Add Value To Your Business
Dell aims to add value to your business by including the features you need for your unique IT environment. Our goal is to deliver value through tailored solutions based on industry standards, as well as purposeful, innovative design.

Purposeful Design

The PowerEdge R510 follows the 11th Generation PowerEdge portfolio behavioral specifications and features the same system design commonality and reliability true to the entire portfolio. All 11th Generation servers are built with user ease in mind.

  • We put all external ports, power supplies and LED lights in the same location for familiar user experience, as well as, easy installation and deployment.
  • In addition, the R510 is also available with different chassis options. Customers can choose from 4, 8 or 12 hard drive chassis or an 8 hard drive chassis. These different configurations allow you to choose the design and feature set that is most appropriate for your needs.
  • Robust, metal hard-drive carriers and organized cabling are designed to improve component access and airflow across the server.
  • The 4 hard drive chassis is more affordable, featuring LED diagnostic lights, a cabled power supply and cabled hard drives. The larger capacity 12 hard drive chassis offers hot-swappable hard drives and redundant power. The 8 hard drive chassis offers an interactive LCD display that aids in set-up, location and diagnosis of the server.
  • The purposeful design of the PowerEdge R510's purposeful design also provides quiet acoustics and an interactive LCD screen or LED light display (depending on chassis selected) positioned on the front of the server for ease of monitoring.
  • These different configurations allow you to choose the design and feature set that is most appropriate for your IT environment.

Energy Optimised Technology

Energy Optimized Technology
Included in the R510 are low-flow fans, designed to spin faster in accordance with server workload demands and help reduce unnecessary noise when possible.
Energy Optimised Technology
The logical layout of internal components aid air flow direction, helping to keep the server cool.
Power Management Features
The R510 also can be configured to include features such as power capping, power inventory and power budgeting to aid in the management of power within your environment.

Simplified Systems Management

The Lifecycle Controller is the engine for advanced embedded management that is delivered as part of the optional iDRAC Express or iDRAC Enterprise in the PowerEdge R510. The Lifecycle Controller helps to deliver faster server deployment and update capabilities from a bare-metal pre-operating system (OS) environment.

Unified Server Configurator (USC) Interface
  • The Lifecycle Controller is a chip that is integrated on the server. It helps to simplify administrator tasks by performing 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.
Open Manage Portfolio
  • Also part of Dell's systems management portfolio is the Dell Management Console, part of Open Manage™ , which is included with every Dell server and provides IT managers with a single console view of their entire IT infrastructure.
With Dell Compellent™ , Dell EqualLogic™ , Dell PowerVault™ , and Dell/EMC, we have created a comprehensive and innovative portfolio of storage products, all of which are easy to deploy, manage and grow. Whether you use network attached storage (NAS), direct attached storage (DAS), Internet SCSI (iSCSI) or Fibre Channel (FC), Dell has a product that can meet your business needs and reduce the cost and complexity of storage.

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.
