Dell PowerEdge R760: Deep Technical Overview

If you are a fan of Dell PowerEdge servers, you have to take a look at the R760. It's both a beauty and a beast, serving as the 2U counterpart to the 1U PowerEdge R660. This 16th-generation, 2U rackmount server supports two 4th-generation Intel Xeon processors, with up to 56 cores and 128 threads per CPU. It also accommodates up to 8TB of RAM via 32 DIMM slots.

 

Designed for mixed workloads, databases, and VDI, the server can house up to 24 NVMe drives. Additionally, it supports platforms that are compatible with the new EDSFF E3.S SSDs. Notably, these E3.S SSDs are the only Gen5 form factors supported by this Dell server, as the U.2 slots are limited to Gen4.
