Dell PowerEdge R720 dimensions and rack compatibility
The PowerEdge R720 chassis is 2 rack units in height, has a depth of 29 inches and will fit in standard EIA 19 inch racks.
Rails allow for the most efficient use of space when mounting servers. RackSolutions specifically designed a slide rail kit to fit the shoulder screws of the PowerEdge R720.
Universal rails that have a height of 2U and support up to 29 inches of depth will be compatible with the PE R720. A benefit of these is the ability to re-use them for different servers or future upgrades. Plus, it’s easy to slide your server in and out of them for maintenance.
