The Dell PowerEdge R720 server is built to run complex workloads using its highly scalable memory, I/O capacity and flexible network options. Designed to excel at running a wide range of virtualisation environments and applications for both mid-size and large enterprises, the 2U rack server is powered by dual Intel E5-2600 series processors and supports eight 3.5 inch (LFF) drives totalling 32TB capacity. The Dell PowerEdge R720 can readily handle very demanding workloads such as e-commerce, data warehouses, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), databases and high performance computing (HPC) as a data node.
Great CPU and memory options
The R720 server features twin CPU sockets, allowing for two E5 series Intel Xeon processors, designed for architecting next-generation data centres and delivering versatility across diverse workloads, making them ideal for intensive use. The server has a huge memory capacity of 768GB DDR3 RAM across 24 DIMM and features 7 PCI-E slots as well as optional hot-plug, front-access PCI-E SSDs (max. 4) which enable performance enhancing in-box storage tiering.
Fast, flexible controllers
The server presents a great choice of network and storage controllers, with either embedded Broadcom or Intel NICs up to 2GbE and a wide range of PERC RAID controllers installed. The choice of controllers will depend on the rest of the server configuration as well as taking into consideration potential increases in bandwidth. The R720 server supports twin titanium efficiency (up to 96% efficient) PSUs, with a great choice available ranging from 495W to 1100W, again depending upon the requirements of the configuration.
