The PowerEdge R640 is the ideal dual-socket, 1U platform for dense scale-out data centre computing. Combining density, performance and scalability to optimise application performance and data centre density.

The scalable business architecture of the R640 is designed to maximise application performance and provide the flexibility to optimise configurations based on the application and use case. You can create an NVMe cache pool and use either 2.5” or 3.5” drives for data storage. Combined with up to 24 DIMM’s, 12 of which can be NVDIMM’s, you have the resources to create the optimum configuration to maximise application performance with the optimum configuration in only a 1U chassis.

Every PowerEdge server is designed as part of a cyber resilient architecture, integrating security into the full server life cycle. The R640 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 without compromise
