Dell PowerEdge R510
The Dell™ PowerEdge™ R510 is a multipurpose 2-socket 2U high-capacity rack server offering an excellent balance of internal storage, redundancy, and value.

The Dell PowerEdge R510 was developed with a purposeful design, energy-optimized technology, the performance of the Intel® Xeon® processors and enterprise-class manageability. It is ideal for customers needing large amounts of internal storage capacity and/or seeking a multi-purpose core application server.

Right-Sized, Flexible Technology and Business Value
The PowerEdge R510 was designed to meet the needs of many IT environments with advanced systems management capabilities, a compact chassis, high-availability and redundancy features, and large amounts of internal storage capacity. The R510 is an excellent platform for core business applications such as Microsoft® SQL Server® and Microsoft® Exchange.

Dell aims to add value to your business by including the features you need for your specific IT environment. Our goal is to deliver value through tailored solutions based on industry standards, as well as innovative design of our servers. For example, the PowerEdge R510 solution (8HDD option) supports up to 10 times the mailbox size while delivering equivalent performance and significantly less power usage than the legacy HP ProLiant DL385 solution.

Purposeful Design
The PowerEdge R510 follows the 11th generation PowerEdge portfolio specifications and features the same system design commonality and reliability true to the entire portfolio. All 11th generation servers are designed to make the experience easier. We put all external ports, power supplies, LCD screens, and LED lights in the same location for familiar experience as well as easy installation and deployment. Robust, metal hard drive carriers and organized cabling are designed to help improve component access and airflow across the server.

In addition, the R510 is also available with 4, 8, or 12 hard drive chassis options, providing choice of the design and feature set that is most appropriate for your IT environment.

Energy-Optimized Technology
The PowerEdge R510 incorporates Energy Smart design using logical component layout of the internal components which aids with airflow direction, helping to keep the server cool. The PowerEdge R510 solution uses up to 50 percent less power than the legacy HP ProLiant DL385 solution.

Simplified Systems Management
With the optional advanced embedded systems management capabilities of Lifecycle Controller, Dell provides comprehensive enterprise-class manageability already on the motherboard. Lifecycle Controller is delivered as part of the optional iDRAC Express or iDRAC Enterprise in the PowerEdge R510. It helps to simplify administrator tasks by performing a comprehensive set of provisioning functions such as system deployment, system updates, hardware configuration and diagnostics from a single intuitive interface called Unified Server Configurator (USC) in a pre-OS environment. This helps eliminate the need to use and maintain multiple pieces of disparate CD/DVD media.

Also part of the Dell OpenManage™ portfolio is the Dell Management Console which is included with every Dell server and provides IT administrators with a consolidated console view of their IT infrastructure.

Dell Services
Dell Services can help reduce IT complexity, lower costs, and eliminate inefficiencies by making IT and business solutions work harder for you. The Dell Services team takes a holistic view of your needs and designs solutions for your environment and business objectives while leveraging proven delivery methods, local talent, and in-depth domain knowledge for the lowest TCO.
