in a smart 2U shared infrastructure chassis that saves more than 100 watts than previous designs.
Designed with your needs in mind
power distribution, saving more than 100 watts.6
Whether you’re seismic processing, video rendering,
or running scientific simulations, server performance,
bandwidth and efficiency can impact time and cost to
This server has fewer boards and connecting cables than
the previous version, while providing easier access to
components to help simplify and speed maintenance.
The ability to run high-frequency processors can increase
performance.1 Servers that can run at higher ambient
temperatures can help reduce cooling costs. Simplified
serviceability can save time while helping increase uptime,
and the flexibility to run multiple configurations in the
same chassis means the ability to do more with less.
Mix workloads in the same chassis
Choose processors, memory, cards and connectivity per
server node to mix workloads in the same chassis. The
PowerEdge C6220 comes with 12 x 3.5” or 24 x 2.5” hard
We incorporated that customer feedback into the next
generation Dell™ PowerEdge™ C6220 server. This scaleout building block is a workhorse with up to four 2-socket
Intel© Xeon™ E5-2600 processor-based servers in a
streamlined 2U shared infrastructure chassis.
Feel free to use the x8 PCIe mezzanine slot for 10Gb
Ethernet, Infiniband, or SAS HBAs, and the standard x16
PCIe slot to connect to the PowerEdge C410x PCIe
expansion chassis. The two-node version has twice the
PCIe slots for more bandwidth, and room for a full-height,
full-length card to increase expandability options.

In addition to this generational leap in processor
performance, the PowerEdge C6220 server supports up
to 135 watt processors, adding ~20% in performance over
the 95 watt processor.3
When it comes to memory, 16 DIMM slots provide up to
256GB of memory per server node; up to four nodes; and
1600MHz memory is available to help improve bandwidth
per processor.
The Xeon E5-2600 processor has 2.3x the memory
bandwidth of the previous generation, with four memory
channels, and the integrated I/O helps reduce latency up
to 30%.4
The PowerEdge C6220 server is also available with PCI
Express (PCIe) Generation 3, doubling the I/O bandwidth
of the previous generation.5
Accomplish more with less
The space-conscious PowerEdge C6220 server comes in
two- and four-node versions, with a streamlined shared
infrastructure chassis. The server nodes share Platinumcertified power supplies, high-efficiency fans, and
enhanced power routing at the midplane to help improve

The PowerEdge C6220 server is part of Dell’s hyperscale-inspired PowerEdge C server line designed to bring the most compute power in the least
amount of space with the least energy draw to lower operational costs. These servers have the right combination of what you need and nothing
more. They are purpose-built servers designed for high performance computing, Web 2.0, hosting, data analytics, and cloud building. They are
best for rack deployments, large homogenous cluster/cloud application environments where the software stack provides primary platform availability and resiliency. The PowerEdge C server line does not come with features you don’t need in a scale-out environment like comprehensive
systems management, or broad enterprise storage.
