Enhance performance, boost convergence


Accelerate application performance, convergence and time-to-value for data center or office workloads with manageable, high-density blades.

PowerEdge M830 Blade Server - Enhance IT workload performance

Enhance IT workload performance

Up to 88 Intel® processor cores and 48 DIMMS of DDR4 memory offer tremendous computational horsepower for heavy-use workloads in exceptionally demanding database, technical computing and virtualized environments.

  • Power through compute-intensive workloads with 83 percent more processing cores per socket than previous-generation Intel processors.
  • Get results faster from memory-intensive workloads with DDR4 DIMMs offering 28 percent higher MT/s than DDR3.
  • Feed your IO-intensive workloads with up to 240Mbits of throughput using 24 x 10GbE ports connected to three redundant, low-latency fabrics.
  • Accelerate data-intensive workloads using 12 in-chassis SSDs, with expansion options of up to 25 2.5” HDDs or 72TBs with 3.5” HDDs.
PowerEdge M830 Blade Server - Expedite time to value

Expedite time to value

Reduce configuration, maintenance, imaging and deployment time and costs by standardizing on a single 4-socket E5-4600v4 platform in existing VRTX or M1000e chassis for remote offices and data centers.

  • Protect software-defined compute, storage and networking with Dell Fault Resilient Memory and redundant embedded hypervisor.
  • Automate operations with agent-free, 1-to-many systems management tools that pre-provision LAN and SAN resources and assist with BIOS, firmware and driver updates.
  • Enable zero-touch discovery and configuration with template-based provisioning.

Converge IT resources

Save expenses with physical and software-defined consolidation that optimizes application delivery using flexibly tailored IT. Meet business objectives by powering critical workloads with converged solutions designed specifically for data center and small-office environments:

  • Reduce infrastructure sprawl by converging management modules, switches, power and network cabling, disk enclosures, and feature-dense 4S servers into a single chassis.
  • Save floor space, power and cooling costs, and licensing fees by using core-dense M830s to create a software-defined environment from legacy infrastructure.
  • Utilize vast local SSD and memory resources to develop software-defined standalone edge networking and DAS storage with VMware VSAN and Virtual Distributed Switch technologies
