Dell and the Environment
The Dell PowerEdge R715 has earned the ENERGY STAR® Enterprise Server designation.
ENERGY STAR and the ENERGY STAR mark are registered U.S. marks, Click here.
Immediate Performance, Lasting ValueThe PowerEdge™ R715 features AMD Opteron processor technology, designed to handle your most demanding workloads with superb stability, efficiency and long-term value.
Superb Reliability, Inspired by You
Technology and Design That Go the DistanceYou've told us you need a server manufacturer that inspires confidence through its reliability, availability and quality of products. With this in mind, we’ve set a simple reliability goal: Deliver quality products that stand the test of time.
To help meet your needs in the data center and beyond, we're dedicated to improving server reliability processes by:
- Utilizing robust, durable industrial materials to enable longer product life cycles
- Introducing a Unified Server Configurator (USC), which helps to minimize downtime by offering embedded and persistent diagnostics with no media required
- Improving redundancy generation over generation with features such as an internal dual SD module, which provides failover at the hypervisor level
- Implementing a “one-touch” quality-control process to ensure that one person is responsible for the entire server build
- Ensuring that every fully configured Dell™ server is tested — and re-tested — before it leaves the factory
Efficient for Your Environment
Efficiency From the Inside OutThe PowerEdge™ R715 features highly efficient fans that help to conserve energy by spinning in accordance with server workload demands. In addition, the internal shrouding and logical layout of the internal components aid with airflow direction, helping to cool the server.
Intelligent Power Management
Comprehensive, Cost-Effective Management
Dell™ systems management portfolio adheres to open standards, while focusing on the core principles you need: simplicity, cost-effectiveness and a holistic focus across the solutions stack.
Integrated on the server, the Lifecycle Controller helps administrators perform provisioning functions, such as diagnostics, hardware configuration and system deployment in a pre-OS environment — all from a single interface called the Unified Server Configurator (USC). This helps eliminate the need to use and maintain multiple pieces of CD/DVD media.
Interactive LCD Screen
The PowerEdge™ R715 features an interactive LCD screen positioned at the front of the server for easy setup, monitoring and maintenance. Plain-language diagnosis and a programmable messaging system can help users address issues quickly to simplify day-to-day monitoring.
Dell™ Management Console
Dell™ OpenManage™ systems management portfolio also includes the Dell Management Console, which is included with every Dell server and provides IT managers with a consolidated view of their entire IT infrastructure.

The Dell OpenManage systems management portfolio, including Dell PowerEdge server embedded management feature integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller, helps IT Administrators efficiently manage Dell servers in physical, virtual, local and remote environments, operating in band or out of band, with or without a systems management software agent. Irrespective of the operating system or hypervisor you deploy, iDRAC with Lifecycle Controller automates the most essential and frequently performed server management tasks to help your IT resources become more productive and your IT environment more cost-effective and well-maintained. Dell OpenManage also integrates and connects to leading third-party systems management solutions you may already own, so you can maintain your single point of control and capitalize on your existing investment.
Solutions and Systems Management
Dell Desktop Virtualization Solutions
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.
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
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 is a term that describes the ability to manage both file- and block-level data.
