PC Pro: Product Reviews: Dell PowerEdge 2900

 

The undoubted star of the new PowerEdge series, with superb fault tolerance and expansion options

A customer

 

New condition, exactly as I hoped since the ad said (new) .... (Half the time with these Items "New" means New to them, not hear! :-) ) Would and probably will buy from again.

Product Specifications

Through innovative hardware design, software commonality and continued focus on fewer system updates, Dell's 9th generation PowerEdge servers help reduce the complexity involved in managing data, whether you are a large enterprise or a small business. These servers are designed to a Dell -developed Behavioral Specification that defines consistent hardware layout and user interaction across all server models in this and future PowerEdge generations. Featuring the latest Intel Xeon processors, the 9th generation PowerEdge servers offer the power and performance you expect from Dell. The Dell PowerEdge 2900 server is designed to deliver exceptional performance in a tower chassis or a 5U rackable option with next generation Quad-Core Intel Xeon processors, Fully Buffered Dimm memory technology and Serial Attached SCSI hard drives. It also supports twelve memory slots for 48GB of memory capacity for memory-intense workloads and applications. And the TCP/IP Offload Engine functionality in the embedded gigabit NIC's helps further to improve CPU performance and utilization by moving the TCP/IP protocol processing to the NIC. The Dell PowerEdge 2900 server is built with flexibility in mind. It offers the widest variety of configuration options available in a Dell two-socket server. You can choose from tower or rack chassis options with hot plug SAS or SATA hard drives and several optical devices and tape products for up to 3.0TB of internal storage. What's more, the system features six I/O slots. And because Dell Remote Access Card (DRAC) and PERC 5/i integrated controller utilize dedicated daughtercard slots, all six I/O slots are available for expandability. You have the option of adding up to four dual embedded gigabit Network Interface Cards (NICs) and two dual channel storage interface devices providing incredible growth potential. With high availability features such as hot plug hard drives and redundant power supplies/fans, the Dell PowerEdge 2900 helps keep data dependably moving through your organization. It also provides support for multiple RAID options including integrated RAID with 256MB of battery-backed cache so you know that your valuable information is reliably accessible. The Dell PowerEdge 2900 server is equipped with a Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) that includes a complete set of tools that monitors server hardware, alerts you when server faults occur and enables basic remote operations. For environments with servers located in secure data centers or in sites with no IT staff, Dell offers an optional feature for PowerEdge servers, the Dell Remote Access Controller (DRAC). Operated through a Web-based graphic user interface, DRAC can enable remote access, monitoring, troubleshooting, repair and upgrades independent of the operating system status. Common software with the same family of PowerEdge 9th generation servers further helps simplify management. Plus, the Dell Behavioral Specification means one familiar platform for less complex deployment, management and serviceability as well as lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) over multiple generations of Dell PowerEdge 2900 PowerEdge servers.
