PowerEdge C6145 Server - Experience exceptional performance-per-U

Break through those computing bottlenecks

If you’re overwhelmed by projects, simulations and calculations, and your data is growing too fast for you to keep up, Dell™ PowerEdge™ C6145 servers can provide the muscle you need.

  • AMD processing power: 8-, 12- and 16-core AMD Opteron™ 6200 and 6300 processors designed to deliver more cores and greater performance* in a smaller silicon footprint.
  • Blazing I/O speed: 40Gbps I/O per card with three x16 PCIe 2.0 slots, one x8 mezz slot and a dedicated host interface card (HIC) slot per server, means fast connections between network and storage nodes, without weak links in the communications chain. Each part goes faster, so you can bring your results to life faster.

Configure and scale with superb flexibility

Shape your server to meet your needs. The PowerEdge C6145 provides a near-endless supply of options for solving your specific problems. Combining two 4-socket servers and 10 total PCIe slots in a single 2U chassis allows you to flex with your needs.

PowerEdge C6145 Server - Mix and match different cards
Mix and match different cards
Have a project with special needs? The C6145's PCIe slots give you extra flexibility to finish the job quickly and efficiently. Run, for example, a RAID controller, Infiniband card, 10GbE card and a host interface card all in the same server.
PowerEdge C6145 Server - Combine resources
Combine resources
Compute massive parallel calculations by joining a PowerEdge C6145 with a PowerEdge C410x PCIe expansion chassis (16 PCIe slots) to double the server-to-GPU ratio.
PowerEdge C6145 Server - Scale economically
Scale economically
Since the PowerEdge C6145 and C410x combination disaggregates CPUs from GPUs, you can help control costs by scaling and reconfiguring at each processor's respective refresh rate.
PowerEdge C6145 Server - Economize without compromise

Economize without compromise

The high density of PowerEdge™ C6145 servers enables you to design an economical data center without sacrificing performance. Two 4-socket servers in just 2U of space permits shared mechanicals, power supplies and high-efficiency fans that can use less power and cooling resources while conserving rack space and cabling.

The AMD Opteron™ 6200 and 6300 series processor that powers the server also has outstanding price/performance characteristics.
