More power to you


With up to 16 disks the R730 Server can be equipped with lots of internal storage with the usual choice of SATA or SAS drives in a range of capacities to suit different applications and budgets. An on-board SATA controller is available on all models (the PERC S130), but this only supports software-based RAID 0,1 and 5 and for Windows only, so most buyers will go for one of Dell’s plug-in PERC adapters which will enable them to build faster, more resilient, arrays.

Intel C610 series chipset


The front panel of the dell poweredge r730 drivers is equipped with various useful features and indicators including a Video connector, Information tag, vFlash media card slot, USB connector, and an USB management port/iDRAC Direct. The Power button (and Power-on indicator) and an NMI button are also present, the latter which is used to troubleshoot software and device driver errors when running certain operating systems. This can be pressed using the end of a paper clip. Dell Poweredge Rack730 Server, Located beside it is the System identification button, which is used to locate a particular system within a rack.

The LCD panel of your system provides system information and status and error messages to indicate if the system is operating correctly or if the system needs attention. Three buttons are located to the left of the panel, allowing users to navigate the menu system.

Taking up the majority of the front panel of the R730 are the drive bays, which can be installed in the following configurations: 8 x 2.5″ or 3.5″ bays, or up to 16x 2.5″ bays.

From left to right, the back panel includes System identification button, System identification connector, and an iDRAC8 Enterprise port. Just above are the three Half-height PCIe expansion card slots. The Serial, Video (VGA), and 2x USB connectors are also present while the four Ethernet connectors offer 10/100/1000 Mbps NIC connectivity.

Up to two 1100W power supply units are located on the right side of the R730 to offer redundancy in the event of a hardware failure.

Networking options

Networking is handled by a plug-in card daughter board, ours shipping with the default 4-port Gigabit module, with 10GbE adapters available for those wanting maximum bandwidth. A separate integrated Gigabit port is also available for out of band remote via a Dell iDRAC8 Express controller.

In its basic form this provides remote access via an intuitive web interface with remote console, power capping and other tools available by upgrading to an Enterprise license. The iDRAC controller also equips the server for management from Dell’s OpenManage Server Administrator and other SNMP consoles.


The dell r730 manual has been the performance workhorse of the StorageReview Lab for most of this year. In that time we’ve leveraged it in quite a number of reviews. To showcase what it is capable of, most notably in a VMware clustered environment we turn to our review of the X-IO Technologies ISE 860 G3 where the R730 performed flawlessly with MySQL and SQL Server database workloads and the VMmark virtualization benchmark.

VMmark Performance

Dell R730 VMware VMmark 4-node Cluster Specifications

  • Dell PowerEdge R730 Server (x4)
  • CPUs: Eight Intel Xeon E5-2690 v3 2.6GHz (12C/24T)
  • Memory: 64 x 16GB DDR4 RDIMM
  • Emulex LightPulse LPe16002B 16Gb FC Dual-Port HBA
  • Emulex OneConnect OCe14102-NX 10Gb Ethernet Dual-Port NIC
  • VMware ESXi 6.0

VMmark by its very design is a highly resource intensive benchmark, with a broad mix of VM-based application workloads stressing storage, network and compute activity. When it comes to testing virtualization performance, there is almost no better benchmark for it, since VMmark looks at so many facets, covering storage I/O, CPU, and even network performance in VMware environments.

In our initial look at VMware VMmark performance with the XIO ISE 860, we use the Dell PowerEdge R730 rack 13G 4-node cluster as the driving force behind the workload. With eight Intel E5-2690 v3 Haswell CPUs, this cluster offers 249.6GHz of CPU resources for the applications running as a part of each VMmark tile. Generally we’ve seen a requirement of about 10GHz per tile, meaning this cluster under optimal conditions should be capable of running between 24-26 tiles. Beyond that adding additional servers into the cluster or switching to a higher-tier processor such as the E5-2697 v3 or E5-2699 v3 would be necessary. That is another way of saying that when this cluster gets topped out, dell poweredge r730 server the storage will most likely still have some headroom available to go higher.
