The Dell Precision R7610 Rack Workstation comes in a 2U form factor and offers performance, ISV certification, and support for professional graphics cards just like the tower version. A rack workstation also provides higher levels of security for your data and a central location to manage the hardware.

Why would you want a rack workstation instead of a tower workstation? A rack workstation offers greater levels of security for local and remote users. In addition, the server room is also usually one of the more secure spaces in any office, typically under lock and key. A rack workstation can be used locally but can also be accessed remotely from any location with one to one access or virtualized for one to many environments. As a rack system, IT Administrators have more control over the system. With a rack workstation, you get the performance of a tower workstation with a bunch more options for deployment, usage, and security. Creating multiple VMs also allows for the use of different operating systems and applications on each virtual machine.
The Dell R7610 is ISV certified to perform effortlessly running intensive software applications used by design engineers, financial analysts, and geologists. ISV is an acronym for Independent Software Vendor and means these independent software vendors have tested the software, hardware, and components to ensure stable and reliable performance. The new Dell workstations are also optimized for the creation of VR content.
Dell’s 7610 rack workstation features the Intel C602J chipset to support dual Xeon E5-2600 processors with up to eight cores. With two processors, up to 512GB of ECC memory modules can be installed. Users can start out with just a single processor and add a second processor as work needs change.
The R7610 supports up to six 2.5-inch SATA or SAS drives and one 350MB PCIe SSDs. 3.5-inch drives are not supported on this system. An integrated 6GB/s SATA/SAS storage controller that supports RAID 0, 1, and 10. An optional LSI 9271-8i provides RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 with a 1GB onboard cache.
Quad-channel memory supports up to 512GB with two CPUs using 32GB memory modules. There are 16 DIMM slots total, with 8 slots allocated to each CPU. Memory speeds of up to 1600MHz are supported but must be paired with an appropriate Xeon E5 processor. Speed of processing defaults to the slowest performer between the memory modules and CPUs.
The R7610 supports up to five full-length, full height PCie slots in a two processor configuration using optional expansion risers. Up to four single-width graphics cards can be installed on the system. Clearly there are options for additional performance and connectivity, including an optional Tera2 dual display PCoIP PCIe remote access host card for optional Wyse P25 zero client which provides a highly responsive remote workstations experience. Several graphics cards including Nvidia Quadro and AMD FirePro cards can be installed. The system also supports an Nvidia Tesla K20C graphics coprocessor. Powering all of this hardware is one, or two redundant hot-pluggable 1100W or 1400W 90% efficient 80PLUS PSUs.
The system supports Windows 7, 8.1, and 10, in addition to, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Ubuntu. For virtualized Citrix environments, the system offers one to one, and one to many connectivity using a GPU passthrough with a certified hypervisor. Dell’s Precision Optimizer takes the guesswork out of customizing the settings for specific supported programs and helps auto tune application setting to maximize performance. The system also supports several security features including a Trusted Platform module (TPM), intrusion sensor and data protection, advanced authentication, and malware protection.
There are advantages to purchasing a rack workstation over a tower workstation and it really depends on your work style and needs. The R7610 offers the same performance as the tower version but many ways the rack system offers more flexibility with the ability to create VMs, and improved security for your data. Like the tower version, users can start out with just one processor and scale to two processors as work needs change, or to support additional VMs. Offering Dell’s tool-less access to components also makes switching out or upgrading components a breeze.
