Flexible, High-Capacity Storage

The server features front-side-accessible storage bays supporting up to 16 hot pluggable, serial-attached SCSI (SAS), serial-ATA (SATA) or nonvolatile memory express (NVMe) drives for flexible configuration. These capabilities allow the server to deliver both high I/O performance and high capacity for demanding applications and solutions.

I/O Expansion

A mix of up to eight full-height, low-profile and mezzanine PCIe 3.0 expansion slots are available, which allows the DS240 server to be flexibly configured. Add I/O expansion and controller modules as needed to optimize the throughput, capacity and I/O performance of the system to support a wide range of enterprise applications.

Enterprise-Class Features

The DS240 server provides the reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) features that business-critical enterprise applications demand. The server’s modular design simplifies cable routing and reduces service time. Redundant, hot-swap drives and power supplies provide a resilient architecture for important applications, and dual-rotor hot-swap fans help ensure continuous operation.

Embedded Server Management

An integrated baseboard management controller allows the server to be managed remotely and independently. A dedicated interface facilitates secure remote access through a LAN connection and provides a powerful, easy-to-use web console interface for remote initialization, management and configuration.
