Dell PowerEdge 6950 Product Review

If you’re looking for a server that means business, the Dell PowerEdge 6950 is definitely worth exploring. The Dell PowerEdge 6950 ranks high in the build quality department, which is made evident with the two large grilles at the front panel that improves airflow all through the chassis.

Speaking of the front panel, the Dell PowerEdge 6950 is embedded with a six bay hard drive cage that is able to accommodate 3.5 inch disks. Taking a look the cabin of the Dell PowerEdge 6950, everything seems to be neatly stacked and tucked away, with the sockets of the processor arranged into two groups.

Each of the processor modules is cooled by a large passive heatsink and two pairs of hot swap fans. The airflow in the Dell PowerEdge 6950 is further enhanced with the help of three large plastic shrouds that are discreetly located behind the backplane.

The RAID card included with the Dell PowerEdge 6950 comes with a battery backup pack and there’s also a hardware enabler that proves useful to activate the embedded TCP offload engine. The Dell PowerEdge 6950 is complimented with a plethora of management and installation tools to include the OpenManage Suite that brings in the Array Manager, Server Assistant and IT Assistant utilities.
