A member of the 13th generation PowerEdge family of servers, the Dell M630 half-height server blade is ideal for implementations in private clouds, remote offices, and IT as a service (XaaS) applications. The flexible, scalable design also allows administrators to optimize in-server storage and I/O performance to accommodate existing and future business needs. Power, cooling, and systems management are handled at the enclosure level.
The Dell M630 blade server features Intel's C610 chipset and supports up to two Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4 processors. V4 processors offer more cores and up to 28% greater memory bandwidth compared with the v3 version, and depending on your choice of processor deliver four to 22 cores each. With dual processors, that means up to 44 cores total, and more cores means support for more virtual machines and increased performance. The M630 server blade also offers twice the storage compared to the previous generation M620.
Each CPU supports 12 DDR4 memory modules. In a two-processor configuration with all 24 DIMM slots loaded with 64GB memory modules, the system supports up to 1.5TB with data transfer rates of up to 2400MT/s depending on the processor. Both RDIMM and LRDIMM memory is supported.
With a dual processor configuration the M630 server blade supports up to four 1.8-inch SSD drives up front, and two 2.5-inch PCIe SSDs. Several storage options are available including Express Flash NVME PCIe SSDs, and SAS, SATA SSDs and HDDs. Administrators also have a choice of internal RAID controllers, and two PCIe 3.0 expansion slots with optional I/O mezzanine cards. The system includes redundant hypervisor support.
Two PCIe 3.0 expansion slots are accessible on the I/O mezzanine cards providing support for additional NICs, HBAs and Fibre channel HBAs.
Enterprise-class systems management is handled by the usual cast of characters including OpenManage Essentials, iDRAC 8 Express and Dell's Chassis management Controller (CMC). Dell offers licensed versions of iDRAC and OpenManage that support more features and functionality. CMC is an embedded component that handles the converged infrastructure in each chassis and monitors all chassis in the enclosure through a standard web browser.
The M630 is an excellent platform for high performance computing featuring highly accessible high-density memory for virtualization and demanding applications. Provisioning and deployment has also been updated with the Active Systems Manager featuring template-based server and IO configurations, an out-of-the-box template library, and cloud enablement supporting infrastructure and a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) for Red Hat and VMware.
We can supply this server with a different specification to suit your requirements; more or less memory, different or additional hard drives, additional network cards etc. Please contact us for a quote.
