Put your microserver to workEach independent PowerEdge™ C5220 hot-plug server is mounted on a small sled that slides vertically into the 3U PowerEdge™ C5000 chassis. The compact system is ideal for:
- Hosting: Help maximize your productivity per square foot with high server-node density and a shared infrastructure that enables efficient cooling and cabling for cloud system infrastructure and dedicated, virtualized, shared, root-access or SQL hosting.
- Web 2.0: Fill your need for a web file, front-end, fast-loading web content server.
Cut, save and simplify
Take advantage of the PowerEdge™ C5220 microserver design to help build a cost-effective data center that doesn't sacrifice performance. Shared fans and components help provide greater performance per watt than traditional 1U servers.
The PowerEdge™ C5220 packs up to 12 microservers in a 3U PowerEdge™ C5000 chassis, sharing power and cooling resources and using only a fraction of the cooling fans compared to a stack of 1U servers.
With up to 12 server nodes, the 3U PowerEdge™ C5000 chassis has four times the density of three traditional single-socket 1U servers stacked together, enabling more computing power per U of rack space.
Power supplies, interconnect and servers are all cold-aisle accessible, giving you the flexibility to raise the temperature of your data center and thus lower cooling costs.
Inside the PowerEdge C5220You can see that the PowerEdge™ C5220 microserver and C5000 chassis are designed for efficiency. The 3U chassis features an optimized shared infrastructure designed to support up to 12 compact Intel®-powered microservers that are inserted on vertically mounted sleds. Each has a rich feature set that helps you get the job done while helping cut costs, save space and simplify serviceability.
Intel® Xeon® E3-1200 or E3-1200v2 processor with 2 or 4 cores supports up to 65 W thermal design power (TDP) for the 12-sled microserver and up to 95 W TDP for the 8-sled version.
