Versatile 4-socket performance for remote office and data center workloads

Enhance performance, boost convergence

Designed to boost application performance, consolidation and time-to-value in data center or remote office applications by delivering vast compute, memory and storage resources that are easy to deploy and manage. First full-height PowerEdge M-series server to focus up to 240Gb of throughput, 72 cores of processing power, 12 disk drives, and 3TBs memory on a single converged platform.

Enhance IT workload performance

Up to 72 IntelĀ® processor cores and 48 DIMMS of DDR4 memory offer tremendous computational horsepower for heavy-use workloads in exceptionally demanding database, technical computing and virtualized environments.

  • Power through compute-intensive workloads with 50% more processing cores per socket over previous-generation processors.
  • Get results faster from memory-intensive workloads with DDR4 DIMMs offering 15% higher MT/s than DDR3.
  • Feed your I/O-intensive workloads with up to 240Mbits of throughput using 24 x 10GbE ports connected to three redundant, low-latency fabrics.
  • Accelerate data-intensive workloads using 12 in-chassis SSDs, with expansion options of up to 25 HDDs (37TB).

Expedite time to value

Reduce configuration, maintenance, imaging and deployment time and costs by standardizing on a single 4-socket E5-4600 v3 platform in existing VRTX or M1000e chassis for remote offices and data centers.

  • Protect software-defined compute, storage and networking with Fault Resilient Memory and redundant embedded hypervisor.
  • Automate operations with agent-free, one-to-many systems management tools that preprovision LAN and SAN resources and assist with BIOS, firmware and driver updates.
  • Enable zero-touch discovery and configuration with template-based provisioning.

Converge IT resources

Save expenses with physical and software-defined consolidation that optimizes application delivery using flexibly tailored IT. Meet business objectives by powering critical workloads with modular solutions designed specifically for data center and small-office environments:

  • Reduce infrastructure sprawl by converging management modules, switches, power and network cabling, disk enclosures, and feature-dense 4S servers into a single chassis.
  • Save floor space, power and cooling costs, and licensing fees by using core-dense M830s to create a software-defined environment from legacy infrastructure.
  • Utilize vast local SSD and memory resources to develop software-defined standalone edge networking and DAS storage with VMware VSAN and Virtual Distributed Switch technologies
