Dell PowerEdge T420
12th Generation Tower or 5U Rack Servers
Dell PowerEdge T420 Servers

The Dell PowerEdge T420 is a powerful and reliable 2-socket tower server that delivers performance and built-in capacity for non-disruptive growth. The T420’s acoustical profile allows it to fit unobtrusively into quiet office environments and data centers alike. This tower server is an excellent fit for generalpurpose small and medium business workloads such as database, file and print sharing, retail and email. The T420 also fulfills platform needs in small offices with the growing trend of virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). Hot pluggability of key components, combined with leading manageability, make it an excellent server for branch offices and other remote sites where IT skills might not be present. Consistent worldwide support makes it highly appealing to multinational businesses and organizations with remote offices.
