An exceptionally flexible and scalable, two-socket 2U rack server that delivers highperformance processing and a broad range of workload-optimized local storage possibilities, including hybrid tiering.
Designed with an incredible range of configurability, the PowerEdge R730xd meets the needs of many different workloads with the latest Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 product family, 24 DIMMs of high-performance DDR4 memory and a broad range of local storage options.
Drive peak performance
Accelerate application performance with the latest technologies and dynamic local storage. Scale quickly and easily with front-accessible devices, ranging from low-cost SATA hard drives to 1.8” ultra-fast, low-latency PowerEdge Express Flash NVMe PCIe SSDs. Use hybrid storage configurations to tailor the R730xd to your workload needs and implement tiered-storage efficiencies. Combine 24-drive capacity with dual- PERC capability to drive storage performance and take advantage of new Dell caching technologies to boost application performance even more.
Discover greater versatility
Unlike previous PowerEdge servers, the R730xd can be tailored for application performance by mixing high-speed 1.8” SSDs and low-cost, high-capacity 3.5” hard drives in a single hybrid chassis, enabling accelerated data access through in-server storage tiering.
- In its 24-drive, dual-PERC configuration, the R730xd can be an excellent database server delivering more than one million IOPS performance.
- Combine 26 drives with 24 DIMMs of memory and six PCI Express® (PCIe) expansion slots to provide a resource-rich virtualization environment.
- With up to four ultra-fast, ultra-low latency Express Flash NVMe PCIe SSDs, the R730xd can boost performance on critical workloads and share the cache with other server.
- In its low-cost 16 x 3.5” drive configuration with up to 128TB capacity, the R730xd is an excellent Microsoft® SharePoint® and Exchange® server for unified communications and collaboration (UC&C) and delivers the scale-out storage efficiency demanded by today’s XaaS providers, Hadoop/big data users and colocation hosting.
Maximize operational efficiency
PowerEdge servers let you construct and manage highly efficient infrastructures for data centers and small businesses. Accelerate time-to-production with automated deployment processes that use fewer manual steps and reduce human error. Improve IT productivity in the data center with innovative at-the-server management tools, like iDRAC Quick Sync and iDRAC Direct to deliver in-depth system health status and speed deployment. Optimize data center energy usage with improved performance-per-watt and more granular control of power and cooling.
Innovative management with intelligent automation
The Dell OpenManage systems management portfolio includes innovative solutions that simplify and automate essential server lifecycle management tasks — making IT operations more efficient and Dell servers the most productive, reliable and cost effective. Leveraging the incomparable agent-free capabilities of the PowerEdge embedded integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller technology, server deployment, configuration and updates are streamlined across the OpenManage portfolio and through integration with third-party management solutions.
Monitoring and control of Dell and third-party data center hardware is provided by OpenManage Essentials and with anytime, anywhere mobile access, through OpenManage Mobile. OpenManage Essentials also delivers Server Configuration Management capabilities that automate one-to-many PowerEdge bare-metal server and OS deployments, quick and consistent replication of configurations and ensure compliance to a predefined baseline with automated drift detection.
