Dell EMC Ready Nodes are tested and validated configurations that are designed to provide the best possible performance. Dell EMC S2D Ready Nodes come primarily in three configurations—hybrid, all-flash and all-NVMe—to best accommodate your price versus performance requirements. This solution includes all-flash Ready Nodes based on preconfigured 14th generation PowerEdge R640 servers. The PowerEdge R640 servers support a broad range of deployment options in terms of network interface controllers (NICs), drives, and processor capabilities.
The R640 S2D Ready Node is the ideal dual-socket platform for dense scale-out data center computing and storage. Built on a scalable system architecture, the all-flash R640 S2D Ready Node provides two drive options, as shown in the following table, to easily meet performance demands.
Table 1. All-flash S2D Ready Node drive options
R640 S2D Ready Node (12 drives)—2.5-inch-drive from factor
12 x SSD
R640 S2D Ready Node (10 drives)—2.5-inch-drive from factor
10 x SSD
