A quarter-width, two-socket FX architecture server, the Dell PowerEdge FC430 offers the ultimate in shared infrastructure density with the option for smaller, physicallydiscrete servers. With the perfect balance of performance, memory and high-speed I/O to rapidly deliver resources to applications, the FC430 is ideal for mainstream enterprise workloads, including midsized virtualization and database environments, and is an excellent choice for distributed environments needing higher levels of reliability. With the ability to host applications in smaller, physically discrete servers, the FC430 can help minimize the scope of potential system failures.

Optimize for workload

The FC430 offers choices:

  • Two 18-core Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4 processors, or a singlesocket Intel Xeon E5-1600 v3 alternative
  • Two 1.8-inch drives or one 1.8-inch drive with a front-access mezzanine port Mellanox InfiniBand connection.

All configurations have up to 8 DIMMs of memory and a dual port 10Gb LOM for networking. Each FC430 has access to one PCIe 3.0 expansion slot.

Implement higher reliability

One of the FC430’s distinguishing features is its quarter-width size. It can run multiple applications as a virtualized environment, or house the operations of different clients as a dedicated host. Either way, it offers the benefit of higher reliability through physical separation; one server failing does not disrupt the operation of virtual machines or clients running on other servers.

Right-size your IT

React at the speed of business with the highly flexible FX architecture. Add resources to the chassis at the single server level or add one or more fully loaded 2U enclosures. An FX2 chassis fully loaded with eight FC430s has 224 cores and 48 DIMMs of memory available for processing — all in a dense 2U space.

Innovative management with intelligent automation

The Dell OpenManage systems management portfolio simplifies and automates server life-cycle management — making IT operations more efficient and Dell servers the most productive, reliable and cost effective. Dell’s agent-free integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller makes server deployment, configuration and updates automated and efficient. Using Chassis Management Controller (CMC), an embedded component that is part of every FX2 chassis, you’ll have the choice of managing FC430 server nodes individually or collectively via a browser-based interface.

OpenManage Essentials provides enterprise-level monitoring and control of Dell and third-party data center hardware and works with OpenManage Mobile to provide similar information on smart phones. OpenManage Essentials now also delivers server configuration management capabilities that automate bare-metal server and OS deployments, replication of configurations, and ensures ongoing compliance with set system configurations.
