Description

Dell PowerEdge R520 2U – Refurbished

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 virtualisation, web hosting, for use as a medium size mail server, or as a general-purpose server. The R520 is optimised 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 organisations with distributed offices.

Designed for demanding workloads
The extensive memory, storage, and I/O capacities of the R520 make it ideal for consolidation and virtualisation. 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 minimise 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 virtualised environments.

The PowerEdge server line
The PowerEdge family is engineered with the right combination of features and performance scalability to handle tough workloads for both large and small data center environments. The Dell OpenManage™ systems management portfolio includes integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller. This embedded feature helps IT administrators manage Dell servers in physical, virtual, local and remote environments, operating in-band or out-of-band, with or without a systems management software agent. OpenManage also integrates and connects to leading third-party systems management solutions you may already own, so you can maintain your single point of control and capitalise on your existing investment. OpenManage simplifies the lifecycle of deploying, updating, monitoring, and maintaining your Dell PowerEdge servers.
