Dell's PowerEdge 1955 server provides high-density computing with the latest high-performance server technologies.

The PowerEdge 1955 server from Dell Inc. was designed to address space constraints and reduce power consumption per server. In addition, it's meant to take advantage of the total cost of ownership benefits that blades have to offer by reducing overall management and maintenance costs.

Each blade is configured and factory tested to customer specifications and supports Dual-Core Intel Xeon Processors. The PowerEdge 1955 supports Dell's OpenManage product suite and eases the burden of deployment, change management, monitoring and server provisioning. Server provisioning is also possible with external USB media like CD-ROM, floppy drive or USB key devices through ports in the front of each blade server.

Remote management is enhanced through the DRAC/MC, with power control, event log reporting and inventory reporting. A second DRAC/MC module is available for active and/or passive redundancy. Remote management also has an Avocent Digital Access KVM switch, which provides support for remote graphical console redirection, virtual media support and other capabilities.

Other specifications include:

  • SAN or LAN-based backup

  • Two SAS/SATA drives
  • System requirements: Windows Server 2003, Red Hat Linux Enterprise v4 IES, AS and WSI, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10.

    Pricing: Starts at $4,345.
