Product Features and Benefits

  • Four hot-swappable, high density nodes with front access to the node trays with Dual Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 v2 product family per node, totaling 8 per 2U system.
  • Supports up to 16 RDIMM/UDIMM at up to 1866MT/s per node for up to 64 DIMMS per system.
  • Supports up to 4 hot-swappable 2.5" HDDs per node (16 per system)

Cirrascale RM2497 Quad-Node Rackmount Server Overview

Cirrascale's integrated platforms, such as the RM2497 utilizing the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v2 product family, are an ideal solution to refresh older IT infrastructure or for exceptionally efficient green field deployments. The newly released Intel® Xeon® processor E5 v2 family provides up to 50% more performance over the first generation of E5 series processors and can help customers reach new heights of performance never before experienced.

The RM2497 delivers an optimal airflow design throughout each computing tray, and a redundant power delivery system shared across the entire rack making it highly power efficient while helping your infrastructure achieve significant power savings compared to traditional rack systems in a short amount of time. Additionally, with up to 12 cores / 24 threads per socket, cache size increased up to 30MB, increased QPI frequency, and doubled inter-socket QPI links, the RM2498 utilizing the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v2 product family brings a significant increase in computing power and memory support for demanding server and datacenter applications.

Delivering the technologies needed to replace an inefficient and aging installed-base, Cirrascale's RM2498 series gives customers breakthrough performance, higher density, easier serviceability and increased energy savings.
