Hardware for virtualization
Dell PowerEdge R710
The Dell PowerEdge R710 is the replacement for the popular Dell 2950 server, which is many data centers' current workhorse. With the R710, hypervisors can be embedded so that the server can be used as soon as it's powered on. The R710 also features theIntel VT FlexMigration technology that allows a server to more easily participate in VMware Distributed Resource Scheduler clusters and bring compatibility with other servers when attempting to VMotion (or live-migrate) a running VM. Finally, the R710 won in a number of independent performance studies that compared Dell's hardware with the competition.
