Quanta Server F03A

High Density 2U4N design for maximum performance

The Rackgo X F03A is designed for the highest compute density with four nodes in a 2 OU space. Each node can install up to two SATADOMs for the operating system and up to four extra hot-swappable SSD/HDDs for cache or data storage. Its RAID-ready configuration preserves data integrity and avoids data corruption.

Vanity Free Design for better MTBF

By centralizing power supplies in the rack and removing unnecessary components from the system, the F03A enhances system MTBF by 58% compared to other conventional 2U4N systems in the market. This will avoid system downtime caused by component failure and minimize maintenance efforts.

VGA-redirection for on-site troubleshooting

F03A offers an optional dual-port 10Gbps SFP+ mezzanine card with an ASPEED 2300 chip, providing VGA-redirection for datacenters requiring on-site troubleshooting.
