Dell PowerEdge R740 CTO Rack Server Product Description

The PowerEdge R740 was designed to accelerate application performance leveraging accelerator cards and storage scalability. The 2-socket, 2U platform has the optimum balance of resources to power the most demanding environments.

Expand and optimize application performance

The scalable business architecture of the R740 can scale up to three 300W or six 150W GPUs, or up to four FPGAs.  With up to 16 2.5” drives or 8 3.5” drives the R740 provides the versatility to adapt to virtually any application and provides the perfect platform for VDI deployments.

  • Scale your VDI deployments with 3 double-width GPUs, supporting up to 50% more users when compared to R730.
  • Free up storage space using internal M.2 SSDs optimized for boot.
  • Scale compute resources with Intel Xeon Scalable delivering a 27% increase in processing cores and 50% increase in bandwidth over previous generation of Xeon processors

Automate systems management with OpenManage

The Dell EMC OpenManage portfolio helps deliver peak efficiency for PowerEdge servers, delivering intelligent, automated management of routine tasks. Combined with unique agent-free management capabilities,  the R740 is simply managed, freeing up time for high profile projects.

  • Simplify management with the New OpenManage Enterprise console, with customized reporting  and automatic discovery.
  • Take advantage of QuickSync 2 capabilities and gain access to your servers easily through your phone or tablet.
