The versatility of the PowerEdge R730 server delivers better functionality in a 2U of rack space.
The versatility of the PowerEdge R730 server delivers better functionality in a 2U of rack space. With the combination of powerful processors, large memory, fast storage options and GPU accelerator support, the R730 performs exceptionally well in a number of demanding environments.
With the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v3 product family and up to 24 DIMMs of DDR4 RAM, the R730 has the processing cycles and threads and large memory footprint necessary to deliver more, larger and higher-performing virtual machines for data centers and cloud platforms.
Highly scalable storage, with up to sixteen 12Gb SAS drives and the high-performance 12Gb PowerEdge RAID Controller (PERC9), can greatly accelerate data access for your virtualized environment. In addition, the R730 can take advantage of optional Dell Fluid Cache for SAN and SanDisk DAS Cache application acceleration technology for even faster data access
The option for up to two 300W dual-width accelerators/GPUs (choose from Intel® Xeon Phi™, NVIDIA® Tesla® and AMD FirePro™) supports environments that require processing acceleration, including graphics-intensive virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) implementations, such as CAD/CAM and other research and development applications. Seven PCIe Gen3 expansion slots plus a dedicated slot for a RAID controller further enhance IO flexibility to help make the R730 an ideal compute node for IT as a service (XaaS) providers as well as high-performance computing (HPC) and medical-imaging solutions.
The 2S/2U R730 can be easily configured as a reliable, general-purpose server for business-critical applications, with scale-out storage, automated management and high-availability features, such as:
