Right Sized, Flexible Technology and Enhanced Business Value
The PowerEdge R210 was designed to meet the needs of many IT environments. With the optional advanced systems management capabilities of Lifecycle Controller, Dell is bringing comprehensive enterprise-class manageability into the 1-socket space.
In addition, the R210 features a short 15.5 inch chassis to allow for flexible deployment almost anywhere. Built with cost effective RAID options to further protect your valuable data, the PowerEdge R210 is the ideal entry 1-socket 1U rack for small businesses and larger offices needing flexibility and manageability in a very small chassis.
Dell aims to add value to your business by including the features you need without a lot of the unnecessary extras. Our goal is to deliver value through tailored solutions based on industry standards, as well as purposeful, innovative design.
The PowerEgde R210 follows the 11th Generation portfolio behavioral specifications and features the same system design commonality and reliability true to the entire portfolio. All 11th Generation servers are built to make the user experience easier.
We put all external ports, power supplies and LED lights in the same location for familiar user experience, as well as, easy installation and deployment.
Robust, metal hard drive carriers and organized cabling are designed to improve component access and airflow across the server.
The PowerEdge R210’s purposeful design also provides quiet acoustics and a LED light display positioned on the front of the server for ease of monitoring.
Energy Smart design is a key part of the PowerEdge R210’s purposeful design. Utilizing a low 250-watt power supply, the PowerEdge R210 provides the smallest power footprint within the 11th-generation PowerEdge server portfolio.
Also included in the R210 are low-flow fans — designed to spin faster in accordance with server workload demands and help reduce unnecessary noise when possible. In addition, the logical component layout aids in airflow direction, helping to keep the server cool.
Simplified Systems Management
The Lifecycle Controller is the engine for advanced embedded management and is delivered as part of the optional iDRAC Express or iDRAC Enterprise in the PowerEdge R210.
The Lifecycle Controller is a chip that is integrated on the server. It helps to simplify administrator tasks by performing a complete set of provisioning functions such as system deployment, system updates, hardware configuration and diagnostics from a single intuitive interface called Unified Server Configurator(USC) in a pre-OS environment. This eliminates the need to use and maintain multiple pieces of disparate CD/DVD media.
Also part of Dell’s Open Manage™ portfolio is the Dell Management Console which is included with every Dell server and provides IT administrators with a consolidated console view of their IT infrastructure.
