PowerEdge C6100
Ultra-dense 2U shared infrastructure, the Dell PowerEdge C6100 supports up to 4 independent server nodes, providing capacity, performance and flexibility in a very dense eco-friendly package.

Designed with your needs in mind
The Dell PowerEdge C6100 is a hyperscale-inspired building block for high-performance cluster computing, Web 2.0 and cloud builders.

Find inside: Four independent nodes feature dual Intel® Xeon® 5500/5600 series quad- and hex-core processors. Slots include: 12 DDR3 memory, a x16 PCI Express generation 2 and a x8 PCI Express mezzanine slot. Includes dual-port embedded gigabit Ethernet, and an integrated IPMI 2.0 BMC with a dedicated RJ45 connection. Available with up to 12 x 3.5” or 24 x 2.5” hotplug SAS, SATA or SSD drives.

Along with that capacity and flexibility, the PowerEdge C6100 high-efficiency fans and power supplies are shared across nodes, saving space and weight to create 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 (HDDs). The result: an uncompromised, remarkably efficient server with 2x 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. It has front mounted 3.5” or 2.5” hot-plug hard drive options; up to four discrete 2-socket nodes; x 16 PCIe slot and x8 mezzanine slot expansion options; IPMI 2.0 BMC for remote management; and single node serviceability. Together, these options enable the PowerEdge C6100 to easily adapt to a wide variety of workloads.

Save energy and increase efficiency
By sharing power supplies, fans and backplanes, the PowerEdge C6100 effectively reduces the total amount of power consumed, increases energy efficiency and lowers operating costs

Select Samsung’s latest low-voltage high-density DDR3 memory and you can save more than 70% in energy over previous generation memory solutions.

PowerEdge C server line
The PowerEdge C6100 is part of Dell’s new hyperscale inspired PowerEdge C server line designed to bring the most computer power in the least amount of space with the least energy draw to lower operational costs. These servers have the right combination of what you need and nothing more.

These purpose-built servers are designed for high performance computing, Web 2.0, data analytics, and cloud building. They are best for rack deployments, large homogenous cloud/cluster application environments where the software stack provides primary platform availability and resiliency. The PowerEdge C server line does not come with features you don’t need like comprehensive systems management, or broad enterprise storage.

Global services and support
Dell is dedicated to simplifying IT, and Dell Services can help you manage the complexities of growing and maintaining your hyperscale, high performance and cloud computing environments. Dell’s broad portfolio of planning, implementation and maintenance services can help accelerate your IT initiatives and grow your business.
