2-socket blade server delivers highly available compute, I/O and memory densities to data center workloads

Scalable. Manageable. Flexible.

Ultra-efficient PowerEdge M630 combines up to 28 cores of Intel processing power, 4 drive-bays of high-speed local storage, 8 ports of 10GbE throughput and 24 DIMMs of DDR4 memory into a dense, easy-to-manage platform ideal for data center workloads.


PowerEdge M630 blade server

Tailor IT convergence

  • Match your workloads bandwidth needs with up to three separate I/O cards that range from Infiniband®, to Fibre Channel, to converged or 10GbE Ethernet.
  • Deploy a wide range of workload and budget tailored DDR4 memory using the vast array of configurations available within a pool of 24 DIMM slots.
  • Architect workload optimized server storage with choices ranging from diskless to 4 drive configurations, 1.8” or 2.5” form factors, SAS/SATA/SSD HDDs and RAID to pass-through controller options.

Scale easily and efficiently

  • Accelerate time to production with automated deployment and update options with iDRAC8 custom BIOS and firmware settings or complete host configurations for entire chassis’ of blade servers.
  • Improve the productivity of your or third-party IT by using expedited “at-the-chassis” server management functions with USB key configuration and deployment or with a direct connect iDRAC GUI interface to a local device.
  • Conserve overall power consumption and utility costs by deploying memory-dense servers with DDR4 memory pools that utilize 30% lower power when active and up to 50% less power at standby.

Concentrate workload capacity

  • Drive dense compute performance across a wide range of workloads with 15% more processing cores per U and 15% greater memory bandwidth.
  • Optimize application performance and disk utilization with workload profiling, twice as many RAID options, and enhanced in-server Flash.
  • Unleash the capacity of your blade infrastructure to process Workload data with 100% more HDDs and 100% more local SAS throughput per server.
