Size

Form factor of server is important in data centre server selection.

  • Based on one or two rackmounts, you have to consider the R730 for its 2u performance or R630 packed into a 1u chassis.
  • While the R730 is a performance powerhouse, it takes up 2 units on your rackmount. Also, analyse how much computing power and storage you are getting per unit on rackmount .

Memory

Major differences between R630 and R730 are amount of memory each server can hold.

  • The R630 can hold up to 1.5TB of RAM using 24 DIMM slots, up to 64GB per slot.
  • The R730 can be configured for up to 3TB of memory using 24 DIMM slots, up to 128 GB per slot.

Drive Bays & Storage

The R630 and the R730 have with their own set of drive bay configurations that offer different storage options.

The R630 has the following drive bay configurations:

  • 24 x 1.8″ SSD – up to 23TB via 0.96 TB hot-plug SATA SSD; 10 x 2.5″ drive bays – up to 18TB via 1.8TB hot-plug SAS HDD;
  • 8 x 2.5″ drive bays –up to 14TB via 1.8TB hot-plug SAS HDD.

Dell’s R730 can be configured in one of two ways:

  • 16 x 2.5″ drive bays –  up to 29TB via 1.8TB hot-plug SAS hard drives,
  • 8 x 3.5″ drive bays– up to 64TB via 8TB hot-plug NL SAS hard drives.

I/O Slots

With respect to additional PCIe slots both can increase the computing power of your device.

The R630 has PCIe three slots whereas the R730 has seven.

Customize your server with additional slot to increase performance, efficiency, and uptime of your server.

  • GPUs,
  • RAID cards,
  • Wi-Fi cards, or
  • SSDs,
  • Dedicated PowerEdge Raid Controller (PERC)

Operating Systems

The 13th generation of Dell servers support the following operating systems:

  • Microsoft Windows Server® 2008/2012 SP2, x86/x64(x64 includes Hyper-V®)
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008/2012 R2, x64(includes Hyper-V®)
  • Novell® SUSE® Linux Enterprise Server
  • Red Hat® Enterprise Linux.

Only the R730 can support Microsoft Windows HPC Server 2008. If a server requirement that supports high power computing, the R730 is the right choice.

Virtualization

Both R630s and R730s can use VMWare or Hyper-V® to achieve virtualization.

Virtualization can increase the efficiency of your data center by offloading large workloads to virtual machines, saving businesses money on server hardware and energy costs.

Virtualization can reduce the number of servers your company needs, reducing the amount time your IT staff spends on configuring and managing your server.

Remote Management

Both the R630 and R730 come standard with the Dell iDRAC 8 express, which allows for remote management of the server without any additional software needed.

iDRAC 8 allows for administrators to connect to the server from a smartphone, tablet, or another computer using a web browser. Take control of your server in any remote location.

Choose the Right Choice

In short,

The R630 provides 2u performance in a 1U rack, which can increase the efficiency of your data center. The R630 is an ideal server for running transactional, analytical, and enterprise-level applications and can also be used for virtualization.

The R730, on the other hand, is a performance powerhouse. Boasting up to 3TB of RAM and up to 64TB of storage, the R730 is ideal for larger applications, such as medical imaging and email servers. The R730 can also support high performance computing applications using Microsoft Windows HPC server 2008.

Choose the R630 if its compact design and for affordability.

For business with large applications that demand higher computing power, such as hosting exchange servers and virtualization, both the R730 and 630 will be the perfect fit.

Because both servers can be configured to very high levels of performance, be sure to compare how much memory and storage you are getting per rack unit.
