Dell PowerEdge R420 CTO Rack Server Product Description

A 2-socket, 1U rack server, the Dell PowerEdge R420 delivers mainstream performance and density.

PowerEdge R420

  • Intel Xeon E5-2400 processors
  • Up to eight 2.5-inch hot-plug hard drives
  • Up to 12 DIMMs with RAS
  • PCIe 3.0-enabled expansion slots
  • Easy to use systems management features

The Dell PowerEdge R420 is a 2-socket, 1U rack-mount server offering an aggressive entry-price point combined with internal expandability, enabling configurations to be tailored to specific workloads and user requirements, and supporting growth through the life of the server. The R420 is an excellent fit specializing in departmental email, workgroup collaboration, web hosting, e-commerce and file and print in space-constrained environments and in departmental or remote sites of large businesses and public organizations. The R420 is also highly attractive for compute-intense applications in space-constrained areas, as well as high-performance computing (HPC) workloads. Consistent worldwide support makes it appealing to multinational businesses and organizations.

Performance and reliability combined for confidence

The R420 features the extensive performance of two Intel Xeon E5-2400 processors. Powerful processors alone, however, are not enough to deliver balanced performance. Compute power must be combined with sufficient memory and I/O bandwidth to prevent performance bottlenecking. The R420 complements its processors with 12 DIMMs and two PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0-enabled expansion slots, providing a substantial memory footprint and wide I/O bandwidth to support both memory-intensive and data-intensive applications and databases. These combined technology features are also necessary to support consolidated and virtualized environments, a role the R420 fills well. To protect your virtualized workloads, the R420 offers dual SD media making your hypervisors redundant and failsafe. Other reliability and availability features include up to four 3.5-inch or eight 2.5-inch hot-plug hard drives, both hardware and software RAID options, and redundant, hot-plug power supplies.

Feature-packed density

Tailor specific configurations to your applications and user requirements with the cost-effective, next generation PowerEdge R420.

High-performance computing
Address mainstream applications with the latest Intel Xeon processor E5-2400 and E5-2400 v2 product families — designed to be a foundation for flexible and efficient data centers that scale readily to meet growing needs, The high-density design of the R420 pairs one- or two-socket configurations with up to 12 dual in-line memory modules (DIMMs) to support both consolidated and virtualized environments.

Scalable I/O features
Support both memory-intensive and compute-intensive applications and databases with flexible I/O bandwidth that features PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0-enabled expansion slots.

Versatile storage options
Configure your storage options to suit your needs. The PowerEdge R420 helps enable you to target your requirements with up to eight drives.

 

Operational efficiency

Leverage the R420’s compact 1U chassis and wide array of reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) features to help fuel your business growth.

Right-sized computing
Put the PowerEdge R420 to work for you where opportunities abound but space is limited.

Intelligent systems management
Simplify deploying, updating, monitoring and maintaining your PowerEdge servers with the Dell OpenManage portfolio.

Outstanding server reliability
Take advantage of PowerEdge RAS features that help ensure fast, highly available service from your R420 server.
