highly serviceable chassis. provide room for additional functionality and future expansion.

One of the key features of the PowerEdge 2500 is the ServerWorks® High-End SuperLite (HE-SL) chipset that
supports tri-peer PCI architecture. This enables the server to support three separate bus segments, giving you the
flexibility to segment your high performance PCI cards on two high-speed 64-bit/66MHz busses and lower
performance PCI cards on slower busses for enhanced performance. This architecture also reduces the risk for
system latency associated with bus saturation.

With two-way memory interleaving capabilities, the HE-SL chipset can support twice the peak memory bandwidth
of the previous generation of Serverworks LE-based servers. The PowerEdge 2500 supports set combining, a
chipset feature that sees four same-sized DIMMs as one unit to reduce latency penalties. By incorporating six
DIMM slots, the server ensures two slots are still available for future memory additions even when you take
advantage of set combining.

Availability
The embedded PERC3/Di RAID controller option on the PowerEdge 2500 provides exceptional availability and
makes this system one of the more competitive values in the industry. This embedded high-performance Ultra3
(U160) SCSI solution includes dual RAID channels to help ensure that at least one channel is available at all times.
It also supports write-back caching with a battery backup to protect the cache memory’s content in the event of a
power outage.

The PowerEdge 2500 helps to ensure maximum uptime through availability features such as Error Correction Code
memory and redundant AC power. Additionally, the hot-plug hard drives and hot-plug and redundant fans allow
you to replace components quickly without shutting down the system. The server also includes clustering
capabilities for high fault tolerance.

Easy to Service
Tool-less components and the chassis design enable easy serviceability, whether accessing the server in a rack or
as a stand-alone tower. Because tools are not needed to remove the side-panel cover, access to system
components is quick and easy. The hard drives and hot-plug power are front loading and equally easy to access
by simply opening the hinged front bezel.

The PowerEdge 2500 interior also incorporates tool-less installation and serviceablity. Flip lock retainers secure
I/O cards to the PCI expansion slots, while drives and other media snap easily in place. All peripheral devices,
power supplies, fans, hard drives and memory do not require tools.

More Storage Options


In addition to offering up to 584GB of internal hard disk storage, the PowerEdge 2500 also gives organizations a
choice in configuring their storage capabilities. You have the option of Dell’s flexible and affordable PowerVault
external SCSI storage or external fibre channel storage. The fibre channel storage system gives you maximum
PowerEdge 2500 storage capacity into the terabyte range along with many data-protecting features.

Dell PowerEdge
4600 Server

Incorporating the latest in high Performance


The Dell PowerEdge 4600 offers new, cutting-edge technologies providing exceptional levels of performance for
performance technologies, an
memory-intensive, high bandwidth applications including network infrastructure, collaborative data backup and
enhanced set of availability recovery, research, security and streaming media. With up to two Intel® Xeon™ processors, it delivers core speeds
features* and a high level of as fast as 2.2GHz with a 400MHz front side bus.

scalability, the Dell™ PowerEdge™ Furthermore, the PowerEdge 4600 is the first Dell platform to utilize the ServerWorks® Grand Champion High
4600 introduces a new level of End (GC-HE) chipset that raises the bar for high speed memory access and performance. The PowerEdge 4600
implementation of the chipset provides an incredible 3.2GB/s of memory bandwidth and up to 3.4GB/s of throughput
functionality to the dual-processor
on a five-bus-segment architecture. The chipset also accommodates up to twelve registered DDR (double data rate)
mid-range server market. DIMMs with capacities up to 1GB and four-way interleaved memory architecture for a performance advantage
particularly important in high-end graphic applications environments.

The PowerEdge 4600 also incorporates PCI eXtended (PCI-X) technology, the next generation local I/O standard
that provides high bandwidth and dedicated hardware interfaces between internal chips and peripheral cards that
can result in an overall reduction of system latency time.

High Availability and Data Protection


Designed to meet the needs of customers who require high levels of availability and data protection, the
PowerEdge 4600 offers the latest in high availability features. A key differentiator of the PowerEdge 4600 is the
embedded PERC3/Di RAID controller, a high-performance Ultra3 (160MB/s) SCSI RAID solution that provides dual
RAID channels and supports write-back caching with a battery backup to protect the cache memory’s content in
the event of a power outage. It also features redundant cooling and redundant power supply options in addition
to hot-plug hard drives and hot-plug PCI-X slots for optimum uptime.

The GC-HE chipset contributes several key high availability features to the PowerEdge 4600. In addition to ECC
(Error Correcting Code) memory, the chipset supports ServerWorks Enterprise Chipkill™ technology that helps preserve
customer data and maintain system availability above what ECC can provide. The spare memory bank is an optional
feature that allows customers to designate one memory bank, or four DIMMs, as a spare and the remaining two
banks, or eight DIMMs, as actual system memory. When a pre-defined ECC error threshold is reached, the spare
memory bank copies the data from the faulty bank while the system is running. This maintains server availability
and memory reliability without service intervention. The DIMM(s) in the faulty bank that exceeded the error threshold
can be replaced at the customer's convenience during a scheduled shutdown.

Scalability, Manageability and Serviceability


The PowerEdge 4600 provides both enhanced scalability for internal storage, memory and network bandwidth as
well as enhanced flexibility to configure and manage data.* As a result, customers have an easy-to-use system that
can grow readily with their needs. With 10 hard drives, the server delivers up to 730GB of internal storage capacity,
and the PowerEdge 4600’s seven PCI slots offer room for additional functionality and expansion.

The PowerEdge 4600 offers Dell OpenManage™ with a streamlined, wizard-driven installation for simple management
from the very beginning. Built-in remote management includes full in-service or out-of-service access to the system,
and the completely redesigned 6U chassis is built for data centers, remote offices and networked environments.

in-line with desktop systems, you simply cannot go wrong with the Dell PowerEdge 500SC.

Low Price, High Quality


Embedded features, like video and a high-performance Intel® PRO/100+ Network Interface Card (NIC), allow Dell
to offer the PowerEdge 500SC for prices comparable to desktop systems. Additionally, this system has been fully
tested for reliability and has successfully completed the rigorous quality tests required of all Dell servers.

Flexible Performance
To provide affordable performance, the PowerEdge 500SC has a dual ATA-100 Integrated Drive Electronics (IDE)
controller that delivers speeds up to 100MB/s. While the speed is comparable to a SCSI system, ATA-100 costs
less so you save more. For processing power, you may choose either an Intel Pentium® III processor for larger tasks
or an Intel Celeron™ processor for smaller workloads. For optimal performance, the PowerEdge 500SC now features
a SCSI option. This add-in PCI card delivers Ultra3 (UI60) SCSI reliability to the highly affordable PowerEdge 500SC.

Dell Makes it Easy

All too often, customers expect to spend the majority of their time and resources on selecting and purchasing
a server. However, once the server arrives, the tedious process of acquiring software and loading an operating system
and applications can take you hours or even days. To ease your burden, Dell provides a one-stop shop for your server
and operating system purchases and offers a complete line of helpful services to get you up and running fast.
Through our factory installation processes for operating systems and applications and our on-site deployment services,
Dell takes care of all the details. By turning the work over to us, you can focus on your core business – and stay
a step ahead of the competition.

If you prefer to install your operating system yourself, you can take advantage of another time and cost saving tool
from Dell, the Server Assistant. A bootable, stand-alone CD-ROM, the Server Assistant enables you to quickly set
up and configure new Dell PowerEdge SC system components and software. The CD-ROM ships with every
PowerEdge SC server at no additional charge. By using the automated functions in Dell Server Assistant, you can
set up your server with an operating system such as Microsoft® Windows NT® 4.0 and be able to use the server
in approximately 25 minutes.

incredible investment protection. 60 SDLT cartridges. As a result, you can create a powerful configuration that offers a maximum compressed storage
capacity of up to 14.4TB1 (LTO) or 13.2TB (SDLT).

High Performance Automated Backups


To help meet escalating demands for data protection and disaster recovery, the PowerVault 136T offers an automated
solution for both Local Area Network (LAN) and Storage Area Network (SAN) environments. By automating LAN
and SAN-based backups, the PowerVault 136T provides the flexibility to back up and restore data at high
performance speeds.

The PowerVault 136T also allows you to keep pace with shrinking backup windows. With the ability to scale up
to six LTO or SDLT tape drives, the tape library can reach backup speeds as high as 648GB1/hr with LTO drives or
480GB/hr with SDLT drives.

Furthermore, the tape library is available in a rack-mountable or a stand-alone model to meet a wide variety of needs.
And the 14U form factor can include an embedded 2Gb/s fibre channel router for high performance SAN backups.

Simplified Manageability
The PowerVault 136T Tape Library allows you to easily manage the backup process from anywhere. With the
embedded remote management card, you can access and monitor the library with a Web browser. This card
enables you to perform remote diagnostics, update library drives and library controller firmware, retrieve Service
Action Code (SAC) errors, and perform pick and place functions. Library, drive and mailbox activity can also be managed
locally with an easy-to-use Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) panel.

Additionally, with the tape library’s mailbox feature, you can import and export tape cartridges while backup jobs
are in progress. Consequently, you do not have to re-inventory all tape cartridges in the library and backup jobs run
more efficiently.

Investment Protection
The PowerVault 136T provides excellent investment protection by incorporating easily into your environment and
offering a variety of options. For example, you can move from an automated LAN-based backup solution to a SAN-based
system simply by adding the 2Gb/s fibre channel router. In addition, the PowerVault 136T can be ordered
with one tape drive and later scaled up to six drives as your backup environment grows. And because the
tape library is designed to tolerate 1,000,000 mean swaps before failure, its reliability and longevity help protect
your investment.

The PowerVault 136T tape library is a powerful automated backup solution with the flexibility and performance
to suit your unique environment.

With highly centralized management features for simplified administration as well as tested and certified
heterogeneous interoperability for investment protection, a Dell/EMC SAN solution can help keep your costs in
check.

Dell/EMC SAN components give you the power of choice.


Featuring powerful Dell/EMC products, a Dell/EMC SAN solution can give you incredible flexibility to meet
your configuration and connectivity requirements. And it is designed to support your organization as those
requirements change. Its scalable infrastructure allows you to add storage online, or dynamically reconfigure
and reallocate storage allowing you to choose what works for you and scale as your business grows. For
example, you can start small with a project-based SAN for Microsoft® Exchange or SQL, or deploy an
advanced SAN with disaster recovery options.

space-conscious format.
You can build as you grow by adding up to seven PowerVault 224F units behind a single PowerVault 660F subsystem.
And because the PowerVault 224F is the PowerVault 660F disk enclosure without RAID controllers, you can simply
upgrade by adding RAID modules. Ideal for protecting your investment, these enclosures deliver the same
high performance and exceptional manageability as the PowerVault 660F.

Additionally, the PowerVault 660F/224F provides exceptional performance for the price, delivering data transfer
speeds of 165MB/s and 15,000 I/Os per second. Coupled with the Dell direct business model and world-renowned
customer service, the PowerVault 660F/224F represents outstanding value in fibre channel storage.

Rack-Dense Scalability
Offering scalability in an incredibly rack dense form factor, the PowerVault 660F/224F enables you to quickly
respond to the demand for increased capacity. With 14 fibre channel drives, it can store more than a terabyte of data
in a 3U enclosure, and it can store more than 8TB in approximately five square feet of front panel space.

The modular architecture of the PowerVault 660F/224F allows you to cost-efficiently add storage as you need it.
You can start with a minimally configured storage array with one drive and build onto it as your needs change.
In addition, with the Dell Fibre Disk RAID Controller (DFDRC) featured on the PowerVault 660F, you can scale
performance by adding controllers or scale capacity by adding up to 112 disks behind one unit. You can also scale
both simultaneously by adding storage expansion units with single or dual active RAID controllers.

Availability
The PowerVault 660F/224F disk array is designed with reliability in mind making it ideal for applications that requires
maximum uptime. Both the PowerVault 660F and the PowerVault 224F can be ordered with redundant, hot-plug
power supplies and cooling modules to help increase availability.

Furthermore, by deploying the PowerVault 660F/224F in a cluster configuration, you can potentially reduce downtime.
And one of the inherent benefits of a fibre channel solution is it supports several fault-tolerant features such as
combined dual-looping and dual-ported drives that help implement complete I/O redundancy with no single point
of failure.

The PowerVault 660F/224F fibre channel array packs exceptional performance, value, and availability into a rack-dense
format with configuration flexibility.

Flexible and Intuitive Discovery, Event Filtering and Proactive Alerts


Dell OpenManage is a comprehensive standards-based solution for managing systems distributed throughout
the enterprise. It monitors and manages Dell systems, using a browser-based user interface, providing system
discovery, event logging and alerting. Why use standards? Standards provide the infrastructure for
communicating between and among your systems. Dell OpenManage is built on standards that provide a full
and complete discovery of systems in the environment with:

• Desktop management interface (DMI) agents


• Common information model (CIM) agents
• Simple network management protocol (SNMP) agents.

OpenManage also provides complete event management including logging and filtering events based on
user defined criteria, and actions based on filtered events. The proactive event notification includes
alphanumeric paging and e-mail, and the ability to launch applications based on events.

Exceptional performance. Reliable solutions. Easy as

Visit www.dell.com for more information.


Centralized Inventory and Asset Information
Using the OpenManage™ tree structure to navigate to any system on the network, you can instantly access
a summary of system-level information, including processor family and version, memory size and configuration,
BIOS information, asset and service tags, operating system information, and NIC types and addresses. Most
of the system summary information is read automatically from the hardware instrumentation.

System asset information is also available and includes data such as purchase cost, date of installation, PO
number, cost center, extended warranty information, departmental data, depreciation data and more.

The ability to compile inventory data for a server or a group on the network, into a report for printing or
filing, can be extremely useful. OpenManage features an inventory report function that enables you to
choose the asset(s) for the server or group of interest and print, or export the report to a file for use in
another application.

Complete Array Management


In addition to monitoring and managing Dell systems, OpenManage includes integrated storage management:
• Auto-detection of storage components
• Event capture and logging from all storage components
• Propagation of storage status up through server status icons

Dell OpenManage array management enables you to configure and manage local and remote storage
devices attached to a server while the server is online and continuing to process requests. It obtains data
from the storage devices and the logical volumes contained on those devices. The array management tool
displays storage configuration in both a physical and logical view. The physical view shows the physical
connections between the storage devices. The logical view shows a logical representation of your storage.

The array management tool provides a single console for array and volume configuration, from which you
can do the following:
• Create and configure virtual disks (RAID arrays)
• Manage RAID and non-RAID devices
• Create partitions and volumes
• Format disks and create file systems
• Assign drive letters

Today's storage management tools used for configuring and managing storage subsystems can require the
user to have a great deal of knowledge about RAID technology. To lighten this requirement, OpenManage
contains RAID Policies that provide a storage configuration method that is application-based. RAID policies
automate your storage configuration based on which application is being installed.

Dell is an e-commerce pioneer. Since first transacting business on Dell.com in 1996, Dell has continued to

be an industry leader in e-business. Dell has used this experience in e-commerce to develop a business-critical,

three-tier infrastructure (see Figure 1), comprised of hundreds of servers and managing millions of hits per

day. With each tier optimized for specific functions, this multi-tier infrastructure provides high performance

with its cost-effective, efficient design.

E-business applications tend to be highly integrated with each other and with core infrastructure software

and network components. Integrating e-business applications into a company’s mainstream business
operations requires creating an online business-computing model. At the highest level, business-computing

applications can be categorized into three different types that create a model for all business computing

functions: E-business Applications, Standard Applications and Core Infrastructure Applications. These

functions build on top of Dell Infrastructure Computing hardware platforms.

Dell Infrastructure Computing Platform – Dell provides an end-to-end Infrastructure Computing product

line. Dell server and storage products serve as industry-standard building blocks for deploying a scalable,

and highly available computing infrastructure.

E-Business Infrastructure Applications – E-Business Infrastructure Applications are the newest to

emerge from the software industry. These applications tend to be highly segmented and specialized,

offering an array of new software, products and technologies. E-business applications support new

paradigms of computing capabilities and services to employees, customers and suppliers.

As the newest layer in the software application hierarchy, innovation and deployment expertise with these

applications can offer significant competitive advantages.

Dell’s deployment of online Web stores, order management, e-procurement, and e-supply chain solutions

have created a significant competitive advantage for its business.

Standard Infrastructure Application – The functions of these applications run the day-to-day

office-computing environment and include e-mail, project management, database repositories and Web site

management are but a few examples of standard infrastructure applications. In the past, large internal

teams of system integrators and IT staff were required to load, deploy and support this class of applications.

Today, these applications are mature standardized deployments at most customer sites. Dell’s own internal

use, customer use and engineering research and development work result in Best Practice configuration,

integration and deployment expertise directly available to Dell customers.

Core Infrastructure Applications – These applications include file/print, networking, communications,

storage, backup/recovery and other core networking computing operations. These applications under go

extensive research, engineering development and testing by Dell to assure that the base hardware and

software foundation components are well-integrated, reliable, scalable, available and able to serve the

needs of higher-level applications. Dell’s ISO 9002 compliant factories can directly install many of these core

infrastructure applications for customers before shipment. This saves customers the time and expense of

independent validation testing, system preparation and application load times. Dell factory installation

allows IT staffs to focus on other activities, or it can be used as a jump start to speed deployment.

different solution to achieve those needs. PowerEdge™ Appliance servers were designed to be cost effective

and efficient, targeted to maximize the performance of your IP related, front-end functions. PowerEdge

Appliance servers are used to build the front-end tier (cache, load balancing and web servers) of your

internet infrastructure where IP routing and processing of static content is more common. PowerEdge servers

and PowerVault™ storage, through their redundancy and internal system scalability, are ideally suited to meet

the transactional, dynamic content needs of the application and database server functions. Through the use

of Dell PowerEdge Appliance, PowerEdge and PowerVault solutions, you can build a cost effective, efficient

and performance based computing infrastructure to meet the changing needs of your organization.
