The Dell PowerEdge FX2 enclosure is the uniquely small modular foundation for the PowerEdge FX architecture, an extremely flexible and efficient platform for building an IT infrastructure that precisely fits your computing needs. The PowerEdge FX2 is a 2U hybrid rack-based computing platform that combines the density and efficiencies of blades with the simplicity and cost benefits of rack-based systems.

Flexible configurations, more choice

The FX architecture’s innovative modular design supports IT resource building blocks of varying sizes (compute, storage, networking and management) so data centers have greater flexibility to construct their infrastructures. The FX architecture includes the following server nodes and storage block:

  • PowerEdge FC830: 4-socket scale-up server with unprecedented density and expandability
  • PowerEdge FC630: 2-socket shared infrastructure workhorse
  • PowerEdge FC430: quarter-width, 2-socket server with outstanding density
  • PowerEdge FM120x4: world’s first enterprise-class microserver
  • PowerEdge FD332: ultimate dense direct-attached storage with unprecedented flexibility

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.

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.

The efficiencies of shared infrastructure

The FX2 enclosure allows servers and storage to share power, cooling, management and networking. It houses redundant power supply units (2000W, 1600W or 1100W) and eight cooling fans. The FX2’s compact flexible design, the FX2 lets you simply and efficiently add resources when and where you need them, so you can let demand and budget determine your level of investment.

Innovative management with intelligent automation

The Dell OpenManage systems management portfolio simplifies and automates server lifecycle 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 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.
