Compute nodes

Compute nodes contain components such as microprocessors, memory, Ethernet controllers, and hard disk drives. They receive power and network connections from the Flex System Enterprise Chassis.

The Flex System Enterprise Chassis supports up to fourteen 1-bay compute nodes or up to seven 2-bay compute nodes when the chassis shelves are removed.
