Dell PowerEdge R720 Servers
These pre-configured Dell PowerEdge R720 servers were recently removed from a professional data center environment. They are in excellent physical condition and have been tested and certified to be in good working order.
The PowerEdge R720 server is Dell's successor to the PowerEdge R710 server and the big brother to the 1U PowerEdge R620. It is a general-purpose, Intel-based, rackmount server designed with virtualization in mind by way of its myriad of high-performance options.
Designed with multi-core technology from the ground up, the 2U PowerEdge R720 finds its strengths in enterprise-level environments from high-end virtualization to SQL database applications. Building on the dependability and reliability of previous generations, the PowerEdge R720 finds its strengths in higher storage capacity, higher-end CPU options and 2.5x the memory capacity of the PowerEdge R710.
Like previous server generations, the PowerEdge R720 features a multitude of configuration options including up to two (2) Intel Xeon quad, six, eight, ten or twelve-core E5-2600 series processors, up to 768GB RAM and the ability to handle 6Gbps SAS, SATA and even solid-state drives in either 3.5" or 2.5" form factors. It also includes two dual-port embedded Gigabit NIC ports, optional dual redundant power supplies and seven (7) PCI Express riser slots. The PowerEdge R720 has the versatility to handle almost any datacenter task.
