Dell PowerEdge T620 review

The tower equivalent of the rack-mounted R720, Dell's PowerEdge T620 sports the same processor, RAM and management options plus even more flexible storage. It's a powerful and versatile platform that can cope with everything from standard file and print duties through distributed branch office applications to private cloud deployment.

Dell has done a lot more than simply upgrade the PowerEdge T320 to the new Xeon E5-2400 processor. Memory and storage also get a huge boost, and there's optional iDRAC 7 management and an embedded hypervisor option, making this a real SME power platform.
