A highly versatile, two-socket 2U rack server with impressive processor performance, a large memory footprint, extensive I/O options and a choice of dense, high performance storage or low-cost, high-capacity storage.
The PowerEdge R730 excels at a wide range of demanding workloads for midsize and large enterprises, such as data warehouses, e-commerce, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), databases and high-performance computing HPC) as a data node. When configured with 3.5" drives, the R730 provides up to 64TB of rapidly accessed storage for databases, business intelligence and HPC applications.
Deliver peak performance
Drive peak compute performance across a variety of workloads with the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 product family and state-of-the-art DDR4 memory. Boost data access for applications with up to 16 x 12Gbps SAS drives and high-performance dual RAID. Take advantage of advanced accelerators and GPUs to maximize performance in HPC, VDI and imaging environments.
Discover greater versatility
With 24 DIMMs of high-capacity, low-power DDR4 memory, seven PCI Express® (PCIe) 3.0 expansion slots and highly scalable local storage, the R730 is extremely flexible. Create a dense, resourcerich virtualization environment with up to 16 x 2.5" drives. Combine that with the R730’s GPU capability to save infrastructure costs and consolidate management operations in a scalable and centralized virtual desktop environment. The GPU option also makes the R730 an excellent choice as a midrange medical imaging solution.
