Dell's PowerEdge M830 supports up to 48 DIMMS of DDR4 memory when powered by a maximum of four Xeon processors. It’s designed for compute-intensive workloads, highly virtualized environments, and mission-critical database applications.
The M830 supports 83% more processing cores than the previous generation M820 using Intel's Xeon E5-4600 v4 processors. Xeon E5-4600 v3 processors are also supported but offer less cores than the v4 processors. Administrators can start out with two or four processors.
In a four processor configuration the M830 will support 48 DIMMs total of DDR4 memory offering a 28% gain in performance over DDR3 memory modules. Each processor supports 12 memory modules. Administrators can start out with just two processors and 24 DIMMs and easily scale to support more memory by adding additional processors. A maximum of 3TB of memory is available with four processors running 64GB memory modules supporting transfer speeds of up to 2400MT/s.
Data-intensive workloads are no match for the M830 which supports either 12 2.5-inch SSDs or up to 25 2.5-inch HDDs for up to 72TB of storage capacity. Supported drive types include SAS and SATA SSDs and HDDs. There's also support for a maximum of two 2.5-inch PCIe SSDs. HD storage is handled by the integrated S130 software RAID controller or your choice of optional PERC RAID controllers featuring the full range of RAID options. An optional internal Dual SD Module offers redundant hypervisor supporting a mirrored configuration with two cards or it can be used with a single card but without redundancy.
The M830 is a compute blade that is installed in a blade enclosure, and as such cooling, networking, and power are handled at the chassis level. For I/O intensive workloads the system supports 24 10GbE ports connected to three redundant low-latency fabrics. Video is supported by a Matrox G200 module supported on the iDRAC8 sharing 12MB application memory.
Blades can be managed individually or collectively using Dell’s Chassis Management Controller (CMC) in more than one chassis, and more than one location on your network. Agent-free management of the blade is provided by iDRAC8 which resides on the system board of the M830 and provides real-time management of the server and internal storage devices. OpenManage with Lifestyle Controller helps Administrators deploy, update, and support automation on demand, improving efficiency and automatically updating inventory.
Blade systems offer flexibility, reliability, and efficiency with a smaller hardware footprint and a lower total cost of ownership with shared power, cooling, and management features. The M830 Blade is designed to meet growing IT demands with a scalable architecture and rapid access to additional storage in the form of NAS and SAN. Dell's M830 is a great addition to your M1000e enclosure of shared infrastructure VRTX offering generous memory and storage with four-processor performance. This is an ideal platform for extreme virtualization and database applications that require low-latency and high-throughput.
