Performance and Security — Basic, Just Better

The stand-alone, AMD-based Dell™ PowerEdge™ T105 1-socket tower server offers simplified server computing for small businesses. An ideal choice for the first-time server buyer or a small business owner, the PowerEdge T105 is an economical enterprise solution. Standard security features help manage security risks, while the server is designed to be easy to set up, manage and maintain.

Secure your Data

Secure your Data

Keep data centrally maintained and always available by adding a server to your IT environment. Security features include an internal, locked-down USB port, chassis intrusion switch and a built-in Trusted Platform Module (TPM) which enables system authentication, assists with encryption and helps prevent tampering. At Dell, we believe that the security of your data shouldn’t require a costly hardware upgrade.
Simple Setup

Dell can ensure a fast deployment, from delivery to configuration. Dell servers are fully assembled and tested, with most arriving in a single box to save space, time and waste.
