Dell's R720 12th generation server is extremely adaptable and expandable for applications in highly virtualization environments. Featuring the Xeon E5-2600 and E5-2600 v2 processor family, DDR3 memory, and optional dual RAID controllers, this system can easily handle mission critical workloads servicing the needs of e-commerce, data warehouses, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) databases, and high performance computing as a data node. Packed with a winning combination of performance and scalability in a 2U design, the R720 is a great addition for any size business.
The R720 supports the entire family of Xeon E5 2600 and E5 2600 v2 processors. This gives administrators more choices when confronting budget and performance needs. Depending on the processor, the R720 can achieve memory speeds of up to 1866 MHz.
Dell's patented Fault Resilient Memory creates a protected memory zone on the hypervisor without dedicating half the system's available memory. DPAT, Dell's Processor Acceleration Technology minimizes the effect of Intel's Turbo Boost transitions, which can increase mechanical latency, and allows administrators to fix the number of active processor cores providing smoother performance. In addition, Dell's PERC RAID controller with the CacheCade feature improves overall read operations for significant improvements in performance.
CacheCade v1.0 accelerates read intensive applications and is supported on the PERC H710p and H810 cards with 1GB of memory. With CacheCade you can create as many drives as you want and IOPS read rates increase dramatically compared to systems with no CacheCade drive. Currently, Dell's CacheCade v1.0 only allows read operations to be cached. Version 2.0 promises increased functionality and performance.
With all 24 DIMM slots fitted with 32GB memory modules, a maximum of 764GB of memory is available. Up to 16 internal hard drives can be installed to maximize I/O and storage. Seven integrated PCI-e Gen 3 expansion slots and two double wide GPU cards are supported to accelerate your most demanding data analytics delivering faster, more efficient compute performance.
The server also supports Dell's Fresh Air initiative allowing systems to run reliably at higher temperatures of up to 45 Centigrade or 113 degrees Fahrenheit. Other manufacturer's systems are typically only designed to operate reliably up to 35 degrees centigrade or 93 degree Fahrenheit. The Fresh Air Initiative can help customers significantly reduce their heating & cooling costs, carbon footprint, and the risk posed by thermal climb after a power failure. Six hot-swap fans keeps the system running cool.
The R720 offers several different chassis configurations depending on your storage and performance needs.
For local management, OpenManage monitoring and management software is compatible with other third-party systems management solutions to allow for a single point of control over your system environment. This, and other innovative management tools, allow administrators to easily manage hardware, systems administration, and power consumption.
Remote management is handled by Dell's integrated iDRAC 7 Express Level Management Technology which comes standard negating the need to install additional software. Upgrading to iDRAC 7 Enterprise allows you to maintain complete server control and access your server from any remote location using a browser. 8GB and 16GB vFlash media offer optional upgrades to your remote management.
Featuring a complete internal re-design compared to the Gen 11 model, the R720 is a stand out performer when used for typical compute server applications. However, Dell's adoption of the latest Express Flash technology significantly increases performance and separates the R720 from other comparable products on the market.
