Maximize performance and capacity
The scalable system architecture behind the R740xd with up to 24 NVMe drives creates the ideal balance between
scalability and performance. The R740xd versatility is highlighted with the ability to mix any drive type to create the
optimum configuration of NVMe, SSD and HDD for either performance, capacity or both. The R740xd is the platform of
choice for software defined storage and is the foundation for ScaleIO, VSAN or the PowerEdge XC.
• Maximize storage performance with up to 24 NVMe drives and ensure application performance scales to meet
• Free up storage space using internal M.2 SSDs optimized for boot.
• Simplify and accelerate ScaleIO or VMware vSAN™ deployments with validated, pre-bundled and tailored Ready
• Accelerate workloads with up to 3 double-width 300W GPUs, up to 6 single-width 150W GPUs or up to 4 FPGAs.
Automate systems management with OpenManage
Dell EMC PowerEdge servers with OpenManage™ technology work at peak efficiency for PowerEdge servers, delivering
intelligent, automated management of routine tasks. Combined with unique agent-free management capabilities, the
R740xd is simply managed, freeing up time for high profile projects.
• Simplify management with the New OpenManage Enterprise console, with customized reporting and automatic
• Take advantage of QuickSync 2 capabilities and gain access to your servers easily through your phone or tablet.
Ensure server security from factory to you
Every PowerEdge server is designed as part of a cyber resilient architecture, integrating security into the full server life
cycle. The R740xd 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
• 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
• Prevent unauthorized or malicious change with Server Lockdown.
• Wipe all data from storage media including hard drives, SSDs and system
memory quickly and securely with System Erase.
The PowerEdge R740xd delivers a perfect balance between
storage scalability and performance. The 2U two-socket
platform is ideal for software defined storage, service providers
or as virtual desktop infrastructure.
