The Dell™ PowerEdge™ R210 was developed with a purposeful design, energy-optimized
technology, simplified systems management, and the flexibility that make it a great first rack
server for the small business or as a specialized application server or edge server for larger
corporations. Dell’s entry 1-socket 1U rack server, the PowerEdge R210, offers value, the
performance of Intel® Xeon® 3400 series processors, DDR3 memory, eSATA external storage
expandability, and enterprise-class manageability in an ultra-compact chassis.
Purposeful Design: The PowerEdge R210 follows the 11th generation PowerEdge portfolio
specifications and features the same system design commonality and reliability true to the
entire portfolio. All 11th generation PowerEdge servers are built to make the user experience
easier. We put all external ports, power supplies, and LED lights in the same location for
familiar experience as well as easy installation and deployment.
Robust, metal hard drive carriers and organized cabling are designed to help improve
component access and airflow across the server. The PowerEdge R210’s design also provides a
LED display positioned on the front of the server for ease of monitoring and troubleshooting
condition of the server. It was designed to meet the needs of many IT environments with a
short 15.5 inch chassis to allow for flexible deployment almost anywhere, including spaceconstrained
Energy Efficiency: The PowerEdge R210 incorporates Energy Smart design using a low 250 watt
power supply, low-flow fans and logical component layout of the internal components which
aids with airflow direction, helping to keep the server cool and reduce noise as much as
possible. The result is a server with the smallest power footprint within the 11th generation
PowerEdge server portfolio.
Simplified System Management: With the optional advanced embedded systems management
capabilities of Lifecycle Controller, Dell brings comprehensive enterprise class manageability
into the 1-socket space. Lifecycle Controller is delivered as part of the optional iDRAC Express
or iDRAC Enterprise in the PowerEdge R210. The Lifecycle Controller helps to simplify
administrator tasks by performing a comprehensive set of provisioning functions such as system
deployment, system updates, hardware configuration and diagnostics from a single intuitive
interface called Unified Server Configurator (USC) in a pre-OS environment. This helps
eliminate the need to use and maintain multiple pieces of disparate CD/DVD media.
Also part of the Dell OpenManage™ portfolio is the Dell Management Console which is included
with every Dell server and provides IT administrators with a consolidated console view of their
Built with cost-effective RAID options to further protect your valuable data, new eSATA
external storage connectivity options, and the latest Intel® Xeon® processor technology, the
PowerEdge R210 is an ideal entry 1 socket 1U rack for small businesses and larger offices
needing flexibility and manageability in a very small chassis.
