Dell PowerEdge™ 830

Novell Technology Partner

product details

New Dual Core technology:

Dual Core technology combines two processing units into a single processor chip. This is designed to increase performance and power efficiency compared to single core processors, especially when running multiple applications on a single server like:
  • Messaging applications
  • Shared Internet access and web serving
  • Productivity and Back-Office applications
Multiple processor options based on business needs:
  • Pentium® D - New Dual Core technology for best performance running multiple applications or compute-intensive multi-threaded single applications
  • Pentium® 4 - Value, price/performance, single application
  • Celeron® D - Entry-level, price sensitive, simple file/print
Expansive memory configurations help improve system performance:
  • The PowerEdge 830 comes with up to twice the memory of the previous server product series
  • Up to 8GB of DDR-2 SDRAM memory helps improve system performance with more bandwidth
Scalability and headroom for future demands through next generation technologies:
  • Optional RAID 0,1, 5 SATA or SCSI controller cards take full advantage of high performing, reliable storage configurations.
  • Optional hot-plug SCSI drives are designed to provide uninterrupted usage in the case of a drive failure.
  • EasyExchange™ SCSI Hard Drives provide exceptional convenience for service replacement or for specific applications involving just the exchange of a drive, such as occurs with the update of a pricing database in a POS environment.
  • High capacity Tape Backup and external storage solutions for increased data availability. Can support either IDE or SCSI internal tape back-up units, external tape, and direct attach storage solutions.
Comprehensive management tools help reduce hands-on maintenance and overall cost of ownership:
  • Dell Server Assistant ships with every Dell PowerEdge Server as a bootable, stand-alone CD-ROM providing the tools to setup and configure the PowerEdge system components and software.
  • For advanced remote management, Dell Remote Access Card enables users to remotely access, monitor, troubleshoot, and repair/upgrade servers independent of the system status.
  • For basic remote monitoring, Dell's IPMI 1.5 standard Integrated Baseboard Management Controller allows remote management when integrated with any industry standard management program.
  • Tool-less chassis access and common components with higher end PowerEdge Servers provide consistency for IT resources and help reduce maintenance and installation time.
