Ultradense shared infrastructure in a 2U chassis
With four 2-socket server nodes in a 2U rack chassis, the PowerEdge™ C6100 is hyperscale inspired for high-performance cluster computing, (HPCC), Web 2.0 environments, hosting and cloud builders.
Ultradense, flexible and efficient computingThe PowerEdge™ C6100 provides capacity, performance and flexibility in a very dense package. The highly efficient 2U rack chassis supports up to 12 x 3.5” or 24 x 2.5” hot-plug Serial Attached SCSI (SAS), Serial ATA (SATA) or solid-state drive (SSD) hard drives.
The PowerEdge C6100 features up to 94 percent efficient hot-plug redundant power supplies that can help you improve energy efficiency and lower operating costs by effectively reducing total power consumption. Plus, a shared infrastructure can help reduce floor space, power use and cooling, producing one of the most eco-friendly designs yet.
Best-in-class density without sacrificeIncreasing density shouldn't mean sacrificing critical features such as single-node serviceability and hot-plug hard-drive flexibility.
With four 2-socket server nodes in a 2U rack chassis, the PowerEdge C6100 offers maximum density with the convenience of both single-node serviceability and hot-plug 2.5" and 3.5" hard-disk drives. The result: an uncompromised, remarkably efficient server with twice the density capability of traditional 1U servers.
Ultimate Flexibility in a Standard 2U ChassisThe PowerEdge C6100 has the specialized features you need to run your hyperscale applications, while providing flexibility with open standards. The PowerEdge C6100 offers a number of flexible features in its standard 2U rack chassis, including:
- Front-mounted 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch hot-plug hard drives
- Up to four discrete 2-socket nodes
- x16 PCIe slot and x8 mezzanine slots
- Hot-plug redundant power supplies
- Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) 2.0 dedicated management
Save Power and Increase EfficiencyBy sharing power supplies, fans and backplanes, the PowerEdge C6100 effectively reduces the total amount of power consumed for energy efficiency and lower operating costs.
