What is the DELL PowerEdge R330 1U?
The R330 is a 13th generation server of the PowerEdge family equipped with Intel’s Skylake processor. The server is although compact in size, DELL has managed to pack increasingly powerful hardware inside the 1U chassis.
The server comes with a single socket on the inside that houses a four core Xeon E3 1200 V5 processor. Although the single socket can be a set-back but with this compact size and the highly integrated motherboard, it simply requires to be set up set right but that’s the tricky part.
The RAM on this server is somewhat restricted and much lower that what most other high performance 1U chassis servers can offer. You can plug in a maximum of 64 GB of DDR4 storage through 4 DIMM slots. Although the system is compatible high speed 2133 MT/s RAM, you will need to use up the entire 64 GB especially if you will be having a large number of concurrent users running memory intensive applications. For internal memory, it supports the use of eight 2.5” SFF disks and a maximum of 40 TB can be plugged in.
The inside of the server is neatly segregated into two sections, with storage hardware towards the front and the electronics towards the rear.
The chassis has space for two 350W power supply units in the back. You can find three smaller fans in each of these units alongside three larger fans in the middle of the chassis. These larger fans carry out the main cooling inside the server. If your server has been configured to house more storage, there is space to add one more fan in the middle of the chassis.
In terms of performance, the Dell R330 surpasses the specifications of an entry level server with a high processing power and speed in the compact size using the newer Skylake silicon processors. You can install the E3 1200 V6 CPU chip along with a high performance RAM to get an enterprise level performance from the R330.
For better energy efficiency, you can go for the E3 1240 V5 chip that uses about 40W and you may even go for 25W alternatives, but the default energy rating of the device is decent enough, being 80W.
Management and Deployment
Our refurbished servers come with the cable management kit which things much neater especially you are to use the R330 alongside a range of servers. Fitting is also easier, and the server can be deployed in a few minutes in a server rack.
Equipped with an integrated iDRAC8 remote management controller, the R330 can be remotely operated for updates and monitoring using Dell’s OpenManage platform.
Should You Buy a Refurbished Server?
Here at KahnServers, we test and verify your refurbished server before shipping and each server from us comes with a one-year RTB warranty.
With new servers, the rate of depreciation is sometimes not worth the price tag and the room for scalability is also limited since one already spends thousands to deploy it. Refurbished servers are a better option due to the room for scalability since you can always upgrade components without them being too heavy on your pocket and also the rate of depreciation is relatively lower than that for new servers.
