The PowerEdge™ C5220 is a highly serviceable, scale-out, hyperefficient microserver which offers increased density to help save cost, energy, rack space and cabling.
The PowerEdge™ C5220 packs up to 12 microservers in a 3U PowerEdge™ C5000 chassis, sharing power and cooling resources and using only a fraction of the cooling fans compared to a stack of 1U servers.
With up to 12 server nodes, the 3U PowerEdge™ C5000 chassis has four times the density of three traditional single-socket 1U servers stacked together, enabling more computing power per U of rack space.
Power supplies, interconnect and servers are all cold-aisle accessible, giving you the flexibility to raise the temperature of your data center and thus lower cooling costs.
Each independent PowerEdge™ C5220 hot-plug server is mounted on a small sled that slides vertically into the 3U PowerEdge™ C5000 chassis. The compact system is ideal for:
