The used Dell servers we have are listed below. If you are familiar with rack size designations, and know what you're looking for, use the filters to the left to narrow down your search. If you are unsure about which server is right for you, here are some basic guidelines:
1U Servers are designed for maximum computing power in a small package. They're easily stackable, and pair well with any of our new or refurbished storage arrays, for those who need significant amounts of storage. Potential or common uses include web hosting, caching and load balancing, front-end to a database servers, and video streaming. Popular 1U models from Dell's 13th and 12th Generation include the Dell PowerEdge R630 and Dell PowerEdge R430
2U Servers strike a balance between high computing power, and a relatively small rack footprint. They function well as an enterprise-level application & virtualization servers, and are flexible enough to fulfill many workhorse type roles. Popular 2U models from Dell's 13th and 12th Generation include the Dell PowerEdge R730 and Dell PowerEdge R720
4U Servers are the answer if you're looking for the highest possible computing power & storage within a single unit, when rack footprint is not a concern. Loaded with more RAM DIMM's and higher number of sockets for the latest processors, these beefy systems are ideal platforms for highly virtualized server environments, massive transactional databases, and cloud computing servers. A very popular 4U model from recent Generations is the Dell PowerEdge R910.
Tower and Desktop Servers, such as the Dell PowerEdge T420 are great for small offices. They're convenient because they don't require expensive and bulky racks to mount the servers, and fit easily in small spaces such as under typical office desks, under tables, or out of sight in a closet or cabinet. Tower units are typically our most popular option for small businesses.
Dell Blade servers are designed for data center use, and take up less space and use less power than standard 1U servers. You are able to mix most half height and full height Dell blades in any combination in the M1000e blade enclosure. Popular blades from recent generations include the Dell PowerEdge M630 and Dell PowerEdge M520.
