PowerEdge R740xd

Highlights

  • Uncompromising storage performance and data set processing in a 2U/2S form factor
  • Highly optimized air flow design which enables tremendous configuration flexibility and industry leading energy efficiency
  • Optimized for SDS with flexible configurations based on your specific storage, compute and I/O requirements
  • Out of band management architecture facilitating rapid bare metal deployment and remediation regardless of OS state
  • Embedded SupportAssist reducing troubleshooting and downtime with embedded diagnostics and automated case creation

Automate Productivity

  • Get up to 4x performance improvement with common management tasks with iDRAC9’s new dual-core ARM processor (compared with iDRAC8)
  • Use the same next-generation of embedded automation to standardize BIOS and secure boot configuration, firmware updates, server asset inventory, health monitoring, and power/reset control across all PowerEdge servers
  • Proactive automated support embedded resolves issues up to 90% faster

Comprehensive Security

  • Fully signed firmware updates; embedded trust only allows authenticated code to run
  • Security lockdown that protects your server configuration and firmware (BIOS, iDRAC, & RAID) from malicious changes
  • Secure instant erase for HDDs, SSDs, NVMs
  • New, more secure unique default password
  • Redfish, new REST-based management API, is more secure and scalable than legacy IPMI

Software

VxFlex OS differentiation includes Automated Management Services for monitoring, automated provisioning and lifecycle management. For customers deploying hyper‑converged Dell EMC VxFlex Ready Nodes with VMware ESXI, hyper‑converged RHEL or RHEL storage-only, Automated Management Services can automatically discover the hardware and configure the network. It also enables administrators to create entities such as compute clusters, virtual machines, data stores and application networks from a single management console.

Automated Management Services help simplify the lifecycle management of Dell EMC VxFlex Ready Nodes by selecting components, then identifying and applying the required operating system patches and firmware upgrades. The end‑to‑end monitoring and management means data centers can experience greater operational efficiency while reducing risks and administration overhead associated with manual configuration tasks.
