The Dell PowerEdge M830 is a full-height four-socket blade server designed for the M1000e blade enclosure or VRTX converged infrastructure. The M1000 enclosure can support up to eight full-height nodes while the VRTX enclosure will support two.
Dell's PowerEdge M830 is a full-height blade server that supports up to 48 DIMMS of DDR4 memory when powered by a maximum of four Xeon processors. It's designed for compute-intensive workloads, highly virtualized environments, and mission-critical database applications.
Using Intel's Xeon E5-4600 v4 processors, the M830 server supports 83% more processing cores than the previous generation M820. Xeon E5-4600 v3 processors are also supported but offer less cores than the v4 processors. Administrators can start out with just two processors or load all CPU sockets with a maximum of four processors.
In a four processor configuration the M830 blade server will support 48 DIMMs, total, of DDR4 memory offering a 28% gain in performance over DDR3 memory modules. Each processor on the M830 blade supports 12 memory modules. With just two processors, this server will support 24 DIMMs and easily scale to support more memory by adding additional processors. A maximum of 3TB of memory is available with four processors running 64GB memory modules running at transfer speeds of up to 2400MT/s. Of course transfer speeds are dependent on the choice of CPU and memory configuration.
Data-intensive workloads are no match for the Dell M830. Storage options include 12 x 1.8-inch SSDs or up 4 x 2.5-inch HDDs, and an option supporting 2 x 2.5-inch SSD or HDD with 2 x 2.5-inch PCIe SSDs. Supported drive types include SAS and SATA SSDs and HDDs. HD storage is handled by the integrated S130 software RAID controller or your choice of optional PERC RAID controllers featuring the full range of RAID options. An optional internal Dual SD Module offers redundant hypervisor supporting a mirrored configuration with two cards or it can be used with a single card without redundancy.
The server blade is housed in either the Dell M1000 enclosure or the VRTX shared infrastructure platform. Cooling, networking, and power are handled at the enclosure level. The system features 2 x PCIe 3.0 slots for expansion cards. With I/O intensive workloads, the system can support up to 24 10GbE ports connected to three redundant low-latency fabrics. Integrated video is provided by a Matrox G200 supported on the iDRAC8 module, sharing 12MB application memory.
Dell's Chassis Management Controller (CMC) allows Administrators to manage blades individually or collectively, in more than one chassis and more than one location on your network. Agent-free management is provided by iDRAC8 which resides on the system board of the M830 blade server and provides real-time management of the system and internal storage devices. OpenManage with Lifestyle Controller helps Administrators deploy, update, and support automation on demand, improving efficiency and automatically updating inventory.
Blade systems offer flexibility, reliability, and efficiency with a smaller hardware footprint and a lower total cost of ownership with shared power, cooling, and management features. The M830 blade server is designed to meet growing IT demands with a scalable architecture and rapid access to additional storage in the form of network attached storage (NAS) or a storage area network (SAN). This server is a great addition to your M1000e enclosure or shared infrastructure VRTX offering generous memory and storage with four-processor performance. This is an ideal platform for extreme virtualization and database applications that require low-latency and high-throughput.
