The Dell PowerEdge M1000e Modular Blade Enclosure is a breakthrough in enterprise server architecture. Built from the ground up to combat datacenter sprawl and IT complexity, the M1000e delivers one of the most energy efficient, flexible, and manageable blade server product on the market. Flexible and scalable, the M1000e is designed to support future generations of blade technologies regardless of processor/chipset architecture. The M1000e is optimized for use with Dell’s M600 and M605 blade servers.
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 increasing demands for I/O consumption. Plus, Dell’s FlexIO modular switch technology lets you easily scale to provide additional uplink and stacking functionality – no need to waste your current investment with a “rip and replace” upgrade. Flexibility and scalability to maximize TCO.
Form Factor: 10U modular enclosure holds up to sixteen half-height blade servers. 3 (non-redundant) or 6 (redundant) 2360 watt hot plug power supplies. M1000e Chassis comes standard with 9 hot pluggable, redundant fan modules. Up to six total I/O modules for three redundant fabrics, featuring Ethernet FlexIO Switches providing on demand stacking and uplink scalability.
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 organization.
- Centralized management controllers provide redundant, secure access paths for IT administrators to manage multiple enclosures and blades from a single console making the M1000e one of the easiest blade solutions to manage.
- Dynamic power management provides the capability to set high/low power thresholds to help ensure blades operate within your power envelope.
- Real time reporting for enclosure and blade power consumption, and the ability to prioritize blade slots for power provide optimal control over power resources.
- One of the only blade solutions with an integrated KVM switch, enabling easy set up and deployment, and seamless integration into an existing KVM infrastructure.
Energy Efficiency That Can’t Be Beat
The M1000e is the most power efficient blade solution on the market, built on Dell’s energy smart technology. The M1000e can help customers to increase capacity, lower operating costs, and delivers better performance/watt than leading blade competitors. The M1000e enclosure takes advantage of thermal design efficiencies, such as ultra-efficient power supplies, dynamic power efficient fans with optimized airflow design to efficiently cool the chassis and enable better performance in a lower power envelope. Energy efficiency and performance/watt that HP and IBM can’t beat.
The PowerEdge M600 blade server performs up to 12% better, consumes up to 19% less power, and delivers up to 25% better performance/watt than the HP BladeSystem c-Class and IBM BladeCenter H, which can help customers to increase capacity and lower operating costs.
