The PowerEdge R840 unit for the Dell EMC Integrated System dense is available pre-racked in a Dell Technologies rack and PDU. It can also be ordered without the rack and PDU, and then integrated into a customer-provided dedicated rack and PDU.
If the customer-provided rack and PDU option is selected, Dell Technologies configures the servers in its factory. It then ships the components in a mini-transport rack that is designed for convenient transport and availability of the components. The following figure shows a four-node dense configuration in a mini rack.

Dell Technologies service installs the components into the customer-provided rack before completing the Azure deployment.
The following table lists the number of mini racks that are shipped based on the number of SUs that are ordered.

The following figures show switch and server placement for a minimum 4-node configuration up to 16-node configuration. The solution comes pre-racked, stacked, and cabled. It is ready for a Dell Technologies Engineer to configure into your data center and to complete the deployment as an IaaS platform.
Additional Dell Technologies consulting services are available to help you tailor Dell EMC Integrated System for Microsoft Azure Stack Hub.
