Multi-purpose, high-capacity value rack server
The PowerEdge R510 is an Intel processor-based 2-socket, 2U rack server ideal for department, branch or small business database tasks, email, virtualization, workload consolidation and core business applications with large, local storage needs.
Right Sized, Flexible Technology and Business Value
The R510 can serve the needs of small and medium businesses or corporate environments by providing an excellent platform for core business applications such as Microsoft® SQL Server® and Microsoft® Exchange.
- Advanced systems management capabilities
- Short and dense 24" chassis
- High availability and redundancy features
- Cost-effective RAID option
- Large amounts of internal storage capacity
Purposeful DesignThe PowerEdge™ R510 follows the 11th-generation PowerEdge portfolio behavioral specifications and features the same system design commonality and reliability true to the entire portfolio. All 11th-generation servers are built with user ease in mind.
Simplified Systems Management
The Lifecycle Controller is the engine for advanced embedded management that is delivered as part of the optional iDRAC Express or iDRAC Enterprise in the PowerEdge R510. The Lifecycle Controller helps to deliver faster server deployment and update capabilities from a bare-metal pre-operating system (OS) environment.
- The Lifecycle Controller is a chip that is integrated on the server. It helps to simplify administrator tasks by performing a complete set of provisioning functions such as system deployment, system updates, hardware configuration and diagnostics from a single intuitive interface called Unified Server Configurator (USC) in a pre-OS environment. This eliminates the need to use and maintain multiple pieces of disparate CD/DVD media.
- Also part of Dell's systems management portfolio is the Dell Management Console, part of Open Manage™ , which is included with every Dell server and provides IT managers with a single console view of their entire IT infrastructure.
