Unleashing Computing Performance

Upgrade with Higher Computing Performance

Faster socket interconnect, 1.5x memory bandwidth and 2x FLOPs peak performance capability with Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable Family.

Up to 440 vCPUs per server and 3.9x higher virtualized throughput compared with previous platform based on Intel® Xeon® processor E5.


Additional M.2 SSD for OS Installation 

  • Extra M.2 riser equipped on each MB sled provides a faster and larger boot disk options and allocates PCIe I/O slots and drive bay for other uses

  • Flexible to support both SATA and PCIe M.2 devices



Shared Infrastructure Provides Better Space and Energy Utilization 

  • Double compute density compared to regular 1U rackmount servers

  • Shared power supplies and cooling system further boosts resource utilization

  • Smart chassis management to distribute precise airflow and power to each node dynamically

  • Support for the industry’s most efficient 80 Plus Platinum PSU options

Easy Service and Maintenance

Upgrade with Higher Computing Performance
  • Hot-pluggable PSU, FAN, HDD trays

  • Easy-swappable MB sleds spare technicians the need of removing the whole server chassis from the rack

  • Tool-less power distribution board (PDB) and fan cage modules minimize service down time

  • Intuitive data center management with QCT System Manager (QSM) via integration with industry standard RESTful API and Intel® Rack Scale Design (RSD)
