  Operating Systems

Virtualization Options:
Citrix®  XenServerTM 
Microsoft®  Hyper-VTM through Microsoft®  Windows Server®  2008

  Chassis Enclosure
Form Factor: 10U modular enclosure holds up to sixteen half-height blade servers
44.0cm (17.3”) H x 44.7cm (17.6”) W x 75.4cm (29.7”) D
Empty Chassis only – 98lbs (44.5kg)
Chassis w/ all rear modules (IOMs, PSUs, CMCs, KVM) - 176lbs (79.8kg)
Max Fully loaded w/ blades and rear modules - 394lbs (178.7kg)

  Power Supplies
Up to six 2700W hot-plug power supplies

Based on Dell’s Energy Smart technologies, the M1000e power supplies deliver greater levels of efficiency, even at low levels of utilization.

Supported power supply configurations include:
3+3 and 2+2 (AC redundancy)
3+1, 4+2, and 5+1 (power supply redundancy)
2+0 and 3+0 (non-redundant mode)

The M1000e chassis supports new Dynamic Power Supply Engagement functionality, which (if enabled) puts lightly loaded power supplies into standby mode, driving up the utilization and the efficiency of the active supplies.

Dell supports either 110–120V or 208–240V AC power supply input and supports a wide range of power distribution options. Dell recommends 208–240V AC for all production environments.
  Uninterruptible Power supplies
2700W-5600W High Efficiency Online
Extended Battery Module (EBM)
Network Management Card

  Cooling Fans
M1000e Chassis comes standard with 9 hot pluggable, redundant fan modules

Based on Energy Smart Technologies, M1000e fans are a breakthrough in power and cooling efficiency.
The fans deliver low power consumption, but also use next generation “low flow” technology to ensure the
lowest possible amount of fresh air is consumed to cool the enclosure

  Input Device
Front Control Panel with interactive Graphical LCD

Supports initial configuration wizard
Local server blade, enclosure, and module information and troubleshooting

Two USB Keyboard/Mouse connections and one Video connection (requires the optional Avocent iKVM switch
to enable these ports) for local front “crash cart” console connections that can be switched between blades
