Dell PowerEdge M710 CTO Blade Server Product Description

The Dell PowerEdge M710 delivers the exceptional bandwidth and performance today’s data center environments require.

Dell M1000e Blade Architecture

Strong IT foundation

To build the most efficient data center solutions, Dell sought input from IT professionals. You asked for reliability, scalability, energy efficiency, and a lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Our M710 blade servers deliver, becoming the cornerstone of a high-performance data center capable of keeping pace with your changing business demands.

Purposeful design

Today’s data centers demand performance, high availability and redundancy. Designed with those needs in mind, the M710 blade server uses the Intel Xeon processor 5500 and 5600 series. These processors adapt to your software in real time, processing more tasks simultaneously. Using Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, the M-Series blades can increase performance during peak usage periods. When demand decreases, Intel® Intelligent Power Technology helps reduce operating costs and energy usage by proactively putting your server into lower power states.

Dell’s innovative full-height M710 provides 18 DIMM slots and up to 288GB of total RAM, coupled with double the I/O capabilities of half-height blades and full-fabric redundancy on all three fabrics. The M710 blade server allows quick virtualization with software from leading industry vendors using an SD card or internal USB for embedded hypervisors.

Designed for Power Efficiency

The Dell PowerEdge M1000e blade enclosure with the M710 delivers outstanding performance per watt. The M1000e enclosure takes advantage of thermal design efficiencies, such as ultraefficient power supplies, dynamic power efficient fans and optimized airflow design that can efficiently cool the chassis to enable exceptional performance in a lower power envelope.

The Intel Xeon processor series is designed to adapt in real time to your software enabling multiple tasks to be done simultaneously, while boosting performance with Intel Turbo Boost Technology as business usage demands it most. It proactively puts your server into lower power states using Intel® Intelligent Power Technology during periods of low demand, helping reduce operating costs.

The dynamic power management technology allows you to set high/low power thresholds to enable efficient energy management.


Increased Memory Capacity and I/O for High-Performance Applications

Expanding to a full-height form factor enabled Dell to significantly increase the memory capacity of the M710 with 18 dual in-line memory module (DIMM) slots and up to 144 GB of total RAM.

New Double Data Rate 3 (DDR3) memory offers higher bandwidth and lower power consumption than previous Fully Buffered DIMM (FBD) or DDR2 RAM technologies. The numerous memory slots allow you to use smaller, less expensive DIMM to meet computing needs.
