Dell PowerEdge FD332 CTO Storage Block server product description

A half-width storage block, the Dell PowerEdge FD332 provides up to 48 small direct-connect form factor (SFF) storage devices in an FX2 chassis, enabling dense, highly flexible and scalable computing solutions.

The FX architecture brings greater flexibility and density to data center infrastructures with relatively “small” blocks that allow you to add resources incrementally and adapt an infrastructure optimized for specific workloads. The Dell PowerEdge FD332 CTO Storage Block fulfills the storage component of the FX promise.

With up to 16 devices on each FD332, you can flexibly provision up to 48 SFF storage devices in an FX2 2U chassis. (This example leaves a half-width slot to house a PowerEdge FC640 for processing.) The flexibility provided by the modular components of the FX architecture results in 2U rack computing with massive direct attached storage (DAS) capacity, allowing pay-as-you-go to grow. the IT model.

FX servers can be connected to a single FD332 or multiple FD332s and can be connected to all 16 devices on the block or, when using dual RAID controllers, split access and connect to eight devices separately. Therefore, you can combine FX servers and storage in a wide variety of configurations to meet specific processing needs. Additionally, the software can be employed to pool storage connected to multiple controllers or FD332s on FX servers. With the latest support for Dell EMC HBA330, VMware vSAN environments support FX2 and FD332.

Each FD332 accommodates up to 16 hot-plug SAS or SATA drives (SSD/HDD) in a removable front side-loading drive bay cover. Units can be independently serviced while the FX2 chassis is in operation.

Intuitive system management with intelligent automation

The Dell OpenManage systems management portfolio simplifies and automates server lifecycle management – ​​making IT operations more efficient and Dell servers more productive, reliable and cost-effective. The agentless integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with the Lifecycle Controller makes server deployment, configuration and updates automated and efficient. As the FD332 is direct-attached storage, it is monitored by the iDRAC – just like any DAS storage on any PowerEdge server. Using the Chassis Management Controller (CMC), an integrated component that is part of all FX2 chassis, you will have the option to manage components individually or collectively through its browser-based interface. The CMC gives the administrator the option of connecting one or two controllers on the FD332 to one or two hosts.

Heavy workloads, not a problem

The FD332's flexibility and scalability allows it to extend customer environments from traditional IT to high-end service providers. The FD332 is an excellent choice for enabling dense virtual SAN clusters, combining compute and storage blocks. It can also help consolidate applications like Hadoop that require high-performance, low-cost, scale-out storage. It is also ideal for centralized database-based software that needs scalability and expansion. With support for HBA330, the FD332 is vSAN ready, enabling high-performance operations and available in single or dual configurations. The FD332 may support Microsoft Windows Spaces Direct, with certification coming in the near future.
