PowerEdge M710 Blade Server
Designed for Power Efficiency

Designed for Power Efficiency

The Dell™ PowerEdge™ M1000e blade enclosure with the M710 delivers outstanding performance per watt. The M1000e enclosure takes advantage of thermal design efficiencies, such as ultra-efficient power supplies, dynamic power efficient fans and optimised airflow design that can efficiently cool the chassis to enable exceptional performance in a lower power envelope.

The Intel® Xeon® processor series is designed to adapt in real time to your software enabling multiple tasks to be done simultaneously, while boosting performance with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology as business usage demands it most. It proactively puts your server into lower power states using Intel® Intelligent Power Technology during periods of low demand, helping reduce operating costs

The dynamic power management technology allows you to set high/low power thresholds to enable efficient energy management.
Increased Memory Capacity and I/O for High Performance Applications

Increased Memory Capacity and I/O for High Performance Applications

Expanding to a full-height form factor enabled Dell to significantly increase the memory capacity of the M710 with 18 DIMM slots and up to 144GB of total RAM - a critical component to virtualisation and database performance.

New DDR3 memory offers higher bandwidth and lower power consumption than previous FBD or DDR2 RAM technologies. The numerous memory slots allow you to use smaller, less expensive DIMMs to meet computing needs.
Virtualisation Performance

Virtualisation Performance

The Dell PowerEdge M710 allows for quick virtualisation deployment with embedded hypervisors from world-class vendors via a SD card or internal USB. Intel® VT FlexMigration integrates multiple generations of Intel® Xeon® processor-based servers, improving flexibility and investment protection. The M710’s enhanced memory capacity is crucial for virtualisation performance and value memory configurations help balance cost.
Simplified Systems Management

Simplified Systems Management

The next generation Dell OpenManage™ suite offers advanced operations and standards-based commands designed to integrate with existing systems for effective control.
 
The new Dell Management Console delivers a single view and a common data source into the entire infrastructure. Dell Management Console is built on Symantec™ Management Platform (formerly Altiris® ’ Notification Server platform), an easily extensible, modular foundation that can provide basic hardware management to 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 can be redirected to more strategic uses of technology.

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 Dell Unified Server Configurator delivers a single access point for secure, efficient and user-friendly infrastructure management. Embedded and integrated into the system, it provides quick and consistent access, excellent flexibility and advanced capabilities. With built-in driver installations, firmware updates, hardware configuration and diagnostics, the USC tool is a one-stop shop for operating system deployment.
