Dell PowerEdge R740xd CTO Rack Server Product Description

The PowerEdge R740xd delivers a perfect balance between storage scalability and performance. The 2U two-socket platform is ideal for software defined storage, service providers or as virtual desktop infrastructure

Maximize performance and capacity

The scalable system architecture behind the R740xd with up to 24 NVMe drives creates the ideal balance between scalability and performance. The R740xd versatility is highlighted with the ability to mix any drive type to create the optimum configuration of NVMe, SSD and HDD for either performance, capacity or both. The R740xd is the platform of choice for software defined storage and is the foundation for ScaleIO, VSAN or the PowerEdge XC.

  • Maximize storage performance with up to 24 NVMe drives and ensure application performance scales to meet demands.
  • Free up storage space using internal M.2 SSDs optimized for boot.
  • Simplify and accelerate ScaleIO or VMware vSAN deployments with validated, pre-bundled and tailored Ready Nodes.
  • Accelerate workloads with up to 3 double-width 300W GPUs, up to 6 single-width 150W GPUs or up to 4 FPGAs.

Automate systems management with OpenManage

Dell EMC PowerEdge servers with OpenManage technology work at peak efficiency for PowerEdge servers, delivering intelligent, automated management of routine tasks. Combined with unique agent-free management capabilities, the R740xd 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.
