If you’re in the market for an affordable rack-mount server, check out this deal from Dell. You can get a quiet, expandable, and powerful PowerEdge R220 rack server at a whopping 55% discount when you take advantage of today’s coupon.
In the first configuration, you’ll find a quad-core 3.1GHz Intel Xeon E3-1220 v3 CPU, 4GB of RAM, a 500GB 7200RPM hard drive, gigabit ethernet, and a DVD burner. As for expansion, it offers four DIMM slots (with support for up to 32GB of RAM), multiple drive bay options, a PCIe 3.0 x16 slot, two USB 3.0 ports, and three USB 2.0 ports.
It doesn’t ship with an operating system, but getting everything running is easy and affordable. You can use the likes of CentOS or Debian to get up and going without spending another dime. Or if you prefer a Windows-based solution, you can grab a Windows Server 2012 Standard OEM license on Amazon for about $300.
Normally, this model sells for $1113, but Dell is selling it for $769 when you buy online. Apply coupon code “499R220” during checkout, and you’ll save an additional $270. And if you sign up for the Dell Advantage Program for free, you’ll get two-business-day shipping at no additional cost.
If you don’t need quite as much power, consider grabbing a slightly different configuration. This more affordable model offers a dual-core 2.7GHz Intel Celeron G1820 CPU, 4GB of RAM, a 500GB 7200RPM hard drive, a DVD burner, and a three-year hardware warranty for just $299 when you use coupon code “299R220” in your cart.
