The Dell PowerEdge R520 is a 2-socket 2U rackmount server that offers an excellent balance of processing power, storage capacity and redundancy. The R520's price for performance, configuration flexibility and room for growth make it highly attractive for consolidation and virtualization, web hosting, for use as a mid-size email server or as a general purpose server. The R520 is optimized to run a wide variety of basic applications, such as small and medium-sized e-mail server, Web server, small-scale hosting and database server. Consistent worldwide support makes it highly attractive to larger companies and organizations with distributed offices.

Designed for demanding workloads

The R520's extensive memory, storage, and I/O capabilities make it ideal for consolidation and virtualization. Offering the performance of two Intel Xeon E5-2400 processors and complemented by up to twelve DIMMs, up to four PCIe 3.0-enabled slots and up to eight internal hard drives, the R520 delivers balanced performance. With integrated redundancy, the R520 is a trusted platform for your business-critical databases and applications. The R520's dense form factor and innovative systems management allow you to save space and use IT administrator time efficiently.

Manage and protect your data

Features that protect your business data and keep your server up and running are essential. The R520's extensive storage capacity can be protected with hardware RAID controllers and software solutions to protect your data and ensure it is readily available. Built-in reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) features such as hot-plug hard drives and power supplies minimize the need to interrupt production work to take a server offline in the event of a component failure. Redundant and fail-safe hypervisors also add an additional layer of protection to virtualized environments.
