Dell PowerEdge C8220 CTO Compute Sled Product Description

See results fast with up to 24 cores, 512GB memory, and two PCIe 3.0 expansion slots in a compact single-wide compute sled designed for the 4U Dell PowerEdge C8000 chassis.

PowerEdge C8220

  • Up to 4x density and 3x Spec_int performance compared to two HP DL380P G8 in 4U6Intel Xeon E5‑2600 and E5‑2600 v2 processors can boost performance by up to 80%
  • Reduce total cost of ownership with shared infrastructure

Keep up with increasing demand

More than 30 billion pieces of content are shared on social media sites every month. One second of high‑definition video generates more than 2,000 times more bytes than a single page of text. Research simulations can generate terabytes of big data to process. Hosting and high performance computing workloads are becoming more resource‑intensive as they try to keep up with increasing demand.

With the Dell PowerEdge C8220 single‑wide compute sled, you get the cores, memory and I/O expansion flexibility you need to quickly meet the needs of the most demanding workloads.

Speed up workloads

The PowerEdge C8220 single-wide compute sled features dual Intel Xeon E5‑2600 or E5‑2600 v2 processors with up to 12 cores each, 16 DIMM slots for up to 512GB of memory, 2.5-inch SATA SSDs for up to 2TB of storage, PCIe 3.0, and dual-port embedded Gigabit Ethernet controllers.

Speed results: the Intel Xeon processor E5 product family can boost server performance by up to 80% over previous-generation processors, accelerate data availability to the processing cores, reducing latency by up to 30%, while delivering up to 70% more performance per watt.

Do more with less

Pack more compute power in the same space, with up to eight PowerEdge C8220 single-wide compute sleds in one 4U PowerEdge C8000 chassis.
The C8000 4U shared infrastructure chassis is designed for efficiency, using 94% platinum‑certified power supplies, and fewer, high-efficiency fans than more traditional servers. Compute, GPU and storage sleds all share chassis, power and cooling, helping save on the total cost of ownership.5 Help save even more by refreshing components, without having to replace the entire chassis.


Flex your IT muscle

Run a mix of hosting or Web tiers per chassis, or run blocks of tiers per chassis. Easily reconfigure the C8000 series and/or scale out as needed over time, by mixing and matching compute, GPU, storage, and power supply sleds within one chassis, multiple chassis, and/or across racks to help get results fast while saving on space, power and cooling.

The PowerEdge C8000 series is part of Dell’s hyperscale-inspired PowerEdge C server line de‑ signed to bring the most compute power in the least amount of space with the least energy draw to help lower operational costs. These servers offer the right combination of what you need and noth‑ ing more. They are purpose-built servers designed for high performance computing, Web 2.0, hosting, data analytics, and cloud building. They are best for rack deployments, large homogenous cluster/cloud application environments where the software stack provides primary platform availability and resiliency. The PowerEdge C server line does not come with features you don’t need in a scale-out environment like comprehensive systems management, or broad enterprise storage.
