Dell (DELL) said its PowerEdge VRTX, a converged IT solution purpose-built for remote and small office settings, which it first announced in early June, is now available worldwide.
I have a 10 year old Dell Poweredge 2950 that will be replaced with a Dell Poweredge R820. Both of these machines are set up as a Virtual Machine Host Running Hyper-V. Both Operating Systems are Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard x64 Bit.
I currently have Vmware ESXI 5 cluster with Dell Poweredge R710 hosts. I was told that its possible when a host goes into stand-by to have a "quick-boot" when it comes out. At this time I am waiting 7+ minutes. I have seen another cluster that boots out of stand-by in 30 seconds.
Is this a setting or part of IPMI or bios? If so how do i set this up?
What is the small heartbeat/heart monitor indicator on the front of a PowerEdge R515 (12 disk bay model)? We've scoured all the Dell documentation and can find no mention of it for the R515. On our UK R515, it's blue. On our USA R515 it's a worrying steady red.
