    Compact powerhouse for compute applications

Thanks to its quarter-width size you can accomocate up to eight FC430 servers in one FX chassis, delivering the high compute density needed for web serving and web tech, dedicated hosting and other business applications.

    Increase reliability in your hosting application as the physical separation helps isolate any issues or failures to one sled without affecting the operation of other sleds in the FX2.

    With up to 224 processing cores, the FC430 is a powerhouse for mid-tier and SMB apps.
