PowerEdge FX- Scale incrementally

Scale incrementally with powerful blocks of computing resources

The FX compute sleds, powered by the latest Intel® Xeon® processors, deliver an exceptional amount of computing power in compact, scalable packages. They include:

  • FC830: 4S 1U server sled for mission-critical applications at midsize and enterprise data centers
  • FC640: 2S 1U server sled for private cloud/on-premises and dense XaaS in midsize and enterprise environments, powered by Intel 2nd Generation Xeon® Scalable processors
  • FC430: 2S 1U quarter-width server sled, ideal for solutions such as dense compute, HPC & light virtualization.
PowerEdge FX-Boost performance

Boost performance with highly flexible, scale-out storage blocks

Rapidly scale dense direct attached storage (DAS) in your FX infrastructures with the 1U FD332 storage module. Create a storage environment that supports balanced data growth on an as-needed basis. Tailor your storage needs to the workloads you are running and avoid overprovisioning. Because it supports SAS and SATA HDD/SSDs you can readily adapt to the performance needs of your applications. When appropriate, you can create software defined storage environments with a combination of hard drives and solid state drives.
