Dell brings three more PowerEdge FX modules to Canada

Dell announced Thursday three new additions to its PowerEdge FX portfolio to offer enterprises more options in meeting application demands.

These include the FD332, FC430 and FC830 for the 2U converged infrastructure chassis.

“The Dell PowerEdge FX portfolio will … offer enterprises even more options for changing application demands… and to help organizations quickly configure complete workloads using modular building blocks of IT resources,” Dell said in a statement.

The PowerEdge FD322 is a half-width storage block with up to 16 direct-attached small form factor storage devices, allowing provisioning of up to 48 SFF storage devices in a 2U FX2 chassis.

The FC430, meanwhile, is a quarter-width, half-height server block that, according to Dell, has the ability to host applications in smaller servers to minimize risk of system failures.

Lastly, the FC830 is a full-width, half-height 4-socket server block featuring up to four next-generation multi-core Intel Xeon processors, has 3TB of memory, up to 8 PCIe expansion slots, up to sixteen 1.8-inch SATA flash drives or eight 2.5-inch drives, a dual-port 10Gb SNA and support for Express Flash NVMe PCIe SSDs.  Dell says that it is meant for running database driven, mission critical applications for midsize and large businesses.

The first two models are now available in Canada while the FC830 will be available in June.
