMem, users could add 3TB of PMem for a total memory per socket of 4.5TB, now the total is 6TB per socket, with 4TB of PMem 200 being added. The maximum thermal design power dropped from 18W to 15W. And the newest persistent memory comes with eADR, extended Asynchronous DRAM Refresh.
The MemVerge Memory Machine management interface can help administrators through a number of use cases:
The snapshot GUI is used to quickly bring back the database and/or troubleshoot the cause. The database log and Memory Machine Dashboard data determine the time of the crash, allowing the admin to select and restore a snapshot that is closest to the crash time. Developers can then use that restored instance for debugging.
Accelerating Animation & VFX with Memory DVR:
Artists want to explore different options on a base Maya scene. They load the base scene, apply the changes, and save it as a different project. They can save many separate scenes, but to show these options they must be repetitively reloaded, which takes a long time.
With Memory DVR functionality, load a base scene once, take a snapshot as the basic snapshot, then apply changes and take another snapshot. To apply a different effect, simply restore the snapshot, edit, and take another snapshot. The restore speed of in-memory snapshots is a few seconds compared to minutes for reloading scenes from storage.
Accelerating Genomic Analytics with Memory DVR:
Scientists want to experiment with a machine learning algorithm using different parameter settings. They load the data, set the parameter, run the algorithm, and check out the results. if the results are not good, the data is reloaded, a different set of parameters is applied, and the algorithm is run again.
With Memory DVR functionality, load the data once and take a snapshot. From that point on, if the results are not good, restore the base data and another run with new parameters is done in seconds.
Intel Agilex FPGAs that leverage PCIe Gen4.
Intel Agilex FPGA family leverages heterogeneous 3D system-in-package (SiP) technology to integrate Intel’s first FPGA fabric built on 10nm process technology and 2nd Gen Intel Hyperflex FPGA Architecture to deliver up to 40% higher performance1 or up to 40% lower power1 for applications in Data Center, Networking, and Edge compute.

Instead of disposing of used servers, most companies choose to sell them to resellers and collectors. Used server for sale are usually refurbished and may be dealt with with accessories such as housing, cabinets, cooling fans, power strips, LCD monitors, etc. To avoid hassles associated with poor servers, keep a few things in mind.
Are you a small business owner who needs to upgrade your computer system in your office or an IT professional who needs to replace multi-core servers in your company? Determine the role of the server in your business. If you need servers for files and printers only, a small, cheaper server will suffice. However, if your company uses dozens of applications, and an up-to-date server can be your option.
Specifications to be considered include a processor, operating system, memory, hard disk, and video adapter. The general rule for processor and memory specs is that the higher the number, the faster the machine. You can choose among several operating systems available for servers, such as Windows Server or Microsoft Small Business Server (SBS). Before purchasing, check whether the hard disk and video adapter is compatible with the server itself and your system.
Place to buy
There are several ways to look for brand new and Used servers for sale. First is to look into online directories that feature a comprehensive list of server resellers and distributors in your area. You can also ask the manufacturer of your current system for older models that were not sold or traded in for upgrades. Buyers can also visit government auctions which liquidates brand new servers.
A vendor that offers enhancements
Please select at least three vendors from your list and check whether they offer extras for servers. These enhancements may refer to accessories that are not provided when buying brand new servers. Pick the vendor that offers “redundancy” in the form of extra hard drives, power supplies, and fans. Some used server packages may also include free antivirus software.
Purchasing a server should be a long term investment. Compare different price ranges and determine which gives you the best value for your money. A competitive price does not mean the lowest price, but the price is relevant to the quality.
Unless the server is not that critical to your business, you should consider the warranty that comes with it. Choose Used servers for sale with a warranty so you will be treated as a priority customer during repairs. Used servers without warranty will make you wait for about 5 weeks or more when being repaired.
