Dell PowerEdge R710
Dell next-generation Intel® Xeon® processor-based 2U rack server.
- Enhanced memory capacity and I/O (input/output)
- Great virtualisation and database performance
- Lifecycle Controller for advanced systems management
Increased Virtualization PerformanceThe PowerEdge™ R710 is designed with 125 percent more memory capacity and more integrated I/O than the previous generation PowerEdge™ 2950 III. This increased capacity is crucial for virtualization performance and scalability. The R710 allows for quick virtualization deployment with embedded hypervisors from leading vendors using a secure digital (SD) card or internal USB.
Intel® VT FlexMigration integrates multiple generations of Intel Xeon processor-based servers, improving flexibility and investment protection.
New Double Data Rate 3 (DDR3) memory offers higher bandwidth and lower power consumption than previous FBD or Double Data Rate (DDR2) technologies. Increased memory slots allow you to use smaller, less expensive dual in-line memory modules (DIMMs) to meet computing needs and balance cost.
Simplified Systems ManagementThe next generation Dell OpenManage™ suite offers enhanced operations and standards-based commands designed to integrate with existing systems for effective control.
Lifecycle Controller is the engine for advanced systems management integrated on the server. Lifecycle Controller simplifies administrator tasks to perform a complete set of provisioning functions such as system deployment, system updates, hardware configuration and diagnostics from a single intuitive interface called Unified Server Configurator (USC) in a pre-OS environment. This eliminates the need to use and maintain multiple pieces of disparate CD/DVD media.
The new Dell™ Management Console (DMC), powered by Altiris from Symantec, delivers a single view and a common data source into the entire infrastructure. Dell Management Console is built on the Symantec™ Management Platform (formerly Altiris® Notification Server), an easily extensible, modular foundation that can provide basic hardware management or more advanced functions such as asset and security management.
Dell™ Management Console helps reduce or eliminate manual processes so less time and money are spent keeping the lights on and more time can be spent on strategic uses of technology.
The Dell™ Unified Server Configurator delivers a single access point for secure, efficient and user-friendly infrastructure management. Embedded and integrated into the system, it provides:
- Quick and consistent access
- Excellent flexibility
- Advanced capabilities
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.

Dell Management Plug-in for VMware vCenter
What if you could manage your physical infrastructure from your virtual console?
What if you could rapidly and consistently provision hardware and deploy virtual machines from within VMware vCenter?
What if you could reduce the number of steps needed to deploy virtual infrastructure?
With the Dell Management Plug-In for VMware vCenter installed in your VMware environment, you can:
• Get deep-level detail from Dell servers for inventory, monitoring and alerting— all from within vCenter
• Deploy BIOS and firmware updates to Dell servers from within vCenter
• Build hardware and hypervisor profiles and deploy any combination of the two on bare-metal Dell PowerEdge servers without a preboot execution environment (PXE)
• Automatically perform Dell-recommended vCenter actions based on Dell hardware alerts
• Access Dell hardware warranty information online
And, to give you even more power, we deliver our plug-in as a virtual appliance. That makes it easier to deploy and configure and offers integration directly into the vCenter console, providing more information inside of vCenter itself — unlike many other vendors who provide only "link-and-launch" capabilities to point to their own proprietary consoles.
The combination of the Dell Management Plug-In for VMware vCenter and the revolutionary embedded management features offered by Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller in Dell PowerEdge servers gives you an unmatched level of integration between vCenter and your server hardware.
