Driving Down Hosting TCO with the QuantaMicro Series
- New Generation Platform with Performance Enhancement
- Embedded Switches to Lower Network Per Port Cost
- Space-saving Ultra-dense Chassis Design
- Multi-functional Serviceability
Hybrid, High Density and High Efficiency
The QuantaMicro X10E-9N is a microserver built upon the Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v5 product family, supporting up to 9 server nodes in a compact 3U chassis. Dedicated to attaining the best space, energy , and cost efficiency, this high-compute-density and low-power system is the best suited for the growing number of hyper-scale workloads found inside modern datacenters.
Enhances Manageability and Reduces TCO
The QuantaMicro X10E-9N simplifies data center management by merging up to 9 independent server nodes into a single system, significantly enhancing manageability by allowing the control of all nodes in the chassis at once. The converged infrastructure also integrates switches; this eliminates the necessity for an extra Top-of-Rack switch, considerably improving network cabling service time and significantly reducing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
Increased Performance at Optimal Energy Efficiency and Lower OPEX
Embedded with the latest Intel® Xeon® E3-1200 v5 Skylake processors, the next-gen QuantaMicro X10E-9N not only enhances computing performance by 10% compared to its predecessor, but also boosts its memory performance by 33%, while lowering power consumption by at least 20%. By sharing a set of redundant power supplies and cooling modules across all nodes and switches, this efficient architecture enhances energy efficiency and reduces operational expenses (OPEX).
Conceived with serviceability as a top priority, the QuantaMicro X10E-9N comprises hot-swappable servers, switches and PSU, all designed to be cold- aisle operational for easy service access. This flexible chassis comes in a 4 x 2.5” SSD/HDD SKU option for optimal throughput or a 2 x 3.5” SKU option for extended storage capacity. Since the 3.5” SKU can also install 2.5” drives without additional modification, this refined microserver opens up the door for 1 x 3.5” + 1 x 2.5” hybrid mode to handle more specific computing workloads as the cloud service market matures.

Installation / Setup Tips (3)
- 1. Cannot run under Administrative privileges java based Disk Management Utility under windows 2012
- 2. If user has run into an issue when setting up the bios that causes a no boot screen.
- 3. RHEL 7.2 becomes black screen and "PECI over DMI interface error" logged in the BMC from boot splash to login screen.
