Packing a performance punch
Smooth server operations allow employees to run applications and access data efficiently from any desktop in the office, fostering workplace productivity and collaboration. But space is often at a premium in small and medium businesses, as well as remote offices of larger organizations — requiring servers that don’t take up much real estate. Servers may end up close to workers’ desks, so quiet operation is a must.
That’s where the Dell PowerEdge R220 rack server comes in. The one-socket, 1U server can be installed virtually anywhere. Its short 15.5-inch (394 mm) chassis depth is well suited for space-constrained environments, and office-level acoustics means the server can operate unobtrusively without distracting people working nearby.
Exceptional performance sparks collaboration and productivity
The PowerEdge R220 server is powered by the multi-core Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v3 product family, which delivers 12 percent higher performance than the previous-generation Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v2 product family. Plus, you can experience blazing-fast response times through up to 32 GB memory capacity supported by four DIMM slots and the latest-generation PCI Express (PCIe) Gen3 I/O.
Essential data protection maintains high availability
Hardware RAID options and built-in security capabilities are designed to protect against data loss and keep your critical workloads running reliably. In addition, the server’s error-correcting code memory helps ensure data availability, even in the event of single-bit memory errors.
Intuitive management helps simplify IT tasks
Embedded agent-free management through the Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller 7 (iDRAC7) with Lifecycle Controller enables you to reclaim hours of time and reduce the potential for error. As well, Dell OpenManage Essentials streamlines the deployment, monitoring and management of PowerEdge servers. The time savings can be impressive: It takes 97 percent fewer steps to capture and deploy hardware configurations on the PowerEdge R220 with iDRAC7 compared to manual capture and deployment.
