Dell PowerEdge M1000E Technical Specifications

Chassis Enclosure

Form Factor: 10U modular enclosure holds up to sixteen half-height blade servers 44.0cm (17.3”) H x 44.7cm (17.6”) W x 75.4cm (29.7”) D


• Empty Chassis only—98lbs

•Chassis w/ all rear modules (IOMs, PSUs, CMCs, KVM)—176lbs

• Max Fully loaded w/ blades and rear modules—394lbs

Power Supplies

Up to six 2700W hot-plug power supplies. Based on Dell’s Energy Smart technologies, the M1000e power supplies deliver greater levels of efficiency, even at low levels of utilization.

Supported power supply configurations include:

• 3+3 and 2+2 (AC redundancy)

• 3+1, 4+2, and 5+1 (power supply redundancy)

• 2+0 and 3+0 (non-redundant mode)

The M1000e chassis supports the new Dynamic Power Supply Engagement functionality, which (if enabled) puts lightly loaded power supplies into standby mode, driving up the utilization and the efficiency of the active supplies. Dell supports either 110–120V or 208–240V AC power supply input and sup

Cooling Fans

M1000e Chassis comes standard with 9 hot-pluggable, redundant fan modules

• Based on Dell Energy Smart Technologies, M1000e fans are a breakthrough in power and cooling efficiency

• The fans deliver low power consumption, but also use next-generation fan technologies to ensure the lowest possible amount of fresh air is consumed to cool the enclosure

Input Device

Front Control Panel with interactive Graphical LCD

• Supports initial configuration wizard

• Local server blade, enclosure, and module information and troubleshooting Two USB Keyboard/Mouse connections and one Video connection (requires the optional Avocent® iKVM switch to enable these ports) for local front “crash cart” console connections that can be switched between blades
