Server product description Dell PowerEdge M420 CTO Blade

The quarter-height Dell PowerEdge M420 Blade server offers unprecedented computing density, allowing up to 32 individually maintained blade servers per chassis, without compromising enterprise-class resources.

Dell PowerEdge M420 Blade

  • Ultradense blade with a quarter height
  • Can be repaired individually
  • Hot-plug solid state drives and hardware RAID
  • Impressive systems management features
  • Take advantage of the M1000e case

Enjoy remarkable computational density with the Dell PowerEdge M420 Blade, capable of deploying 32 server nodes in just 10U of rack space. With a scale of up to 16 processor cores and 192 GB of RAM, each M420 combines processing power and memory capacity with tremendous I / O throughput, with up to four 10 Gb Ethernet ports available in an exceptionally compact format with individual maintenance capacity. From mid-tier and entry-level business applications to virtual environments with large numbers of nodes and even distributed workloads, such as cloud or high-performance computing (HPC) environments, the M420 offers advantages for virtually any data center where a large number of computational nodes needs to be deployed in a minimum space.

Ensure business continuity

Dell's uncompromising approach to enterprise-class features on our M-series blade servers is not limited by the M420's ultra-dense shape. The fully redundant, individually maintained M420 platform offers features such as hardware RAID and hot-pluggable dual solid state drives to ensure maximum uptime. Dell's unique fail-safe virtualization technology even extends the M420's redundancy and resilience to virtual environments, offering a redundant infrastructure with failover capability for embedded hypervisors.




Improve operational efficiency

Help manage your servers using the Dell OpenManage portfolio, including Dell's exclusive Dell integrated access controller (iDRAC) with lifecycle controller. iDRAC, an embedded systems management feature, allows Dell servers to be managed in physical, virtual, local and remote environments, in or out of band and with or without a systems management software agent. OpenManage also integrates and connects to the main third-party systems management solutions you already use, allowing you to maintain a single point of control and capitalize on your existing investment. OpenManage simplifies the life cycle of deploying, updating, monitoring and maintaining your PowerEdge servers.


Line of PowerEdge M series blade servers

Implement the right combination of features and performance scalability with PowerEdge M-series blade servers, which can handle tough workloads in data centers of any size. In addition to the world-class management features provided on all PowerEdge servers, the M420 also leverages the capabilities of the M1000e chassis management controller (CMC). CMC allows M-series blades to be managed individually or as groups, in one or more chassis and within a data center or in various geographically dispersed locations around the world without the need for a single agent or additional hardware. In addition to the existing network infrastructure, the new Dell Force10 MXL 10Gb switch offers state-of-the-art port density and bandwidth for exceptional throughput.
