Dell PowerEdge M420 CTO Blade Server Product Description

The Dell PowerEdge M420 quarter-height blade server delivers unprecedented computational density, allowing up to 32 individually serviceable blade servers per chassis, with no compromise on enterprise-class features.

PowerEdge M420

  • Ultra-dense, quarter-height blade
  • Individually serviceable
  • Hot-plug solid-state drives and hardware RAID
  • Impressive systems management capabilities
  • Leverages M1000e enclosure

Enjoy remarkable computational density with the PowerEdge M420, capable of deploying 32 server nodes in just 10U of rack space. Scaling up to 16 processor cores and 192GB of RAM, each M420 couples processing power and memory capacity with tremendous I/O throughput, with up to four ports of 10Gb ethernet available in an exceptionally compact, individually serviceable form factor. From entry and mid-tier business applications, to high node-count virtual environments, and even distributed workloads such as cloud or high perfromance computing (HPC) environments, the M420 provides advantages for virtually any data center where a large number of computational nodes need to be deployed in minimal space.

Dell M1000e Blade Architecture

Ensure business continuity

Dell’s no-compromise approach towards enterprise-class features on our M-series blade servers is not limited by the M420’s ultra-dense form-factor. The fully redundant and individually serviceable M420 platform offers such capabilities as hardware RAID and hot-pluggable dual solid-state drives in order to ensure maximum uptime. Dell’s unique failsafe virtualization technology even extends the redundancy and resiliency of the M420 to virtual environments, offering a redundant, failover-capable infrastructure 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 PowerEdge servers.

 

PowerEdge M-series blade server line

Implement the right combination of features and performance scalability with the PowerEdge M-series blade servers, which can handle tough workloads in any size data centers. In addition to the world-class management features provided in all PowerEdge servers, the M420 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. In addition to the existing networking infrastructure, the new Dell Force10 MXL 10Gb switch provides next-generation port density and bandwidth for exceptional throughput. PowerEdge M-series blade servers use the redundant power and cooling infrastructure provided by the Dell M1000e blade enclosure, which is exceptionally easy to deploy and manage, and maximizes power and cooling efficiency.
