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 latest FX module releases include the FD332 storage module, and FC830 and FC430 servers.
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.
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.
