SBI-7128R-C6N blade module is a compact self-contained server that connects into a pre-cabled enclosure that provides power, cooling, management and networking functions. One enclosure for the SBI-7128R-C6/C6N blade module can hold ten blade units. The SBI-7128R-C6N blade module supports dual 2011-pin (LGA 2011 Socket R3) Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 series processors.
The SBI-7128R-C6N blade module can have six 2.5" Hot-swap HDD/SSD/NVMe SATA (Serial ATA)/SSD hard disk drives in front-mounted easy removable carriers. Only the SBI-7128R-C6N blade module can support NVMe drives. The NVM Express ports available in the SBI-7128R-C6N blade module provide high-speed, low-latency connections directly from the CPU to NVMe Solid State drives (SSDs). This greatly increases SSD throughput and significantly reduces storage device latency by simplifying driver and software requirements resulting from the direct PCI-E interface between the CPU and the NVMe SSD drives.
A maximum of ten blade modules may be installed into a single blade enclosure. Each blade enclosure is a 7U form factor, so a standard 42U rack may accommodate up to six 10-blade enclosures with 60 blade modules, or the equivalent of 60 1U servers. With the inclusion of six CMM modules, twelve Gigabit Ethernet switches and six InfiniBand switches, this would occupy up to 84U space in a conventional 1U server configuration.
