A quarter-width, two-socket FX architecture server, the Dell PowerEdge FC430 offers the ultimate in shared infrastructure density with the option for smaller, physically discrete servers.
Optimize for workload
With the perfect balance of performance, memory and high-speed I/O to rapidly deliver resources to applications, the FC430 is ideal for mainstream enterprise workloads, including midsized virtualization and database environments, and is an excellent choice for distributed environments needing higher levels of reliability. With the ability to host applications in smaller, physically discrete servers, the FC430 can help minimize the scope of potential system failures.
Implement higher reliability
The FC430's quarter-width size is one of its unique qualities. It can host the operations of various clients as a dedicated host or execute many applications in a virtualized environment. In either case, it provides the advantage of better dependability through physical separation; in the event that one server fails, virtual machines or clients using other servers continue to function normally.
Right-size your IT
Utilize the FX architecture's great degree of flexibility to respond quickly. Increase the chassis's capacity by adding one or more fully loaded 2U enclosures or resources at the single server level. With eight FC430s fully loaded onto an FX2 chassis, there are 224 CPU cores and 48 DIMMs of memory accessible in a 2U chassis.
Innovative management with intelligent automation
The Dell OpenManage systems management portfolio streamlines and automates server life-cycle management, improving the productivity, dependability, and cost-effectiveness of Dell servers and streamlining IT processes. Server deployment, configuration, and updates are automated and effective thanks to Lifecycle Controller and Dell's agent-free integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC). You can manage FC430 server nodes individually or collectively via a browser-based interface if you use the Chassis Management Controller (CMC), an embedded component that is a part of every FX2 chassis.
In conjunction with OpenManage Mobile, OpenManage Essentials offers enterprise-level monitoring and control of hardware from Dell and other manufacturers used in data centres. With the addition of server configuration management features, OpenManage Essentials can now automate bare-metal server and OS deployments, replicate configurations, and guarantee continuing adherence to predetermined system configurations.
