          Ordering Information

          The Dell PowerEdge VRTX is designed to deliver IT simplicity, efficiency and agility to offices of all sizes, and specifically for remote offices and small and midsize businesses. VRTX’s compute power, shared storage capacity, and high availability capabilities, combined with VRTX’s robust systems management, make it a highly attractive platform for a wide range of workloads in a broad spectrum of industries.

          PowerEdge VRTX can help solve hardware disparity, sprawl and lack of space through the convergence of servers, storage and networking into a 5U rackable desk-side chassis with the capacity to support up to four server nodes. Eliminate integration problems with this pre-integrated, pre-tested, certified server, shared storage, networking, operating systems/hypervisor, and management for confident deployment and smooth ongoing operation.

          With vast scalability available inside the chassis, additional servers and/or hard drives can be inserted without the need for more floor space or rack space, and without any additional cables. VRTX’s feature-rich, 2-socket, half-height PowerEdge M520 and M620 server nodes are proven platforms and technologies that deliver exceptional flexibility and scalable performance.

          12G iDRAC 7 Express for Blades
          Cache Memory (installed) 15 MB
          RAM (installed) 48 GB
          RAM (max) 384 GB
          RAM Technology DDR3 SDRAM
          Memory Notes Each node contains 48GB (6x8GB) 1333MHz Registered (RDIMM) DDR3 SDRAM, and is expandable up to 384GB (with two processors per node installed).

          There are 12 DIMM slots per node. Six DIMM slots per node contain removable 8GB DIMMs; the remaining 6 slots per node are available.

          The M520 server node supports flexible memory configurations ranging from capacities of 2GB to 384GB (using 32GB DIMMs), and up to 6 DIMMs per processor (up to 12 DIMMs in a dual-processor configuration). Each processor has 4 memory channels, with each channel supporting up to 3 DIMMs.

          Memory population guidelines:
          UDIMMs, RDIMMs, and LRDIMMs are supported but memory types must not be intermixed.
          Populate DIMM sockets only if a processor is installed.
          If memory modules with different speeds are installed, they will operate at the speed of the slowest installed memory module(s) or slower depending on system DIMM configuration.

          Video memory:
          Integrated Matrox G200 graphics.
