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.

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)

Flexibility refedined

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 that has the flexibility you need to design today’s solution and the scalability you require to add or change data center options to meet future demands.


Ethernet

Ethernet


The M-Series enclosure supports a broad set of modular gigabit Ethernet (GbE), 10GbE and Enhanced Ethernet blade switches.

Dell's fully modular PowerConnect™ and Dell Force10™ switches provide great flexibility, with choices of 1Gb to 10Gb speeds, flexible modular uplinks of varying media types, and many other valuable features. The PowerConnect and Dell Force10 portfolio offers a selection of switches that can meet even the most extreme networking demands.

For Cisco Catalyst customers, Dell provides models that span from simple, no frills GbE to more capable models with stacking or even 10GbE uplinks. The more advanced switches feature Cisco's Virtual Blade Switch functionality, enabling you to interconnect up to nine switches to create a single logical switch, thereby simplifying data center management.


Fibre Channel


Brocade 8Gb Fibre Channel Switches provide powerful connectivity to Fibre Channel SANs, such as those offered by Dell/EMC. The M5424 includes 12-port and 24-port configurations as well as a performance pack for enhanced features and management.

For heterogeneous integration into any Fibre Channel network, the Brocade M5424 Fibre Channel switch can even be enabled in Access Gateway mode. Based on N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) functionality, Access Gateway mode delivers the cable aggregation benefits and cost savings offered by Dell’s M-Series blade solutions without separate management or configuration requirements.

Fibre Channel

InfiniBand

InfiniBand


For high-performance computing (HPC) or other environments requiring the highest bandwidth and lowest latency available, the M-Series offers InfiniBand™ switches and adapter cards. Dell offers chassis-integrated quad data rate (QDR) and fourteen data rate (FDR) InfiniBand switches from Mellanox, with speeds of up to 56Gbps. Each switch features 16 internal ports and 8 external ports to ensure the availability and redundancy needed for the most demanding applications.
