For application platforms, density means getting a high ratio of CPU and RAM per RU. The WARP Mechanics AP-3214 series of application platforms deliver world-class performance and energy efficiency in a package optimized for CPU and RAM density, while also including a full range of PCIe add-on cards, an optional internal switched SAS architecture, and support for 2.5” NVMe high-throughput drives. These highly dense platforms are the basis for several WARP Mechanics turnkey storage server appliances.
Each AP-3214 is a full-featured application-processing platform featuring high memory capacity, networking, storage, and flexible I/O options to provide an exceptional server for business IT, appliance, data center, cloud and high performance computing applications. All components are sourced through authorized suppliers to show traceability of supply chain with the Intel® Transparent Supply Chain for accountability of manufacturing.
An AP-3214 unit may contain up to 36 processor cores, 1.5TB of RAM, and either twelve 3.5” or twenty-four 2.5” hot-swap drive bays on the front of the appliance. Some models provide an embedded 12Gbps SAS expander, rear-mounted 2.5″ SATA bays, and up to 4x NVMe SSD drives.
In addition to the onboard 1Gb/10GbE ports, it supports a wide range of high-speed I/O interfaces. Multiple I/O modules are available with 1/10/40GbE, FDR/EDR InfiniBand, and OmniPath for networks, and up to 24x x4 12Gbps SAS connections to connect any WARP Mechanics storage platforms such as the ultra-dense WDS-9460 JBODs, which can scale to over six petabytes (6PB) per rack.
