Dell PowerEdge R7525: Specs and Rack Compatibility
Dell’s PowerEdge R7525, released in 2020, improves on the R7425 by offering support for AMD EPYC processors with twice the core count and support, and 20% faster memory. 1st gen EPYC CPUs already offered more cores at a lower cost than Intel alternatives, so the 2nd generation’s 64 core CPUs were exciting to many enthusiasts.
Additionally, the server includes PCIe Gen4 for faster data transfer speed amongst its potential 3 double wide or 6 single wide accelerators. In all, this is a server designed for data analytics, all flash SDS, and BBI.

Dell PowerEdge R7525 dimensions and rack compatibility
The PowerEdge R7525 chassis is 2 rack units in height, has a depth of 28 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 R7525.
Universal rails that have a height of 2U and support up to 29 inches of depth will be compatible with the PE R7525. 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. You can also use our slam latch accessory kit for your Dell servers to be secured in place when using our universal rails. The retaining plate is only compatible with 1U-2U standard width universal rails.
