The Dell PowerEdge M1000e Modular Blade Enclosure is the rock-solid foundation for Dell’s blade server architecture, providing an extremely reliable, flexible and efficient platform for building any IT infrastructure. Designed for data centers in need of maximum density, efficiency and manageability, the PowerEdge M series integrates servers, storage, networking and management into a single chassis to deliver greater simplicity, efficiency and versatility.
Additional I/O slots and switch options give you the flexibility you need to meet ever-increasing demands for I/O consumption. Dell’s FlexIO modular switch technology lets you easily scale to provide additional uplink and stacking functionality — no need to waste your current investment with a “rip and replace” upgrade.
Easy-to-use, powerful management tools
Reduce the cost and complexity of managing computing resources so you can focus on growing your business or managing your organization with features like:
Centralized Chassis Management Controller (CMC) modules for redundant, secure access paths let IT admins manage multiple enclosures and blades from a single interface.
Dynamic and granular power management so you have the capability to set power thresholds to help ensure your blades operate within your specific power envelope.
Real-time reporting for enclosure and blade power consumption, as well as the ability to prioritize blade slots for power, providing you with optimal control over power resources.
Intelligent network and storage integration
Blade chassis integrate edge networking for reduced cabling, but Dell Blades ensure seamless connectivity into all networked environments without compromising on features or adding significant complexity to the management tier.
Seamlessly Integration into any LAN or SAN environment
Replace or retask hardware without re-zoning or reconfiguring the network
Switch, pass-through and port aggregator options for maximum investment protection
1GbE and 10GbE, Converged Ethernet, Fibre Channel, DDR, QDR, FDR and FDR10 InfiniBand
Form factor: 10U modular enclosure holds up to eight full-height, sixteen half-height, or thirty two quarter-height blade servers 44.0cm (17.3”) H x 44.7cm (17.6”) W x 75.4cm (29.7”)D Weight: Empty chassis only—98lb, Chassis with all rear modules (IOMs, PSUs, CMCs, KVM)—176lb, Max fully loaded with blades and rear modules—394lb
"M1000e chassis supports up to six 3000W high-efficiency power supplies, 2700W high-efficiency power supplies or up to six -48V DC 2700W power supplies. Based on Dell’s Energy Smart technologies, the M1000e power supplies deliver greater levels of efficiency, even at low levels of utilization. Supported power supply configurations include: 3+3 and 2+2 (grid redundancy)2+1, 3+1, 4+2, and 5+1 (power supply redundancy) 2+0 and 3+0 (non-redundant mode) The M1000e chassis supports dynamic power supply engagement (DPSE) mode, which if enabled, puts lightly loaded power supplies into standby mode, driving up the utilization and the efficiency of the active supplies. Dell supports either 110–120V or 208–240V AC power supply input and supports a wide range of power distribution options. Dell recommends 208–240V AC for all production environments."
"M1000e chassis comes standard with nine hot-pluggable, redundant fan modules: Based on Dell Energy Smart Technologies, M1000e fans are a breakthrough in power and cooling efficiency. The fans deliver low power consumption, but also use next generation fan technologies to ensure the lowest possible amount of fresh air is consumed to cool the enclosure,"
"One (standard) or a second optional (redundant) Chassis Management Controller(s) (CMC)Single, secure interface for inventory, configuration, monitoring, and alerting for the chassis and all components. Multi-chassis management that allows up to nine chassis and 288 servers to be managed from a single, embedded, agent-less interface. Automated and embedded one-to-many blade BIOS and firmware updates, independent of the operating system through the Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) One-to-many blade server BIOS capture and replication. Real-time power/thermal monitoring and management. Real-time system AC power consumption with resettable peak and minimum values.System-level power limiting and slot-based power prioritization. DPSE functionality to help lower overall system power consumption by ensuring power supplies run at their optimal efficiency points.Fan speed control using Dell’s enhanced efficiency technologies to ensure fans are delivering optimal cooling while minimizing power consumption and airflow. Secure web (SSL) and command-line (Telnet/SSH) interfaces. Multiple levels of user roles and permissions, including integration into Microsoft® Active Directory® Services and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) services for authentication.Two 10/100/1000Mb Ethernet ports + one serial port. Single point of connection from management network to iDRAC on each of the servers and the management interfaces on the integrated I/O modules. Second Ethernet port supports daisy chaining of CMCs for improved cable management. Optional Integrated Avocent® keyboard, video and mouse (iKVM) switch. Enables USB keyboard/mouse and video port on front control panel.
