DELL POWER EDGE T630 Tower (5U rackable) Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2630 v3 (2) Intel C610 16+16= 32GB DDR4
In recent years we've grown used to servers coming in slim rack-mount casings, but there's still a market for free-standing tower configurations, particularly in the small to medium-sized business space. This is exactly the market addressed by Dell's PowerEdge T630, which offers dual Xeon E5-2600 v3 (Haswell) processors that deliver massive multi-core capabilities, supported by up to 768GB of DDR-4 memory. The T630 also offers bucket-loads of storage space and all the usual management and high availability features for which the PowerEdge brand is renowned.
MORE FOR LESS
Built to the usual Dell standards, the PowerEdge T630 is effectively an upgrade to the T620 model. That means the same floor-standing chassis as before which, contrary to what you might imagine from the photos on Dell's website, is remarkably compact -- especially when you consider what it can hold. Imagine an upright 5U server (rails are available for rack-mounting as an option if preferred).
Redundant power comes as standard, the review system shipping with 750W hot-swap power supplies, although lower- and higher-rated supplies (up to 1600W) are available to suit the configuration ordered. An 1110W DC power supply is yet another option. Moreover, one of the features of both the new Xeon E5-2600 v3 processors and DDR-4 RAM is the ability to deliver a deal more computing muscle for a lot less energy: in our tests, the PowerEdge T620 never consumed more than 400W no matter how hard we pushed it.
One downside of this type of server is the need to decide on the type and eventual number of disks you might need when ordering, as switching configuration later is far from easy. Our review unit was kitted out to take the maximum number of 32 2.5-inch disks, although only half the bays were filled -- in our case with sixteen 300GB 10K SAS disks.
For those with more modest requirements, a 16-bay chassis is available; if you prefer 3.5-inch drives, the options are 8-bay and 16- bay setups. Prices, naturally, reflect the number of bays you go for. If you only reserve half the available area for disks, the other half can be fitted with a 'flex bay' that can take up to four PCI-e SSDs (assuming you can afford them) or yet more disks, including ordinary SSDs, just to make it even more complicated.
