As per the company, MicroBlade is a revolutionary, converged server architecture that helps data centers around the world save money, space, and time. Reportedly, it is a truly open and flexible architecture that fits in the industry standard 19" rack form factor that combines the density, ease of use, manageability, high availability, serviceability, efficiency of blade servers with the cost advantage of rack-mount servers. Increased node density and maximized energy efficiency and cooling are enabled by VLP DDR4 16/32GB RDIMM. MicroBlade architecture, supports Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3, E3-1200 v3, Xeon D-1500, and Atom C2000 series processors. The 6U MicroBlade Portfolio includes:
• MBI-6128R-T2/-T2X – performance oriented solution with highest density up to 196 Intel Xeon DP nodes (5488) cores) per 42U rack with 95% cable reduction – supports dual Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 v3 (up to 14 cores) up to 28x DP servers with 1GbE and 10GbE options.
• MBI-6218G-T41X, MBI-6118G-T41X – high density, low power solution featuring 56 Intel Xeon Processor D-1500 (Broadwell-DE) based servers in 6U (up to 392 computing nodes per 42U rack) with 10GbE.
• MBI-6118D-T2/-T2H/-T4/-T4H – high-density, single-socket server solution supporting Intel Xeon E3-1200 v3 (up to 84W TDP) and upcoming new processors. Up to 196 Denlow UP nodes per 42U rack and 99% cable reduction.
• MBI-6418A-T7H/-T5H – ultra low power & cost-effective solution using 8-Core Intel Atom Processor C2000, with up to 112 nodes in 6U (up to 784 computing nodes per 42U rack) enclosure.
