  • INFOBrief Dell™ PowerEdge™ 2650

    The PowerEdge 2650 delivers a combination of performance, availability and configuration flexibility that make it ideal for a variety of first and second tier server workloads.

    Key Points • The PowerEdge™ 2650 is a rack-optimized server that is designed to

    deliver exceptional levels of performance for its product class. The platform utilizes the Intel® Xeon® processors and the ServerWorks® Grand Champion-LE (GC-LE) chipset to deliver more system performance improvements relative to the PowerEdge 2550.

    • The Dell PowerEdge 2650 delivers a great balance of expandability and rack density. With three open PCI-X slots and numerous embedded features, customers can deploy the PowerEdge 2650 server to support a wide range of workloads in a data center.

    • The Dell PowerEdge 2650 offers availability features designed to minimize order downtime. Features such as embedded RAID with battery-backed cache, hot-plug redundant fans, and optional features including hot-plug redundant power supplies and hot-plug hard drives help reduce the need to shut down the server to fix a component failure.

    • The Dell PowerEdge 2650 includes special design features that make the server easier to deploy, service, and manage remotely. The reduction in internal cables to one cable per system and the addition of

  • an Embedded Remote Access (ERA) port provide functionality that can lower the total cost of ownership of the server.

    Product Description The PowerEdge 2650 is a rack optimized server designed to deliver new levels of performance while maintaining the availability and expandability features that customers expect to find in a rack optimized, dual processor server.

    PowerEdge 2650 versus Other 2U Systems

    With the PowerEdge 2650, Dell continues its high standard in the rack optimized server market by delivering a rich feature set in a small chassis.

    Table 1 highlights the features of the PowerEdge 2650 versus its primary competitors. The key advantages of the PowerEdge 2650 are that it supports Intel XEON processors and incorporates a chipset that supports more I/O throughput and memory bandwidth. PCI-X expansion slots, Embedded Remote Access, dual embedded NICs and 128MB of battery back cache for embedded RAID also provide further benefits over the product’s primary competitors.

    PowerEdge 1750 versus PowerEdge 2650

    The key points of differentiation between the Dell PowerEdge 1750 and the Dell PowerEdge 2650 servers are:

    • Form Factor

    The PowerEdge 1750 is offered in a 1U chassis, whereas the PowerEdge 2650 is offered in a 2U chassis.

    • Performance

    Dell Product Group/Enterprise Page 3 March 2004

  • The PCI-X slots help provide greater levels of memory capacity and increased I/O bandwidth than the PowerEdge 1750. These features make the product well suited for compute- and memory-intensive applications.

    • Scalability

    Many of the PowerEdge 2650 features are designed to provide improved system performance, and to provide the headroom customers need to grow with the increasing demand for server resources.

    • Expandability

    The PowerEdge 2650 also supports one more PCI slot and two more hard drives than the PowerEdge 1650, providing customers with slightly more configuration flexibility as well as room for future expansion.

    PowerEdge 6650 versus PowerEdge 2650

    The key points of differentiation between the PowerEdge 2650 and the PowerEdge 6650 are:

    • Price/Performance

    The PowerEdge 2650 offers a compelling level of performance at a low price relative to the PowerEdge 6650. The price premium for the PowerEdge 6650 may put the system out of a customer’s budget for a given project. For example, customers that are looking to deploy a large number of servers as a front end to a large application will often choose the PowerEdge 2650 and configure the systems to share the demand for server resources across multiple servers. In such deployments, the PowerEdge 2650’s lower price makes the system more attractive than the PowerEdge 6650.

    • Form Factor

    The PowerEdge 2650 is offered in a 2U chassis versus the PowerEdge 6650, which is offered in a 4U chassis, making the 2650 the ideal choice in an environment where space constraints are among the most important buying criteria.

    • Performance scalability

    The PowerEdge 6650 supports greater levels of processing power with quad Intel Xeon processors, larger on-die cache, greater levels of memory capacity (32GB vs. 12GB) and more I/O bandwidth. All of these features enable customers to add components to increase system performance to meet increasing demands for the server’s resources.

    • Expandability

    The PowerEdge 6650 supports 5 more PCI slots and more memory sites than the PowerEdge 2650, offering customers more configuration flexibility as well as room for future expansion. Configuration flexibility is important

    Dell Product Group/Enterprise Page 4 March 2004

  • if a customer expects to scale up an existing server rather than adding more individual servers to meet growth needs.

    • Availability

    With support for memory mirroring and hot-plug PCI slots, the PowerEdge 6650 has more availability than the PowerEdge 2650, making it a better choice to run mission critical applications. However, the PowerEdge 2650 deployed in a high availability cluster is an economical alternative for a customer to achieve high levels of availability for mission critical applications.

    Table 2 compares the PowerEdge 1650 and 6650 to the PowerEdge 2650.
