GIGABYTE Announces Server Products Both Big and Small

Many folks are familiar with the hardware lusted after by the PC enthusiast. For these folks, only the top performing video cards, motherboards, and processors will do. Throw in a couple tasteful mods, and you have a system that will be a head turner at your local LAN event. For those that work in Enterprise though, only those things that will mount in a rack will do. Well GIGABYTE has never been one to neglect this segment of the market, and they are announcing some new products that will crush your SysAdmin under the downdraft of his propeller beanie.


Chief amongst these announcements is the GA-9SISL Intel Avoton mini-ITX motherboard. This tiny little board supports the newest Intel Atom C2000 series SoC (System on a Chip) processors, and sports the features needed to build a small server that sips power while serving files, printing, or media. Here's a quick rundown of the features from GIGABYTE.

  • 4 x regular DIMM slots supporting ECC memory. Cheaper and more flexible solution compared to SO-DIMM slots usually found on competing Mini-ITX products
  • 1 x PCIe x16 slot for additional storage or network features
  • 4 x Gigabit LAN ports for flexible network configurations
  • 1 separate management LAN port to access the board's remote management functions
  • A board placement optimized for rackmount integration
  • Rear interface includes buttons and LEDs designed to match the maintenance workflow of such integration.
  • 6 storage ports, which can be complemented with a storage PCIe card

There's even more in the press release GIGABYTE sent us, and you can view that below. It's huge, and runs the gamut from the tiny motherboard above to a full 2U mutli-node server that works much like a Blade server chassis.

GIGABYTE Announces Server Products Both Big and Small

Taipei, Taiwan, May 21st 2014 - GIGABYTE Technology, a leading creator of high performance server hardware, has released today new server products. Among them, the GA-9SISL is GIGABYTE's first server motherboard based on Intel®'s new server-optimized Atom™ processor family:

 

A New Lightweight Champion

Intel® Avoton Mini-ITX Board

The GA-9SISL delivers the revolutionary performance of the new Intel® Atom™ processors C2000 family on a platform including all the features required to be the new favorite choice for light and scalable server applications.GIGABYTE Announces Server Products Both Big and Small
In addition to the excellent computing power and energy consumption ratio offered by the Intel® Atom™ C2750 processor, the GA-9SISL features:
  • 4 x regular DIMM slots supporting ECC memory. Cheaper and more flexible solution compared to SO-DIMM slots usually found on competing Mini-ITX products.
  • 1 x PCIe x16 slot for additional storage or network features.
  • 4 x Gigabit LAN ports for flexible network configurations.
  • 1 separate management LAN port to access the board's remote management functions.
  • A board placement optimized for rackmount integration. Also, its rear interface includes buttons and LEDs designed to match the maintenance workflow of such integration.
  • 6 storage ports, which can be complemented with a storage PCIe card.
This combination of features make the GA-9SISL a perfect solution to build microservers, lightweight redundant configurations, web hosting arrays, network appliances, and much more.

Intel® Atom™ Processor C2750

The new Intel® Atom™ processors C2000 family offers a breakthrough boost in performance, memory capacity and power efficiency over the previous Atom™ generations. It is now the ideal choice for a server deployment requiring high density and low power consumption for light and scalable workloads.The Intel® Atom™ processors C2750 is part of the 2nd generation of Intel® Atom™ SoC (System on a Chip) for servers. This octo-core processor delivers performance up to 7 times higher, memory capacity up to 8 times higher, and energy efficiency up to 6 times higher than the previous Atom™ generation.

In addition to this leap in performance, this processor also includes datacenter class features:

  • Improved data integrity and system uptime through ECC memory support.
  • Faster and richer virtualization usages thanks to the Intel® VT-x Technology.
  • Stronger processing and management of storage and network loads.
  • Transparent and flexible integration through x86 compatibility.

The other server products released today by GIGABYTE are different flavors of existing products with variations in their specifications aimed at answering different user needs in different usage models.

GA-7PESVL

With the strictly essential features expected from this category of server board, the GA-7PESVL is a new point of entry into the Xeon E5-2600 V2 environment. Addressed to users needing a dual socket platform at the most competitive price, this product still delivers a large storage connectivity, four PCIe x16 slots, and GIGABYTE's complete set of remote board management features:
GIGABYTE Announces Server Products Both Big and Small
  • Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 & E5-2600 V2 product families
  • 8 x RDIMM/UDIMM ECC DIMM slots
  • 2 x GbE LAN ports (Intel® I210)
  • 2 x SATA III 6Gb/s + 8 x SATA II 3Gb/s
  • Aspeed® AST2300 remote management controller

GA-7PXSL1

Coming with an ATX form factor, this dual socket motherboard is the quad Gigabit Ethernal LAN version of our existing GA-7PXSL. Unlike the few comparable designs on the market, this product is designed with standard sockets and is fully compatible with the socket 2011 cooling devices from the retail market.
Moreover, its unconventional socket placement for an ATX board is designed for a chassis airflow that will cool both processors with the same efficiency. The heat of one will not be transferred to the other and impair its operating capabilities. The user can therefore be guaranteed that the performance potential of his two expensive Xeon CPUs will be fully exploited.
Combined with a quad Gigabit Ethernet LAN solution and GIGABYTE's complete set of remote management features, the GA-7PXSL1 is a perfect candidate to build CPU-based render farms, slim computing servers, or compact workstations.
GIGABYTE Announces Server Products Both Big and Small
  • Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 & E5-2600 V2 product families
  • 8 x RDIMM/UDIMM ECC DIMM slots
  • ATX form factor
  • 4 x GbE LAN ports (Intel® 82574L)
  • 2 x USB 3.0, 2 x USB 2.0 ports
  • 2 x SATA III 6Gb/s + 6 x SATA II 3Gb/s
  • 2 x USB 2.0, 1 x audio headers
  • Aspeed® AST2300 remote management controller
