Maximized PCI Express 2.0 Expansion Is Finally Realized Within a Blade
The PowerEdge™ M610x full-height two-socket blade server couples all the capabilities of the M610 blade with an expansion module containing x16 PCI Express (PCIe) 2.0 expansion slots that can support up to two standard full-length/full-height PCIe cards.
- PowerEdge M610x gives you a proven, reliable blade server to host your full range of PCIe card-based solutions.
- PCIe expansion capabilities bring a new dimension of flexibility and performance to the Dell™ M-series.
- Supplemental power and modular cooling support up to two 250-Watt cards or one 300-Watt card.
- PCIe expansion module includes two full-length x16 PCIe Gen2 slots and two standard blade I/O (input/output) mezzanine cards.
- Supplemental power connectors enable maximum wattage for one 300 W dual-slot card or two 250 W single-slot cards.
- PCIe slots support everything from H-series external RAID controllers to general-purpose graphics processing units (GPGPUs).
Communication between the host system and the Tesla processors is maximized by the x16 PCIe 2.0 bandwidth while the efficient Dell M1000e chassis powers and cools the solution to its maximum 247 W TDP.
- Ideal PCIe host server that features the reliability of two 2.5 inch serial attached SCSI (SAS) or solid-state drive (SSD) hot-swappable hard drives and the I/O (input/output) production of a dual-port embedded gigabit network interface card (NIC) and two additional network daughter cards.
Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series plus up to 192GB/s of Double Data Rate 3 (DDR3) memory offer high performance with low power consumption for a variety of dense-environment workloads.
Efficiently powered and modularly cooled PCIe expansion module delivers up to 8GB/s of application production.
With the addition of the PCIe expansion module, the PowerEdge™ M610x blade server is an ideal solution for organizations that need maximum flexibility, performance and reliability.
- Automated discovery — CMC automates configuration of new hardware through a one-to-many relationship and enables pre-provisioning of local area network/storage area network (LAN/SAN) resources.
- One-to-many deploy and update — CMC and Virtual Media File Share enables customers to quickly and simply deploy OS images and updates to one or many blades in a chassis without agents, additional software or using Pre-Boot eXecution Environment (PXE).
- Proactive management — CMC provides immediate access to system status, issues and alerts through a single, easy-to-use interface plus one-click access to key functions to help quickly resolve any issues.
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.

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.
