Product Details

Dell PowerEdge C6320 gets up to 2x greater performance and improved energy efficiency with optimized compute, processors and memory for the most demanding high-performance computing and scale-out workloads. Features the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v3 product family and iDRAC8 with Lifecycle Controller.

High-performance computing workloads such as scientific simulations, seismic processing and data analytics rely heavily on compute performance, memory bandwidth and overall server efficiency to reduce processing time and data center costs. The next-generation Dell PowerEdge C6320 provides an optimized compute and storage platform for HPC and scale-out workloads with up to four independent two-socket servers with flexible 24 x 2.5” or 12 x 3.5” high-capacity storage in a compact 2U shared infrastructure platform.

Featuring the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v3 product family with up to 50% more cache over previous-generation processors to deliver performance enhancements while consuming 21% less power, so you can do more with less and get results faster. With up to 36 cores per node, dynamic drive assignment, dual-port Intel 82559ES 10GbE LOM, and embedded systems management automation with the iDRAC8 with Lifecycle Controller, the C6320 is a scale-out modular compute workhorse.

Features

Performance and efficiency
Build your high-performance clusters and scale-out solutions with PowerEdge C6320 servers, featuring:

  • Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600v3 product family with up to 18 cores and four memory channels, offering up to 50 percent more cores, 44% greater performance3 and 21% improved power efficiency4 over previous generation processors.
  • Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC8) with Lifecycle Controller, cost optimized in C6320, to provide stable, efficient server management in physical, virtual, local and remote environments.
  • Flexible 2.5" and 3.5" high-capacity drive configurations
  • 16 DIMM slots to tailor memory capacity (up to 512GB5) to meet your needs
  • DDR4 memory providing as much as 15 percent greater memory bandwidth and drawing up to 30 percent less power than DDR3 RAM

Maximum flexibility
Save space and meet changing workloads by providing the right mix of processor performance, node options and energy efficiency with up to four independent sleds (server nodes) and flexible HDD assignments in one 2U chassis.

  • Up to 36 cores per node, 144 core per chassis
  • Up to 24 x 2.5" or 12 x 3.5" SAS, SATA or SSD hot-plug drives per chassis
  • Dual hot-plug, high-efficiency 1400W and 1600W power supplies
  • Optional Integrated SATA DOM (64GB) boot device frees up valuable hard drive space for your data
  • One x16 PCIe 3.0 slot and one x8 PCIe 3.0 mezzanine slot per 1U sled
  • Integrated LOM: 2x 10GbE (SFP+)

Enhance your productivity
Easily manage your PowerEdge C6320 servers by automating routine lifecycle management tasks with technology from the Dell OpenManage portfolio, based on the agent-free iDRAC8 with embedded Lifecycle Controller, working alone or in conjunction with other Dell OpenManage components and third-party management tools, including:

  • OpenManage Essentials
  • Dell’s integrations for BMC BladeLogic
  • Microsoft System Center

These enable you to streamline operations within your existing IT management environment.

Easing your management tasks
The iDRAC with Lifecycle Controller offers a complete set of server management features – including configuration, OS deployment, firmware updates, health monitoring and maintenance – that work regardless of operating system state or the presence of a hypervisor.

  • Agent free - Monitor basic memory, CPU and I/O performance and establish custom alert thresholds to alert through SNMP, Racadm or WSman – all without OS agents or any impact on OS or server components.
  • Lifecycle Controller - Provide local deployment and simplified serviceability with a tool that integrates with Dell OpenManage Essentials and third party consoles.
  • Zero touch deployment and provisioning - Auto-configure servers, and optionally schedule health checks with zero-touch configuration changes (requires iDRAC Enterprise Edition).

Hyperscale environments
Harness the C6320’s hyperscale capabilities for demanding performance and workload-intensive environments.

  • HPC - Implement high-performance, low-latency, massively parallel computing for dense clusters that need high scalability with maximum performance per U.
  • Analytics and big data - Support large-scale data analysis with a maximum compute-density footprint and the ability to tailor server configurations to changing workloads.
  • Cloud - Substantial scalability and density help allow cloud and hosting providers reduce capital expenses and maximize operational performance per sq. ft./per watt.
  • Web 2.0 - Match your server infrastructure to large web-hosting workloads and help eliminate over-provisioning with high scalability and flexible rapid-configuration options.
