Product Details

The PowerEdge R920, is a powerful rack server in the PowerEdge portfolio. It introduces to the PowerEdge lineup the next generation of Intel® Xeon® processor E7 v2 product family, which combines up to 15 cores per processor with a large memory capacity, high-performing threads and hardware-based advanced reliability features designed to:

  • Process and analyze large amounts of data in real time
  • Deliver real-time business intelligence
  • Drive faster decision making
  • Increase productivity and profitability

The R920 supports centralized business applications, such as customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) with critical databases, and can even provide consolidation of these performance-sensitive applications using large-scale virtualization. It is ideal for mission-critical environments where performance, expandability and reliability are indispensable.

The R920 optionally supports a dual-PERC configuration, which enables more flexible PERC usage, for example, dedicating the highest IO requirements to one PERC that leverages higher performance SSDs while the other PERC can control lower-priority workloads using the HDD storage.

Features

The 4-socket, 4U server, with built-in expandability, allows to grow easily and quickly with:

  • 96 DIMM slots (up to 6TB2 RAM) for in-memory databases and large-scale virtualization
  • Up to 10 PCIe Gen3/Gen2 slots to create a highly flexible infrastructure and permit large enterprise SAN environments
  • Up to 24 internal drives (4- to 24-drive options) with fast 12Gbps SAS HDDs and up to eight Express Flash SSDs for tiered, high-speed data access

Keep your data center running in good condition with the enhanced reliability features of the PowerEdge R920, including:

  • Intel Run Sure technology that helps improve system diagnostic and predictive failure analysis to reduce service costs and increase system uptime
  • Dell Fault Resilient Memory that provides a protected hypervisor memory zone for Dual SD redundant hypervisor for highly available failsafe virtualization
  • Redundant hot-plug power supply units and fans

Managing R920 servers is simplified with intelligent, hardware-driven management that features:

  • Extensive power management
  • Integration into virtual consoles
  • Automation for parts replacement
