The PowerEdge R520 offers two-socket performance and features a balanced performance to storage ratio for data-intensive applications. The 12th generation R520 has a low-profile 2u design that supports Intel Xeon v2 processors, DDR3 memory modules, and 4 PCI slots for attaching NICs, and storage. This system is designed for a variety of different workloads including consolidation and virtualization, database applications, business analytics, web serving and hosting, and other applications.
Intel Xeon E5-2400 and E5-2400 v2 processors support both DDR3 memory and PCIe 3.0 technology for increased reliability and availability.
Administrators can instal up to 12 DDR3 DIMM modules in a two processor configuration. That is four more memory slots than the PowerEdge R510, and bumps the memory capacity to 384GB. Both Registered (RDIMM) and unbuffered (UDIMM) DDR3 memory modules are supported.
Up to 8 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch hot-plug SAS/SATA SSDs can be installed in the system, which is less than the R510 but with increased storage capacities you won’t notice the difference.
Four PCIe 3.0 slots are available in the two processor configuration.
OpenManage Essentials and iDRAC7 with Lifecycle controller are embedded features on the PowerEdge R520.
