Dell PowerEdge R710: Must Know Facts
- The R710 is a 2U rackmount server
- The Dell PowerEdge R710 can run 2 CPUs
- It can be used in business applications like cloud hosting
- The Dell R710 can run Linux as well as Windows Server
High Performance and Availability to Maximize Uptime
The Dell R710 server supports up to two of the latest Quad-Core Intel Xeon processors. These latest processors provide increased performance and performance/watt2 . With the new capability to support six 3.5” SAS drives, the R710 also provides enough room to stripe data onto multiple drives for high performance in demanding environments. Additionally, exceptional memory throughput and capacity is achieved with as much as 144GB of fully-buffered DIMM memory. The server includes PCI Express technology for excellent I/O throughput, and TCP/IP Offload Engine (TOE) which offloads the TCP/IP processing to a dedicated processor on the embedded NIC‘s for CPU performance gains. And with features like hot plug power supplies/fans, RAID configurations with battery backed cache, and an internal tape drive option for local data backup, the Dell R710 helps ensure your data is protected and accessible.
Manageability for Reduced Complexity
The Dell R710 server is equipped with a Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) that includes a complete set of tools that monitors server hardware, alerts you when server faults occur and enables basic remote operations. For environments with servers located in secure data centers or in sites with no IT staff, Dell offers an optional feature for Dell R710 servers, the Dell Remote Access Controller (DRAC). Operated through a Web-based graphic user interface, DRAC can enable remote access, monitoring, troubleshooting, repair and upgrades independent of the operating system status. Common software with the same family of Dell R710 generation servers further helps simplify management. Plus, the Dell Behavioral Specification means one familiar platform for less complex deployment, management and serviceability as well as lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) over multiple generations of PowerEdge servers.
