Dell PowerEdge R610
Strong IT Foundation
The Dell PowerEdge R610 is a key building block for today's data center. Designed for versatility and high performance, it provides many of the virtualization, system management, and energyefficiency features you need now and the scalability necessary to change as your business grows. This general purpose Intel(R) processor-based 2-socket 1U server is ideal for corporate data centers and remote sites that require a dense, highly available single- or dual-processor server at an excellent value.
The PowerEdge R610 follows the 11th generation PowerEdge portfolio specifications and features the same system design commonality and reliability true to the entire portfolio. All 11th generation servers are designed to make the experience easier. We put all external ports, power supplies, LCD screens, and LED lights in the same location for familiar experience as well as easy installation and deployment.
Robust, metal hard drive carriers and organized cabling are designed to help improve component access and airflow across the server. The PowerEdge R610 provides an interactive LCD screen or LED display positioned on the front of the server for ease of monitoring and troubleshooting condition of the server.
Featuring Intel(R) Xeon(R) processor-based architecture, embedded hypervisors, and expanded memory footprint and I/O, the Dell PowerEdge R610 delivers exceptional overall system performance and significant virtual machine-per-server capacity versus the previous generation. With optional factory-integrated virtualization capabilities, you get tailored solutions--built with the latest technologies from Dell and our trusted partners--which allow you to streamline deployment and simplify virtual infrastructures. Choose your hypervisor from market leaders such as VMware(R), Citrix(R), and Microsoft(R), and enable virtualization with a few mouse clicks.
Dell’s advanced thermal control helps optimize performance while minimizing system power consumption, ultimately driving energy efficiency across our latest core data center servers. These enhancements, over previous generations, include efficient power supply units right-sized for system requirements, improved system-level design efficiency, policy-driven power and thermal management, and highly efficient standards-based Energy Smart components. Dell’s advanced thermal control is designed to deliver optimal performance at minimum system and fan power consumption resulting in our quietest mainstream 1U servers to date.
Simplified Systems Management
With the optional advanced embedded systems management capabilities of Lifecycle Controller, Dell provides comprehensive enterprise class manageability already on the motherboard. Lifecycle Controller is delivered as part of the optional iDRAC Express or iDRAC Enterprise in the PowerEdge R610. The Lifecycle Controller helps to simplify administrator tasks by performing a comprehensive set of provisioning functions such as system deployment, system updates, hardware configuration and diagnostics from a single intuitive interface called Unified Server Configurator (USC) in a pre-OS environment. This helps eliminate the need to use and maintain multiple pieces of disparate CD/DVD media.
Also part of the Dell OpenManage(TM) portfolio is the Dell Management Console which is included with every Dell server and provides IT administrators with a consolidated console view of their IT infrastructure.
Dell Services can help reduce IT complexity, lower costs, and eliminate inefficiencies by making IT and business solutions work harder for you. The Dell Services team takes a holistic view of your needs and designs olutions for your environment and business objectives while leveraging proven delivery methods, local talent, and in-depth domain knowledge for the lowest TCO.

Customer Inspired Design
Dell's servers offer world class system and image commonality and customer inspired usability. The Dell(TM) PowerEdge(TM) R610 takes advantage of Dell's system commonality; When IT managers learn one system, they have learned the logic required to manage Dell's next generation servers. The logical layout of components and power supply placement enables a simple and straight forward installation and a simplified redeployment experience in the future.
In addition, Dell's latest PowerEdge servers provide a graphical and interactive LCD for system health monitoring, alerting and control of basic management configuration right in the front of the server. Customers have an AC power meter and ambient temperature thermometer built into the server which they can monitor on this display without any software tools.
Energy Tuned Technologies
Dell's newest servers feature energy-tuned technologies designed to reduce power consumption while increasing performance and capacity. Enhancements include efficient power supply units right-sized for system requirements, effective system-level design efficiency, policy-driven power and thermal management, and highly efficient standards-based Energy Smart components. Dell's advanced thermal control is designed to deliver optimal performance at minimum system and fan power consumption resulting in our quietest mainstream 1U servers to date. These elements drive efficiency as a design standard while delivering the performance businesses require.
Simplified Infrastructure Management
Simplified Systems Management
The next generation Dell OpenManage(TM) suite offers enhanced operations and standards-based commands designed to integrate with existing systems for effective control.
Lifecycle Controller is the engine for advanced systems management integrated on the server. Lifecycle Controller simplifies administrator tasks to perform a complete set of provisioning functions such as system deployment, system updates, hardware configuration and diagnostics from a single intuitive interface called Unified Server Configurator (USC) in a pre-OS environment. This eliminates the need to use and maintain multiple pieces of disparate CD/DVD media.
The new Dell Management Console (DMC), powered by Altiris from Symantec, delivers a single view and a common data source into the entire infrastructure. Dell Management Console is built on the Symantec(TM) Management Platform (formerly Altiris(R) Notification Server), an easily extensible, modular foundation that can provide basic hardware management or more advanced functions such as asset and security management. Dell Management Console helps reduce or eliminate manual processes -- so less time and money is spent keeping the lights on and more time can be spent on strategic uses of technology.
