Dell™ PowerEdge™ 6950 Server
Helping to reduce complexity while delivering outstanding performance per watt, the AMD-based Dell PowerEdge 6950 quad-socket server is the ideal platform for demanding enterprise applications.

Conquer Complexity
The PowerEdge 6950 rack-dense 4U server delivers exceptional performance with impressive low power consumption helping organisations address increasing datacentre complexity. Featuring quad-socket, dual-core AMD Opteron™ processing power, it provides high performance scalability. The design of the system provides for seamless upgrades from dual-core to quadcore within the same thermal envelope. The PowerEdge 6950 server is built to handle demanding enterprise applications without stressing datacentre resources making it perfect for large databases, server consolidation, virtualisation and migrations from costly RISC-based systems.

With Dell 9th generation server features, including hardware consistency and image management, the PowerEdge 6950 server reduces complexity. Enhanced systems management tools, like OpenManage 5 and DRAC5, simplify management and provide flexibility, security and control. Plus, the server delivers standards-based integration with industry-standard systems management interfaces like Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IMPI) 2.0. The PowerEdge 6950 server also includes deployment and change management solutions integrated with Microsoft® , Altiris® and Novell® . Consequently, IT professionals can spend less time on day-to-day server management and more time on mission critical projects.

Outstanding Performance/Watt
The PowerEdge 6950 server leverages the latest high performance technologies for quad-socket servers including 64-bit AMD Opteron 8200 series dual-core processors and power efficient DDR2 memory. PCI-Express I/O offers high performance Ethernet, RAID, Infiniband and Fibre Channel interconnect while protecting technology investments. Additionally, SAS hard drives provide better performance by increasing data transmission through serialisation. The enabled TCP/IP Offload Engine (TOE) can offload TCP/IP traffic from the host processor to an integrated NIC processor to help improve server performance. What’s more, this impressive performance comes with low power consumption to make the most of datacentre resources and helps reduce heat output.

Reliable Business Relevant Solutions
The PowerEdge 6950 server is designed to be part of a comprehensive solution to relevant business challenges. Engineered to keep critical, enterprise applications running around the clock, the server offers availability and reliability. It is fully tested and certified by Dell and leading operating system and application providers to ensure compatibility in clustered solutions. Additionally, the PowerEdge 6950 server is ideal for consolidation. Certified with Dell/ EMC storage and VMware, you can confidently consolidate many small servers onto a large, powerful platform that contains headroom for future growth.

Providing business-ready technologies, services and solutions, Dell can design and implement industry-standard infrastructures that help minimise expenses and disruptions. Combined with quality Dell hardware, services such as Data Centre Environment Assessment, Consolidation, Migration and Virtualisation along with Dell Enterprise Support Services can help you do more with less.
