A Versatile Server for Enterprise and HPC Workloads

Relion 2900e Server

The Relion 2900e is a versatile and balanced multi-purpose system that offers multiple options for storage and I/O configurations. The Relion 2900e is a great fit as an enterprise rack server as well as an HPC platform. RAS (Reliability, Availability, Serviceability) features like optional redundant power supplies, RAID options, IPMI 2.0 support and KVM-over-IP functionality make this platform a good fit for mission critical workloads. The Relion 2900e provides access to more PCI-E lanes which means more flexibility for I/O configurations. With up to eighteen cores per processor and up to 1.5TB of RAM, the system is also an excellent choice as a virtualization server. In addition to all these features, HPC customers will appreciate that the Relion 2900e supports RAM speeds up to 2400MHz, AVX2 (Advanced Vector Extensions) for higher throughput of floating point operations, as well as high memory bandwidth with four memory controllers per processors.
