The Advantech SKY-8200 is a highly configurable carrier-grade server designed to balance the best in x86 server-class processing performance with maximum I/O and offload density in a 20” depth chassis. The system is a cost effective, highly available platform optimized to meet next-generation networking equipment needs. It is specifically designed for high density PCIe card payloads where maximum port count is needed or the integration of industry leading offload and acceleration technology is essential. The PCIe I/O is balanced between CPU sockets for optimum throughput. The power and cooling options along with the streamlined mechanical design make it ideal for Digital Signal Processing (DSP) payloads for video encoding/decoding, transcoding and transrating applications.
SKY-8200 system variant caters for higher power and cooling requirements when NEBS certification is not mandatory. Architected around two Intel® Xeon® E5 v3 Series processors, the SKY-8200 combines cutting-edge performance with the ruggedness, reliability, and long system lifecycles required by networking equipment providers. The system supports dual Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3 processors (105W E5-2658v3, 75W E5-2648Lv3 and E5-2628Lv3) and DDR4 memory up to 1024GB with 16 DIMM sockets. The system provides hot-swappable and redundant 1400W(AC) &1200W(DC) power supply modules, 3 sets of hot-swappable fans, 4 hot-swappable hard disk drives connected to LSI 3008 SAS controller, and 6 PCIe expansion slots.
The SKY-8200 is designed for NEBS Level 3 carrier grade environments and where limited rack space is available. Interoperability testing is performed with a wide selection of third-party PCIe card vendors.
