The Dell PowerEdge R730 Gen13 delivers an industry leading, affordable rack server option for SMBs and large enterprise operations. Adaptable and powerful, the two socket R730 takes full advantage of the latest Xeon v4 processors and DDR4 memory.
Pricing for pre-configured models starting at:
The PowerEdge R730 is a two-socket, 2U rack server ideal for mission-critical applications, enterprise level computing, and is used by professionals in the areas oil & gas exploration, financial analysis, 3D rendering, distribution rendering, and scientific applications. Designed to be highly scalable and energy efficient, the R730 offers top notch server consolidation, management features, and build quality in a 2U package. On site and remote system management options give administrators intuitive tools to access and maintain system health and deploy applications from virtually anywhere.
The R730 is designed to handle virtually any task, from general compute processing to high performance computing, which requires high bandwidth and enhanced networking.
The PowerEdge R730 supports two Xeon E5-2600 v3 processors or two Xeon E5-2600 v4 processors. When loaded with two of Intel's top of the line E5-2600 v4 processors, 44 cores and 88 virtual threads are available. With 24 DDR4 DIMM slots loaded with 64GB memory modules the R730 can house an impressive 1.5TB of memory. The R730 has the processing power, storage, and memory to deliver more, larger, and higher-performing virtual machines for both data centers and cloud platforms.
Two 300W dual-width GPUs can be installed to increase performance and processing power for graphics-intensive virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) implementations such as computer-aided design and manufacturing, in addition to research and development applications.
Using SQL Server 2012 Advisor in tandem with the PowerEdge R730 allows users to perform custom-build capacity planning and sizing for Microsoft SQL Server database deployments based on specific hardware, software, and availability requirements. Utilization of VMWare allows for the deployment and management of multiple virtual machine environments. Depending on your needs the system supports several operating systems including Microsoft Windows Server, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, VMware, and Citrix XenServer. The R730 and its more powerful counterpart the R730xd are both SAP HANA certified appliances.
The beautiful yet compact design of the PowerEdge R730 chassis gives easy access to internal component and illustrates Dell's attention to detail. Blue touch points indicate removable components and make maintenance and upgrade a breeze. The CPU and DIMM sockets are laid out in a neat row in the center of the chassis and are kept cool by up to six hot plug fans. An easily removable plastic air shroud channels cool air over the system memory and processors and out the back of the system.
The R730 can be monitored remotely via the OpenManage Mobile app or you can connect to the server directly with iDRAC8 Quick Sync. An optional quick Sync bezel allows Android devices equipped with Near Field Communications (NFC) technology to access system health reports and logs with just a touch. VPN's can easily be deployed and monitored via a laptop connected to the server's embedded iDRAC8 management-console interface for robust system management.
6 hot-plug fan modules handle heat distribution and overall system cooling allowing for high server functionality while maintaining low noise levels. Failed fans are easily removed and replaced without the use of any tools. While the fans may make some noise on initial start-up, once the system is up and running, it's surprisingly quiet, and rarely if ever kicks into overdrive.
Edward J Corrie of www.crn.com noted, "In terms of power consumption, efficiency was clearly in evidence throughout testing. We monitored the consumption of the R730's redundant hot-swap power supplies, which hovered around 86 watts during benchmarks and settled at 56 watts during idle times. Neither drew more than 113 watts at any time." (Source)
The R730 features seven PCI-e 3.0 slots, allowing for maximum scalability and expansion when used for high-performance computing. The internal hard drive bay holds up to 16 x 2.5" HDD, SAS, or SATA drives, or up to 8 x 3.5" HDD, SAS, or SATA drives. Depending on your configuration, the R730 can support up to 48TB of storage. Dell's tool-less chassis design along with hot-plug hard drives, hot-plug redundant cooling, and hot-plug redundant power ensure components can be easily removed resulting in less downtime and ease of maintenance for your IT staff.
