Dell PowerEdge R900 Product Review

The Dell PowerEdge r900 takes server virtualization and consolidation to a whole new level, and if 24 Xeon Cores will boost your businesses productivity, then this is the ultimate choice. The r900 is touted as Dell’s best offerings to the server market and there’s good reason for this starting with its 4U chassis that supports a complete range of robust servers and that on its own is a tremendous improvement in the build quality department.
