More power, same price.
The Dell PowerEdge 6850 server is designed to offer up to 32
percent greater performance for approximately the same price as its
predecessor. It features four 64-bit Intel Xeon processors MP running at
up to 3.6 GHz, up to 8 MB L2 cache, and up to 32 GB ECC DDR-2 SDRAM,
expandable to 64 GB once Dual Rank 4 GB DIMMs become available. The 6850
can house up to 1.5 TB of disc storage internally, and offers external
SCSI and fibre channel storage with an optional integrated HBA (host bus
adapter). Dual embedded Broadcom Gigabit NICs provide networkability and
hot-swappable power supplies, cooling fans, memory and hard drives mean
maintenance can be performed while the system is running. Dell's
OpenManage system server software is included. It automates many
maintenance tasks, such as updating software, and gives technicians
access to the system from the Internet through its Web-based console.
