Dell PowerEdge FC830 CTO Blade Server Product Description

Powerful 4-socket server with dense compute, memory scalability and a highly expandable storage subsystem, the Dell PowerEdge FC830 is designed for data centers requiring the performance and reliability enterprise applications demand.

With powerful processors, enormous memory and highly scalable I/O capabilities, the PowerEdge FC830 excels at running a wide range of database-driven, mission-critical applications for midsize and large businesses, like enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM). Combining exceptional performance and data access capabilities, the FC830 is also ideal for the database tier of web tech and HPC environments or large-scale virtualization.

Dell PowerEdge FX Architecture

Flexible, scalable, powerful

Powered by up to four 22-core Intel Xeon E5-4600 v4 processors, each FC830 has 48 DIMMs, 16 x 1.8-inch, or eight 2.5-inch frontaccess drives, a dual-port 10GB select network adapter (SNA) and access to four PCI Express (PCIe) expansion slots in the shared chassis.

Fit the infrastructure to the job

Build an infrastructure that’s tailormade for your unique IT requirements. The FC830 provide flexible virtualization with great VM density and highly scalable resources for the consolidation of large or performance-hungry VMs, and also offers a rich set of storage options, including the PowerEdge FD332 storage block, which provides up to 16 direct-attached drives

The efficiencies of shared infrastructure

FC830 servers are housed in the FX2 enclosure, a 2U converged platform delivering the density of a blade architecture with the simplicity and cost benefits of rack-based systems — all in a compact modular design. The FX2 delivers efficiency through shared power, cooling, networking and management, as well as PCIe slots and I/O module options that enable any style of storage — DAS, SAN or NAS.

Right-size your IT

Quickly and efficiently add resources to the chassis at the single block level, or add one or more fully loaded 2U enclosures. A single FX2 with two FC830 servers, scales up to 176 cores, 96 DIMMs of memory and 32 drives of in-server storage so you can readily tailor your infrastructure with the right power, storage and connectivity to meet your unique business needs.
