Dell Poweredge Server Lineage

With the 10th Generation of the Dell Poweredge Servers out, the topic has come up about the Dell Poweredge Server family tree. There is really limited information even from Dell on the history of the Poweredge Server. I was hoping there would be a handy dandy document of evolution of servers complete with model number, years in production and all specs. Sadly, nothing comes that easy! I was able to find a list of model numbers from some helpful gentleman on Wikipedia so that was a start. Here is a list (not perfect but close) of all the Dell Poweredge Servers and the year of production.

As the years progressed, so did form factors. Towers are what started it all. Typically those older servers came in the 7U form factor and weighed about as much as a new Hummer.

Around the late 90s as more models came out they were all towers, but smaller sized towers. For example the Dell Poweredge 1300 would be say a mini tower by today’s standards and the Dell Poweredge 6350 would be a beastly 7U tower or the Hummer!

Right around the year 2001, servers became lighter in weight and the Dell Poweredge 1550 was welcomed with open arms to all techs that were suffering from sore backs.

In 2009, Dell exploded with many models of towers and rack mount servers along with a series of servers that featured the AMD Operton processors.

The “C Series” of Dell Poweredge Servers are starting to come out as of 2010.

If anyone has any other information, feel free to add or comment with correct information. I hope this is helpful to those that need it or to those that are just curious.
