A revolutionary approach to modular infrastructure for data centers
The foundation for the PowerEdge FX architecture, an extremely flexible and efficient platform for building IT infrastructures.
Dell EMC PowerEdge FX2 – the foundation of the PowerEdge FX architecture – is a 2U enclosure with shared power, cooling, management and PCI connectivity. Mix and match modular blocks of PowerEdge compute or storage resources in the FX2 to tailor a solution to suit your unique requirements in just 3.5” of rack space. The FN I/O Module — purpose built for the FX2 — delivers choice for simplified network deployment and management, optimizing FX2 performance and enabling plug-and-play LAN/SAN convergence.

"FX uses Chassis Management Controller (CMC) to manage all resources (server nodes and shared infrastructure) in a single web console. OpenManage portfolio for FX supports local and remote management, consistent with other PowerEdge products. CMC and iDRAC are available with either Enterprise or Express licensing to best suit specific management needs. Server nodes each contain proven iDRAC8 with Lifecycle Controller for agent-free, automated systems management
