Resources

Windows Server 2008 R2
Choosing the right server solution starts with understanding how the server will be used, the applications it will be running, and how critical those functions are to your company. Dell has all the resources necessary to get you started. Once you've identified the features you need, Dell can then help you choose and customize an ideal server solution for your business.

Which server is right for you?

Because performance requirements vary according to business size, a key consideration when choosing a server is the number of users it will support. Dell offers several PowerEdgeTM server options, each designed to maximize performance for a certain number of users as well as specific business needs. Using the Dell Server Matrix Chart and Checklist provided below will help you easily select the specific server that's the right fit for you.
