Dell PowerEdge R300
The Dell™ PowerEdge™ R300 is a dependable space-saving server that provides exceptional reliability, availability, and performance with single-socket Intel processors, more memory and internal storage.

The Dell PowerEdge R300 is a single-socket, rack-dense server which provides exceptional reliability, availability and performance. The PowerEdge R300 is designed to provide maximum energy efficiency and leading performance per watt.

Exceptional Performance & Leading Energy Efficiency
The PowerEdge R300 features an advanced one-socket chipset and processors specifically designed for excellent performance and availability. With Intel® quad-core processing and up to 24 GB of memory — three times the capacity of competitive 1-socket x86 servers — the R300 provides stable performance for memory-intensive applications.

Energy efficiency is a fundamental design criterion for all PowerEdge servers. With the introduction of the PowerEdge R300, Dell is bringing this feature to the entry level rack server market. The low-voltage processor offered on PowerEdge R300 is designed to provide additional gains in both power efficiency and performance per watt.

Trusted Reliability & Security
With high-availability features like hot-plug hard drives and redundant power supplies, the PowerEdge R300 helps prevent the loss of data and productivity. And with authentication through an array of diagnostic tests prior to shipping, it’s designed to increase uptime and boost productivity from the moment you switch it on.

Recognizing the importance of information security, the PowerEdge R300 is designed to help ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data. Standard features include a locked-down internal USB port, chassis intrusion switch, locking bezels and a built-in Trusted Platform Module (TPM) which enables system authentication, assists with encryption and helps prevent tampering.

Built-in Scalability
Other key features include two PCI Express slots and dual embedded Gigabit NICs, two non 3.5-inch SATA or SAS hard drives (option for hot-plug or non-plug), optional redundant power supply, optional remote management, and optional RAID, which make it ideal for handling a variety of business tasks. These include web hosting, video streaming, file/print server for SMB (Small and Medium Business) where office space is limited or as a compute node in a HPCC (High Performance Computing Cluster) application.
