Dell PowerEdge R720 12G Review

StorageReview.com
5 February 2013
  • Summary: The Dell PowerEdge R720 12th Generation marks more than just a progressive step in mainstream 2U server technology. Dell has been the first to embrace front-mounted, hot-swappable PCIe storage technology in the new R720. For enterprise users who want maximum performance with all the serviceability benefits of traditional SFF drives, the new Express Flash design is a savior for so many reasons.
  • Pros: Fastest storage option available in a mainstream 2U server, Highly customizable chassis and BIOS to configure exactly for your environment, Excellent monitoring and management features
  • Cons: Express Flash configuration trades 8 SATA/SAS SFF bays for 4 PCIe bays
