Dell PowerEdge R710
Strong IT foundation
You want a data center built for organic growth and the ability to scale based on your company's changing requirements. You need complete solutions that let you focus your time and money on managing and growing your business. Dell responds with an expanding portfolio of enterprise servers, storage technologies, and services with a single goal: to help you simplify IT.
With Dell’s system commonality, once your IT managers learn one system, they understand how to manage next-generation Dell servers. Logical component layout and power supply placement provide a straightforward installation and redeployment experience. The PowerEdge R710 provides an interactive LCD for system health monitoring, alerting, and control of basic management as well as checking the AC power meter and ambient temperature thermometer included with each server.
Featuring embedded hypervisors, large memory capacity with 18 DIMM slots, and 4 integrated network connections, the Dell PowerEdge R710 delivers better overall system performance and greater virtual machine-per-server capacity. The latest Intel® Xeon® processor technology adapts to your software in real time, processing more tasks simultaneously. With optional factory-integrated virtualization capabilities, you get tailored solutions that allow you to streamline deployment and simplify virtual infrastructures. Choose your hypervisor from market leaders such as VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft, and enable virtualization with a few mouse clicks.
The PowerEdge R710 reduces power consumption while increasing performance capacity versus previous generation servers using Energy Smart technologies and standards-based components along with right-sized efficient power supply units, improved system-level design efficiency, and policy-driven power and thermal management. Dell’s advanced thermal control delivers optimal performance at minimal power consumption without compromising enterprise performance.
Simplified systems management
The Dell OpenManage™ 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.
Dell Management Console (DMC)
DMC, powered by Altiris™ from Symantec™, delivers a single view and a common data source into the entire infrastructure. DMC is an easily extensible, modular foundation that can provide basic hardware management or more advanced functions such as asset and security management. It 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.
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 solutions for your environment and business objectives while leveraging proven delivery methods, local talent, and in-depth domain knowledge for the lowest TCO.
