Manage data overload
Keep pace with the explosion of data in the virtual age with the flexible, powerful I/O and storage capabilities of the R720. Up to 16 internal hard drives and integrated PCIe Gen3-capable expansion slots greatly increase your capacity, while optional hot-plug, front-access PCIe SSDs (up to 4) enable performance-enhancing, in-box storage tiering. Moreover, Dell Select Network Adapters, our flexible NIC technology, let you choose the right network fabric to match your needs without using up a valuable PCIe slot.
Accelerate the solution
Boost the performance of your HPC or VDI environment by combining the PowerEdge R720â€™s memory density with an optional GPU accelerator (some with over 500 cores). Choose from a range of GPU options for greater assisted performance.
Virtualize more with the R720
Maximize your data centerâ€™s application capacity by expanding your virtual environment using the PowerEdge R720â€™s large memory footprint. Choose an industry-leading hypervisor and take advantage of our system management capability to manage both physical and virtual assets. The R720 can help maximize your virtual machinesâ€™ uptime with redundant failsafe hypervisors. Finally, Dellâ€™s Virtual Integrated Systemâ„¢ (VIS) solution lets you enable complex virtualization environments in just a few mouse clicks.
