The FX architecture also includes the FD332 storage module
Dell PowerEdge FX components - Flexible, high-density FX storage

FD332–Flexible, high-density FX storage

Now you can rapidly scale direct attached storage (DAS) in your FX-based infrastructures with the FD332 half-width 1U storage module. It lets you create an easily scalable storage environment that supports balanced data growth on an as-needed basis, enabling you to tailor your storage needs to the workloads you are running and avoid overprovisioning. Because it supports SAS and SATA, both HDD and SSD, you can readily adapt to the performance needs of your applications, and when appropriate, you can create software defined storage environments with a combination of hard drives and solid state drives.

FC830–Powerful scale-up server

The FC830 is a full-width 4-socket server block that combines powerful processors, enormous memory capacity and a highly expandable storage subsystem. It excels at running a wide range of applications and virtualization environments for both mid-size and large enterprises. It can readily handle demanding, mission-critical workloads, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP), data warehousing, e-commerce, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), databases and data node high-performance computing (HPC).

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.

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
