Dell PowerEdge R720 dual INTEL XEON TEN CORE E5-2660V2 + Xpenology

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I have a Dell R720 with two 10-core Xeons and 64GB RAM and I want to install DSM.
Can Xpenology handle and use the full power of 20 cores total and 64GB RAM? I want to use this for VMs and as a NAS.

Or I should forget the bare metal install because xpenology does not support that many cores

Thank you!

the best that could be done baremetal would be 16 cores with 3617, so esxi seems to be the most reasonable approach to use all cpu's

the cpu can handle vt-d so it would be possible to hand down a whole controller to have a baremetal like vm (physical disks on an controller inside the vm, not virtual mappings or anything)
