Current Use Case

This is Dell PowerEdge VRTX
Smaller, Quieter, More Powerful - and it fits under a desk.
Compact, Portable, and No More Cables!
Compress 4 servers into just 5u of rack space. The integrated network switch eliminates the need to acquire, cable, power and manage an external networking switch.
Rapidly deploy VRTX to consolidate and manage business application in up to four server nodes with shared storage and integrated networking. ideal for remote offices and branch offices of large enterprises and organizations as well as small and medium-business offices, it offers:
  • Huge internal capacities that support extensive growth
  • Office-level acoustics, quieter than a hallway conversation so it can operate non-disruptively, even in quiet environments
  • Fresh air validated configurations that allow you to avois the need for special cooling or worry whn you turn off the AC suring non-business hours
  • Standard power requirements found in most offices (110V-220V), which allows users to avoid the cost of rewiring for high-line power (typically required for servers and storage)
  • Front-access KVM, USB, LCD displa and optional DVD-RW
  • VRTX is also Rack-Mountable for added physical security
Agile, Versatile, and Redundant Out-of-Box

VRTX can be set up in under an hour

Full-functioned unified system management takes much of the time and effort out of systems administration and control. Deploy, monitor, update and maintain through a unified browser-based console that covers servers, storage and networking.

Open Manage essentials together with Chassis Management Controller (CMC) and Geographic View for VRTX enables you to keep an eye on everything in your VRTX platforms, anywhere on your network, allowing:

  • Support for more than 1,000 devices with the ability to launch an application that takes you into the CMC
  • Updating up to 36 severs in nine VRTX platforms simultaneously with only a single system reboot
  • Rapid, at-a-glance, map-based identification of remote system location and health status via color-coded icons
  • Consistency with CMC in the data center
  • Deploying new systems locally or across a network
  • Installing updates to firmaware, BIOS settings and drivers
  • Performing systems maintenance tasks and problem remediation
Uncompromised Power

Employing the latest Poweredge technology and high-availability features, VRTX can help you gain fast application response times, run multiple application that need performance or low latency, power through peak processing periods and scale for future business growth.

Performance and availability features include:

  • Up to four hot-plug Poweredge server nodes with flexible configurations that can mix and match 4-socket M360 blade options to meet your specific needs
  • Support for future-generation Poweredge M-Series blades
  • Dual SD cards for redundant hypervisors
  • Hot-plug and swappable HDDs
  • Many RAID options tailored to specific needs, including optional PERC for RAID controller failover inside the chassis
  • Optional hot-plug and swappable power supply unnits and fans
Modular and Scalable

All server node have access to the low-latency internal shared storage, which is essential for clustering and virtualization, including vMotion. This also helps enable efficient processing hrough peak periods and can improve server-use flexibility.

VRTX allows:

  • Eight-industry-standard PCIe Gen 2 slots which can be shared across the server nodes
    • Three full-height/full-length slots that support graphics processing units (GPUs)
    • Five small form factor (SFF) low-profile/half-length slots
  • Each server node to see the storage as its own singular storage pool
  • Assigning virtual disk to single server nods or across server nodes
  • Live migration of virtual machines within the VRTX chassis without the expense of cabling, powering and managing a SAN
  • Choice of up to 12 x 3.5" HDDs/SSDs(12TB* max.) to scale for capacity or up to 25 x 2.5" self-encrypting drives (SED)
  • External JBOD sonnectivity with up to four MD1200 (12 x 3.5" drive) or MD1220 (24 x 2.5" drive) disk arrays in redundant or capacity based configurations

Server node operations

PowerEdge M630 and M830 server nodes


Redundant power supply units:
100V-240V aut-sensing redundant power supplies support 2+2 (AC redundancy), and 3+1 and 2+1 (power supply redundancy) modes


VRTX comes standard with six hot-pluggable, redundant fan modules and four blower modules:

Based on Dell Energy Smart Technologies, VRTX fans and blowers are a breakthrough in power and cooling efficiency. Fans and blowers deliver low-power consumption and use next-generation fan technologies to ensure the lowest possible amount of fresh air is consumed to cool the enclosure.
