Product Details

The Dell™ PowerEdge™ R905 was designed for architected performance and streamlined virtualization deployment. It’s fine-tuned to provide virtualization performance with an ideal formula of processor technology, memory capacity, and I/O scalability. Featuring up to 2x the memory and I/O scalability of the previous generation standard 4U 4-socket servers, the PowerEdge R905 helps remove the barriers to running memory and I/O-bound applications.

The PowerEdge R905 also allows to start migrating real virtual machines within a few clicks of a mouse, streamlining deployment in virtualized environments. Dell’s virtualization strategy is to help you manage your infrastructure with the tools you already have, which is why we work to deliver an integrated solution for managing physical and virtual infrastructures.
