  • Dell OEM XL Program
    Love the flexibility of a white box solution, but hate the time it takes to manage and source all of the components? The Dell OEM XL Program provides product managers with the stability, longevity, support and visibility they need to have better platform control for their products. Product managers can also count on a 12 month transition period to next generation Dell products providing ample time to test and transition their product to a new and improved platform.
    As a member of the Intel® Intelligent Systems Alliance, Dell OEM is able to offer select OEM Ready servers and workstations built with Intel® Embedded CPUs. This allows Dell to extend product road maps and lock down, manage and monitor certain components. Greater platform stability is provided through consistent and predictable CPUs, graphics cards, motherboards, controllers, firmware, BIOS, and hard drive capacities to name a few. OEMs can also choose if they want to take most BIOS and firmware updates based on their needs.

  • Dell OEM Branding Program
    Now available through Avnet, the Dell OEM Branding portfolio gives OEMs the option to brand the Dell server powering their solution to look as if it was designed and built by them. Dell has a variety of branding options to suit your needs:
    OEM Ready - Leverage Dell's regulatory and compliance certifications on PowerEdge servers without the Dell logos, labels or other visible branding. The OEM Ready branding option gives OEMs the flexibility to brand everything themselves, or have Avnet do it for them, on generic bezels, BIOs, packaging and/or splash screens.
    OEM Express - This simplified bezel branding option allows OEMs to choose from 5 painted bezel colors and 3 badge shapes. Dell or Avnet can create a custom logo for these 1U and 2U bezel options.
    OEM Plus - OEMs who need a higher level of customization should choose this branding option. Bezel options include custom painted colors, custom image, and custom printing on up to 2 badges. Additional rebranding areas are available.
    OEM Custom - This is the highest level of customization with branding options ranging from custom bezel mechanical design to custom colors and full bezel graphics.
    Contact the Avnet Dell OEM team to learn more about these capabilities!
