Dell PowerEdge R715
Balanced for consolidation, virtualization, database, and general business applications, the Dell™ PowerEdge™ R715 server offers great price for performance with up to 32 processor cores and 16 DIMM slots.

Outstanding performance, lasting value
The PowerEdge R715 features AMD Opteron™ processor technology, designed to handle your most demanding workloads with superior stability, efficiency and long-term value.

Dell aims to bring value to your business by including the features and technology you need for your specific IT environment. Our goal is to deliver performance-driven, intelligent platforms based on industry standards and purposeful, innovative design.

Superior reliability inspired by you
We’ve designed the PowerEdge R715 for optimal reliability and ease of use, incorporating customer-inspired features that range from robust metal hard-drive carriers and industrial-quality materials to embedded diagnostics and an interactive LCD screen. The PowerEdge R715 also includes an internal dual SD module to provide failover at the hypervisor level.

Technology and design that goes the distance
You’ve told us you need a server manufacturer that inspires confidence through its reliability, availability and quality of products. With this in mind, we’ve set a simple reliability goal: deliver quality products that stand the test of time

To help meet your needs in the data center and beyond, we’re dedicated to improving server reliability processes by:

  • Utilizing robust, durable industrial materials to enable longer product life cycles
  • Introducing a Unified Server Configurator (USC), which helps to minimize downtime by offering embedded and persistent diagnostics with no media required
  • Improving redundancy generation over generation with features such as an internal dual SD module that provide failover at the hypervisor level
  • Implementing a “one-touch” quality-control process to ensure that one person is responsible for the entire server build
  • Ensuring that every fully configured Dell server is tested—and re-tested—before it leaves the factory

Efficient for your environment
PowerEdge servers drive energy efficiency as a design standard without compromising the performance you need to meet cost and environmental goals. Built with Energy Smart technologies, Dell servers can better help manage power in your specific environment.

The PowerEdge R715 features highly efficient fans that help to conserve energy by spinning in accordance with server workload demands. In addition, the internal shrouding and logical layout of internal components aid with airflow direction, helping to cool the server.

The PowerEdge R715 also includes power-management features such as programmable voltage regulators, power regulating processors and an interactive LCD screen for easy access to power-consumption information.

Intelligent, connected systems management
Part of the Dell OpenManage™ systems management portfolio, the Lifecycle Controller, is the engine for advanced embedded management and is delivered as part of the iDRAC6 Express or optional iDRAC6 Enterprise in the PowerEdge R715. The Lifecycle Controller is an integrated chip accessed through the Unified Server Configurator. Using the USC, administrators can simplify tasks by performing a complete set of provisioning functions such as system deployment, system updates, hardware configuration and diagnostics in the pre-OS environment. The PowerEdge R715 also features an interactive LCD screen positioned on the front of the server for ease of monitoring.

Also part of the OpenManage systems management portfolio is the Dell Management Console, included with every Dell server, which provides IT managers with a consolidated view of their entire IT infrastructure.

Dell Services
Dell Services can help reduce IT complexity, lower costs, and eliminate inefficiencies by making IT and business solutions work harder for you. The Dell Services team takes a holistic view of your needs and designs solutions for your environment and business objectives while leveraging proven delivery methods, local talent, and in-depth domain knowledge for the lowest TCO.
