The C4200 Rack Server Chassis can hold up to four rack server nodes in two rack units (2RU) with shared N+1 redundant power and cooling, and house up to 24 small form factor drives, with the UCS C125 M5 Rack Server Node supporting up to two EPYC 7000-series processors, each with with up to 32 cores per chip, up to 2 TB of RAM, twin PCIe 3.0 slots, along with space for an optional 4th-generation Cisco UCS virtual interface card.
The C4200 is focused on offering a modular platform optimized for compute density, and deliver the following key advantages:
Up to 128 percent higher processor core density compared to existing two-socket UCS M5 rack servers
50 percent more servers and 20 percent more storage per rack
33 percent more memory bandwidth compared to existing UCS M5 rack servers
No new fabric and management silos for high-density computing vs. general purpose computing
Systems management from the cloud, with Intersight
As the weeks pass, AMD's EPYC platform seems to be gaining more and more momentum. In December of 2017 Baidu, the Chinese internet search provider and leader in artificial intelligence, announced the availability of AMD EPYC-powered AI, big data, and cloud computing (ABC) services.
