Servers Now Featuring 4th Generation Intel Xeon Scalable Processors

nextcomputingCompany News, Intel

NextComputing servers powered by 4th generation Intel® Xeon® processors deliver the groundbreaking technology, performance, and scalability to handle the ever growing workloads where traditional servers fall behind.

We offer single and dual socket server configurations in portable and rackmount form factors. These Intel Xeon-based systems are ideal to handle the most intensive applications anywhere you need to be via easily transportable rackmount systems or deployable Fly Away Kits (FAKs) based on edge computing servers / sensors.

For Workflows at the Network Edge

NextComputing servers featuring Intel processors offer high capacity memory and coprocessing I-O at the edge of a network, rather than in a centralized data center; enabling real-time processing of data and reduced latency, as data does not need to be transmitted to a centralized location for processing.

Some key edge computing use cases for our Intel Xeon-based servers include:

  • AI — With accelerated vector instructions and matrix multiply operations, 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors provide exceptional AI inference and training performance. Intel Advanced Matrix Extensions can provide a substantial performance increase for Deep Learning workloads, such as recommendation systems, NLP, image recognition, media processing and delivery, and media analytics.
  • Data Analytics — Built-in accelerators enhance performance for in-memory databases, big data, data warehousing, business intelligence (BI), enterprise resource planning (ERP), and operational analytics. Intel Driver & Support Assistant improves the streaming data movement and transformation operations common in data processing–intensive applications, while Intel IAA offloads tasks from CPU cores to accelerate throughput for database operations.

New Features
The Intel Xeon 4th generation processors support DDR5 memory and PCIe 5.0, which can provide benefits for several use cases. 

  • DDR5 memory can provide benefits for a wide range of use cases that require high memory bandwidth and low power consumption, such as high-performance computing, AI and machine learning, media and entertainment, storage and database management.
  • PCIe 5.0 is the latest version of the PCI Express interface, which provides faster data transfer speeds and increased bandwidth compared to earlier versions. The support for PCIe 5.0 in the 4th generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors allows for faster data transfer speeds to devices such as NVMe SSDs, high-speed networking cards, and graphics cards. This can improve the performance of workloads that are sensitive to I/O performance such as AI and HPC workloads, storage and database management.

Both 3rd and 4th generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors for workstations provide several benefits, including: 

  • Increased Performance – The processors feature a high core count and high clock speeds, which allow for faster processing of data and improved performance in demanding workloads such as 3D rendering, video editing, and scientific simulations.
  • Advanced Memory Support – The processors support DDR4 (3rd gen) and DDR5 (4th gen) memory and support for up to 1.5 TB of memory per processor, providing more memory capacity for larger data sets and more demanding applications.
  • Improved Security – The processors feature built-in security features such as Intel Hardware Shield and Intel Threat Detection Technology, which help to protect against malware and other security threats.
  • Enhanced Power Efficiency – The processors feature advanced power management technologies, which help to reduce power consumption and improve energy efficiency, making them well suited for use in power-sensitive environments.
  • Expanded I/O Capabilities – The processors support multiple high-speed I/O interfaces, including PCI Express 4.0 (3rd gen) and PCI Express 5.0 (4th gen), which provide faster data transfer speeds and improved connectivity options for workstations.

Fly-Away Kits

A Fly-Away Kit (FAK) or Expeditionary Kit is a self-contained suite of equipment (hardware and software) for DoD and federal civilian Cyber Protection Teams (CPTs) and forward operations to operate both in tactical (field-deployed) and back-office environments. The FAK suite of cyber tools or cloud/server applications include tools to conduct vulnerability analysis, incident response, and other cyber-analytic functions, and are suitable for operation on both classified and unclassified networks.

NextComputing Fly-Away Kits can support a wide variety of user-supplied software modules, including Government Off-the-Shelf (GOTS), Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS), and free and open-source software (FOSS).
