2U High Performance Edge Server based on Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable Family

  • 2U 430mm deep rackmount server with an operating temperature of -20 to 70 °C
  • Single Intel® Xeon® Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze Processor
  • 6 x DIMM sockets support up to 384GB DDR4 1600/1866/2133/2400/2666 MHz SDRAM (ECC/RDIMM/LRDIMM)
  • Rich I/O LAN port available
  • 1 x M.2 2280 SATA SSD
  • IPMI 2.0-compliant management with reliability and security enhancements
  • Optimized platform design for Industrial and Business Critical Robustness

The SKY-8211 series represents the next generation of white box servers designed to replace proprietary routers and gateways with an open programmable off-the-shelf platform entirely based on processors and network interfaces from Intel.  When deployed as virtual routers they provide the functionality of legacy, fixed-function routers with more flexibility and lower cost. The platforms are ideal for software defined networking deployment and are based on the highly versatile Intel Xeon Processor Scalable series enabling high performance control and dataplane processing. With multiple  front facing ethernet ports connected to a cost optimized planar PCIe board the platforms eliminate the need for multiple PCIe cards and offer all the physical connectivity advantages of an off-the-shelf enterprise or provider edge router. Together with software from leading ecosystem partners the SKY-8211 becomes the first modular programmable switch to eliminate specialized dataplane processing using non-Intel Architecture components.

The SKY-8211's are essentially highly configurable high performance servers designed to balance the best in x86 server-class processing with maximum I/O and offload density in a 2U 430mm depth chassis. The system is a cost effective, robust platform optimized for superior reliability in business critical applications such as communications, edge and industrial high performance computing. It is specifically designed to meet high density I/O connectivity and wide operation temperature. The power and cooling options along with the streamlined mechanical design make it ideal for demanding applications requiring in a -20C to 70C environment. The SKY-8211 meets a variety of acquisition, preprocessing and forwarding performance needs and can operate in environments with limited space, higher ambient temperature and lower low noise level constraints.Architected around the new Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable Family, the single-socket SKY-8211 combines an unprecedented choice of performance levels from 6 to 28-cores with the ruggedness, reliability, and long system lifecycles required by the industry. With integrated security and compression offload based on Intel® QuickAssist technology, the system offers best-in-class integration in a compact form factor.The SKY-8211 is designed to withstand extended environmental conditions in terms of shock, vibration and operating temperature. Redundant power supplies, the ability to withstand single fan failures, and redundant firmware images with failsafe upgrades make the SKY-8101 for reliable. The front hot swappable FRUs and I/O ports makes the SKY-8211 the platform of choice for fast and simple service. For more details please contact your Advantech local sales representative.
