Dell PowerEdge R series are very handy and easy to deploy rack-based servers. I am using Dell PowerEdge R710, R720 & R730 for more than 5 years. We use these rack servers as Hypervisor i.e., VMware ESXi as well as a backup server. Most of the virtual infrastructure is running on this series. You can use these rack servers as standalone ones, or like a hypervisor, etc.

We are using Dell PowerEdge R series servers in our production environment. We have 6 of them in a vSAN cluster located in only one location. We made the decision of buying them helped by Dell Consulting services. They helped us to simulate our main load and to project how that load would best fit into their hardware.

We use Dell PowerEdge R servers for any requirement for traditional rack mount server compute and storage. Typically we'll use them for physical database servers, file sharing servers where significant storage is required with often the addition of hybrid storage (using Enmotus software) of hard disk and ssd combinations to deliver excellent i/o performance for a good price.

The PowerEdge R is a server that houses all of our files, including data, images, audio, and other media. We use PowerEdge R to manage the server and our 30+ employees. We allow and restrict those who has access to certain data. The server allows for Windows backup and password protection. The server allows multiple users to access the information remotely.

This server is being utilized for our Active Directory in 2 different sites. We are using R330 and R340 1U Rack. We required a simple, cost effective and slim profile server on top of our existing hyperconverged environment. For some reason we still believe that a physical AD is necessary.

I am a Dell channel partner and resell servers and workstations to small offices, medical and dental offices. It solves issues by having files centralized and on a domain. We use these servers so employees can share files view files and back up files. I have worked with Dell for years to customize the Power Edge servers to meet our clients needs.

We have been using Dell PowerEdge servers for about 10 years. We have some of R740 and R440 at our company, and we use them for many purposes like Windows domain, application servers, VM systems, and other. We use the R740 for cloud applications and VMs, they came with a punch of storage slots and 2nd generation of Intel Xeon, these are quite reliable servers and have the smooth performance we rarely had issues with them. We use the R440 for domain controlling and applications.

We deploy our Dell PowerEdge servers company wide. They support all aspects of the company; especially as virtualization constantly evolves bringing in newer opportunities. It addresses many issues but the most valuable is demoing different software products or product testing before it is deployed throughout the company. It acts as a lab environment as well as supporting production infrastructure.

We currently have two Dell PowerEdge R devices running as EXHost servers for our VMware network. We have our load of virtual servers split between the two host devices, with a NetApp FAS2200 device on the backend housing all of the virtual files. We're running 128GB RAM on each device with 200GB local storage for additional failover and OS management. This has been our backbone for the last 7 years.

We exclusively run these servers in all our supported environments. We used to use them as physical servers and now they are all set up as ESXi hosts. They are usually set up with 8 locally attached hard drives that serve as the data stores for ESXi.
