Powerful performance with Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor and ECC memory
Z11PA-D8 is built on the Intel® Xeon® Scalable Platform to deliver higher per-core performance and four memory channels that provide 50% more memory bandwidth and capacity for 1.65X faster average system-level performance compared to previous-generation processors. The Intel® Xeon® Scalable platform also delivers better virtualization performance, enabling 4.2X more virtual machines (VMs) per system.
Increased performance or data redundancy with dual M.2 SSDs in RAID mode
Dual M.2 SATA SSDs enable top performance or data redundancy in RAID mode
In performance-maximizing RAID 0 configurations with dual M.2 SSDs, write speeds are up to 40% faster than a single M.2 SSD drive setup and read operations are an astonishing 84% faster. Or, for total reassurance, pair your M.2 devices into a RAID 1 configuration for instant data redundancy. Z11PA-D8 comes with an optional Virtual RAID on CPU (VROC) enabling connector to support NVMe SSDs with Intel® Volume Management Device technology. The NVMe SSDs are directly connected to the CPU, enabling latency reduction and increased bandwidth, while reducing power consumption by 15W compared to traditional hardware RAID cards.
High-speed storage interface support with dual OCuLink for NVMe
Dual OCuLink for efficient connections to NVMe devices
Z11PA-D8 features dual onboard OCuLink to provide efficient port-to-port connection with most OCuLink-supported NVMe devices, eliminating the need for PCIe transaction cards.
