Dell’s PowerEdge R710 server was released in 2009 and offers reduced power consumption plus Dell’s integrated systems management tools, including iDRAC6 with Lifecycle Controller. Dell provides several additional tools for Administrators to manage the system on-site or remotely with an Enterprise upgrade key.
