Dell PowerEdge R330 CTO Rack Server Product Description

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

The Dell EMC PowerEdge R330 is an excellent first server or replacement server for SMB and also highly attractive as an affordable ROBO server for large institutions. Compared to the previous-generation PowerEdge R320, the R330 supports DDR4 memory vs. DDR3, PERC9 vs. PERC8, the integrated Dell Remote Access Controller 8 (iDRAC8) vs. iDRAC7, and an Intel Xeon E3 processor vs. an Intel Xeon E5 in the previous-generation server.

PowerEdge R330

  • 1-socket rack server with a powerful Intel Xeon E3-1200 v6 processor
  • Up to 4 x DDR4 DIMMs
  • Up to 4 x 3.5" hard drives or up to 8 x 2.5" hard drives

Discover greater versatility

Harness data growth with up to four internal 3.5-inch cabled or hotplug hard drives, or up to eight 2.5-inch hot-plug hard drives. Grow memory capacity through time with four DIMM slots supporting up to 64GB of DDR4 memory to drive application performance and rapid response times. Adapt flexibly to changing workload conditions with a virtualization-ready server supporting Microsoft Windows Server with Hyper-V, VMware vSphere ESXi and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.

Deliver powerful performance

Accelerate system boot time with up to two optional 1.8-inch SSDs. Drive 50% faster clock speed with enhanced DDR4 memory compared to DDR3, which is 12.5% faster than the initial 2133 MT/s implementation of DDR4. Boost I/O data throughput with two PCIe 3.0 slots for 2x data throughput compared to PCIe 2.0. Deliver 2x IOPS performance with R330/PERC9 compared to the previousgeneration R320/PERC8.

Accelerate application performance in SMB and Remote Office/Branch Office

Drive applications faster while providing room for future growth with the latest Intel processors, DDR4 memory and PCIe Gen3 I/O.
  • 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 previous-generation PowerEdge R320 equipped with PERC8.
  • 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.


Discover greater versatility

  • Harness data growth with up to 4 x internal 3.5" cabled or hot plug HDD or 8 x 2.5" hot plug HDD.
  • Enhance storage options with up to two optional 1.8" SSD drives to accelerate system boot/reboot time.
  • Adapt to changing workload conditions with a virtualization-ready server supporting Citrix ZenServer, Microsoft Hyper -V, VMware vSphere ESXi, and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.
