Manage data overload and expanding virtual environments in midsized and large enterprises with extreme processing power and massive memory density of the PowerEdge R830 rack server. A compute-intensive performance platform with highly scalable memory (up to 3TB) and impressive I/O capabilities, the R830 offers the Intel Xeon processor E5-4600v4 product family, with up to 22 cores per processor, to readily handle demanding workloads, like enterprise resource planning (ERP), data warehousing, e-commerce, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), databases and data node high-performance computing (HPC).


Versatility makes the R830 an ideal platform for a variety of compute-intensive, memory-bound or I/O-centric workloads. Whether it's Oracle RAC or Microsoft SQL, available resources can be fine-tuned to maximise application performance and boost CPU utilisation with support for NVMe PCIe add-in cards. The R830 also delivers superior resources for dense virtualisation environments with redundant embdedded hypervisors that ensure uptime for fail-safe virtualisation deployments.

Scalable, balanced performance

With up to 16 x 2.5-inch SSDs or HDDs and up to 3TB of DDR4 memory, the R830 seamlessly scales to optimise workloads and maximise the CPU, making it an ideal foundation for scale-out four-socket workloads and dense virtualisation deployments.

Innovative management with intelligent automation

PowerEdge servers let you construct and manage highly efficient infrastructures for data centres and small businesses. Accelerate time-to-production with automated deployment processes that use fewer manual steps and reduce human error. Improve IT productivity in the data centre with innovative at-the-server management tools, like iDRAC QuickSync and iDRAC Direct to deliver in-depth system health status and speed deployment. Optimise data centre energy usage with improved performance-per-watt and more granular control of power and cooling.

The Dell OpenManage portfolio simplifies and automates server life cycle management tasks by leveraging the incomparable agent-free capabilities of the embedded Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller. With this technology, server deployment, configuration and updates are steamlined across the OpenManage portfolio and through integration with third-party management solutions. Monitoring and control of Dell EMC and third-party data centre hardware is provided by OpenManage Essentials, and with anytime, anywhere mobile access through OpenManage Mobile. OpenManage Essentials now also delivers Server Configuration Management capabilities that automate one-to-many bare-metal server and OS deployment, providing quick and consistent replication of configurations and ensuring compliance to a predefined baseline configuration with automated drift detection.
