5 / 5 stars Editor's Choice - Hardware improvements, rich storage options, and plenty of room for expansion add up to a very fast, flexible 2U workhorse
Review date: September 9, 2014 | Model: Dell PowerEdge R730xd
Dell has hit a long home run with the PowerEdge R730xd, covering a wide range of use cases and delivering a powerful 2U server with lots of room to grow. With 192GB of memory (rounding out a nice configuration for a virtual machine host), the pricing of my review unit would be close to $19,000 -- an excellent deal. Starting price for a minimally configured system comes in at $2,579. You can start small and grow large without breaking the bank. Ultimately, the new Dell PowerEdge R730xd has everything you would want in a workhorse server -- and then some.Reviewed by: Paul Ferrill | Read full review...
