The Dell PowerEdge M1000e Modular Blade Enclosure is a breakthrough in enterprise server architecture. Built from the ground up to combat data centre sprawl and IT complexity, the M1000e delivers one of the most energy efficient, flexible, and manageable blade server products on the market.

Leading Energy Efficiency

The M1000e enclosure takes advantage of its world-class design by coupling optimised airflow with ultra-efficient power supplies and fans to effectively cool the chasis within a lower power envelope.

Effortless Scalability

Only Dell provides complete, scale-on-demand switch designs. With additional I/O slots and switch options, you have the flexibility you need to meet ever-increasing demands for I/O consumption. Plus, Dell's FlexIO modular switch technology letts you easily scale to provide additional uplink and stacking functionality - no need to waste your current investment with a "rip and replace" upgrade.

Easy-to-Use, Powerful Management Tools

The M1000e helps reduce the cost and complexity of managing computing resources so you can focus on growing your business or managing your organisation with features such as:

  • Centralised Chassis Management Controller (CMC) modules for redundant, secure access paths for IT administrators to manage multiple enclosures and blades from a single interface.
  • Dynamic and granular power management so you have the capability to set power thresholds to help ensure your blades operate within your specific power envelope.
  • Real-time reporting for enclosure and blade power consumption, as well as the ability to prioritise blade slots for power, providing you with optimal control over power resources.

FlexAddress Technology: The Simple, Low-Cost Way to Limit Downtime

Dell's patent-pending FlexAddress technology allows any M-Series blade enclosure to assign the World Wide Name (WWN) or Media Access Control (MAC) address of Fibre Channel, Ethernet and iSCSI controllers to an M1000e blade slot instead of directly to the blade. By removing the networking and storage identity from the server hardware, customers are now able to upgrade and replace components or the entire blade server without being forced to change the identity on the network or rezoning switches. Unlike other solutions, which often require separate management interfaces and propietary hardware, directly from the integrated Chassis Management Controller by simply selecting the chassis slots and fabrics which you want to enable. FlexAddress delivers persistent network and storage identities, equipping your data centre to handle predictable or even unplanned changes - add, upgrade, or remove servers without affecting your networks.

  • OpenManage Server Administration - monitoring agents and one-to-one management utilities
  • Integration with 3rd party management solutions through Dell's Certified Partner Program
  • Remote Management
Fan Configuration 9 hot-pluggable, redundant fan modules
Power Supply Configuration

3 non-redundant or 6 redundant 2360 watt hot-plug supplies:

  • Based on Dell Energy Smart Technologies, the M1000e power supplies deliver greater levels of efficiency (>91%), even at low levels of utilisation
  • Redundant power supplies support 3+3 (AC redundancy), 3+1 (power supply redundancy), or 3+0 (non-redundant) modes
  • System supports new Dynamic Power Supply Engagement functionality, which (if enabled) puts lightly loaded power supplies into standby mode, driving up the utilisation and thus the efficiency on the active supplies
  • Power supplies require 200+ volt AC input; Dell offers a wide range of Power Distribution options for the M1000e with 20A, 30A, 60A single-phase, or 30A three-phase options
