Dell PowerEdge FX Architecture Server Options

The PowerEdge FC640 delivers powerful performing processors, large memory capacity and highly scalable I/O capability that meet virtualization, server consolidation, scale-out, private cloud or hybrid cloud needs.

The FX2 chassis has two versions:
  • PowerEdge FX2s: “switched” configuration supporting up to eight low-profile PCIe 3.0 expansion slots
  • PowerEdge FX2: lower-cost “unswitched” configuration that does not offer expansion slots.

Powerful 2-socket modular architecture server

A flexible, two-socket half-height/width compute sled powered by up to two 28-core, Intel® 2nd generation Xeon® Scalable processors, each FC640 supports up to 2TB of DDR4 memory, making it a perfect candidate for dense virtualization environments, software defined storage, databases, HPC, big data analytics, and private cloud workloads. The FC640 storage options include two 2.5-inch drives, with an option of NVMe PCIe SSDs for high performing direct attached storage requirements. The FX2 chassis supports up to four FC640 servers. SDS environment support now includes VMware vSAN with the HBA330 controller.

Innovative management with intelligent automation

The Dell EMC OpenManage systems management portfolio enables peak efficiency for PowerEdge servers, through intelligent, automated management of routine IT tasks. Combined with the unique agent-free management capabilities of the embedded iDRAC9 with Lifecycle Controller, the FC640 is simply managed, freeing up your time for high profile projects.

  • Increase IT data protection and integrity with the embedded security features of iDRAC9.
  • Enable collective or individual management of your servers with the Dell EMC Chassis Management Controller (CMC), embedded within the FX2 enclosure.
  • Improve IT productivity and agility with OpenManage Enterprise and Essentials: from bare-metal deployment to ongoing maintenance, and enforcement of IT policies within production environments.

End-to-end server ecosystem and life cycle security

Every PowerEdge server is designed as part of a cyber-resilient architecture, integrating security into the full server life cycle. The FC640 leverages new security features built into every new PowerEdge server strengthening protection so you can reliably and securely deliver accurate data to your customers no matter where they are. By considering each aspect of system security, from design to retirement, Dell EMC ensures trust and delivers a worry-free, secure infrastructure without compromise.
