The Dell PowerEdge™ M605 blade server, featuring the latest six-core AMD Opteron processors, removes complexity to help your servers run better, use space smarter and cost less overtime. Dell PowerEdge blades address data center server sprawl and complexity by delivering one of the most energy-efficient, flexible and manageable blade servers on the market.
Dell’s most energy-efficient blade solution, the PowerEdge M605 offers outstanding virtualization performance in a two-socket blade server combined with factory-integrated virtualization capabilities. Dell continues to simplify virtualization by streamlining virtualization deployment and providing ease of use in virtual infrastructures. By factory-integrating VMware® ESXi 3.5, customers receive VMware capabilities and migration of virtual machines within a few clicks of a mouse.
Our virtualization-ready server configurations provide an easy path to virtualization through factory-integrated hypervisors and recommended hardware configurations that support an ideal virtual infrastructure.
Designed for energy efficiency and density, blade servers address the growing power and space constraints of your data center. The M605 blade server is one of the most energy efficient blade products on the market, and has a 60% greater density than traditional 1U servers. Energy efficiency and density that can’t be beat.
Power-saving innovations are built into all AMD Opteron™ processors, from the ultra low-power AMD Opteron™ EE processors to the highest performing processors in the product family, the AMD Opteron™ SE processors.
With blade servers expanding your data center has never been easier. Once you have installed a blade enclosure, adding another server is as simple as sliding in a new blade and powering it up. Coupled with the Altiris® Deployment Solution for Dell servers and Dell Management Console, Dell blades are one of the easiest to deploy and manage in the industry.
The M605 blade server is paired with the M1000e modular blade enclosure for an optimized blade solution. The M1000e is designed from the ground up to combat IT complexity and delivers one of the most energy-efficient, flexible and manageable blade server products in the industry. Designed to support future generations of Dell blade servers and technologies, your M1000e investment is protected for the future.

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.
Dell's fully modular Ethernet switches provide great flexibility, with choices of 1Gb to 10Gb speeds, flexible modular uplinks of varying media types, and many other valuable features. This portfolio offers a selection of switches that can meet even the most extreme networking demands.
Brocade 16Gb Fibre Channel Switches provide powerful connectivity to Fibre Channel SANs, such as those offered by Dell/EMC. The M6505 includes 16 internal and 8 external fabric port options as well as a performance pack for enhanced features and management.
For heterogeneous integration into any Fibre Channel network, the Brocade M5424 8Gb 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.
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 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.
