SCALE-OUT SOLUTION FOUNDATION

2U Single-Node Server: Core of Many HDS Appliances and Solutions

Performance to Drive Demanding Applications
One or two multi-core Intel Xeon E5 CPUs with 24 slots for high-speed DDR4 memory deliver exceptional power.
Flexible Networking and I/O
Two on-board 10G Ethernet ports and a wide selection of I/O expansion and controller modules create a versatile base.
Enterprise-Class Reliability, Availability and Serviceability (RAS)
Redundant 80 Plus Gold power supplies and advanced thermal design reduce energy consumption and add resiliency with optional redundant drives.

PERFORMANCE FOR SCALE-OUT DATA CENTER VIRTUALIZATION

Rack-Optimized 2U Four-Node Server Delivers Power and High Reliability

High-Density Data Center Virtualization Solutions
Up to four server nodes, each powered by dual Xeon E5 processors with 16 high-speed DDR4 memory slots, provide the power of 8 CPUs in just two rack units of space.
Large Internal Storage Capacity Expands Solution Options
Twenty-four hot-pluggable bays for SSDs and HDDs can power solutions with internal storage as well as traditional array-based virtualization solutions.
Flexible Networking and I/O
Each node includes both low-profile PCIe and mezzanine slots for I/O bandwidth and connectivity options, demanded by enterprise virtualization.
Features for Enterprise-Class High Availability
Redundant hot-swappable drives and power supplies add system resiliency.
