PowerEdge C6420

Ideal for high-performance hyperscale workloads


PowerEdge C6420


  • High-performance computing, in a compact 2U 4 node form factor, optimized for maximum density, scalability, and energy efficiency
  • Optimized compute, processors, memory and higher power efficiency with Direct Liquid Cooling
  • Proven reliability, with high density and scalability for maximum performance per U
  • Maximum platform flexibility for multitude of use cases
  • Cutting edge storage and I/O capabilities
  • Simplified, efficient systems management; iDRAC 9 further maximizes productivity and efficiency

Automate Productivity

  • Get up to 4x performance improvement with common management tasks with iDRAC9’s new dual-core ARM processor (compared with iDRAC8)
  • Use the same next-generation of embedded automation to standardize BIOS and secure boot configuration, firmware updates, server asset inventory, health monitoring, and power/reset control across all PowerEdge servers
  • Proactive automated support embedded resolves issues up to 90% faster

Comprehensive Security

  • Fully signed firmware updates; embedded trust only allows authenticated code to run
  • Security lockdown that protects your server configuration and firmware (BIOS, iDRAC, & RAID) from malicious changes
  • Secure instant erase for HDDs, SSDs, NVMs
  • New, more secure unique default password
  • Redfish, new REST-based management API, is more secure and scalable than legacy IPM
