Dell PowerEdge M630 Server Review

Does your data center process a large amount of information? Are you in need of a solution that is powerful and effective? The Dell M630 Blade Server is the choice for you. It is designed to be ultra-efficient, with a large amount of DDRM memory and an easy to manage platform. Below are features of the PowerEdge M630 server that make it your ultimate data center solution.

Greater Processing Power

The Dell M630 Blade Server stocks the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 which is designed to increase the performance of your virtual windows. The larger amount of cores and 15% greater memory bandwidth allow you to achieve higher performing virtual machines.

Improved Peak Performance

The Dell M630 is your ideal solution for high-performance computing (HPC). With a memory capacity of 24 DDR4 DIMM slots, and with up to four 1. Inch SSD drives, the advanced memory capabilities of the server and high- bandwidth makes it ideal for HPC capabilities.

Tailor Your Server to your Workloads

You can now toggle with the storage inside the server with drive options from two and a half inch HDDs to express flash PCle SSDs (up to four of them). Modifying server storage to match your needs allows you to tailor your servers to your workloads for both present and future needs.

Dell select network adapters, contained in the M630 server, allow for network flexibility by being offered a choice between fabric, speed and vendor (through the modular integrated NICs). You can, therefore, enable quick access to the storage facilities of your server or cloud platform while accurately addressing and allocating workload bandwidth requirements.

Easier Server Lifecycle Management

It is now even easier for you to manage your servers due to the newly automated and intelligent Dell OpenManage Systems. The automation process simplifies IT operations while making the dell servers more effective and reliable to use.

The Dell m630 is also equipped with the remote access controller (integrated Dell Remote Access controller- iDRAC), which allows IT administrators to manage dell servers in physical, virtual and remote environments. This makes sever management more automated and efficient.

The Chassis Management Controller (CMC) from the previous model (Dell M620) has also been incorporated into the M630 server. In addition to providing optimum power and cooling efficiency, the CMC tool monitors multiple chassis at the same time, while managing the converge infrastructure in each chassis

Dell OpenManage

Another feature carried over and improved from the M620Blade Server is the Dell OpenManage systems management portfolio. Through Dell OpenManage, you can integrate with third-party systems management solutions (such as Microsoft, VMWare and BMC) all while maintaining a single point of control.

The all-new OpenManage mobile provides you with enterprise level monitoring and control of both Dell and third-party systems management solutions all on your smartphone. OpenManage provides a host of other specialized control options such as automated OS deployment, configuration replication mechanisms and compatibility with set system configurations.

In conclusion, the Dell M630 is the perfect solution for your heavy data center requirements due to its advanced memory capability, supreme performance via the Intel processor and an easy to use interface.

The line between standard office PCs and workstations has blurred greatly since the turn of the millennium. However, that line is still there to some extent, and while commodity PCs can provide all of the performance most office employees need, professionals in the technical, scientific and financial industries need much more. Fortunately, Sun, Dell and HP produce a range of powerful computers designed with demanding applications in mind. And just like when purchasing a PC or server, a buyer can save a lot of money by going with a refurbished model.

What businesses should consider workstations for their operations?

Commodity PCs, like those found in offices around the world, are not intended to be used in memory or graphic intensive operations. They tend to be designed with budget processors and may even be equipped with integrated graphics instead of a dedicated graphics card. In other words, performing anything more than basic office tasks will bring the computer to a halt and possibly result in instability.

Obviously, not all industries need the best hardware for their operations, but professionals that deal with a lot of data or graphics will require the extra performance. With their greater capacity in running simulations, handling huge data loads and rendering advanced graphics, they are ideal for scientists, engineers, financial experts and designers.

The difference between the high performance machines and standard PCs is all about the components they are built with. With top tier processors, additional RAM and one or more high end graphics cards, workstations can go much further than standard computers.

What are some popular models that companies can get refurbished?

Sun and HP both have a number of models to choose from, and though Sun no longer produces new models, its Ultra 25 and Ultra 45 are still in use in critical applications, including government and defense. Both run on the brand’s highly respected SPARC chipset and are prized for their performance and excellent reliability. Both are configured with up to 16 GB of RAM and use the brand’s Solaris OS. They can handle four SATA or SAS drives, with up to a TB of storage.

HP has released a number of workstations in recent years, so it can offer even more impressive performance with its products. They are built with the E5 line of Xeon processors and offer 16 DIMM slots for up to 512 GB of RAM. They can also be upgraded to NVIDIA’s respected Quadro line of video cards, which are ideal for extremely graphics-intensive applications, like 3D design programs. Among the most popular HP models are the Z600, Z620, Z800 and Z820.

Dell also offers a number of respected models in its Precision line, including the T7610, a tower form factor, and the R7910, a rack form factor. Both can accommodate several graphics cards and are built with Intel’s line of Xeon processors.

When a garden variety PC just won’t cut it, business owners should consider workstations for their professionals. The performance boost will be a welcome sight for employees, and will result in immediate productivity benefits.
