Enterprise Systems

The Dell PowerEdge Server Family is comprised of a multitude of general-purpose and solution specific servers ranging from the low complexity, very affordable PowerEdge 500SC to the high-end PowerEdge 8450. Whether you are a small business that needs shared Internet access and basic file/print, or you are a Fortune 500 company running complex ERP applications, we are confident that we can find a PowerEdge server that fits just right.

Because of the distinct needs of smaller organizations and large corporations or institutions, we have segmented the PowerEdge server line. By doing so, we will be even more effective at delivering quality products that are relevant to the needs of our diverse customer set.

PowerEdge Server Line Larger organizations or those requiring more complex server configurations will find the PowerEdge server line is the best fit for their needs. Building on the long tradition of successful PowerEdge servers, Dell will continue to design high performance and high availability features and services into tower and rack dense systems that are reasonably priced.

PowerEdge SC Server Line The PowerEdge SC Value Tower line focuses on technologies, price points and services that are needed by typical small businesses and low-complexity computing environments. These servers are designed to be more affordable and less complex than the traditional PowerEdge line.

Combining a new level of performance

with availability and configuration

flexibility in a space saving 2U chassis,

the Dell PowerEdge 2650 delivers

exceptional, cost-efficient computing

power for a variety of front-end and

mid-tier server workloads.

Performance The Dell PowerEdge 2650 server is architecturally balanced to maximize processing speeds as well as provide high data input/output (I/O) and memory bandwidth. Featuring dual Intel ® Xeon processors with a 400MHz front side bus, the server is well suited for compute- and memory-intensive applications. Plus, it operates on the ServerWorks ® Grand Champion-LE (GC-LE) chipset that provides an incredible 3.2GB/s of memory bandwidth and up to 3.4GB/s of throughput on a five PCI bus segment architecture.

The PowerEdge 2650 also incorporates new features such as high bandwidth PCI-X slots, dual Gigabit network interface cards (NICs) as well as high-speed double data rate (DDR) memory. In addition, the PowerEdge server offers an embedded dual channel Ultra3 (U160) SCSI controller that enables you to separate disk subsystems for different purposes on up to five internal SCSI drives. All of which help to improve speed and performance and maximize the capabilities of your server.

Availability Through a variety of availability features, the PowerEdge 2650 is designed to maximize server uptime. The server offers error-correcting code (ECC) SDRAM memory with ChipKill technology, and Spare Bank support to help withstand errors and avoid costly downtime. In addition, the general-purpose server features optional embedded Ultra3 (U160) RAID with 128MB of battery-backed cache that allows data to be written to a disk even in the event of power outage. Hot-plug SCSI hard drives, hot-plug redundant power supplies and hot-plug cooling fans, minimize the need to power the server down when fixing components. And the PowerEdge 2650 features dual embedded Gigabit NICs that provide failover support and help maximize I/O throughput.

Configuration Flexibility and Expandability The rack-optimized PowerEdge 2650 delivers a great balance of expandability and rack density. With three open PCI-X slots and numerous embedded features, you can deploy the PowerEdge 2650 in a configuration that supports a wide range of workloads in a data center. It provides SDRAM memory capabilities from 256MB up to 6GB to meet your requirements now and the six DIMM slots offer you the capacity to grow in the future. Plus, the chipset supports 2:1 memory interleaving for reduced memory latency. The split backplane design also offers configuration flexibility. For instance, you can configure two hard drives to mirror the operating system for redundancy and use the remaining three drives in a RAID 5 configuration for storing data.

Furthermore, its five hot-plug SCSI hard drives allow up to 365GB 1 of internal storage. And three I/O slots expand functionality to beyond what is supported with the embedded feature set.

to beyond what is supported with the embedded feature set. PowerEdge 2650 Manageability and Serviceability The

PowerEdge 2650

Manageability and Serviceability The PowerEdge 2650 incorporates special design features that make the server easy to deploy, service and manage remotely. It consists of a cable-less motherboard design that results in improved airflow for better temperature control and simplified serviceability. The tool-less chassis enables easy access to internal components for quick maintenance. In addition, the new Embedded Remote Access (ERA) management feature enables users to access, diagnose and remotely manage a server regardless of its state. The active, backlit Dell logo on the bezel and the front mounted LCD display are also designed to accelerate diagnosis and system repair through the use of light indicators and text messaging.

The PowerEdge 2650 full-featured server delivers exceptional performance, bandwidth and flexibility in a slim chassis to cost effectively manage a variety of front-end and mid-tier workloads.
