configurations:
v 2U compute server: a 2U chassis that contains two dx340 system-board trays
v 2U input/output server: a 2U chassis that contains one dx340 system-board tray
v 2U storage server: a 2U chassis that contains one dx340 system-board tray and

Note: The illustrations in this document might differ slightly from your hardware.

2U compute server

The 2U compute server consists of two identical dx340 system-board trays installed
in a 2U chassis. Each system-board tray has one PCI adapter connector and one
3.5-inch hard disk drive bay that might be configured to hold two 2.5-inch hard disk
drives. The following illustration shows a 3.5-inch simple-swap SATA hard disk drive
installed. A 3.5-inch simple-swap SAS hard disk drive configuration and a 2.5-inch
hot-swap SAS hard disk drive configuration are also available.

2U input/output server

The 2U input/output server consists of one dx340 system-board tray with the I/O
enclosure installed in a 2U chassis. The I/O enclosure provides one additional
3.5-inch hard disk bay or six additional 2.5-inch drive bays, and two PCIe slots for
the system-board tray. You can configure the 2U input/output server with up to two
3.5-inch hard disk drives or up to eight 2.5-inch hard disk drives. The following
illustration shows two 3.5-inch simple-swap SATA hard disk drives installed.
