The Dell PowerEdge R730 server excels at a wide range of demanding workloads for medium and large enterprises, such as e-commerce, data warehouses, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and high-performance computing (HPC). Powered by the Intel Xeon E5-2600/E5-2600 v3 processor family and with 24 DIMMs of high-capacity, low-power DDR4 memory, seven PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0 expansion slots and highly scalable local storage up to 29TB (2.5 inch), the R730 is extremely flexible and adaptable to your needs.
Advanced power and memory
The PowerEdge R720 server features a 6-core Intel Xeon E5-2620 v3 processor running at 2.40GHz, with a spare socket for a supplementary processor, allowing for the opportunity to double the processing power at a later date. The E5 family of processors were designed for architecting next-generation data centres and delivering versatility across diverse workloads, while the v3 series provides significant performance and power efficiency improvement over the previous-generation Intel Xeon E5-2600 processors. The server comes with 16GB DDR4 memory, with the opportunity to upgrade to a maximum capacity of 3TB. DDR4 is the most advanced memory format currently available, delivering 50% more bandwidth and 40% more energy efficiency than DDR3.
High performance controllers
The server comes fitted with a standard integrated network controller with upgrades available up to 4x10GbE, while the PERC H730 offers unmatched I/O performance for streaming digital media environments and database applications. Its eight internal ports deliver two PowerPC processor cores and a 72-bit DDR3 interface that drives 1GB non-volatile cache memory, affording administrators the chance to achieve maximum performance from their applications. The server is powered by a 495W power supply with a Platinum energy saving rating, affording up to 94% power efficiency.
