The Dell EMC PowerEdge C6520, the ideal compute-dense server designed to boost data center performance and address extreme compute at scale. A compute-dense server designed to boost data center performance. Designed for HPC workloads like digital manufacturing, research, and web tech.
Innovate at scale with challenging and emerging workloads
The Dell EMC PowerEdge C6520, powered by the 3rd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, is the ideal compute-dense server designed to support dynamic compute-at-scale business requirements in a dense form factor. The PowerEdge C6520 maximizes performance per U by supporting 4 dual-socket compute nodes in a 2U chassis with Air and Direct Liquid Cooling options to power the highest performing processors. It supports 8 memory channels/CPU, up to 16 DDR4 DIMMs @ 3200 MT/s DIMM speed. In addition, to address substantial throughput improvements the PowerEdge C6520 supports PCIe Gen 4 and up to 6 NVMe drives per node. This makes the PowerEdge C6520 an ideal server for hyperscale compute workloads requiring high scalability and high performance such as High-Performance Computing (HPC), high performance data analytics (HPDA), financial modeling and high frequency trading(HFT), Web Tech and XaaS Service Providers.
