Rock Solid

PostedJanuary 13, 2011
Yes, I would recommend this product
I have three of the R610's now and just ordered my fourth. Most of my other servers are Dell 1950 and 2950 and although I love those servers, the R610's are a huge step above. Dell has really taken these servers seriously.
The fit and finish are superior to other major brands. Opening them up and accessing the components is simple and intuitively done. Servers are relatively quiet. Rapid rail mounts are the best rack mount system I've seen. Set up time is nothing.
LCD Readout is well done. The locking bezel is the first sign you see as to how well built this machine is. Almost everything is tool-free when it comes to accessing components. I wish I could try the solid state drives on one of these. I have 9 laptops with the SSD's and the speed on those machines is rocket fast.
I've had zero issues with the 15 or so Dell servers I have and that has held true for the R610. Price is great and they look good in the rack too!
Pros:print file mail application servers., local government.

Great Virtualization Box

PostedJanuary 12, 2010
Yes, I would recommend this product
This server is definitely a powerhouse with the current generation of Intel processors. Lots of memory slots, it helps when buying lots of memory for virtualization. Only limitation is the number of slots for adapters, but that is an acceptable trade-off for a 1U server.
Easy to install with rapid rails.
Pros:virtualization, application server

This is a Fantastic Server - Very Fast!

PostedJune 15, 2009
Yes, I would recommend this product
Sometimes Dell gets it right on all counts. This server is quiet, efficient, and fast! To compare I migrated a MAS200 ERP system to this server from another Dell server (Poweredge 2950 2GHZ, Quad Xeon 32-bit) This new server is 64-bit 2008 STD server with the Xeon Quad 5520 2.2GHZ RAID5 with 3-15K RPM 2.5 drives. One of my processes took 5 hours on the old server, This server does the same job in 45 minutes!
Crystal database reporting is at least 5X faster. Consider I only purchased the single Quad-core proc..I can add another later.
Time from box to rack mounted to usable Desktop - 50 minutes- No hassles, clear markings, no sharp edges. Get the Rapid-Rails..they are great!
Cannot recommend enough. I wish all of my servers(I have 9) were R610's!
Pros:erp accounting system
