Dell EMC’s 2020 Server Trends & Observations

The tailwinds across West Texas continue to hint at IT growth during this age of digital transformation. Humans have developed an insatiable appetite for compute. Whether it be the latest gadget on your wrist, in your hand, in your car, at home, in the office office, or at the data center – compute is at the heart of almost everything that touches our everyday life. Compute has been the fuel of the digital revolution. But the question remains, how do we keep IT advancing?

In April 2005, Gordon Moore stated in an interview that Moore’s Law cannot be sustained indefinitely: “It can’t continue forever. The nature of exponentials is that you push them out and eventually disaster happens.” Humans are a resilient species, constantly innovating, and in the case of Moore’s Law, finding ways to delay the inevitable. In the world of computer architecture and in particular Server, it is this quest to avoid the “eventual disaster” that propels us to advance technology and to observe the challenges around us so we can delay (or work around) the inevitable.

With that said, at Dell EMC in the Server and Infrastructure group, our outstanding group of senior technologists have come up with their 2020 edition of Dell EMC’s 2020 Server Trends & Observations Report found here (pdf):

Dell EMC’s 2020 Server Trends & Observations Report

In this report the 12 biggest trends and observations from “data is king” to “the rack’s the limit” to “money for nothing, chips for free” and more are covered in more detail than can be conveyed in a short blog post.

If you have questions, want to go deeper, or want to understand the Dell EMC server family, please contact one of our friendly sales representatives. For more musings please follow me on LinkedIn or visit my other blogs.

Hope you enjoy this year’s edition.

Device limit per user in Enrollment profiles not being enforced MAM-only

Custom Server Property for MAM Only Device Register Limit:

1. If the custom server property number.of.mam.devices.per.user exists, it is used as MAM Device Register Limit. If it is 0, there is no limitation.

2. The server property number.of.devices.per.user is used for MDM Device Enroll Limit. It is un-related and independent with MAM Device Register Limit. !screenshot-1.png|thumbnail!

3. When Device register request (/Citrix/Device/v1/Register) is received, the reigister is rejected if the current registered devices is already equal to/greater than the MAM Device Register Limit.

4. If the MAM device id already in the system, skip the checked

5. If the limitation is over, 409 is returned.

To do this, go to Server Properties, add a new Custom Server Property and set the property name to number.of.mam.devices.per.use . Set the value to the number you wish. If set to ‘0’, this will set it to unlimited. Save and restart the XMS server

Does “Blocked” Attack Indicate System Infection?

I need a solution

We use the Cloud version of Symantec Endpoint Protection (Small Business Edition) on several servers running Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials as the server OS.  On a couple of the servers, we continue to receive warning alerts from SEP that state “System Infected” under the “Attack Signature” column.  Yet all of the intrusions have a status of “Blocked” on the same report.  Does this mean that the servers are actually infected or that the attempted intrusions were blocked and therefore are not on the server at all?

Should we run a stronger tool like SymDiag on these servers?

I find the terminology here rather confusing and inconsistent.  Any assistance you can offer will be greatly appreciated.  I’m not sure if there is something to worry about here or not.
