Gigabyte Technology isn’t the first name that comes to mind in data-center hardware. It’s better known as a consumer player, but it is a significant server player none the less, making server motherboards on par with other top names like Supermicro.
Now the company has teamed with CoolIT Systems to provide two high-density servers equipped with liquid-cooling technology.
The servers, H262-ZL0 and H262-ZL2, are equipped with direct liquid cooling for CPUs designed to support the high-performing but super-hot 280 watt AMD EPYC 7003 (Milan) processors.
The servers, based on the company's H262-Z6x family of air-cooled servers, are hyperconverged and very dense, targeting HPC, HCI, in-memory-computing, and scientific-research markets. They both pack four nodes with two sockets each and eight DIMM slots per node in a 2U form factor.
