Modular server, storage and networking blocks neatly combine in a compact, converged 2U rack chassis to redefine data center agility.
Server blocks powered by latest Intel processors
Server blocks at the heart of the FX converged architecture are powered by the latest Intel® Xeon® processors. They include:
FC430: 2-socket, quarter-width 1U high-density server block with optional InfiniBand configuration
FC630: 2-socket, half-width 1U workhorse server block ideal for a wide variety of business applications
FC830: Powerful 4-socket, full-width 1U server block for mid-size and enterprise data centers
FM120x4: Half-width 1U sled housing up to four separate Intel® Atom® powered single-socket microservers offers up to 16 microservers per 2U.
The FX architecture also includes the FD332 storage module.
FC430 – The ultimate in converged-platform server density
The FC430 is a compact quarter-width server block that combines powerful processors, great memory capacity and tremendous IO throughput. In its two-storage-drive configuration, it is well suited for mainstream enterprise workloads, such as web serving, dedicated hosting and lightweight virtualization and analytics. In its InfiniBand configuration, it is an excellent option for high-performance computing (HPC), high-frequency trading (HFT) and other workloads that require extra-low latency.
|Product Type||PowerEdge FC430|
With its ultra-compact quarter-width form factor (up to eight servers per FX2 chassis), the FC430 offers the perfect balance of performance, memory and high-speed I/O for mainstream enterprise workloads, including midsized virtualization and database environments. Its exceptionally small failure domain enables data centers to host a large number of virtual machines and applications on physically discrete servers, minimizing the impact of potential failures on overall operations. The FC430 also has an InfiniBand version designed for workloads requiring extra-low latency, like High-Frequency Trading (HFT) and High-Performance Computing (HPC/HTC).The FC430 features:
- Two multi-core Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v4 processors (up to 224 cores per FX2)
- Up to 8 memory DIMMs (up to 64 DIMMs per FX2)
- Two 1.8" SATA SSDs or one 1.8" SATA SSD (w/front IB Mezzanine port)
- Dual-port 10Gb LOM
- Access to one PCIe expansion slot in the FX2 chassis
