Equus Compute Solutions announces the release of its WHITEBOX OPEN R2660 and R2660 NVME servers, part of the Equus portfolio of custom cost-optimized open-hardware server and storage platforms. Incorporating dual Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs and new open-hardware features, the R2660 servers are high-performance compute solutions for demanding applications such as content delivery, cloud services, business applications, and virtualization. These servers are ideal for content delivery network providers (CDNs), cloud services providers (CSPs), value-added resellers (VARs), and enterprise IT.
The 2U 12 Bay R2660 server features 12 3.5” hot-swap HDD bays and 16 DIMMs for up to 2TB of memory. The R2660 also features OCP slots that accommodate multi-vendor cards including 1, 10, 40, 50, 100 Gbps Ethernet NICs, and NVMe/SSD storage modules. The R2660, like all of the WHITEBOX OPEN server platforms, can be customized to exact end-user specifications.
The R2660 NVMe version of this server supports eight 3.5”/2.5” hot-swap HDD bays and four NVMe bays for customer applications that demand higher storage performance.
The R2660 and R2660 NVMe support all the WHITEBOX OPEN features, including OpenBMC system management, which is the open-source implementation of the Baseboard Management Controller firmware stack that works across heterogeneous systems and can free companies from proprietary system management vendor lock-in. The R2660 servers also support LinuxBoot to customize the server BIOS for flexibility, improve security, and create a lightning-fast boot experience. Each server’s OCP networking enables it to utilize NC-SI (network controller sideband interface) in-band network management communication, removing the need for a separate IPMI 1GbE management port and the associated dedicated network that in turn generates cost savings, frees rack space, and reduces cabling complexity.
The R2660 and R2660 NVMe servers are shipping now. Technical details on all the WHITEBOX OPEN servers are available here: https://www.equuscs.com/servers/whitebox-open/ .
