Ultra-Dense, Flexible and Efficient Computing

Ultradense, flexible and efficient computing

The 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 sacrifice

Increasing 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.
Best-in-Class Density Without Sacrifice

Ultimate Flexibility in a Standard 2U Chassis

The 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 & Increase Efficiency

Save power and increase efficiency

By sharing power supplies, fans and backplanes, the PowerEdge™ C6100 effectively supports reducing the total amount of power consumed for energy efficiency and assists to lower operating costs.
