No compromising

Get everything you want without buying more than you need with the PowerEdge™ C5220 microserver. This scale-out, highly serviceable, hyperefficient microserver offers increased density to help save cost, energy, rack space and cabling.
PowerEdge C5220 Servers - Put your microserver to work

Put your microserver to work

Each 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.
  • CDN: Help amplify content delivery network (CDN) efficiency for media content storage and distribution, including audio, video, Javascript, and CSS and XML elements.

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.

PowerEdge C5220 Servers - Cut costs

Cut costs

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.
PowerEdge C5220 Servers - Save space

Save space

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.
PowerEdge C5220 Servers Simplify servicing

Simplify servicing

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.
