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 Carrier-Grade chassis.

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