GIGABYTE Presents Its New High-Density Rackmount Servers

Based on Intel® Xeon E5-2600 V3 Processors

Taipei, Taiwan, January 13th 2015 - GIGABYTE Technology, a leading creator of high performance server hardware, presents today its two latest models of high-density rackmount servers. Based on the Intel® C612 platform, these 2U rackmounts feature four trays hosting a dual socket computing node each, and are differentiated by different onboard LAN solutions and storage connectors. 

H270-F4G High Density Rackmount Server

H270-F4G: Dual 10GbE QSFP+ Per Node

H270-F4G High Density Rackmount Server Node

The nodes of the H270-F4G are all equipped with an Intel® 82599ES network controller and a single QSFP+ fiber port capable of two separate 10GbE signals.

For users requiring an even larger network bandwidth, this model is also available with an Intel
® XL710-AM1 (previously known as Fortville) controller capable of a 40GbE signal.

H270-H70: Entry Level High Density Server

The H270-H70 is simply an entry level version of the model above. The four nodes of this version are not equipped with the same LAN solution as the H270-F4G, as they each have two GbE LAN ports driven by an 
Intel® I350 controller. 

Common Features
DDR4 Memory Performance Edge
On Intel's previous server platforms, by design the maximum supported memory frequency has always been automatically downgraded the more DIMMs were being added on a server motherboard. As this trade-off between performance and capacity represents a dilemma to many memory-hungry server applications, GIGABYTE offers a unique solution. All our motherboards based on the LGA 2011-3 socket support by default a maximum frequency of 2133 MHz in any memory configuration :

Easy BIOS Update
Because updating the version of a BIOS can be a troublesome experience, GIGABYTE has developed an integrated function (no utility to install) that lets you update the BIOS of your system(s) :
  • Without having to install CPU(s), memory, drives, operating system, etc.
  • Without having to power on the system (but a power supply must be installed and connected to an outlet)
  • One board at a time via our standard IPMI 2.0 web interface
  • Multiple boards simultaneously via command line

Intel® Xeon® Processors E5-2600/1600 V3 Product Family
Based on the Haswell microarchitecture, these new Intel® processor families bring a whole new set of performance enhancing features. In addition to the usual boost in frequencies and core numbers, the Intel® Xeon E5-1600/2600 V3 families are the first in the server industry to support the brand new DDR4 memory technology. 

Moreover, these new processors include encryption performance overhead reduction features, and technologies improving run time and migration VM integrity.
