Optimized for Virtual EnvironmentsThe Dell PowerEdge M905 Blade Server is a performance powerhouse in virtual environments featuring:
- The newest generation of six-Core AMD Opteron™ Processors
- AMD Virtualization™ (AMD-V) technology that serves as the foundation for driving near-native application performance in virtualized environments
- An internal Secure Digital (SD) card for embedded hypervisors, designed to maximize virtualization performance
- High memory capacity and truly redundant throughput capacities
Only Dell M-Series provides complete, snap-in FlexIO scalability down to the switch interconnects. FlexIO technology is the foundation of the M1000e I/O subsystem and delivers the flexibility to design the solution to meet your requirements today, and the scalability to add or change options as warranted by your data center or future technologies in the future.
The M-Series enclosure supports a broad set of modular Ethernet blade switches including PowerConnect and Cisco Catalyst.
Dell's fully-modular PowerConnect switches provide great flexibility with choices in models from 1Gb to 10GbE speeds, flexible modular uplinks of varying media types, and many other valuable features. The PowerConnect portfolio, including the M6220 and M8024, offers a selection of switches for a variety of needs.
Spanning entry-level GbE to GbE with stacking and 10GbE uplinks – Cisco models include the Catalyst 3032, 3130G, and 3130X. The 3130 switches feature Cisco's Virtual Blade Switch functionality, enabling customers to interconnect up to 9 switches to create a single logical switch, thereby simplifying the manageability of their data center.
