Powerful, Scalable and Compact

Powerful, Scalable and Compact

  • The PowerEdge™ M910 was designed to meet the needs of nearly any IT environment. Built with Intel® Xeon® processors and advanced systems management capabilities, the M910 is ideal for the demanding applications at the core of most data centers.
  • Dell™ FlexMem Bridge technology allows the M910 to seamlessly scale from 4GB to 1TB of DDR3 RAM in either two-socket or four-socket configurations. This patent-pending technology allows Dell to deliver a unique platform that can grow as your needs dictate.
  • By delivering these capabilities in a blade server, Dell allows your organization to add significant performance in an exceptionally energy-efficient and easily managed form factor. With 8 four-socket servers per 10U of rack space, the M910 offers more than three times the density of traditional 4U rack-optimized four-socket servers. 

Focused on Quality and Reliability

Focused on Quality & Reliability
The PowerEdge™ M910 utilizes the redundant power, cooling and networking infrastructure provided by the Dell M1000e blade enclosure. The PowerEdge M910 itself incorporates additional features designed for maximum protection against potential downtime, such as the ability to support three fully redundant fabrics per blade and the inclusion of a dual-media redundant embedded hypervisor.
Focused on Quality & Reliability
The PowerEdge M910 also utilizes Intel Xeon processors that are designed to automatically monitor, report and recover from hardware errors to maintain data integrity and keep mission-critical services online.
Focused on Quality & Reliability
Like all Dell PowerEdge servers, the M910 is manufactured with our one-touch factory-build process. This process is designed to ensure that just one person is responsible for the entire server build, resulting in greater quality control. In addition, every fully configured Dell server is tested (and retested) before it leaves the factory to ensure maximum reliability.
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.
  • TheDell Management Console, powered by Altiris from Symantec, delivers a single view and a common data source into the entire infrastructure. Dell Management Console is built on the Symantec™ Management Platform (formerly Altiris® Notification Server), an easily extensible, modular foundation that can provide basic hardware management or more advanced functions such as asset and security management. Dell Management Console helps reduce manual processes so less time and money can be spent keeping the lights on and more time can be spent on strategic uses of technology.
  • Lifecycle Controller is the engine for advanced systems management integrated on the server. Lifecycle Controller is designed to simplify 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 can eliminate 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.

Flexibility Redefined

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 that has the flexibility you need to design today’s solution and the scalability you require to add or change data center options to meet future demands.


Ethernet

Ethernet

The M-Series enclosure supports a broad set of modular gigabit Ethernet (GbE), 10GbE and Enhanced Ethernet blade switches.

Dell's fully modular Ethernet switches provide great flexibility, with choices of 1Gb to 10Gb speeds, flexible modular uplinks of varying media types, and many other valuable features. This portfolio offers a selection of switches that can meet even the most extreme networking demands.


Fibre Channel

Brocade 16Gb Fibre Channel Switches provide powerful connectivity to Fibre Channel SANs, such as those offered by Dell/EMC. The M6505 includes 16 internal and 8 external fabric port options as well as a performance pack for enhanced features and management.

For heterogeneous integration into any Fibre Channel network, the Brocade M5424 8Gb Fibre Channel switch can even be enabled in Access Gateway mode. Based on N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) functionality, Access Gateway mode delivers the cable aggregation benefits and cost savings offered by Dell’s M-Series blade solutions without separate management or configuration requirements.

Fibre Channel

poweredge M1000e - InfiniBand

InfiniBand

For high-performance computing (HPC) or other environments requiring the highest bandwidth and lowest latency available, the M-Series offers InfiniBand™ switches and adapter cards. Dell offers chassis-integrated fourteen data rate (FDR) InfiniBand switches from Mellanox, with speeds of up to 56Gbps. Each switch features 16 internal ports and 8 external ports to ensure the availability and redundancy needed for the most demanding applications.
