Virtualizare mai performantăPowerEdge™ R710 dispune de o capacitate de memorie cu 125 % mai mare şi de mai multe funcţii I/O integrate decât serverul PowerEdge™ 2950 III din generaţia anterioară. Capacitatea mărită este esenţială pentru performanţa şi scalabilitatea soluţiilor de scalabilitate. Serverul R710 permite implementarea rapidă a soluţiilor de virtualizare cu ajutorul hipervizoarelor încorporate de la producători de top, care utilizează un card SD (Secure Digital) sau un dispozitiv USB intern.
Intel® VT FlexMigration integrează mai multe generaţii de servere bazate pe procesoare Intel Xeon, îmbunătăţind flexibilitatea şi protecţia investiţiei.
Noua memorie DDR3 (Double Data Rate 3) oferă lăţime mai mare de bandă şi consum mai mic de energie decât tehnologiile FBD sau DDR2 (Double Data Rate) anterioare. Datorită numărului mai mare de sloturi de memorie, puteţi utiliza module DIMM (module de memorie duale în linie) pentru a face faţă cerinţelor de calcul şi pentru a echilibra costurile.
Administrare simplificată a sistemelorSuita Dell OpenManage™ de generaţie viitoare oferă operaţiuni îmbunătăţite şi comenzi bazate pe standarde, proiectate pentru a se integra cu sistemele existente, pentru un control eficient.
Soluţia Lifecycle Controller reprezintă motorul funcţiei de administrare avansată a sistemelor, integrate în server. Soluţia Lifecycle Controller simplifică sarcinile administratorilor prin efectuarea unui set complet de funcţii de alocare a resurselor, cum ar fi implementarea şi actualizarea sistemelor şi configurarea şi diagnosticarea componentelor hardware, dintr-o singură interfaţă intuitivă, numită Unified Server Configurator (USC), într-un mediu fără sistem de operare instalat. Acest lucru elimină necesitatea utilizării şi întreţinerii mai multor suporturi CD/DVD separate.
Noua Dell™ Management Console (DMC), bazată pe tehnologia Altiris de la Symantec, asigură o perspectivă unică asupra întregii infrastructuri şi o sursă de date comună pentru aceasta. Dell Management Console este bazată pe Symantec™ Management Platform (cunoscută anterior sub numele de Altiris® Notification Server), o bază modulară ce permite extinderea simplă şi care poate asigura administrarea de bază a componentelor hardware sau funcţii mai avansate, cum ar fi gestionarea activelor şi a securităţii.
Dell™ Management Console vă ajută să reduceţi sau să eliminaţi procesele manuale, ceea ce înseamnă reducerea duratei şi cheltuielilor necesare pentru desfăşurarea activităţii şi posibilitatea alocării unei durate mai mari pentru utilizarea strategică a tehnologiilor.
Dell™ Unified Server Configurator oferă un punct unic de acces pentru administrarea sigură, eficientă şi simplă a infrastructurii. Fiind încorporat şi integrat în sistem, acesta oferă:
- acces rapid şi uniform;
- flexibilitate excelentă;
- capacităţi avansate.
The PowerEdge™ R710 features Energy Smart™ technologies that are designed to reduce power consumption while increasing performance capacity. Energy efficient design features include efficient power supply units right-sized for system requirements, innovative system-level design efficiency, policy-driven power and thermal management, and highly efficient standards-based Energy Smart components. All these elements are designed to increase energy efficiency across our latest core data center servers while delivering the performance your business requires.
Tests by Dell engineers have shown that the processors in the comparable HP DL380 can run 17% hotter than the PowerEdge™ R710 due to lower airflow, far exceeding Intel® design specifications at any room temperature.

With Dell Compellent, Dell EqualLogic and Dell PowerVault, we have created a comprehensive and innovative portfolio of storage products, all of which are easy to deploy, manage and grow. Whether you use network attached storage (NAS), direct attached storage (DAS), internet SCSI (iSCSI) or Fibre Channel (FC), Dell has a product that can meet your business needs and reduce the cost and complexity of storage.
|The Value of Dell Storage:|
Dell’s open, standards-based solutions let customers of all sizes integrate new technologies without sacrificing performance or their existing IT investments.
|Direct-Attached Storage: |
The Dell PowerVault MD storage family offers easy and economical expansion for Dell PowerEdge servers enabling high availability and scalability for demanding business applications.
|Disk-to-Disk Backup |
Due to expanding volumes of data that must be backed up and protected along with shrinking backup windows, many IT departments have moved to or added disk-based backups.
|Network-Attached Storage |
NAS is a specialized storage server with its own IP address that is made available to multiple clients and servers on a local area network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN).
|Object-Based Storage |
The Dell DX Object Storage Platform is designed to intelligently access, store, protect and distribute fixed digital content.
|Storage Area Network |
A storage area network (SAN) is a network of shared storage devices, such as disk storage arrays and tape automation
|Tape Backup |
Considered the first and last line of defense against data loss, tape and removable disks can be used for long-term data storage and backup.
|Unified Storage |
Unified Storage is a term that describes the ability to manage both file- and block-level data.
