Axiomtek - a world-renowned leader relentlessly devoted in the research, development and manufacture of series of innovative and reliable industrial computer products of high efficiency – is proud to introduce the NA870, its new 2U rackmount network appliance platform with a maximum of sixty-six LAN ports. The NA870 is powered by the dual LGA4189 sockets 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon scalable processors (code name: Ice Lake-SP) with the Intel® C621A or C627A chipset. It can manage numerous connected computers through the integration of up to eight expandable NIC modules. The Intel® Ice lake processors with Intel® Crypto Acceleration technology ensure that the NA870 delivers a perfect mixture of performance, flexibility, and security for cloud-scale computing, AI, 5G networks, HPC workloads, and multi-access edge computing (MEC) applications.
The dual-processor-based NA870 comes with eight to forty powerful cores and a wide range of frequency, features, and power levels to support diverse network environments, optimizing many workload types and performance levels. It features two Gigabit Ethernet ports and eight expandable NIC modules with 1 GbE/10 GbE/Fiber/Copper/Bypass support for a maximum of sixty-six LAN ports. Moreover, the NA870 is equipped with twenty DDR4-3200 R-DIMM slots with a memory capacity of up to 1280GB. The server-grade network appliance platform also has two hot-swappable 2.5-inch SATA HDD trays at the front of the system and two M.2 Key M 2242/2280 supporting PCIe and SATA signal for storage expansions. Two PCIe x16 expansion slots are available for an add-in riser card.
“The NA870 is Axiomtek’s first PCIe gen 4.0 ready platform. Benefiting from the 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon scalable processors, the dual-processor-based 2U rackmount network provides the foundation for a powerful data center platform that creates a tremendous leap in agility, scalability and security,” said Alan Hsu, the director of IIoT Product PM Division at Axiomtek. “The NA870 with built-in AI and crypto acceleration functions as well as advanced security capabilities is aimed at markets that require accelerating performance, higher security, HPC, machine and deep learning workloads. Take the 5G use case as an example. The network-optimized NA870 supports Open RAN platforms which constitute a significant step towards the realization of the 5G era.”
To serve the needs of diverse applications, the NA870 has rich I/O interfaces including one RJ-type console port, two USB 3.0 ports, two RJ-45 GbE LAN ports with Intel® Ethernet Controller i210 and one VGA port. The innovative Intel® Xeon®-based network security platform features Intelligent Platform Management Interface 2.0 (IPMI 2.0) to allow users to remotely manage and monitor servers. It also supports Trusted Platform Module 2.0 to provide data encryption for hardware-based data protection. Most importantly, its built-in Intel® Crypto Acceleration increases the performance of encryption-intensive workloads to enable greater efficiency and protection across server, storage, and network infrastructure.
Axiomtek’s NA870 will be ready for purchase in July 2021. For more product information or customization services, please visit our global website at www.axiomtek.com or contact one of our sales representatives at firstname.lastname@example.org.
