PowerEdge R710 Rack Server Product Details
Dell PowerEdge R710 rack server purposeful, customer-inspired design

Purposeful, Customer-Inspired Design

The next generation Dell™ PowerEdge™ R710 is customer inspired. By listening and focusing on the details, we have delivered on your inspiration with simplicity of operation and innovative features.

The PowerEdge R710 takes advantage of Dell’s system commonality; when IT managers learn one system, they have learned the logic required to manage Dell’s next generation servers. The logical layout of components and power supply placement delivers a simple, straight forward installation and simplified redeployment in the future.

The new design features robust industrial materials including improved chassis, rails, cable management arms, hard drive carriers and latches. With the new PowerEdge R710 you get incredible system management from the aisle with enhanced multi-layer LCD and KVM access.
Increased Virtualization Performance

Increased Virtualization Performance

The PowerEdge R710 is designed with 125% more memory capacity and more integrated I/O . This increased capacity is crucial for virtualization performance and scalability. The R710 allows for quick virtualization deployment with embedded hypervisors from leading vendors via an SD card or internal USB.

Intel® VT FlexMigration integrates multiple generations of Intel® Xeon® processor-based servers, improving flexibility and investment protection.

New DDR3 memory offers higher bandwidth and lower power consumption than previous FBD or DDR2 technologies. Increased memory slots allows you to use smaller, less expensive DIMMs to meet computing needs and balance cost.
Simplified Systems Management

Simplified Systems Management

The next generation Dell OpenManage™ suite offers enhanced 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 or 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 more time can be spent on strategic uses of technology.

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.
Energy Efficient Design

Energy-Efficient Design

The PowerEdge™ R710 features Energy Smart™ technologies that are designed to reduce power consumption while increasing performance capacity. Energy efficient design features include efficient power supply units right-sized for system requirements, innovative system-level design efficiency, policy-driven power and thermal management, and highly efficient standards-based Energy Smart components. All these elements are designed to increase energy efficiency across our latest core data center servers while delivering the performance your business requires.

Tests by Dell engineers have shown that the processors in the comparable HP DL380 can run 17% hotter than the PowerEdge™ R710 due to lower airflow, far exceeding Intel® design specifications at any room temperature.

Embedded Management is designed to deliver zero-media “Instant On” integrated manageability through a single access point for infrastructure management functions that is secure, efficient and user-friendly for IT administrators. 

Integrated Management

Open, flexible, integrated — Manage your infrastructure, not your management consoles. With the introduction of Dell™ Management Console powered by Altiris® from Symantec™, Dell is doing for systems management what they did for computer hardware —  taking a complex, proprietary industry technology and transforming it by delivering a simple, streamlined, modular solution best adapted to your specific management needs.
 Microsoft SQL Server 2005

Dell Management Plug-in for VMware vCenter™

What if you could manage your physical infrastructure from your virtual console?
What if you could rapidly and consistently provision hardware and deploy virtual machines from within VMware vCenter?
What if you could reduce the number of steps needed to deploy virtual infrastructure?

With the Dell Management Plug-In for VMware vCenter installed in your VMware environment, you can:
• Get deep-level detail from Dell servers for inventory, monitoring and alerting — all from within vCenter
• Deploy BIOS and firmware updates to Dell servers from within vCenter
• Build hardware and hypervisor profiles and deploy any combination of the two on bare-metal Dell PowerEdge servers without a preboot execution environment (PXE)
• Automatically perform Dell-recommended vCenter actions based on Dell hardware alerts
• Access Dell hardware warranty information online

And, to give you even more power, we deliver our plug-in as a virtual appliance. That makes it easier to deploy and configure and offers integration directly into the vCenter console, providing more information inside of vCenter itself — unlike many other vendors who provide only "link-and-launch" capabilities to point to their own proprietary consoles.

The combination of the Dell Management Plug-In for VMware vCenter and the revolutionary embedded management features offered by Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller in Dell PowerEdge servers gives you an unmatched level of integration between vCenter and your server hardware.
