Part Number: C6520

 

Your innovation engine

The Dell EMC PowerEdge C6520, powered by 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, is a dense compute node to address massive compute at scale.

 

A dense compute node to address extreme compute at scale

The Dell EMC PowerEdge C6520 is designed to support dynamic compute at scale business requirements in a dense form factor.

  • C6400 chassis maximizes density and performance per U by supporting up to 4 dual-socket PowerEdge C6520 compute nodes in a 2U chassis
  • Supports 8 channels per CPU, up to 16 DDR4 DIMMs at 3200 MT/s DIMM speed
  • Address substantial throughput improvements with PCIe Gen 4 and up to 6 NVMe drives per node
  • Ideal for hyperscale compute workloads requiring high scalability and high performance
