    Dell EMC Poweredge R740 Rack Server With 1U And 2U

    Dell emc poweredge r740 is a type of dell rack server. Based on the latest dell cyber resilience architecture, security is embedded in each server to protect data in real time.


    Built-in Dell iDRAC9 capabilities for automated management.

    Equipped with ProSupport Plus and SupportAssist to reduce IT workload by at least 72%.

    3 double-width GPUs to scale VDI deployments.


    The PowerEdge R740 was designed to accelerate application performance leveraging accelerator cards and storage scalability. The 2-socket, 2U platform has the optimum balance of resources to power the most demanding environments.


    Expand and optimize application performance


    The scalable business architecture of the R740 can scale up to three 300W or six 150W GPUs, or up to three double-width or four single-width FPGAs. With up to 16 2.5" drives or 8 3.5" drives the R740 provides the versatility to adapt to virtually any application and provides the perfect platform for VDI deployments.

    • Scale your VDI deployments with 3 double-width GPUs, supporting up to 50% more users when compared to R730.

    • Free up storage space using internal M.2 SSDs optimized for boot.

    Scale compute resources with 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and tailor performance based on your unique workload requirements.


    Automate systems management with OpenManage


    The Dell EMC OpenManage™ portfolio helps deliver peak efficiency for PowerEdge servers, delivering intelligent, automated management of routine tasks. Combined with unique agent-free management capabilities, the R740 is simply managed, freeing up time for high profile projects.

    • Simplify management with the New OpenManage Enterprise™ console, with customized reporting and automatic discovery.

    • Take advantage of QuickSync 2 capabilities and gain access to your servers easily through your phone or tablet.


    Rely on PowerEdge with built-in security

    Every PowerEdge server is designed as part of a cyber resilient architecture, integrating security into the full server lifecycle. The R740 leverages new security features built-into every new PowerEdge server strengthening protection so you can reliably and securely deliver accurate data to your customers no matter where they are. By considering each aspect of system security, from design to retirement, Dell EMC ensures trust and delivers a worry-free, secure infrastructure without compromise.

    • Rely on a secure component supply chain to ensure protection from factory to the data center.

    • Maintain data safety with cryptographically signed firmware packages and Secure Boot.

    • Protect your server from malicious malware with iDRAC9 Server Lockdown mode (requires Enterprise or Datacenter license)

    • Wipe all data from storage media including hard drives, SSDs and system memory quickly and securely with System Erase.
