Dell’s servers offer world class system and image commonality and customer inspired usability. The Dell™ PowerEdge™ R610 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 enables a simple and straight forward installation and a simplified redeployment experience in the future.
In addition, Dell’s latest PowerEdge servers provide a graphical and interactive LCD for system health monitoring, alerting and control of basic management configuration right in the front of the server. Customers have an AC power meter and ambient temperature thermometer built into the server which they can monitor on this display without any software tools.
Dell’s newest servers feature energy-tuned technologies designed to reduce power consumption while increasing performance and capacity. Enhancements include efficient power supply units right-sized for system requirements, effective system-level design efficiency, policy-driven power and thermal management, and highly efficient standards-based Energy Smart components. Dell's advanced thermal control is designed to deliver optimal performance at minimum system and fan power consumption resulting in our quietest mainstream 1U servers to date. These elements drive efficiency as a design standard while delivering the performance businesses require.
The next generation Dell OpenManage™ suite offers enhanced operations and standards-based commands designed to integrate with existing systems for effective control.
Lifecycle Controller is the engine for advanced systems management integrated on the server. Lifecycle Controller simplifies 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 eliminates the need to use and maintain multiple pieces of disparate CD/DVD media.
The new Dell Management Console (DMC), 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 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.
