With five form-factors across blade, rack and tower servers, this next-gen lineup from Dell gives IT professionals more choice in how to address industry trends including cloud computing, mobility, big data and software. The first wave of 13G PowerEdge servers includes the PowerEdge R730xd, R730, and R630 rack servers; the M630 blade server; and the T630 tower server, all built with the latest Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v3 product family.

With up to 18 cores per socket, 45 MB of last-level cache (LLC) and next generation DDR4 memory support, the Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 v3 product family delivers significant performance improvements in workloads across all industries, from small businesses to large corporations in enterprise and technical computing, communications, storage, and private clouds.

Increase agility and efficiency

The Intel Xeon processor E5 family delivers the best combination of performance, built-in capabilities, and cost-effectiveness to address technical computing challenges, enable cloud deployments, accelerate processor performance for peak loads, deliver intelligent storage or power data analytics. In comparison to previous generation processors you get:

  • Up to 3x more performance
  • Up to 1.9x more performance with Intel® AVX2
  • Up to 1.7x increased virtual machine density
  • Up to 1.4x increased memory bandwidth with DDR4
  • Advanced energy management technology


Ensure continuous access

PowerEdge 13G servers can be easily configured as a reliable, general-purpose server for business-critical applications, with automated management and high-availability features, such as redundant power supply units (PSUs); hot-plug and swappable PSUs, HDDs and fans; and a Dual SD card option for failsafe hypervisors.

Simplify and automate IT management tasks

Manage your data center servers the way you want: individually, collectively, in-person, remotely, or with your smartphone – it’s your choice. Consistent administration and 3rd-party integration ensures seamless management of PowerEdge servers.

  • Simplify administration of PowerEdge servers with the embedded intelligence of the integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller and with the robust, timesaving management features of the entire Dell OpenManage portfolio.
  • Agent-free management from iDRAC8 with Lifecycle Controller offers real-time monitoring for the server and internal storage devices. It also monitors server health, multiple internal parameters and system performance without requiring agents to be installed in the server operating system — agents which could require additional upkeep and consume valuable CPU time.
  • Zero-touch automated deployment discovers and auto-configures Dell servers by using configuration files stored in designated locations on an internal network, which can reduce setup time and manual entry errors. Administrators can simply rack, cable and walk away.
  • The Tech Support Report, automatically maintained by iDRAC, is a continuously updated health and status report that monitors over 5,000 key system parameters and can help cut time needed to identify and resolve server issues.


Accelerate IT service deployment

Streamline infrastructure provisioning, speed up workload deployment and simplify IT service delivery through the unified console and highly intuitive user interface of Active System Manager.
