Featuring powerful processors, huge memory, flash storage and extensive I/O options, the R730 delivers performance in many demanding environments. It is an excellent server for both midsize and large organisations looking for best in class virtualisation, cloud apps, web tech, HPC, CRM/ERP, VDI or mid-range medical imaging.This bundle includes:
The PowerEdge R730 offers tremendous functional flexibility. With up to 7 I/O expansion slots, server functionality can be customised to optimally suit the needs of the data centre. The R730 delivers incredible processing/virtualisation density and high reliability. It supports up to 2 double width accelerators/GPUs (or 4 single width) for imaging applications or HPC environments. Automated deployment and updates are included out of the box with iDRAC8, as well as new local management capabilities (iDRAC quick Sync, iDRAC direct). The R730 delivers easy lifecycle manageability with intuitive management tools using Dell OpenManage.
Maximise workload performance
Intel® Xeon® E5-2600v4 processors and DDR4 memory combine to drive powerful computing performance for a wide range of applications. The R730 can accommodate dual RAID cards and up to 16 x 12Gbps SAS drives to boost data access speeds. Advanced accelerators and GPUs can deliver peak performance for HPC, VDI and imaging environments.
The R730 has built in flexibility and ample expansion potential. It can house up to 24 DDR4 memory modules, has seven PCIe 3.0 slots and comes with 16 x 2.5" drive bays. Packing such an array of features into a 2U chassis creates a dense, centralised and resource rich system primed for virtualisation. Add in the GPU capabilities and this transforms the R730 into an excellent candidate for midrange medical imaging solutions. It also opens up significant infrastructure and management operation cost savings.
Boost operational efficiency
Like all PowerEdge servers, the R730 benefits from a suite of automated deployment processes and reduced manual configuration/intervention that help speed up server deployments. Innovative tools such as iDRAC Direct and iDRAC Quick Sync provide detailed system health information, optimise energy usage and accelarate time-to-production.
Innovative management with intelligent automation
The Dell OpenManage systems management portfolio includes innovative solutions that simplify and automate management tasks, making IT operations more efficient and more cost-effective throughout the server life cycle. Leveraging the incomparable agentfree capabilities of the embedded iDRAC with Lifecycle Controller, server deployment, configuration and updates are rapid and worry free.

Our engineers can install this server on-site from as little as £250. Contact our sales team for further details.
We can list several compelling reasons:
Our bundles are assembled and tested in-house by our systems engineers prior to shipping. Most orders received in good time are configured and despatched on the same business day. During busy periods this can take an additional day or two. Our team will keep you posted regarding progress.
We only ever use original branded components in our server bundles. As such, we can guarantee compatibility and provide the full manufacturer warranty cover that would be in force for the server itself.
In most cases, yes. We carry a large inventory of servers and server options so can cater for a wide variety of needs directly from stock. Email our sales team with your requirements and we'll come back to you with a competitive quotation and indicative turnaround time.
We check our prices daily against a wide range of competitors to try to bring you the best deal. However, if you've spotted a better price offered by one of our competitors, please let us know and we'll do our very best to match it.Price Match Challenge
The IT sector is littered with companies who don't hold stock. Their websites advertise products that are sourced from third party suppliers. Pricing and availability data on such sites is typically retrieved from files or feeds which are often not refreshed regularly enough. The result? Cancelled orders, long lead times and disgruntled customers.
King of Servers is a major stockholder with full transparency into our stockholding and pricing. Our website is refreshed on a 15-minute cycle 24/7 so the pricing and availability you see online is both accurate and reliable.
We recommend you double check a cheaper price elsewhere is accurate and based on physical stock that can be shipped immediately before placing your order.
We show true stock counts on our website, not woolly messages like ‘in stock' or ‘available to order'. Stock levels are updated every 15 minutes 24/7 so you can see exactly how many units we have sat in our warehouse available for immediate despatch.
And speaking of shipping, did you know we offer same day deliveries? You can choose this or other timed services during checkout on our website or contact our sales team for a quote. Handy when you need the goods in a hurry!
Most web stores fail to specify the stock condition of the products they advertise for sale. It seems reasonable to assume that all products are brand new, unused units supplied in the sealed, original manufacturer packaging and protected by the full warranty but this isn't always the case.
A heavily discounted price can be a sign that the product in question may be a used or refurbished unit. Open/damaged box and ‘ex demo' units are also rife in the marketplace and warranty cover on such goods will be variable so it's wise to check what you're getting before committing to any purchase.
King of Servers displays the product condition on all our product pages. As well as detailing what the condition means, we specify the level of warranty condition allowing you to make an informed buying decision.
Ensure you compare like for like when shopping around for prices online.
All brand new products come with a full manufacturer warranty, right? Not always; it depends where the products were sourced from. You may have heard of the grey market or parallel imports? Manufacturers often stipulate the geographical regions in which their products are designated for sale. Unscrupulous suppliers seek to source goods from outside of these regions at cheaper costs which they pass on via cheaper prices. The downside is that the manufacturer might not honour the warranty in the event of a support call. Grey kit does not qualify for warranty support and if it fails, you could be significantly out of pocket.
All products offered for sale at King of Servers are sourced from legitimate channels and are covered by warranty. For added peace of mind, we can supply serial numbers up front which can be validated on the manufacturer's website to ensure warranty cover is in place prior to purchase.
Ask any potential supplier if they can supply serial numbers ahead of purchase. Any legitimate stockholder who has sourced the goods from the proper channels should be able and happy to do so.
Look beyond the price and establish whether the company behind the product is a bona fide organisation that you can return to should you encounter issues down the line. This is particularly important if you've never heard of them before. It's relatively easy to set up a web shop nowadays which makes it difficult to differentiate between a one-man band operating out of a home office and a well-established, reputable bricks and mortar business. Sales T&Cs, returns policy and aftercare service are probably important areas for you to consider.
King of Servers is an ISO 9001 certified company committed to supplying products and services that consistently meet our customers' requirements and expectations. We are a Feefo Commended Merchant thanks to our consistently high customer service scores gathered independently from genuine purchase verified customers.
