Hard disk drive expansion bays (depending on the model):

One of the following configurations:

  • Four 2.5-inch simple-swap SAS hard disk drive bays

As a general consideration, do not mix standard 512-byte and advanced 4-KB format drives in the same RAID array because it might lead to potential performance issues.
3TB hard disk drives are not supported in OS 4690.

PCI expansion slots:

Supports two PCI riser slots on the riser card:
  • Slot 1 is dedicated for ServeRAID-10il V2 SAS/SATA controller
  • Slot 2 supports one PCI Express Gen2 x8 half-length, full-height adapter
Power supply (depending on the model):
  • One fixed 300-watt power supply
  • Up to two hot-swap 460-watt power supplies for redundancy

Fan: The server comes standard with four speed-controlled fans.

Integrated functions:
  • Integrated Management Module II (IMM2), which consolidates multiple management functions in a single chip
  • Intel 82574L Gb Ethernet controller with TCP/IP Offload Engine (TOE) and Wake on LAN support
  • Six Universal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0 ports (two front and four rear)
  • Two Ethernet ports
  • Six-port integrated SATA controller
  • One serial port
  • One VGA port
RAID controllers (depending on the model):
  • Software RAID capabilities that support RAID levels 0, 1, and 10
  • ServeRAID-BR10il v2 SAS/SATA adapter that provides RAID levels 0, 1, and 10

RAID controllers (depending on the model):

  • Software RAID capabilities that support RAID levels 0, 1, and 10

  1. Power consumption and heat output vary depending on the number and type of optional features installed and the power-management optional features in use.
  2. The sound levels were measured in controlled acoustical environments according to the procedures specified by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) S12.10 and ISO 7779 and are reported in accordance with ISO 9296. Actual sound-pressure levels in a given location might exceed the average values stated because of room reflections and other nearby noise sources. The noise emission level stated in the declared (upper limit) sound-power level, in bels, for a random sample of system.
  3. There is no keyboard connector or mouse connector on the server. You can connect a USB keyboard and USB mouse to the server by using the USB connectors.
