Dell PowerEdge R620
A hyper-dense 2-socket, 1U rack server, the Dell™ PowerEdge™ R620 has a large memory
footprint and impressive I/O options that make it an exceptional platform for space-sensitive
Designed for exceptional performance on a wide
range of applications, the Dell PowerEdge R620 rack
server is an impressive general purpose platform that
is perfect for data centers with space constraints.
With its hyper-dense memory (up to 768GB in a
1U form factor) and powered by Intel® Xeon® E5
processors, the R620 really shines when handling
virtualization, High Performance Computing (HPC),
and workgroup collaboration applications.
Accomplish more
Pack more computing power into a
space-challenged data center with the PowerEdge
R620, which offers an exceptionally large memory
footprint along with balanced, scalable I/O
capabilities, including integrated PCIe Gen3-capable
expansion slots. With reliability, availability and
serviceability (RAS) features like hot-swappable fans,
disks, power-supply units (PSUs) and even redundant
failsafe hypervisors, the R620 keeps your data center
running with rock-steady reliability.
Dense design for demanding
Virtualization environments demand high memory
capacity to maximize the number of virtual machines
per server, and the PowerEdge R620 was designed
specifically with these environments in mind. It also
offers outstanding computational density for HPC
application clusters by providing powerful processing
capabilities in a compact form factor.
Tailor your network fabric
The R620’s network features allow you to tailor
your network throughput to match your application
needs, enabling added I/O performance. Dell Select
Network Adapters, our flexible NIC technology, let
you choose the right network fabric without using up
a valuable PCI slot. You can pick speed, technology,
vendor and other options, like Switch Agnostic
February 2012
Partitioning (SWAP) that lets you share and manage
bandwidth on 10GbE connections.
The PowerEdge server line
The PowerEdge family is engineered with the right
combination of features and performance scalability
to handle tough workloads for both large and small
data center environments.
The Dell OpenManage™ systems management
portfolio includes Dell Remote Access Controller
(iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller. This embedded
feature helps IT Administrators manage Dell servers
in physical, virtual, local 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.
