The SDS-3U-4i is a formidable 3U rugged server platform designed to deliver exceptional performance and versatility. Equipped with two Intel Scalable Processors, this server provides a feature-packed solution for GPU or FPGA accelerated computing, U.2/U.3 NVMe storage, and PCIe Gen 4 expansion slots.
One of the key advantages of the SDS-3U-4i is its size efficiency and edge readiness. With a compact 3U height and a shallow 20″ depth, this server is optimized for edge computing scenarios. It can operate as a standalone hyperconverged PCIe Gen 4 server, delivering powerful computing capabilities in a space-saving form factor. Alternatively, it can serve as the core CPU and memory resources for a scale-out, rack-level solution, allowing for expandability and composability in the shallowest available racks.
The SDS-3U-4i boasts an impressive array of features. It features six PCIe Gen 4 x16 full-height slots, four of which are double-width, providing ample expansion possibilities for additional accelerators or networking cards. Additionally, it includes one PCIe Gen 4 x8 full-height slot for further customization. The server also offers options for 8 or 16 SATA/SAS/NVMe drives, allowing for flexible storage configurations to suit various needs.
In terms of memory capacity, the SDS-3U-4i supports up to 4TB, enabling efficient data processing and handling of memory-intensive workloads. It is further enhanced with a resource-expanded BIOS, facilitating scale-out device enumeration and large memory mapped I/O, particularly beneficial for GPUs and accelerators.
Overall, the SDS-3U-4i is a professional-grade, feature-rich server platform that delivers exceptional performance and flexibility. Its rugged design, combined with its compact form factor and diverse expansion options, makes it an ideal choice for edge computing environments where space, reliability, and processing power are paramount.
