High-density servers designed to reduce the size of the server. It achieves a higher density than other servers through expandability, dual motherboards, and horizontal expansion. High density does not mean that they cannot be expanded. They can be flexibly expanded according to requirements.
The scale of traditional storage servers is huge, and many of them are built into a data center with millions of servers, causing huge waste of space. Some companies provide high-density servers to solve limited computer room space, sharp increase in energy consumption, and environmental protection.
Characteristics of high-density servers
The common feature:
high-density results can be achieved through design methods such as scalability, dual motherboards, and horizontal expansion.
Share power supply, fan, or use micro fan.
Virtualization technology to reduce the network card component equipment. Reducing the overall power consumption of the server.
Flexible and expandable within specific needs.
High-density servers are different from ordinary rack servers. Ordinary rack servers use independent power supplies and fans. High-density servers share power and fans in the same chassis by multiple server nodes, which greatly improves the efficiency of the power supply and cooling system. High-density server makes the whole machine lighter in weight and lower in cost.
Applications of high-density server
High-density servers are mainly used in large government or business office. There are a lot of concurrent client requirements, but the computational intensity of each requirement is not much. It is most suitable for high-density servers to function in this case.
The authoritative server professional evaluation website ServeTheHome(STH) published an in-depth evaluation report about Inspur server model i24 (2U4N). The results show that the i24 comprehensive score is 9.2 points, 9.4 points for design, 9.0 points for performance, 9.2 points for functions, and 9.0 points for value. STH believes that Inspur i24 has extremely competitive advantage in the 2U4-node market. It is a good choice for mainstream multi-node servers. This product has obvious advantages in institutional design and power consumption.
High density and customization are not the only advantages of high density servers. The superior performance of this type of product is reflected in the ultra-low power consumption and heat dissipation design. The common technical approach adopted by this type of server is sharing fans and power supplies to reduce power consumption and achieve ultra-low power consumption.
