Setting the standard for feature flexibility in a 2-socket, 2U rack server, the Dell PowerEdge R720 is built to run complex workloads using its highly scalable memory, I/O capacity and flexible network options.
Designed to excel at running a wide range of applications and virtualization environments for both mid-size and large enterprises, the Dell PowerEdge R720 rack server is a general purpose platform with highly expandable memory (up to 768GB) and impressive I/O capabilities to match. With Intel Xeon E5-2600 processors, and the ability to support dual RAID controllers, the R720 can readily handle very demanding workloads, such as data warehouses, e-commerce, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), databases and high performance computing (HPC) as a data node.
Keep pace with the explosion of data in the virtual age with the flexible, powerful I/O and storage capabilities of the R720. Up to 16 internal hard drives and integrated PCI Express 3.0-capable expansion slots greatly increase your capacity, while optional hot-plug, front-access PCIe SSDs (up to 4) enable performance-enhancing, in-box storage tiering. Moreover, Dell Select Network Adapters, our flexible NIC technology, let you choose the right network fabric to match your needs without using up a valuable PCIe slot.
Boost the performance of your HPC or VDI environment by combining the PowerEdge R720’s memory density with an optional GPU accelerator (some with over 500 cores). Choose from a range of GPU options for greater assisted performance.
Maximize your data center’s application capacity by expanding your virtual environment using the PowerEdge R720’s large memory footprint. Choose an industry-leading hypervisor and take advantage of our system management capability to manage both physical and virtual assets. The R720 can help maximize your virtual machines’ uptime with redundant failsafe hypervisors. Finally, Dell’s Virtual Integrated System (VIS) solution lets you enable complex virtualization environments in just a few mouse clicks.
