The Dell EMC PowerEdge R540 server is an optimal blend of performance and affordability, allowing it to handle a broad range of tasks with ease. Benefiting from advanced automation tools like iDRAC 9.0 and its one-button tuning and agent-free management, system Administrators have more time to focus on the actual business. The security bezel has an optional LED display for users to check on the system's status without needing to remove it.
The Intel Xeon Scalable processors present an impressive 50% bandwidth increase and 27% more processing cores compared to its predecessor, the E5-2600 v4 processor. Supporting either the first or second generation with up to 20 cores, the R540 server is flexible and ready for a range of workloads depending on what performance and storage capacity is required. There are four different processor models to choose from – Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum.
For memory, the two-processor configuration allows for a maximum of 16 DDR4 memory modules with a maximum of 1TB available using Load Reduced (LRDIMM) memory modules running at speeds up to 2666MT/s with the second-generation Intel Scalable processors. The RDIMM memory modules are limited to a maximum of 512GB.
