Dell PowerEdge T320
The Dell™ PowerEdge™ T320 features performance and reliability in a quiet,
1-socket tower server.
Designed for a broad range of workloads and
applications, the Dell PowerEdge T320
delivers performance, reliability and value in its
1-socket tower form factor. The PowerEdge
T320 is an excellent fit for a wide range of
general-purpose applications, such as file
and print, email and messaging, productivity
applications, data coordination and sharing.
The T320’s feature set also fits the requirements
of departments and workgroups of large
enterprises and organizations. The robust
design and simplified manageability make it
a trustworthy server for small and medium
businesses, and for branch offices and remote
sites that might not have technical IT skills
Powerful and quietly confident
Boasting up to six DIMM slots of memory,
five PCIe slots for broad I/O bandwidth, and
driven by the extensive performance of the
Intel® Xeon® E5-2400 processors, the T320
delivers balanced performance and built-in
room for growth. Capacity for up to eight
3.5-inch or sixteen 2.5-inch hard drives
accommodate storage as your business or
organization expands.
To protect your virtualized workloads, the T320
offers redundant dual SD media cards making
your hypervisors failsafe. Other reliability and
availability features that give you peace of mind
include hot-plug hard drives, both hardware
and software RAID options, redundant fans and
hot-plug power supplies. Last, but not least,
the T320’s quiet acoustical profile allows it to fit
unobtrusively into quiet office environments.

The PowerEdge server line
The PowerEdge family is engineered with the
right combination of features and performance
scalability to handle tough workloads for
businesses and organizations of all sizes.
The Dell OpenManage™ systems management
portfolio includes Dell Remote Access

and remote environments, operating in-band
or out-of-band, with or without a systems
management software agent. OpenManage
integrates and connects to third-party systems
management solutions so you can maintain
your single point of control and capitalize
on your existing investment. OpenManage
simplifies the lifecycle of deploying, updating,
monitoring, and maintaining your Dell
PowerEdge servers.
