Dell PowerEdge R815
The Dell™ PowerEdge™ R815 is a 4-socket rack server offering the latest AMD Opteron™ processors with up to 48 processor cores and an excellent balance of advanced manageability, memory scalability, I/O, and redundancy in a space-saving 2U form factor.

Performance-Driven Technology
Purpose-built to provide a reliable foundation and balanced with the latest AMD Opteron processor technology optimized for stability, consistency, and outstanding price for performance, the Dell PowerEdge R815 is designed from the ground up for value and performance. It is an ideal platform for customers looking to maximize data center space and budget.

Purpose-Built for Reliability
We have listened to our customers and built servers endowed with reliability, availability, and quality. Dell’s reliability promise is simple: Deliver quality products that stand the test of time.

From the robust, metal hard drive carriers and organized cabling to the interactive LCD screen, dual SD hypervisor modules, and embedded diagnostics, all components are purposefully designed and built to improve server reliability and usability. Dell has developed its reliability processes by:

  • Employing robust validation and testing processes for durable product design
  • Verifying each supplier meets stringent quality standards
  • Implementing a “one-touch” build process to ensure that one person is responsible for the entire server build, resulting in greater quality control
  • Ensuring that every fully configured Dell server is tested (and re-tested) before it leaves the factory
  • Introducing Unified Server Configurator (USC) which offers embedded and persistent diagnostics with no media required to help minimize downtime
  • Utilizing robust and durable industrial materials to enable long product lifecycles
  • Improving redundancy generation over generation by adding features such as dual internal failsafe SD modules to provide failover at the hypervisor level.

In addition to these quality measures, all 11th Generation servers are designed with external ports, power supplies, and LED lights or LCD screens in the same location for a more efficient and familiar user experience, as well as easy installation and deployment.

Efficient Infrastructure
Limitations on space, power, and cooling capacity combined with rising energy costs present enormous challenges for IT. Our newest Dell PowerEdge servers are made to deliver energy efficiency as a design standard while helping to meet the performance and budget goals your infrastructure requires. Energy-efficient system design built with Energy Smart technologies such as power capping, power inventory, and power budgeting help to better manage power within your specific environment.

Included in the PowerEdge R815 chassis are efficient fans, which spin in accordance with server workload demands. In addition, the internal shrouding and logical layout of the internal components aids with airflow direction, helping to keep the server cool. The PowerEdge R815 also includes power-management features such as volt regulators, power regulating processors, and an interactive LCD screen for access to power consumption information.

Intelligent, Connected Systems Management
The Dell Lifecycle Controller (an integrated chip) is the engine for advanced embedded management that is delivered as part of the iDRAC6 Express or optional iDRAC6 Enterprise in the PowerEdge R815. It is accessed through a single console called the Unified Server Configurator. Administrators can simplify tasks by performing a complete set of provisioning functions such as system deployment, system updates, hardware configuration, and diagnostics in the pre-OS environment. This avoids the need to use and maintain multiple pieces of disparate CD/DVD media. The PowerEdge R815 also features an interactive LCD screen positioned on the front of the server for ease of monitoring.

Also part of Dell OpenManage™ systems management portfolio is the Dell Management Console, which ships standard with every Dell server and provides IT managers with a consolidated view of their entire 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.
