Dell PowerEdge R620 Review
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.
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 workloads 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 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.
