Customizable with optional advanced systems management capabilities including remote management, a short 20.5 inch chassis, redundancy, if you need it, and cost effective RAID options, the T310 is the ideal, robust and reliable 1-socket tower server.
Energy Smart technologies are at the core system level on the PowerEdge™ T310. These energy-optimized technologies are designed to increase energy efficiency within the server, while continuing to deliver the performance your business requires.
Built with lower wattage power supplies than its predecessor, the PowerEdge T310 offers highly efficient, cabled or redundant power supply options. Also included in the T310 are low-flow fans, designed to spin faster in accordance with server workload demands and help reduce unnecessary noise when possible. In addition, the logical component layout aids in airflow direction, helping to keep the server cool. The T310 also includes Energy Smart power management features such as power capping, power inventory and power budgeting to best manage power in your specific environment.
With a single access point via the Unified Server Configurator (USC) interface, the USC tool provides a one stop shop to enable efficient operating system deployment with built-in driver installations, firmware updates, hardware configuration and diagnosing issues with the system.
Servers selected with hot pluggable hard drives will also get the benefit of an interactive LCD which can be accessed remotely via optional iDRAC Express or iDRAC Enterprise for system alerts, power usage as well as some boot-up options.
Also part of Dell’s OpenManage portfolio is the Dell™ Management Console, which ships free with every Dell server and provides IT administrators with a consolidated view of their IT infrastructure.

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.
