Ideal for:

  • Virtualization

Powerful and efficient 1-socket rack server for small and medium businesses (SMB) and remote office/branch office (ROBO).

The Dell EMC PowerEdge R230 is a powerful and versatile server that is ideal for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) looking to upgrade their IT infrastructure or for larger institutions seeking a reliable remote office/branch office (ROBO) solution. With its advanced features and capabilities, the R230 is an excellent choice for a first server or replacement server.

Discover greater versatility

Compared to its predecessor, the Dell PowerEdge R220, the R230 offers several significant improvements. These include greater memory capacity, more hard drives and I/O slots, and better data throughput and input/output operations per second (IOPs) performance. These enhancements allow the R230 to handle more demanding workloads and applications with ease, providing users with a more responsive and efficient computing experience.

Deliver powerful performance

One of the key advantages of the Dell EMC PowerEdge R230 is its support for the integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC8) with Lifecycle Controller. This advanced management tool allows users to remotely monitor, manage, and troubleshoot their servers from anywhere in the world, making it an excellent choice for ROBOs of large institutions. With the iDRAC8, users can quickly and easily deploy, update, and configure their servers, ensuring that they always run at peak performance.

Get organized and become more productive
  • Consolidate data from multiple laptops or desktops onto a single server with up to 4 x internal 3.5" cabled or hot-plug HDD.
  • Ensure fast response times with the latest quad core Intel Xeon E3-1200 v6 product family, as well as flexible dual core processor options including Intel Pentium, Intel Core i3, or Intel Celeron.
  • Adapt to changing workload conditions with a virtualization-ready server supporting Citrix XenServer, Microsoft Windows Server with Hyper-V, VMware vSphere ESXi, and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.

Accelerate application performance
  • Drive greater memory performance and expand capacity up to 64GB through time with 4 x DIMM slots and enhanced DDR4 memory, offering 50% faster clock speed than previous-generation DDR3 which is 12.5% faster than the initial 2133 MT/s implementation of DDR4.
  • Boost data throughput with 2 x PCIe Gen 3.0 slots driving 2x data throughput compared to Generation 2.0.
  • Drive 2x IOPS performance with the PowerEdge PERC9 RAID Controller compared to the previous-generation DELL PowerEdge R220 equipped with PERC8.
