Exceptional PerformanceThe PowerEdge R300 introduces a new, advanced one-socket chipset and processors specifically designed for excellent performance and high-availability features. The R300 offers up to 26 percent boost in performance over the HP DL320 G5p*, making it the highest performing one-socket quad-core server*. And, to make implementation easier and smoother, we build, configure and can image the R300 in our factory so it’s ready to work for you right out of the box.
Reliability Your Business Can TrustWith high-availability features like hot-plug hard drives and redundant power supplies, the PowerEdge R300 helps prevent the loss of data and productivity. With up to 24 GB of memory — three times the memory capacity of competitive one-socket x86 servers — and Intel® quad-core processing, the R300 provides stable performance for memory-intensive applications. And, with authentication through an array of diagnostic tests prior to shipping, it’s designed and built to increase uptime and boost business productivity from the moment you switch it on.
Security Comes StandardRecognizing the importance of information security, the features of the PowerEdge R300 are designed to help ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your data. In fact, this new generation of PowerEdge servers is the most secure ever produced. Standard features include a locked-down internal USB port, chassis intrusion switch, locking bezels and a built-in Trusted Platform Module (TPM) that enables system authentication, assists with encryption and helps prevent tampering.
Combine these excellent features with Microsoft Windows Server® 2008 through Dell and you have a secure, reliable, robust server environment. Advanced security and reliability enhancements help organizations to prevent data theft with Rights Management Services, BitLocker and Group Policy technologies.
Whether you need assistance evaluating Windows Server 2008 or are ready to implement, Dell has the expertise, resources and tools to assist organizations of any size.

Dell Management Plug-in for VMware vCenter™
What if you could manage your physical infrastructure from your virtual console?
What if you could rapidly and consistently provision hardware and deploy virtual machines from within VMware vCenter?
What if you could reduce the number of steps needed to deploy virtual infrastructure?
With the Dell Management Plug-in for VMware vCenter installed in your VMware environment, you can:
• Get deep-level detail from Dell servers for inventory, monitoring and alerting — all from within vCenter
• Deploy BIOS and firmware updates to Dell servers from within vCenter
• Build hardware and hypervisor profiles and deploy any combination of the two on bare-metal Dell PowerEdge servers without a preboot execution environment (PXE)
• Automatically perform Dell-recommended vCenter actions based on Dell hardware alerts
• Access Dell hardware warranty information online
And, to give you even more power, we deliver our plug-in as a virtual appliance. That makes it easier to deploy and configure and offers integration directly into the vCenter console, providing more information inside of vCenter itself — unlike many other vendors who provide only "link-and-launch" capabilities to point to their own proprietary consoles.
The combination of the Dell Management Plug-In for VMware vCenter and the revolutionary embedded management features offered by Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller in Dell PowerEdge servers gives you an unmatched level of integration between vCenter and your server hardware.
