Power and Stability for Business-Critical Applications

Standards-based Monitoring

Monitoring capabilities for power sensitive and virtual environments are available in a single, easy-to-use interface with the Dell OpenManageTM  suite of management tools. Because key data center management capabilities shouldn’t be a costly endeavour, Dell is returning power and control of the datacenter to IT professionals without the premiums typically charged. Now, complete critical tasks in seconds, not hours. Dell will be first in the industry to deliver critical inline hard drive firmware updates – no downtime required.

Factory-Tested, Certified Solution

Simplify the deployment process by implementing the PowerEdge R900 as part of an Enterprise solution that was tested by Dell and industry leading hardware and software partners such as EMC® , Microsoft® , RedHat® , Novell® , Oracle®  , SAP®  and VMware® .
Simplified Management

Enhanced Technology

Designed to address information security concerns, the PowerEdge R900 provides security enhancing features such as the industry standard and software enabled Trusted Platform Module (TPM), a locked-down internal USB port and a chassis intrusion sensor to help organisations manage security risks.

Availability Without Compromise

By providing hot-plug redundant power supplies and hard drives, plus multiple RAID options including support for RAID 6, the PowerEdge R900 addresses the need for high availability without sacrificing expandability. Redundant NICs and redundant cooling fans help keep the servers running smoothly.

Flexibility through Standardisation

Dell’s Advanced Computing behavioral specification allows for easy deployment. System design, component layouts and labelling similar to previous-generation Dell PowerEdge Servers reduce the learning curve as new server platforms are added to the IT environment. Enjoy easy serviceability with tool-less chassis access and ‘one click’ accessibility to most key internal components.
