Boston launches first to market server series featuring AMD EPYC processors

22 Jun 2017 St. Albans - Boston Limited has launched its AMD EPYC-ready servers at ISC Frankfurt 2017. It is the widest range of AMD EPYC-ready servers available today. The hotly anticipated release of AMD EPYC 7000 Series processors is set to shake up the marketplace with a totally new high-performance x86 core design, originally codenamed Zen. With a range delivering 16-32 cores and with two threads per core, enabling 32 to 64 threads per processor and 128 PCIe 3.0 lanes per socket, industry experts are paying attention to AMD once again.

Boston's AMD EPYC server series, built on Supermicro building blocks, has the fastest memory available. AMD have adopted the system on a chip (SoC) approach, meaning a separate chipset component is not required for general purpose IO, and thus saving on overall energy consumption reducing component footprint on the motherboard and ultimately a saving in cost.

Boston exhibited a server in their NDA room at the ISC'17 show - a 1U dual processor server featuring up to two AMD EPYC 7000-series processors, up to 4TB ECC registered DDR4-2666MHz system memory in 32 DIMM slots, 2x PCI-E x16 (FH/HL 9.5") slots, 1x PCI-E x8 (LP) slot, quad Gigabit Ethernet ports, 4x 3.5" hot-swap SATA3 drive bays - with optional NVMe support - and dual redundant 10000W Titanium level power supplies.

Manoj Nayee, Managing Director, Boston Limited, stated: "Once again all eyes are on Boston at ISC for our first to market solutions. We've been inviting guests to our NDA room throughout the show this year to preview just one of our many solutions featuring AMD EPYC. We've had a record number of pre-bookings for the room ahead of the show and word has spread to ensure that this has been the busiest show for us yet. For those who weren't able to visit us at ISC this year, I invite them to contact Boston for a test drive at our Boston Labs facility."
