Product Description
The PRIMERGY BX620 S4 succeeding the BX620 S3 server blade provides all of it's predecessor's future oriented technologies and even more: Latest Dual- and Quad-Core processors from Intel® (up to 3 GHz), memory (FBD, extended mirroring), storage (modular storage controller configuration) and 2.5 inch SAS or SATA hard disk drives. Very impressive performance and flexibility enhancements are granted through six on-board Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, operating within a PRIMERGY BX600 S3 blade server chassis in combination with two Gigabit Ethernet switch blades offering 2x 30 downlinks plus 2x 12 uplinks for optimum LAN connectivity. Due to its backward compatibility, the PRIMERGY BX620 S4 may be installed in the BX600 S2 chassis as well. Based on those capabilities the PRIMERGY BX620 S4 enables customers to run larger and more (with virtualization based on VMware or Xen) applications compared to all other existing PRIMERGY BX600 Dual Server Blades. With its new modular design for different requirements, the customer can create specific configurations in combination with SAS or SATA hard disks to meet different usage scenarios. For example a customer can create a low cost platform with SATA hard disk and the SATA storage module or featured platform with SAS hard disks and a SAS storage module, which can take up a PCI Express card in addition. For high demands regarding security a SAS storage module with RAID1 and Cache/iTBBU is offered. All those configurations can be established very easy in the factory or in the field, because the different storage modules come with an intelligent mounting cage for the server blade front.
