With the recent release of the Intel Xeon SP CPUs, I realized it’s been a year since I’ve updated my blade server comparison chart. Below is an updated chart to help guide you to the best blade server for your project.
(UPDATED 12.21.2017) The new architecture of the Intel Xeon SP (aka Skylake) CPU includes more memory channels, which is creating some uncertainty on best practices. In today’s post, I’ll show you the best configurations to consider to help drive high memory performance.
Today Intel officially launches the next generation rack, tower and blade server CPU – the Intel Xeon Scalable Processor (SP), formerly known as “Skylake.” Before you invest in this next generation compute, there are a few things you need to know.
On June 20th, Lenovo released information about their upcoming blade servers built on the upcoming Intel Xeon processor: the two processor ThinkSystem SN550 and the four processor ThinkSystem SN850. Although there doesn’t appear to be any spec sheets yet on the products, there are a few things that can be extracted from the published 3D tour.
