To help organizations quickly configure complete workloads using modular building blocks of IT resources, Dell has announced three new modules for the PowerEdge FX portfolio.
Manish Gupta, Director, Enterprise Solutions Group, Dell India, said, “The strength of Dell’s PowerEdge has always been in its design, innovated over time to address customer’s requirements and IT trends. The new FX products package convenience for customers by addressing their need for flexibility and customization. The product has a distinct edge over competition. Customers can now host 72 per cent more users in 10 times less space with the new PowerEdge FX2 modules than the Cisco UCS.”
Dell PowerEdge FX portfolio expanded for further infrastructure flexibility
The Dell PowerEdge FX portfolio will include three new modules to offer enterprises even more options for changing application demands. This gives customers even more ability to add or swap IT building blocks – into a 2U converged infrastructure chassis.
The new building blocks include:
- PowerEdge FD332, a half-width storage block that provides up to 16 direct-attached small form-factor (SFF) storage devices (meaning customers can provision up to 48 SFF storage devices in a 2U FX2 chassis) that enables dense, highly-flexible, scale-out solutions. PowerEdge FX servers can be attached to a single FD332 or multiple FD332s, allowing customers to combine servers and storage in a wide variety of configurations to address specific processing needs.
- PowerEdge FC430, a quarter-width, half-height server block that has the ability to host applications in smaller, physically discrete servers to minimize the risk of system failures. With the FC430 organizations can host more than 72 per cent more virtual desktop users in 10 times less space than Cisco UCS(5) for better total cost of ownership. The FC430 features Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 processors, with up to 8 memory DIMMs. See more
