Dell PowerEdge R520 CTO Rack Server Product Description

A powerful, 2-socket rack server, the Dell PowerEdge R520 delivers balanced performance and storage expandability for data-intensive applications.

PowerEdge R520

  • Up to 12 DIMMs with RAS
  • PCIe 3.0-enabled expansion slots
  • 8 x 3.5-inch drive bays with LCD diagnostic
  • Powered by Intel Xeon E5-2400 processors

The Dell PowerEdge R520 is a 2-socket, 2U rack-mount server offering an excellent balance of processing power, storage capacity, and redundancy. The R520’s price per performance, configuration flexibility, and headroom for growth make it highly appealing for consolidation and virtualization, web hosting, for use as a mediumsize mail server, or as a general-purpose server. The R520 is optimized for running a wide range of core applications, such as small-medium mail server, web server, small-scale hosting, and database server. Consistent worldwide support makes it highly appealing to larger businesses and organizations with distributed offices.

Designed for demanding workloads

The extensive memory, storage, and I/O capacities of the R520 make it ideal for consolidation and virtualization. Delivering the performance of two Intel Xeon E5-2400 processors and complemented by up to twelve DIMMs, up to four PCIe 3.0-enabled slots and up to eight internal hard drives, the R520 delivers balanced performance. With built-in redundancy, the R520 is a trustworthy platform for your business-critical databases and applications. The dense form factor and innovative systems management of the R520 allow you to save space and to use your IT administrator’s time efficiently.

Manage and secure your data

Features that protect your business data and keep the server running are essential. The extensive storage capacity of the R520 can be protected with both hardware RAID controllers and software solutions to protect your data and ensure that it is readily available. Built-in reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) features such as hot-pluggable hard drives and power supplies minimize the need to disrupt production work to take a server offline in the event of a component failure. Redundant, failsafe hypervisors also add an additional layer of protection for virtualized environments.
