Product Details

Liberate IT resources to achieve optimal utilization, productivity and efficiency

As dynamic and innovative as your business, PowerEdge MX kinetic infrastructure bridges traditional and software-defined data centers with unequal flexibility and agility. At the foundation, PowerEdge MX7000 chassis hosts disaggregated blocks of server and storage to create consumable resources on-demand. Shared power, cooling, networking, I/O and in-chassis management provides outstanding efficiencies.

  • 7U modular enclosure with eight slots holds 2S single or four 4S double-width compute sleds and 12Gbs single-width storage sleds
  • 25Gb Ethernet, 12Gb SAS and 32Gb Fibre Channel I/O options
  • Three I/O networking fabrics, two general purpose and one storage specific, each with redundant modules
  • Multi-chassis networking up to 10 chassis
  • Single management point for compute, storage and networking
  • High-speed technology connections, now and into the future, with no midplane upgrade
  • At least three server processor microarchitecture generation support assurance

Dynamically scale and respond with kinetic infrastructure

Designed with Dell Technologies’s kinetic infrastructure, PowerEdge MX creates shared pools of disaggregated compute and storage resources, connected by scalable fabric, from which workloads can draw resources needed to run most quickly and efficiently. Then when no longer needed the resources are returned into the pool. By essentially creating hardware on the fly the capacity can be managed at a data center level instead of a per server level.

  • Full-featured, no compromise compute sleds with Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors
  • Generous, scalable on-board SAS, SATA, and NVMe storage drives, plus substantial, granular SAS direct-attached storage using optional storage sleds
  • Scalable fabric architecture with a grow-as-you-need fabric expansion capability for up to 10 chassis in fabric.

Increase effectiveness and accelerate operations with unified automation

Embedded Dell Technologies OpenManage Enterprise – Modular Edition delivers the key abilities of OpenMange Enterprise systems management within the PowerEdge MX chassis. A unified simple interface manages compute, storage and fabric, reducing costs and the learning curve and consolidates multiple tools. Redundant management modules ensure highest availability.

  • Automatic expansion from one to multiple chassis; scale management to thousands of PowerEdge MX and rack servers with OpenManage Enterprise
  • Flexible, at-the-box management front control panel options include Quick Sync 2 (wireless), touchscreen LCD and traditional crash cart
  • Comprehensive RESTful API helps automate multiple tasks and integrates to third-party tools
  • Seamlessly integrates with integrated Dell Remote Access Controller 9 (iDRAC9) and Lifecycle Controller (LC)
Task Automation

Protect infrastructure and investment with responsive design

Reduce the risk of infrastructure investment and help make new innovations more easily available with PowerEdge MX7000 future-forward architecture. Designed to maximize longevity and minimize disruptive technology changes support across both generational and architectural transitions is provided.

  • Multi-generational assurance with support for at least three server processor microarchitecture generations
  • Nearly zero throughput limitations, providing high-speed technology connections, and well into the future, with no midplane upgrade
  • Industry-leading thermal architecture and mechanical design and control algorithms support dense configurations and future compatibility
