Optimizing Application Performance

Delivering best-in-class performance, choice and reliability on AMD Opteron™, Intel® Xeon® and Intel® Itanium® processors for Windows, Linux, Solaris, OpenVMS, or HP-UX based servers; the HPE portfolio of server blades supports a variety of application requirements for scale-out architectures. Hewlett Packard Enterprise offers one-, two-, four- and eight -processor server blades, with the widest range of performance, and form factors.

The Dell M630 is an ultra-efficient blade server with up to 44 cores of Intel processing power and 24 DIMMs of DDR4 memory in a dense, easy-to-manage platform ideal for data center workloads.

the M630 offers exceptional scalability in environments ranging from IT as a service (XaaS) providers and private clouds to remote and branch offices.

The M630 provides flexibility to optimize in-server storage and I/O performance, allowing you to tailor your servers to your workloads today and tomorrow. With drive options from 2 x 2.5″ HDDs or Express Flash PCIe SSDs to up to 4 x 1.8″ SSDs, it’s easy to configure in-server storage to meet your needs.

Automation of Core Functions

On the M630 servers, the Dell OpenManage platform makes it possible for this line of servers to automate routine and everyday tasks. It combines intelligent processing, agent-free management, and sync capabilities to offer flexible control from multiple devices. In addition, the server comes equipped with the new OpenManage Enterprise control that offers customized reporting.

The PowerEdge M640 also comes equipped with the Dell OpenManage portfolio. On this server, the automation capabilities of OpenManage end up freeing plenty of space and time for other more tasking projects on the server.

Data Security

The Dell PowerEdge servers are built with security at the core of their life cycle. The Dell M640 is able to leverage key security features that enhance protection and the delivery of accurate data to your customers. These features include an integrated secure boot along with cryptographically singed firmware packages, a server lock-down feature that prevents unauthorized or malicious changes, and a secure component supply chain that provides data protection from the factory to the data center.

Because these security standards are built into every Dell PowerEdge server, the M640 contains much the same security features as the M630. However, with the M640 being a workload powerhouse, the data safety via secure boot and the prevention of unauthorized access are even more critical. The server is also equipped with the Quick Sync 2 feature for safe and reliable wireless management of data. Combined with advanced memory capabilities, the M640 can handle taxing workloads without the user worrying about data security.
