The PowerEdge FX Architecture - scaling business performance without compromise

An adaptable IT infrastructure is critical in helping enterprises keep pace with advances in computing technology. The Dell EMC PowerEdge FX converged architecture provides a flexible, modular platform that can be easily customized to match the requirements of specific data center and multi-cloud workloads.



Scalable Architecture


To address the challenges introduced by the latest computing trends as well as to reduce reliance on legacy, siloed equipment and operations, the PowerEdge FX converged architecture is designed to give enterprises the flexibility to tailor their IT infrastructure to specific workloads — and the ability to scale and adapt that infrastructure as needs change over time with zero-growth form-factor options. PowerEdge FX helps deliver the agility, flexibility and secure foundation that businesses need to simplify their operations and increase their business results.


Innovative modular design


The PowerEdge FX architecture is based on a modular, concept that makes it easy for enterprises to focus processing resources precisely where they are needed. This concept is realized through the PowerEdge FX2 chassis, the foundation of the FX architecture. The FX2 is a 2U platform that combines the density and efficiencies of blades with the simplicity and cost advantages of rack-based systems. The FX2 hosts flexible blocks of server and storage resources while providing outstanding efficiencies through shared power, networking, I/O and management within the chassis itself. Although each server block has some local storage, the FX architecture allows servers to access multiple types of storage, such as a centralized storage area network (SAN) or direct-attached storage (DAS) in FX storage blocks. Software-defined storage environments including VMware vSAN can readily benefit with the FX2 high-density storage elements. The PowerEdge FX architecture lets data centers easily support an IT-as-a-service approach because it is specifically designed to fit the scale-out model that this approach embraces. In data centers of all sizes, deployments incorporating the FX architecture are designed to be right-sized, efficient and cost effective.
