The Dell PoweEdge R815 is a four-socket 2U rack server that offers performance, value, and extreme memory density to support a wide range of applications.
Pricing for pre-configured models starting at:
Dell PowerEdge R815 server supports four AMD CPUs, which apparently offer a lower entry price than comparable servers running Intel Xeon CPUs while still delivering comparable performance and resiliency.
Dell's PowerEdge R815 rack server powered by two or four AMD Opteron 6100, 6200, or 6300 series processors using an AMD chipset. The AMD processors offer more cores than the Intel processors supported on the R810 track server and supports comparable memory, and hard drives at a more attractive price point.
DDR3 memory both Registered DIMMS (RDIMM) and unbuffered DIMMs (UDIMM) are supported on the R815 in four channels per processor, with each processor supporting eight memory modules. In a four processor configuration with all 32 memory slots loaded with 32GB registered DIMMS the system will support up to 1TB of memory, same as that supported on the PowerEdge R810. Memory Sparing is supported but that will halve your available memory to 512GB.
The R815 has six storage bays up front to support 2.5-inch SAS, SATA hot-swap HDDs and SSDs depending on your need for storage or performance. The maximum internal storage is listed at 3TB.
Six PCIe slots are supported on the system board, two of which are required to support the PCI riser cards. The risers install in slots three and four respectively, leaving four PCIe slots total. Administrators have options for additional NICs, LOMs, and HD controllers. There are several PERC storage and RAID controllers that are supported on the system. Storage controllers plug into the dedicated SAS slot on Riser1. The R815 features two embedded Broadcom 5709C dual-port LAN controllers.
Management of the system is handled by Dell's OpenManage and iDRAC6 providing on-site and remote access with an updated license key. An integrated video subsystem is integral to the iDRAC6 and supports only 2D graphics.'
Dell's PowerEdge R815 is an excellent addition to space constrained data centers featuring four processors, dense memory, and substantial storage-all in a 2U for factor. AMD processors and chipset also provides a lower cost to performance ratio when compared to PowerEdge servers powered by Intel Xeon processors.
