product details

High Performance in a Dual Processor Tower

  • High performance for today and the future — Dual Xeon processors with EM64T support, teamed with DDR-2 Memory and PCI Express deliver outstanding performance for today's 32-bit applications as well as tomorrow's 64-bit applications. The large memory support of EM64T helps deliver great performance for applications that require more than 4GB of memory.

  • Enterprise-class high availability — The PowerEdge 2800 is designed to keep applications running in even the most demanding environments. Hot pluggable technology on the PCI Express slots, hard drives and power supplies enable quick servicing on the fly without taking the system offline. High availability features built into the processor, chipset and memory are designed to protect the server from failure due to data failures.

  • Massive internal expandability — Start big and grow even larger as your needs dictate. Up to ten internal hard drive bays and 7 I/O slots (all available) provide plenty of headroom, not only for today, but also for the future.

  • Scalable performance to protect your investment — Whether you are deploying 32-bit or 64-bit applications today, the PowerEdge 2800 is designed with the performance features that will enable a smooth transition and performance growth over time, allowing you to grow with your applications.

  • Industry-standard management to reduce your management costs — Common BIOS and drivers with PowerEdge 1850 and PowerEdge 2850 servers means that you can develop your system image once and deploy it across multiple servers as needed. And when it's time to upgrade, you can cut down the amount of time needed to manage the software components of your system. Combined with the common management controllers, hard drives, common system board design and common memory upgrades across multiple PowerEdge servers, management is a snap.
