The c60o belongs to a family of seven severs, and is aimed at businesses running cloud applications, where space, maintenance power and cooling are top priorities.

The Dell PowerEdge c6100 gets things started with an astounding high rack density provided by four server nodes built into a small yet elegant chassis.

The rack brackets on each side of the c6100 chassis are embedded with a single warning light and power buttons. At the back, the Dell PowerEdge c6100c boasts hot swappable nodes, giving you the leverage to remove one while the others are still functioning.

In terms of power, the c6100 can be had with either Intel Xeon 5500 or 5600 processors, with a memory capacity of 96GB. If you're looking for RAID functionality, the Dell PowerEdge c6100 can be had with the optional LSI 6Gbit/s SAS mezzanine card or a Mega RAID SAS PCI-E card.
