An impressively powerful two-socket FX converged architecture server, the Dell PowerEdge FC630 is designed to be a workhorse for data centers looking for new levels of efficiency and density in an incredibly small footprint.
With powerful processors, impressively large memory and highly scalable I/O capabilities, the PowerEdge FC630 excels at running applications for midsize and large businesses, like enterprise resource planning and customer relationship management. Combining exceptional performance and functional flexibility, the FC630 is also ideal for large databases or substantial virtualization environments.
Flexible, scalable, powerful
Powered by up to two 18-core Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 processors, each FC630 has 24 DIMMs of memory, two 2.5-inch or four 1.8-inch frontaccess drives, a 10Gb SNA and access to two PCI Express (PCIe) expansion slots in the shared chassis.
Fit the infrastructure to the job
With the capability to handle demanding business applications and the databases that support them, the future FC630 is the perfect building block for the core of a corporate data center. Offering exceptional performance and a rich set of storage options, including the FD332 storage block with up to 16 direct attached drives, the FX architecture enables you to build an infrastructure that is tailor-made to suit your unique IT requirements.
The efficiencies of shared infrastructure
FC630 servers are housed in the FX2 enclosure — a 2U rack-based converged platform that delivers 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 expansion slots and I/O module options that enable DAS, SAN or NAS storage.
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 FC630 serer nodes individually or collectively via a browser-based interface.
OpenManage Essentials provides enterprise-level monitoring and control of Dell and third-partydata 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.
