Designed to tackle datacenter sprawl and IT complexity, the PowerEdge M1000e is energy efficient, cost effective and high performing. The M1000e will support upcoming generations of blade technologies regardless of processor or chipset architecture making it an accommodating choice for a variety of IT environments.

Since it takes advantage of thermal design efficiencies like ultra-efficient power supplies, dynamic power efficient fans with optimized airflow design, you’ll be impressed with the performance per watt of the M1000e. And, the power supplies provide higher efficiency even at low levels of utilization because they are based on Dell’s Energy Smart Technologies.

Dell PowerEdge M1000e Product Review 

The Dell PowerEdge m1000e leaves its close rivals at the start for a number of reasons. Although, its management features may not be one of its notable advantage, it does showcase excellent design and build quality and high server density. 

Adding to this, the Dell PowerEdge m1000e is one of the first servers in the market to be embedded with the Xeon 6500 or 7500 server blade way before its competition. HP currently tops the list for worldwide blade server sales, but the Dell PowerEdge m1000e definitely poses some serious rivalry. 

Although Dell’s pedigree of servers lacked pizzazz, the Dell PowerEdge m1000e is an entirely newly innovative beast. 

The Dell PowerEdge m1000e is embedded with one unique feature that makes it distinct from its rivals and that is the introduction of male connectors set on the blades and female on the mid plane, which is an opposite arrangement on HP and IBM products. 

Male connectors on the mid plane are easier to damage, and a blade is easier to replace than a mid plane. The chassis of the Dell PowerEdge m1000e boasts an open design and no dividers, which make it easy to set-up full and half length blades in any order. 

Furthermore, this type of design makes the Dell PowerEdge m1000e compatible with future designs such as the ability to adopt quarter height or even double width blades. The six power modules are located along the base of the Dell PowerEdge m1000e, and this intelligent power supply makes the system energy efficient and use only what’s necessary for it to showcase brilliant performance.
