Dell PowerEdge R900
The Dell™ PowerEdge™ R900 is a tuned platform for data-demanding enterprise applications in a virtual environment.

The R900 offers Dell’s highest level of scalability and system availability with up to 256GB of memory to deliver an enhanced solution for RISC migration and data-demanding applications, all in an advanced energy efficient platform. With the PowerEdge R900, your data center can benefit from simplified operations, maximized value, and lowered costs.

Outstanding Virtualization Performance
Designed with powerful virtualization capabilities, the PowerEdge R900 provides outstanding performance in a four-socket server with Intel® Xeon® Six-Core Processors and up to 256 GB of memory. The R900’s Xeon 7400 series processors support VMware® vMotion™ for migration of data from one server to another with no interruption of the application, enabling load balancing in real time.

The R900 also streamlines deployment and provides ease-of-use in virtual infrastructures with factory-integrated hypervisors that can help simplify virtualization both now and in the future. Choose between VMware® ESX, Citrix® XenServer™ or Microsoft® Hyper-V™, and then power up the server and begin migration of virtual machines in a matter of minutes.

An Ideal Server for RISC Migration
With up to 24 cores and its increased memory, the R900 is the ideal solution for migration from expensive proprietary RISC/UNIX environments to an x86 industry standards based solution, freeing your data center from being locked into costly proprietary systems over prolonged periods of time. Migrating to an open x86 platform can reduce costs and improve overall management while providing a foundation that scales easily and affordably for future needs. The R900 offers further choice and flexibility by supporting Novell® SUSE® Linux®, Solaris™ and Windows® operating systems for migration from RISC environments. In addition, help drive down costs and complexity in your data center with Dell’s premium free systems management, Dell OpenManage™.
