Where did you hear that? Im kinda doubting it. It will work fine, but its very limit in ram, cpu, and density and not a great value. I have a r230 for running ad + file server and a few other things at a small buiness, and that fells like the target market.

 

 

Here is what dell r/t naming scheme has been for the last few years

 

2= low end low end socket, single socket, limited ram, single psu 1u

3= high end low end socket, more io, better drive and pcie slots, hotswap drives 1u

4= basic dual cpu, sometimes lower end socket(like lga 1356), limited ram slots.

5= 2u version of the 4, gets you more drive and pcie slots

6= high end version of the 4, often higherend dual cpu socket, more ram slots, more slots, better drive bays

7= 2u version of the 6, more drives and more io compared to the 6

8= low end quad socket system, often same socket and 4-7, normally 2u

9=high end quad socket, more ram slots, more io, high end cpu socket

 

 

And there are a few more thrown in there.

 

Basically for a used server, get a r710, you get more ram + slots comared to the 510. Id only get the 510 if you mainly want a nas.

 

get the 410 and 610 if you want 1u, but really you dont need the density at home.

 

 

Hi there. So  dell has the r series and the c series of rackmount servers. Does anybody know for example if the r510, r610 , r710 etc have specific target uses.

I have heard that the r210 and r210ii are targeted at web hosting.

 

Thanks in advance

The C series are aimed at scalability. If this is for home, you probably want the R series. 

 

The R210 is good for a smaller space, but it doesnt really have room for storage and its a single CPU, good for applications where you use an external storage subsystem and dont want it taking up much room. R510 is good for home use because typically theyre more common to have 3.5" bays and they have dual nic (network) and support 128GB memory. R710 are pretty much power user machines, I have these at home for building out my vCenter test lab. They have 4 nic's and support 192GB memory.

@Jarsky so what about the r510 and r610 ? BTW how many watts does your r710 setup pull under load and idle.

r510 is a 2U server while r610 is a 1U server. 

 

I have 1 R610 + 2 R710's - they all have Xeon X5650's. I'm not sure how many watts they pull in total, but its enough that they're off 99.9% of the time. My R610 has the 500w PSU and R710's have 870W PSU's. They're only a lab so I only turn them on when i'm doing some learning before new exams (I work in infrastructure). I did replace all the SAS drives with 500GB Samsung 840/850 Evo's though which dropped the power use a fair bit - I only did that though as I got them decomm'd from a friend for a very good price. If power is a concern and you don't need hex core CPU's, id look at L series CPU's as well then.
