The Dell FX2 or FX2s is a new 2U rack-based converged computing platform that provides a greater dimension of functional flexibility, along with a higher density of processing power. The FX2 and FX2s chassis are the exact same except that the FX2 supports only Ethernet I/O Module and has no PCIe slots. The FX2s supports Ethernet as well as other I/O module options and comes with PCIe slots. The FX2 or FX2s combines the density of blades with the advantages of rack-based systems. Its modular design enables building blocks of resources that can be multiple combinations of compute and storage nodes configured in a number of variations, depending on the intended use of the platform and the amount of resource required.
