The 13th generation of Dell PowerEdge servers brings you powerful server solutions to accelerate workloads, automate management and simplify deployment. In our most advanced lineup of rack, tower and shared infrastructure platforms to date, you get peak performance, versatile configurations, zero-touch deployment and intelligent management embedded in every server.

Next-generation PowerEdge servers deliver more performance, more density, and more intelligent options, like:

  • An optimal mix of flash and high-capacity local drives for virtual storage solutions
  • Double the storage throughput for dramatically faster access
  • A range of IO and RAID choices so you can fine-tune application performance

This page serves as an in depth technical resource and aggregation point for technologies relevant to the Dell PowerEdge 13th Generation of servers.

Our next-generation PowerEdge servers combine state-of-the-art industry advances in processing and memory technology with customer-inspired Dell innovations that optimize for choice and flexibility at any scale. The first of these servers include: 

  • PowerEdge R730xd: This 2-socket, 2U rack server is designed for the scale-out storage efficiency. New flash-capable configurations mean fast data access for faster applications performance. Configurations include 1.8" SATA SSDs, 12Gb SAS SSDs and ultra-high-performance NVMe Express Flash PCIe drives that enable optional Dell Fluid Cache application-acceleration technology.

  • PowerEdge R730: This 2-socket, 2U high performance rack server, with the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v3 product family and up to 24 DIMMs of DDR4 RAM, has the processing cycles and threads and large memory footprint necessary to deliver more, larger and higher-performing virtual machines for data centers and cloud platforms.

  • PowerEdge R630: This 2-socket, 1U rack server has a large memory footprint and superior IO performance, as well as storage flexibility of up to 24 x 1.8" flash SSDs or 10 x 2.5" HDDs (with an option to replace four HDDs with four PCIe SSDs) providing an ideal solution for large-scale transactional and analytical processing solutions, such as Oracle and SQL.

  • PowerEdge T630: Drive rapid response times with the latest Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v3 product family, DDR4 memory and seven I/O slots in this powerful and flexible 2-socket tower server, supporting up to 32 x 2.5" or 18 x 3.5" hard drives.
