Dell has always been well known for supplying budget computer peripherals.  Their server lineup has always been a bit different.  Personally, I have had dealing with some of their PowerEdge line servers. For the most part the PowerEdge type servers are pretty well built, I liked how things had a place (almost…)  Modular, I’ve always liked that idea.  With that being said,  let’s jump into what we’ve got here.

System Specifications:

12 Blades each with following config:

  • 1 AMD Athlon II 610
  • 4 x 2GB of PC3-10600
  • 4 Seagate Constellation 500GB Drives (Enterprise Level)
  • 2 Intel Corporation 82576 Gigabit Network Connection

There are 2 1400w power supplies that run on 200-240v single phase power ONLY.  This will NOT run on 120v power.  There is a centralized management port that we will go over later on, which comes with full IPMI/Power support on a per node basis.  Let’s jump into this thing and unbox it.
