The DellTM PowerEdgeTM 850 server delivers affordable performance to power web and infrastructure applications for organizations of any size. Datacenter growth has spurred the need for space-conscious servers that can deliver support for applications without taking up valuable square footage. The PowerEdge 850 server’s processor flexibility and rack-dense chassis mean that you can pack the right amount of power in a small form factor. Featuring the Intel® Pentium® D processor, the PowerEdge 850 enables you to experience the benefits of dual core technology. This new technology combines two processing cores into a single processor chip for exceptional performance and power efficiency. It is ideal for running multiple applications and multi-threaded tasks common in many of today’s software applications. For environments that do not require as much processing capability, the PowerEdge 850 server supports the Pentium 4 processor with a generous price/performance ratio for incredible value. You can also choose the Celeron® D processor for entry-level environments with simple file and print applications. Scalability for Further Flexibility and Investment Protection The PowerEdge 850 server is designed to grow as your needs do and as future technology evolves. The new high-performance PCI ExpressTM architecture delivers flexibility and investment protection. The PowerEdge 850 has a choice of two risers – one with x4 and x8 PCIe slots, a second with one x8 PCIe slot and one PCI-X® 64/133 slot. Plus, dual embedded Gigabit1 NICs offer high bandwidth network connectivity, I/O traffic load balancing and fail-over for performance and data availability. Additionally, the server supports up to 8GB of ECC DDR2-533/667 memory and is able to support 64-bit applications so that you can easily take advantage of advanced technology developments.
