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. Available operating systems include Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Red Hat and Enterprise Linux 3, among others. Dell Inc., Round Rock, Texas
