The PowerEdge T40 continues Dell’s line of low-cost, compact entry-level servers. Outwardly, it is a small “turret” with characteristic elements of Dell’s corporate design, more like a regular PC. Inside, there is a small single-socket board for the entry-level Intel Xeon E.
Moreover, the Dell PowerEdge T40 is truly a business product, and not an ordinary PC in a slightly unusual design. Someone will say that the differences are only in the details, but they are the defining ones: support for ECC memory, remote (out-of-band) management, a large set of PCI-E slots, calculation for 24/7 operation, convenient deployment, a host of additional security tools, as well as diagnostics and, finally, corporate-level technical support.
