The Dell PowerEdge R820 server is a compute-intensive performance platform with highly scalable memory and impressive I/O capabilities to match. Built to run complex workloads using its highly scalable memory, I/O capacity and flexible network options. Designed to excel at running a wide range of virtualisation environments and applications for both mid-size and large enterprises, the 2U rack server is powered by quad Intel Xeon E5-4600 series processors and can readily handle very demanding, mission critical workloads like Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), data warehousing, e-commerce, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), databases and data node High Performance Computing (HPC.)

Quad-CPU performance

This PowerEdge R820 server features sockets for four 8-core Intel Xeon E5-4620 processors running at 2.20GHz, offering a powerful 8.80GHz combined processing power. The E5 series of processors were designed for architecting next-generation data centres and delivering versatility across diverse workloads, making them ideal for data-heavy use. The server also comes with 128GB DDR3 memory, with the opportunity to upgrade to a maximum capacity of 1.5TB across 48 DIMM slots, and supports up to eight 2.5 inch (SFF) SAS, SATA or SSD drives totalling 16TB storage.

Control and flexibility

The server comes fitted with a standard integrated network controller, but other dual and quad port NICs are available from Broadcom or Intel up to 2GbE. The PowerEdge H710 RAID Controller (PERC) offers unrivalled I/O performance for database applications, achieving significant performance gains in hard-drive based server environments and taking full advantage of the unsurpassed performance and enterprise-class reliability of SSDs. Other connectivity is provided by seven PCI-E slots and two Intel QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) links, whilst optional hot-plug, front-access PCI-E SSDs (max. 4) enable performance enhancing in-box storage tiering. The PowerEdge R820 is powered by twin Platinum efficiency 750W PSUs, offering a great combination of power and energy saving.

Dell PowerEdge R820 power consumption
The server includes a pair of hot-plug 1100W power supplies and Dell also offers 750W and 1100W DC versions. The R820 hits the spot for power consumption as our tests showed it to be undemanding.

With Windows Server 2008 R2 in idle, we measured a draw of 164W. With the SiSoft Sandra benchmarking app punishing all 48 logical cores, this only rose to 365W. Stacking this up against a Xeon E7 system puts it firmly into perspective. Fujitsu’s RX600 S6 and its quartet of 10-core 2GHz E7-4850 Xeons pulling 427W in idle and a hefty 760W under load.

How long do Dell servers last?
The typical lifespan of your average server should be about three to five years, depending on how they’re used; however, you will want to pay close attention to the server’s software. When server software ages out, it becomes incredibly difficult to properly support and service the equipment itself.
