“Premium” PowerEdge R920 Rack Server

Built for speed

Drive large databases, ERP, HPC and other demanding workloads with 4-socket performance, scalable memory and powerful IO. Create a dynamic infrastructure with flexible workloads from a complete virtualization platform. Build and deploy applications and websites onsite, in the cloud, or across both.

Unleash scalable performance

Perform more transactions in less time with the massive memory footprint and tremendous caching capacity of the PowerEdge R920, the most 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 PowerEdge R920 enables you to boost business-application effectiveness, deliver exceptional database performance and efficiently consolidate workloads with large-scale virtualization. The 4-socket, 4U server, with built-in expandability, allows you to grow easily and quickly with:

–          96 DIMM slots (up to 6TB1 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

As a powerful server for large enterprises, 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.
