The Dell PowerEdge™ M605 blade server, featuring the latest six-core AMD Opteron processors, removes complexity to help your servers run better, use space smarter and cost less overtime. Dell PowerEdge blades address data center server sprawl and complexity by delivering one of the most energy-efficient, flexible and manageable blade servers on the market.
Dell’s most energy-efficient blade solution, the PowerEdge M605 offers outstanding virtualization performance in a two-socket blade server combined with factory-integrated virtualization capabilities. Dell continues to simplify virtualization by streamlining virtualization deployment and providing ease of use in virtual infrastructures. By factory-integrating VMware® ESXi 3.5, customers receive VMware capabilities and migration of virtual machines within a few clicks of a mouse.
Our virtualization-ready server configurations provide an easy path to virtualization through factory-integrated hypervisors and recommended hardware configurations that support an ideal virtual infrastructure.
Designed for energy efficiency and density, blade servers address the growing power and space constraints of your data center. The M605 blade server is one of the most energy efficient blade products on the market, and has a 60% greater density than traditional 1U servers. Energy efficiency and density that can’t be beat.
Power-saving innovations are built into all AMD Opteron™ processors, from the ultra low-power AMD Opteron™ EE processors to the highest performing processors in the product family, the AMD Opteron™ SE processors.
With blade servers expanding your data center has never been easier. Once you have installed a blade enclosure, adding another server is as simple as sliding in a new blade and powering it up. Coupled with the Altiris® Deployment Solution for Dell servers and Dell Management Console, Dell blades are one of the easiest to deploy and manage in the industry.
The M605 blade server is paired with the M1000e modular blade enclosure for an optimized blade solution. The M1000e is designed from the ground up to combat IT complexity and delivers one of the most energy-efficient, flexible and manageable blade server products in the industry. Designed to support future generations of Dell blade servers and technologies, your M1000e investment is protected for the future.

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.
