170-series: 3-4 nodes per chassis
190-series: 2 nodes per chassis
The HPE Apollo 2600 server is a 2U/4-node building block. The nodes in each system have an identical hardware configuration.
Up to 4 slots in each chassis may be used for placement of HPE SimpliVity 2600 170-series nodes.
Up to 2 slots in each chassis may be used for placement of HPE SimpliVity 2600 190-series nodes.
Denser nodes provide a smaller datacenter footprint where space is a concern. However, keep in mind that the footprint for other datacenter resources such as power and heat and cooling is not necessarily reduced in the same way and that the concentration of nodes can potentially pose other challenges.
