The 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.
With 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.
Recognising 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 are 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 organisations 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 organisations of any size.
