Shared Infrastructure: Blades

Intel Xeon
Manage easier

Dell PowerEdge blade servers: performance, efficiency, versatility

Compute more in less space, with less energy. Blade servers can be key elements in reducing ever-growing power costs, and for implementing environmentally conscious IT initiatives.

And because they’re an integral component of shared infrastructure, they have server- and chassis-based redundancies that make them highly reliable. PowerEdge blades benefit from numerous fans and power supplies, failsafe hypervisors, and fault resilient memory — as well as redundant embedded management, hot swappable and fault tolerant drive options, and compatibility with up to three redundant (and converged) IO switching networks.

They also help you:

Accelerate workloads
PowerEdge blade servers are designed with carefully balanced memory, IO and internal storage options to optimize workload performance. Next-generation PowerEdge blade servers help you enhance virtualization environments, accelerate applications and step up high-performance computing capabilities. With dense designs, flexible internal Flash storage options—including Fluid Cache for SAN — and the latest Intel processors, we help you get more done in less time.

Manage efficiently
PowerEdge blade servers give you the benefit of our innovative agent-free management based on the intelligence of our powerful iDRAC (integrated Dell remote access controller) —with Lifecycle Controller — embedded right into each server. Our systems management capabilities help you more easily deploy, monitor, manage and maintain servers across their entire life cycles with much greater automation and ease-of-use.

And our next generation blade servers make systems management easier than ever before with features like:
  • Zero touch deployment that automatically retrieves predefined configuration settings and applies them to bare-metal servers
  • iDRAC Direct for fast, local server deployments
  • OpenManage Mobile for round-the-clock remote access from your smart device
Scale flexibly
PowerEdge blade servers empower you to deploy multiple generations or processor families within the same density, power, and cooling infrastructure. And their wide array of performance and configuration options give you the flexibility to choose the servers that are optimized for your specific IT operation and applications. Our scalable designs grow with the needs of your business, and give you the performance, efficiency and versatility that today’s future-ready data centers demand.
