PowerEdge R660 Rack Server 1U 2-Socket Design

    PowerEdge R660 Rack Server 1U 2-Socket Design

    The new Dell PowerEdge R660 is a 1U, two-socket rack server. Gain the performance you need with this full-featured enterprise server, designed to optimize even the most demanding workloads like dense database analytics and high-density virtualization.



    Max Performance


    • Add up to two Next Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors with up to 56 cores for faster and more accurate processing performancet.

    • Accelerate in-memory workloads with up to 32 DDR5 RDIMMS up to 4400 MT/sec (2DPC) or 4800 MT/sec for 1DPC (16 DDR5 RDIMMs max).

    •  Support for GPUs including 2* x single-wide for workloads requiring acceleration.


    Air cooled at peak performance


    •  New Smart Flow chassis optimizes airflow to support the highest core count CPUs in an air-cooled environment within the current IT infrastructure.

    •  Support for up to 8 x 2.5” drives and 2 x 350 watt processors.


    Gain agility


    • Achieve maximum efficiency with multiple chassis designs that tailor to your desired workloads and business objectives.

    •  Storage options include up to 8 x 2.5” NVMe/SAS4/SATA, plus up to 10 x 2.5” NVMe/SAS4/SATA, 14/16 x NVME E3.S Gen5*.

    •  Multiple Gen4 and Gen5 riser configurations (up to 3 x PCIe slots) with interchangeable components that seamlessly integrate to address customer needs over time.


    Cyber Resilient Architecture for Zero Trust IT environment & operations


    Security is integrated into every phase of the PowerEdge lifecycle, including protected supply chain and factory-to-site integrity assurance. Silicon-based root of trust anchors end-to-end boot resilience while Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) and role-based access controls ensure trusted operations.


    Increase efficiency and accelerate operations with an autonomous infrastructure


    The Dell OpenManage™ systems management portfolio delivers a secure, efficient, and comprehensive solution for PowerEdge servers. Simplify, automate and centralize one-to-many management with the OpenManage Enterprise console and iDRAC.




    From recycled materials in our products and packaging, to thoughtful, innovative options for energy efficiency, the PowerEdge portfolio is designed to make, deliver, and recycle products to help reduce the carbon footprint and lower your operation costs. We even make it easy to retire legacy systems responsibly with Dell Technologies Services.
