poweredge-c6320-Performance and efficiency

Performance and efficiency

Build your high-performance clusters and scale-out solutions with PowerEdge C6320 servers, featuring:
  • Next-generation Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v4 processors with increased core counts over prior E5-2600 v3 models, supporting up to 512GB of memory per server node for a total of 2TB of memory in a highly dense and modular 2U solution.
  • Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC8) with Lifecycle Controller, cost optimized in C6320, to provide stable, efficient server management in physical, virtual, local and remote environments
  • Flexible 2.5" and 3.5" high-capacity drive configurations
  • 16 DIMM slots to tailor memory capacity (up to 512GB*) to meet your needs
  • DDR4 memory providing as much as 15 percent greater memory bandwidth and drawing up to 30 percent less power than DDR3 RAM

Maximum flexibility

Save space and meet changing workloads by providing the right mix of processor performance, node options and energy efficiency with up to four independent sleds (server nodes) and flexible HDD assignments in one 2U chassis.

  • Up to 44 cores per node, 176 core per chassis
  • Up to 24 x 2.5" or 12 x 3.5" SAS, SATA or SSD hot-plug drives per chassis
  • Dual hot-plug, high-efficiency 1400W and 1600W power supplies
  • Optional Integrated SATA DOM (64GB) boot device frees up valuable hard drive space for your data
  • One x16 PCIe 3.0 slot and one x8 PCIe 3.0 mezzanine slot per 1U sled
  • Integrated LOM: 2x 10GbE (SFP+)

Enhance your productivity

Easily manage your PowerEdge C6320 servers by automating routine lifecycle management tasks with technology from the Dell OpenManage portfolio, based on the agent-free iDRAC8 with embedded Lifecycle Controller, working alone or in conjunction with other Dell OpenManage components and third-party management tools, including:

  • OpenManage Essentials
  • Dell’s integrations for BMC BladeLogic
  • Microsoft System Center
  • VMware vCenter
These enable you to streamline operations within your existing IT management environment.

Easing your management tasks

The iDRAC with Lifecycle Controller offers a complete set of server management features – including configuration, OS deployment, firmware updates, health monitoring and maintenance – that work regardless of operating system state or the presence of a hypervisor.

Agent free – Monitor basic memory, CPU and I/O performance and establish custom alert thresholds to alert through SNMP, Racadm or WSman – all without OS agents or any impact on OS or server components.

 poweredge-c6320-lifecycle-controllerLifecycle Controller – Provide local deployment and simplified serviceability with a tool that integrates with Dell OpenManage Essentials and third party consoles.
 poweredge-c6320-zeroTouch-deployment-provisioningZero touch deployment and provisioning – Auto-configure servers, and optionally schedule health checks with zero-touch configuration changes (requires iDRAC Enterprise Edition).


Hyperscale environments

Harness the C6320’s hyperscale capabilities for demanding performance and workload-intensive environments.


  • HPC — Implement high-performance, low-latency, massively parallel computing for dense clusters that need high scalability with maximum performance per U.
  • Analytics and big data — Support large-scale data analysis with a maximum compute-density footprint and the ability to tailor server configurations to changing workloads.
  • Cloud — Substantial scalability and density help allow cloud and hosting providers reduce capital expenses and maximize operational performance per sq. ft./per watt.
  • Web 2.0 — Match your server infrastructure to large web-hosting workloads and help eliminate over-provisioning with high scalability and flexible rapid-configuration options.
