  • Virtualization

This is one of the supported Blade Servers, each Modular Enclosure is a separate CTO you must configure.

The Dell PowerEdge M820 blade server delivers exceptional performance and scalability for core business applications or consolidated environments with no compromise on enterprise-class features.

The PowerEdge M820’s scalability makes it a perfect fit for core business applications or consolidated workloads. Virtual environments supporting large numbers of sizeable virtual machines will find the M820 a perfect choice. With up to four Intel Xeon E5-4600 processors and up to 1.5TB of RAM per node—12TB of memory in just a single M1000e chassis—the M820’s remarkable computational capability and memory scalability can address even the toughest demands. With Dell’s Select Network Adapter, you can fully customize the I/O capabilities of the M820 to match the networking technology that’s right for your applications.

Ensure business continuity

Ensure maximum uptime with the fully redundant M-series power, cooling and networking infrastructure designed to provide the stability and resiliency our customers demand for Enterprise-class deployments. The M820’s design matches Dell’s commitment to reliability, with features such as multiple hardware RAID choices and our unique failsafe virtualization technology, which utilizes redundant SD media to provide failover capabilities for embedded hypervisors.

Improve operational efficiency

Help manage your servers using the Dell OpenManage portfolio, including Dell’s exclusive Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller. iDRAC, an embedded systems management feature, allows Dell servers to be managed in physical, virtual, local and remote environments, either in-band or out-of-band and with or without a systems management software agent. OpenManage also integrates and connects to leading third-party systems management solutions you may already use, allowing you to maintain a single point of control and capitalize on your existing investment. OpenManage simplifies the lifecycle of deploying, updating, monitoring, and maintaining your Dell PowerEdge servers.

The PowerEdge M-series blade server line

Implement the right combination of features and performance scalability with the PowerEdge M-series blade servers that can handle tough workloads in any size data centers. In addition to the world-class management features provided in all PowerEdge servers, the M820 also takes advantage of the capabilities of the M1000e Chassis Management Controller (CMC). The CMC allows M-series blades to be managed individually or as groups, in single or multiple chassis, and within a data center or in multiple geographically dispersed locations around the globe without requiring a single agent or additional hardware. PowerEdge M-series blade servers use the redundant power, cooling, and networking infrastructure provided by the Dell M1000e blade enclosure, which is exceptionally easy to deploy and manage and maximizes power and cooling efficiency.
