CH242 V3 Compute Node

The CH242 V3, based on the E7 v2 processor, provides high processing performance, scalability, and reliability to address computing-intensive applications and supports efficient, flexible mission-critical enterprise services. Use the CH242 V3 for large data sets and transaction-intensive databases, ERP, BI platform. It can also apply to cloud computing and virtualization.

High computing performance, scalability, and reliability

  • Supports new-generation Intel® Xeon® E7-4800 v2 series 8-core, 10-core, 12-core, and 15-core high-performance processors based on the Brickland platform, and provides outstanding computing performance with up to four 15-core 2.8 GHz processors.
  • 4-socket compute node installed in a full-width slot, supports up to a maximum of 32 DDR3 DIMMs at 1.5 times the usual height that apply to mainstream granules, addressing large-memory-capacity applications at low cost.
  • Supports a maximum of eight 2.5-inch SAS HDDs, SATA HDDs, or SSDs, and provides a maximum of 3 PCIe slots for standard PCIe cards.
  • Uses a real-time, accurate error-checking and fault tolerance mechanism, and supports WHEA and eMCA Gen1.

Provides efficient, secure power consumption analysis and control capabilities

  • Complies with Intel® NM 2.0 dynamic power capping specifications.
  • Completes power capping operations within 3 seconds.
  • Supports an intelligent, secure power-on mode.

Easy management with the intelligent platform

  • Reduces O&M costs by using remote deployment and fault locating methods including SOL, KVM over IP, virtual CD-ROM drive, and WebUIs in compliance with IPMI 2.0.
  • Support the black box function to facilitate fault location, quickly recovering services.
