Congatec has launched 5 new modules to its Xeon D-2700 processor-based Server-on-Module portfolio. The modules will fulfill the trade calls for for edge server efficiency in a small type issue. The rugged and outside succesful modules are available in a compact 160×160 COM-HPC Server Dimension D efficiency class. The module options processors with as much as 20 cores making it appropriate for duties corresponding to internet hosting a number of real-time functions concurrently. Furthermore, these modules present double throughput per PCIe lane to Gen 4 speeds, in addition to as much as 100 GbE connectivity and TCC/TSN help.
In accordance with the corporate, the launch underlines the huge trade demand for edge server efficiency in a small type issue that’s rugged and outside succesful. To scale back the dimensions the modules have lowered the variety of RAM slots from 8 to 4 bars, however the modules can help 512 GB of DDR4 RAM at 2,933 MT/s. Goal functions of the brand new Intel Xeon D-2700 processor-based COM-HPC modules are deeply embedded, space-constrained edge server deployments with excessive knowledge throughput however much less memory-intensive workloads. These are appropriate for IIoT-networked real-time environments of producing items, warehouses, good factories and different crucial infrastructures.
“Our present launch is finest described as ‘much less is extra’: Blended-critical edge server functions don’t must deal with RAM-intensive server workloads. Relatively, they should host a number of real-time functions side-by-side and due to this fact require as many cores as doable. In addition they should meet the calls for of business communications with many small message packets that must be processed in real-time. Once more, reminiscence isn’t as crucial in comparison with database-driven net servers which can be utilized by 1000’s of individuals in parallel. It’s true that clients can function COM-HPC Server Dimension E modules with solely 4 RAM bars. Nonetheless, saving area can be essential for them. That’s why we now additionally provide the Intel Xeon processor in COM-HPC Server Dimension D,” explains Martin Danzer, Head of Product Administration at congatec.
The brand new COM-HPC Server-on-Modules presents help for Home windows, Linux and VxWorks. The modules have a large goal software which incorporates industrial workload consolidation servers for automation, robotics, and so forth. The modules will also be used for imaginative and prescient enabled functions corresponding to autonomous autos and even in video infrastructure for security and safety. Moreover, it may be employed for outside servers for utilities and demanding infrastructures – corresponding to good grids for oil, gasoline and electrical energy in addition to rail and communication networks.
