Chassis

  • Form Factor:
    10U modular enclosure holds up to sixteen half-height blade servers

    44.0cm(17.3”)H x 44.7cm(17.6”)W x 75.4cm(29.7”)D

    Weight: 
    Empty Chassis only – 98lbs (44.5kg)    
    Chassis w/ all rear modules (IOMs, PSUs, CMCs, KVM) - 176lbs (79.8kg)    
    Max Fully loaded w/ blades and rear modules - 394lbs (178.7kg)

    Cooling Fans:
    M1000e Chassis comes standard with 9 hot pluggable, redundant fan modules

    Based on Energy Smart Technologies, M1000e fans are a breakthrough in power and cooling efficiency.
    The fans deliver low power consumption, but also use next generation “low flow” technology to ensure the
    lowest possible amount of fresh air is consumed to cool the enclosure

    Input Devices:
    Front Control Panel with interactive Graphical LCD

    Supports initial configuration wizard
    Local server blade, enclosure, and module information and troubleshooting

    Two USB Keyboard/Mouse connections and one Video connection (requires the optional Avocent iKVM switch
    to enable these ports) for local front “crash cart” console connections that can be switched between blades

Power

  • Up to six 3000W high-efficiency power supplies, six 2700W high-efficiency power supplies or up to six -48V DC 2700W power supplies.

    Based on Dell’s Energy Smart technologies, the M1000e power supplies deliver greater levels of efficiency, even at low levels of utilization. Supported power supply configurations include:

    3+3 and 2+2 (grid redundancy)
    2+1, 3+1, 4+2, and 5+1 (power supply redundancy)
    2+0 and 3+0 (non-redundant mode)

    The M1000e chassis supports dynamic power supply engagement (DPSE) mode, which if enabled, puts lightly loaded power supplies into standby mode, driving up the utilization and the efficiency of the active supplies. Dell supports either 110–120V or 208–240V AC power supply input and supports a wide range of power distribution options. Dell recommends 208–240V AC for all production environments.

Storage

  • External Storage Options:
    For information about Dell external storage options, visit Dell.com/Storage.

Management

  • 1 (standard) or optional 2nd (redundant) Chassis Management Controller(s) (CMC) that provide:
    Single secure interface for inventory, configuration, monitoring, and alerting for the chassis and all components Multi-chassis management capability allows up to nine chassis and 288 servers to be managed from a single, embedded, agent-less interface

    Enables automated and embedded one-to-many blade BIOS and firmware updates, independent of the OS through iDRAC

    Allows one-to-many blade server BIOS capture and replication

    Real-Time Power/Thermal Monitoring and Management

    Real-Time System AC Power Consumption with resettable peak and minimum values

    System-level power limiting and slot-based power prioritization

    Manages Dynamic Power Engagement functionality that can help to lower overall system power consumption by ensuring power supplies run at their optimal efficiency points

    Manages fan speed control using Dell’s enhanced efficiency technologies to ensure fans are delivering optimal cooling while minimizing power consumption and airflow

    Secure Web (SSL) and Command Line (Telnet/SSH) interfaces

    Supports multiple levels of user roles and permissions, including integration into Microsoft® Active Directory® Services and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) services for authentication 2 x 10/100/1000Mb Ethernet ports + 1 serial port

    Provides single point of connection from management network to iDRAC on each of the blades and the management interfaces on the integrated I/O modules

    2nd Ethernet port supports daisy chaining of CMCs for improved cable management

    Optional Integrated Avocent® keyboard, video and mouse (iKVM) switch:
    Enables USB keyboard/mouse and video port on front control panel

    Dell OpenManage™ Systems Management
    Dell OpenManage Server Administrator—monitoring agents and 1:1 management utilities
