Limitations of NVMe Options in Dell PowerEdge R620 Server

TLDR; The video discusses the limitations of using NVMe options like U.2, M.2, and PCIe in the Dell PowerEdge R620 server, with none of the options working for the 12th generation servers.

💡 Limitations of U.2 NVMe

The U.2 NVMe option for the 620 server was explored, but it was found that there are no U.2 solutions available for the 620.

The speaker mentioned, "Unfortunately, there are no U.2 solutions for the 620." This indicates the unavailability of U.2 NVMe options for the Dell PowerEdge R620 server.

🔌 Issues with M.2 NVMe

The exploration of M.2 NVMe solutions revealed that the slot bifurcation isn't an option with the 620 servers, even with an updated BIOS.

This means that M.2s are not a viable option for the Dell PowerEdge R620 server.

The speaker stated, "Slot bifurcation isn't an option with the 620s even with an updated BIOS.

It's just not an option." This clearly indicates the incompatibility of M.2 NVMe options with the server.

❌ Unsuccessful Attempt with PCIe NVMe

The attempt to use PCIe NVMe options, specifically with Intel, Samsung, and Dell firmware versions, was unsuccessful.

None of them worked for the R620 server. The speaker emphasized, "Neither the Intel, the Samsung, the Dell firmware version of it, none of them worked for the R620." This indicates the failure of PCIe NVMe options for the 12th generation servers.

🔍 Thorough Verification Process

The speaker mentioned that they extensively verified the NVMe options by using iDRAC, installing VMware, and conducting various checks.

Despite these efforts, none of the options worked for the Dell PowerEdge R620 server.

This thorough verification process highlights the comprehensive assessment of the NVMe options.

📧 Custom Server Builds

The video ends with an invitation for viewers interested in custom-built servers to contact the Cloud Ninjas team.

The speaker encourages viewers to email them for custom-built Dell, Super Micro, HP, Cisco servers, indicating their willingness to cater to specific server requirements.
