|Wistron Selects AppliedMicro X-Gene® for New X5 Server Series OCP Compliant Chassis Design|
The jointly-engineered X5 Server platform, featuring X-Gene’s 64-bit ARMv8-A microarchitecture, couples the performance and power-efficiency of X-Gene 1, and is designed as a multi-services server platform solution. The fully-redundant 5U chassis platform is OCP compliant and offers several configuration options to support both compute and storage intensive applications. The X5 is a rack-mountable server system with a 10GE backplane that can support up to five compute node trays, each with four X-Gene CPUs, for a total of 20 compute nodes per chassis. The platform can also support five storage trays with one X-Gene CPU and either ten 3.5” hard disk drive (HDD) bays or 16 2.5” HDD bays per tray, enabling either 50 or 80 HDDs in a single chassis platform configuration.
This flexible design is easy to configure and deploy and is unique in that it can support multi-service customer requirements to deploy a combination of compute node and storage tray blades in the single chassis platform. The new platform will be on display at the OCP U.S. Summit taking place
