Achieve Proper Hyper-Convergence!

  • Scale up to 4 independent server nodes in 2RU
  • Up to 8 x Intel Xeon 2nd Generation Processors
  • SAS or SATA SSD up to 450K IOPS each (4k read) Ideal for Tier 1 Workloads
  • M.2 Slot for OS or caching
  • Flexible Networking option up to 8 x 100G or 16 x 25G ports in 2RU

System Configurator

We call this server a Ndovu for a reason. It's our biggest mover! Mostly due to the flexibility of the 4-Node 2U form with so much to work with - this allows you to scale up to 4 independent server nodes in 2RU!

Unleash Computing Performance

  • Faster socket interconnect, 1.5x memory bandwidth and 2x FLOPs peak performance capability with Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable Family.
  • Up to 440 vCPUs per server and 3.9x higher virtualized throughput compared with previous platform based on Intel® Xeon® processor E5.

Guaranteed Rapid I/O with Additional NVMe Storage Tier

  • Aside from the extra M.2 SSD on MB sleds, each T42SP computing node also supports two optional U.2 SSDs among the six drives
  • The two extra NVMe SSDs, serving as cache or hot storage tier, significantly reduces application response time.

Easy Service and Maintenance

  • Hot-pluggable PSU, FAN, HDD trays
  • Easy-swappable MB sleds spare technicians the need of removing the whole server chassis from the rack
  • Tool-less power distribution board (PDB) and fan cage modules minimize service down time
