Improve Effectiveness, Operate Efficiently and Recover Valuable TimeWith the feature-rich Chassis Management Controller and flexible PCIe options, you can run business applications with efficient resources, consolidate your data center, ease data management and cut system maintenance times.
Unparalleled PowerEdge flexibilityThe PowerEdge M610x with PCIe expansion module allows you to creatively incorporate a vast array of PCIe-based products into blade deployments, with enough power and cooling to efficiently deploy even the most feature-rich expansion card-based solutions.
- PCIe expansion module includes two full-length x16 PCIe Gen2 slots and two standard blade IO mezzanine cards.
- Supplemental power connectors enable maximum wattage for one 300W dual-slot card or two 250W single-slot cards.
- PCIe slots support everything from H-series external RAID controllers to general-purpose computing-on-graphics processing units (GPGPU).
Uncompromised PerformanceThe PowerEdge™ M610x is an energy-efficient, optimized full-height two-socket server for virtualization and database applications. Additional manageability features make it easy to use, manage and deploy.
- Ideal PCIe host server that features the reliability of two 2.5" Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) or SSD hot-swappable hard drives and the IO throughput of a dual-port embedded gigabit NIC and two additional network daughter cards.
- Intel® Xeon® Processor 5600 Series plus up to 192GBs of DDR3 memory offer high performance with low power consumption for a variety of dense-environment workloads.
- Efficiently powered and modularly cooled PCIe expansion module delivers up to 8GB/s of application throughput.
Simplified System ManagementThe Chassis Management Controller (CMC) and embedded-system management features on the PowerEdge M610x enable you to spend more time on your business and less on maintaining your IT.
- Automated discovery — CMC automates configuration of new hardware through a one-to-many relationship and enables pre-provisioning of local area network/storage area network (LAN/SAN) resources.
- One-to-many deploy and update — CMC and Virtual Media File Share enables customers to quickly and simply deploy OS images and updates to one or many blades in a chassis without agents, additional software or using Pre-Boot eXecution Environment (PXE).
- Proactive management — CMC provides immediate access to system status, issues and alerts through a single, easy-to-use interface plus one-click access to key functions to help quickly resolve any issues.
Only Dell M-Series provides complete, snap-in FlexIO scalability down to the switch interconnects. FlexIO technology is the foundation of the M1000e I/O subsystem and delivers the flexibility to design the solution to meet your requirements today, and the scalability to add or change options as warranted by your data center or future technologies in the future.
The M-Series enclosure supports a broad set of modular Ethernet blade switches including PowerConnect and Cisco Catalyst.
Dell's fully-modular PowerConnect switches provide great flexibility with choices in models from 1Gb to 10GbE speeds, flexible modular uplinks of varying media types, and many other valuable features. The PowerConnect portfolio, including the M6220 and M8024, offers a selection of switches for a variety of needs.
Spanning entry-level GbE to GbE with stacking and 10GbE uplinks — Cisco models include the Catalyst 3032, 3130G and 3130X. The 3130 switches feature Cisco's Virtual Blade Switch functionality, enabling customers to interconnect up to 9 switches to create a single logical switch, thereby simplifying the manageability of their data center.
Brocade 4Gb and 8Gb Fibre Channel Switches provide powerful connectivity to fibre channel SANs, such as those offered by Dell/EMC. Models currently available include the M4424 and M5424.
For heterogeneous integration into any Fibre Channel network, these Brocade FC Switches can be configured as in Access Gateway mode. Based on NPIV functionality, Access Gateway mode delivers the cable aggregation benefits and cost savings offered by Dell’s M-Series blade solution.
For high-performance computing (HPC) or other environments requiring the highest bandwidth and lowest latency available, the M-Series offers two levels of InfiniBand switches. The industry’s first chassis-integrated Quad Data Rate IB switch is available in the Mellanox M3601Q, with speeds of up to 40Gbps. For dual data rate (DDR) InfiniBand infrastructures, the M-Series can be equipped with Cisco M7000E or Mellanox M2401G switches. Each switch features 16 ports in and 8 ports out to ensure the availability and redundancy needed for the most demanding applications.
