Density Optimized Servers Overview
What are Density-Optimized Servers?High-density or density optimized servers support high performance computing (HPC), or virtualization. These servers are generally deployed by companies offering cloud services, companies providing data center services, or others entities needing great computing power.
Cisco's UCS C-Series is a line of rack servers featuring high density editions.
HPE Moonshot is a density optimized server which integrates with HEP ProLiant blades to provide an alternative to rack mounted servers, offering modular scalability with less space, less power consumption, and less complexity. The ultra-converged HPE Moonshot delivers workload-optimization with brea…
Dell's PowerEdge C6420 is a density optimized server designed to support HPC and scale-out workloads with a flexible platform that offers up to 4 dual-socket servers and high-capacity storage in a 2U rack.
Cray offers the CS-Storm a supercomputer dedicated to performance intensive applications, a few suggested by the vendor being deep learning, machine learning, signal-processing, reservoir simulation, and other computational-intensive tasks.
Huawei FusionServer Pro X6000, the current iteration in the X Series, is a 2U, 4-node high-density server for data centers with scale-out architecture. It delivers increased levels of density to address the space and investment restrictions of data centers, and enables improved space usage and reduc…
