Dell PowerEdge C6100 Server - Rackmount - Refurbished

With four two-socket server nodes in a 2U rack chassis, the PowerEdge™ C6100 is a hyperscale-inspired building block for high-performance cluster computing, Web 2.0 environments and cloud builders.

    * Twice the density of traditional 1U servers without sacrificing features such as hotplug hard-drive flexibility

    * Shared infrastructure uses less floor space, power and cooling

    * Service individual nodes as needed to increase uptime by up to 75 percent

Ultra-Dense, Flexible and Efficient Computing

The PowerEdge C6100 provides capacity, performance and flexibility in a very dense package. The highly-efficient 2U rack chassis supports up to 12 x 3.5” or 24 x 2.5” hot-plug SAS, SATA or SSD hard drives.

In addition to the 92% efficient hot-plug redundant power supplies, the PowerEdge C6100 shared infrastructure saves space and weight, producing one of the most eco-friendly designs yet.

Best-in-Class Density Without Sacrifice

Increasing density shouldn't mean sacrificing critical features such as single-node serviceability and hot-plug hard-drive flexibility.

With four 2-socket server nodes in a 2U rack chassis, the PowerEdge C6100 offers maximum density with the convenience of both single-node serviceability and hot-plug 2.5" and 3.5" hard-disk drives. The result: an uncompromised, remarkably efficient server with twice the density capability of traditional 1U servers.

Ultimate Flexibility in a Standard 2U Chassis

The PowerEdge C6100 has the specialized features you need to run your hyperscale applications, while providing flexibility with open standards. The PowerEdge C6100 offers a number of flexible features in its standard 2U rack chassis, including:

    * Front-mounted 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch hot-plug hard drives

    * Up to four discrete 2-socket nodes

    * x16 PCIe slot and x8 mezzanine slots

    * Hot-plug redundant power supplies

    * Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) 2.0 dedicated management

Save Power & Increase Efficiency

By sharing power supplies, fans and backplanes, the PowerEdge C6100 effectively reduces the total amount of power consumed for energy efficiency and lower operating costs.
