The R730 offers the flexibility required for a host of applications as well as the ability to boast power needed for most high-performance workloads. The R730 is equipped with up to 16 bays with supported configurations of 16 x 2.5” drives or to 8 x 3.5” drives, which can mix and match SAS or SATA HDDs or SSDs. The server supports Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 processors and 24 DIMM slots to cost-effectively scale up to 1.5TB of DDR4 memory. Additionally, the R730 has the ability to automate several of its management processes leveraging iDRAC8, which helps save administrators a substantial amount of time and energy with both updates and deployments.

Only the R730xd is compatible with the 2.5" NVMe SSDs. It comes with a different backplane up front to support the connection as well as the required hardware internally to route that to one of the PCIe slots.

Excellent information. On the other note. Do you require nvme drives certified by Dell?

The R930 and R920 both functioned with Intel P3700 samples we received directly from Intel. At first glance I'd say its agnostic.
