Ideal for:

  • Virtualization

Get >80% more performance with up to four 2-socket Intel Xeon E5-2600 processor-based servers in a smart 2U shared infrastructure chassis that saves more than 100 watts over previous designs.

  • Intel Xeon E5-2600 processors boost performance by > 80%
  • 135W processors deliver ~20% more performance over 95W
  • Memory bandwidth with support for 16 DIMM 1600MT/s DDR3 DIMMs
  • Smart chassis improvements save more than 100W per chassis
  • 1 x8 Mezzanine card. (Both socket/processors must be used to access the mezzanine)
  • Intel Ethernet Controller i350, 2 x 1Gb Ethernet;
    --1 x 100Mb Ethernet dedicated management port

Designed with your needs in mind

Whether you’re seismic processing, video rendering or running scientific simulations, server performance, bandwidth and efficiency can impact time and cost to results.

The ability to run high-frequency processors can increase performance. Servers that can run at higher ambient temperatures can help reduce cooling costs. Simplified serviceability can save time while helping increase uptime, and the flexibility to run multiple configurations in the same chassis means the ability to do more with less.

We incorporated that customer feedback into the next‑generation Dell PowerEdge C6220 server. This scale‑out building block is a workhorse with up to four 2‑socket Intel Xeon E5-2600 processor-based servers in a streamlined 2U shared infrastructure chassis.

Deliver results faster

The high volume of computations requires performance, from the processor to the memory to the interconnect. Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family features Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 to deliver more than 80% more performance than the Intel Xeon 5600 processors.

In addition to this generational leap in processor performance, the PowerEdge C6220 server supports up to 135 watt processors, adding ~20% in performance over the 95 watt processor.

When it comes to memory, 16 DIMM DDR3 (32GB Max) slots provide up to 512GB of memory per server node — up to four nodes with 1U (Total RAM 2TB) and two nodes with a 2U (Total RAM 1TB) — and 1600MT/s memory speed to help improve bandwidth per processor.

The Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family has 2.3x the memory bandwidth of the previous generation, with four memory channels, and the integrated I/O helps reduce latency up to 30%.

Accomplish more with less

The space-conscious PowerEdge C6220 server comes in 1U and 2U-node versions, with a streamlined shared infrastructure chassis. The server nodes share Platinum certified power supplies, high-efficiency fans, and enhanced power routing at the midplane to help improve power distribution, saving more than 100 watts.

This server has fewer boards and connecting cables than the previous version, while providing easier access to components to help simplify and speed maintenance.

Mix workloads in the same chassis

Choose processors, memory, cards and connectivity per server node to mix workloads in the same chassis. The PowerEdge C6220 comes with 12 x 3.5” or 24 x 2.5” hard drives.

Feel free to use the x8 PCIe mezzanine slot for 10Gb Ethernet, InfiniBand, or SAS HBAs, and the standard x16 PCIe slot to connect to the PowerEdge C410x PCIe expansion chassis. The 2U-node version has twice the PCIe slots for more bandwidth, and room for a full-height, full-length card to increase expandability options.
