InfoWorld review: Dell R815 server makes heavy virtualization light on the wallet


There's something different about watching a server process list spanning 48 logical CPUs. It invariably engenders a feeling of raw power, not because each CPU is fast but simply because there are so many of them. Those 48 logical processors show you...

While the maximum number of cores you can fit into an R815 is 48, you can opt for less expensive CPUs in the AMD Opteron 6100-series line and run with two or four eight-core CPUs. At the low end, this means you can pick up an R815 with four eight-core,...

Dell PowerEdge R815


Dell is the first blue chip to deliver a quad socket server using AMD's new Bulldozer architecture. It looks like good value, so read Dave Mitchell's review to see if it moves the earth.

With its quartet of 16-core Opteron 6200s and high memory capacity, the PowerEdge R815 is a particularly good candidate for virtualisation and as a server consolidation platform. It packs a lot of useful features into its compact 2U chassis, has a high...

Dell PowerEdge R815 review


Dell is first to market with a quad socket Opteron 6100 server. It looks very affordable and in this review we see whether it's the ideal 4P platform for SMBs.

As the first 4P Opteron 6100 server to market, Dell’s new PowerEdge R815 sets a high standard for the rest to follow. Compared with the latest Xeon 7500 systems, the R815 and its quartet of 12-Core Opterons makes for a far more cost-effective option...
