Pricing for pre-configured models starting at:
The R730xd offers a significant increase in performance over the previous generation R720xd and significantly more storage and storage configuration options than the R730. While the R730 can handle up to 16 2.5-inch or 8 3.5-inch HDDs or SSDs the R730xd supports nearly twice as much storage with up to 24 2.5-inch or 16 3.5-inch HDDs or SSDs and even offers a Hybrid configuration featuring 1.8-inch SATA SSDs.
The R730xd features Intel's C610 chipset and supports both Xeon E5-2600 v3 and v4 series processors. Two processors, and massive amounts of storage and memory, help deliver impressive performance. Embedded PCIe lanes also provide for faster IOPS. Several different chassis options are available depending on your needs for performance or storage. The R730xd is extremely flexible and can quickly scale-out if you start with a single processor.
The system supports DDR4 memory, and when used with certain E5-2600 v4 processors can operate at 2400Mhz. With the E5-2600v3 processors the system will only support memory speeds of up to 2133MHz but the speed will default to the slowest performer between CPU and memory module. Each processor supports 12 of the 24 sockets with three DIMMs per channel of either Registered or Load reduced DIMMs. In a two processor configuration up to 1.5 GBs of memory is available using 64GB DIMM modules.
SAS, SATA, nearline SAS SSDs, HDDs and PCIe SSDs are supported. There are several different chassis options to choose from, but for maximum storage, twelve 3.5-inch 8TB Nearline SAS HDDs offer up to 131.6 Terabytes of storage. An optional Hybrid chassis supports 18 1.8-inch front accessible SATA SSDs for fast access, and up to eight 3.5-inch SAS SSDs for high capacity storage and a total capacity of 81TB. Internal dual-SD modules provide hypervisor redundancy for the optional embedded hypervisors using Dell's Failsafe Virtualization technology. Several RAID controllers are available supporting a full the range of RAID options. This system is also compatible with SDS (software Defined Storage) solutions like VMware and vSAN and OpenStack.
Six PCIe 3.0 slots offer a variety of options for external devices including additional GPUs, NICs, HBAs or NAS and DAS solutions.
Management of the system is handled by iDRAC8 with Lifecycle Controller and Dell's OpenManage portfolio of systems management solutions, including the OpenManage Essentials console. The iDRAC controller embedded on the motherboard enables out of band system management even when the system is powered off. Upgrading to iDRAC8 enterprise enables remote access using a browser. An optional Quick Sync bezel lets administrators quickly gather system information on site using a hand held tablet or device outfitted with NFC technology.
Dell's R730xd is a powerhouse suitable for a number of different compute applications. For a 2U chassis this system supports impressive storage and memory. Several different chassis give Administrators options when it comes to maximizing performance or storage. In a nut shell this server is very affordable in a minimal single processor configuration and can quickly scale to meet your changing needs.
