Ultimate in modular infrastructure density

Simplicity. Efficiency. Flexibility.

Quarter-width 2-socket FX modular infrastructure server offering outstanding density for data centers with a large number of computational nodes or virtual machines — and a low-latency I/O option.


PowerEdge FC430 server block

More choice, less complexity

  • Have a choice of management styles – rack or blade (CMC) at the server, chassis or rack level
  • Simplify cabling for densely packed quarter-width servers with I/O Aggregators
  • Easily manage a densely consolidated infrastructure with proven advanced management technologies

Right-size your IT

  • Host more clients per square foot with the FC430’s high-density footprint
  • Get more granularity, resulting in better resource efficiency with unprecedented smaller server and chassis (2U) size
  • Scale your infrastructure incrementally with small but powerful, quarter-width blocks of computing resource

Fit the infrastructure to the job

  • Run lightweight applications virtually with the FC430’s high-processor core and memory density
  • Deliver the density and performance HPC and HFT applications require with the FC430 InfiniBand® configuration.
  • Run highly available web services with the FC430’s extensive of memory and processing power
