What is the Dell PowerEdge R220 1U?

The Dell PowerEdge 1U follows from the R210 and R210 II series of servers which went popular particularly for tasks require low to moderate processing power. The device isn’t meant for large virtualization rather is used in SMB racks and works with dedicated hosting. Since the server is widely in use you can find support and spares pretty easily for it.

Key Features of the Server

Despite the small size of the server, there are four fans which adequately maintain airflow inside the device. This is coupled with a passive heatsink giving it a well laid out cooling mechanism.

The server comes with four RAM slots that allow for up to 32GB and a single PCIe expansion slot. The chassis also provides space of networking and storage cards that should be enough to cover up for most users.

Additionally, the server has numerous ports in the back that include legacy VGA and serial ports along with two USB 3.0 ports that allow for connecting to newer systems. I/O USB and VGA port on the front also allow for use with KVM carts much easier in datacenters.

Moreover, there are two gigabit ethernet ports that are Broadcom based. If you aren’t someone who would use NAS storage, the PowerEdge R220 1U provides an eSATA port for external storage expansion.

Management and Deployment

While cable management can get messy in datacenters, the device is equipped with a cable management clip on the rear. Usage and maintenance of the server is also generally easier because mounting and dismounting equipment doesn’t require tools. The hard drive carrier for instance can be released by pulling a pin and it slides out. Although it’s not for hot swap, it still makes your life easier.
An additional touch is the latching cable guide which further makes cable management easier. Lastly, racking the server also gets easier given the compact design of the device.


In terms of performance, the XEON E3 1220 and 1280 V3 CPU rank fairly well on a number of tests that were carried out. The E3 1280 outperforms older generation 6 core/12 thread devices. Compression also goes along pretty well as compared to older models even those with twice as many cores.
Moreover, power consumption turns out to be highly competitive given that it generally wouldn’t consume more than 118W even on multi-threaded usage.

Remote Management

Remote management also gets easier with the device because DELL’s OpenManage platform allows management of multiple servers from a single interface making things fairly simple.

Should You Buy a Refurbished Server?

Here at KahnServers, we test and verify your refurbished server before shipping and each server from us comes with a one-year RTB warranty.

With new servers the rate of depreciation is just not worth it and the room for scalability is also limited due to already spending thousands to deploy it. Refurbished servers are the better option due to the room for scalability, meaning you can always upgrade components without it being too heavy on the pocket and also the rate of depreciation is relatively lower than new servers.
