The rack-optimised, Intel-based, two-socket 1U Dell™ PowerEdge™ 1950 III server delivers the right combination of computing power and availability for organisations who seek rack density.

If you don’t have the space or need for a lot of internal drives or expansion cards, the general purpose PowerEdge 1950 III is an excellent choice with its dual-processor performance and high availability. Dell has updated this server with a host of features that help customers to optimise energy use, improve security and boost performance.

Versatile ultra-thin servers like this one are why Dell has sold 49% more high-performance computing (HPC) cluster servers than HP and 67% more than IBM6. The server is often found to be an ideal platform on which to run a web server. This multi-purpose server is equally well-suited when deployed singly to support enterprise applications; many find that it is ideal for running network, messaging, video streaming or remote access applications.

To customize your server today, talk to your account manager or visit For example, you have the freedom to choose either two high-performance 2.5” or two low-cost 3.5” hard drives depending on what you’ve decided to standardise on. Then choose from the industry’s widest variety of complementary hardware, software and external storage solutions.

Customers concerned with space are often also concerned with energy consumption. In many regions of the world, we offer a suite of services to help you optimise the design of your data centre. Regardless of whether you choose our services, you can trust that each server will be fully assembled and tested before we ship it directly to you.

To help conserve energy, which is good for your budget as well as the planet, Dell was the first Tier 1 server vendor to offer a line of power-optimised servers, including the best-selling PowerEdge™ Energy Smart 1950. Now we are beginning to migrate components from these servers into our mainstream servers. We also have introduced real-time power monitoring in the server (not the PDU) based on the PM bus industry standard.

As reliance on computerised information has grown, so have threats related to its security. The latest PowerEdge servers are Dell’s most secure servers yet. To protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data, Dell has included a variety of features, such as a Trusted Platform Module (TPM), more features within the lockable chassis and new RAID controller cards that protect against the failure of two drives.

We offer the latest proven technology, such as a pair of quad-core Intel® Xeon® processors and a variety of network interface options. Together, these components are designed to dramatically boost performance.

Dell knows that the management of technology often costs more than the technology itself. So we’ve worked to include many features to simplify the task. Whether you want to work locally using USB flash drives or remotely via Wake-on-LAN or iSCSI boot, these servers offer greatly improved flexibility. Finally, the PowerEdge Behavioral Specification simplifies management by enforcing consistency in user interaction and hardware layout.
