Designed to go the distance
You've told us you need a server manufacturer that inspires confidence through its reliability, availability and quality of products and services. Working with your needs in mind, we've designed the PowerEdge R515 for optimal reliability and ease of use, incorporating customer-inspired features that range from robust metal hard-drive carriers and industrial-quality materials to embedded diagnostics and a handy interactive LCD screen.
Our reliability goals are simple: deliver quality products that stand the test of time.
A Unified Server Configurator (USC) helps minimize downtime by offering embedded and persistent diagnostics with no media requirements.
A “one-touch” quality-control process enables one person to be responsible for the entire server build.
Every fully-configured Dell server model is tested—and re-tested—before it leaves the factory.
Our operating system, application and software integration testing and validation process helps ensure that everything works together right out of the box.
A focus on product longevity helps ensure that product lifecycles are long and fully supported with replacement parts, providing excellent investment protection.
Efficient from the inside out
We've designed the PowerEdge R515 to provide you with a number of time- and energy-saving features.
Energy Smart technologies, including low-wattage processors, low-voltage DIMMs and high-efficiency fans that adjust spin rates according to server workload demands, help you manage power in your specific environment.
Internal server shrouding and logical component layouts optimize the airflow direction to help cool the server.
Energy-efficient power supplies use power effectively without compromising business productivity
All external ports, power supplies and LED lights or LCD screens are clustered in the same area across the PowerEdge portfolio to ease usability, installation and administration.
Compact chassis design helps you utilize space efficiently in your environment.
Easy to manage
As an IT professional, you don't have extra time to spend on routine management and maintenance tasks. That's why the Dell systems-management portfolio focuses on two core principles to make your life easier: simplicity and cost-effectiveness.
Integrated on the server, the optional Lifecycle Controller helps administrators perform provisioning functions, such as diagnostics, hardware configuration and system deployment in a pre-OS environment—all from a single interface called the Unified Server Configurator (USC). This helps eliminate excess CD/DVD media and helps get your server up and running fast.

Interactive LCD screen
The PowerEdge R515 features an interactive LCD screen on the front of the server to ease setup, monitoring and maintenance. Plain-language diagnosis and a programmable messaging system can help you address issues quickly to simplify day-to-day monitoring.
