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.
Note: If you use a customer-provided rack and PDU, the customer must ensure that they have the required power and space for serviceability. For information, see Environmental requirements.
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 Dell EMC Integrated System—dense 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.
