2U/8-Bay VMware ESXi 6.7 / Fault Tolerance Ready

Stirling 287 – VMware ESXi 6.7 / Fault Tolerance Ready

vSphere Fault Tolerance (FT) provides continuous availability for applications in the event of server failures,  by creating a live shadow instance of a virtual machine that is in virtual lockstep with the primary instance. By allowing instantaneous failover between the two instances in the event of hardware failure, FT eliminates even the smallest chance of data loss or disruption. Maximize uptime in your datacenter and reduce downtime management costs by enabling vSphere Fault Tolerance (FT) for your virtual machines. FT provides zero downtime, zero data loss, and continuous availability for your applications, without the cost and complexity of traditional hardware or software clustering solutions.

Increased Security with Trusted Execution Technology (TXT)

The Stirling 287 features a new Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and has been VMware ESXi 6.5 U2 certified to support Trusted Execution Technology (TXT) . TPM employs cryptographic techniques to provide measurements of software and platform components so that system software as well as local and remote management applications may use those measurements to make trust decisions. This technology is based on an industry initiative by the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) to promote safer computing. It defends against software-based attacks aimed at stealing sensitive information by corrupting system and/or BIOS code, or modifying the platform’s configuration.

E5-2600 v4 Xeon processor and DDR4-2400 memory support

More execution resources for higher overall performance. With up to 22 cores per socket, up to 55 MB of last-level cache (LLC), and support for up to 12 percent faster DDR4 memory versus previous-generation memory, the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 product family increases performance across a broad range of workloads, from business and technical computing applications to communications and storage solutions. These processors come in a wide variety of configurations, so core counts, frequencies, and power levels can be tailored for individual workloads to deliver optimal performance.

  • Up to 22 cores and 44 threads per socket
  • Up to 55 MB of last-level cache (LLC) for fast access to frequently used data
  • 9.6GT/s QPI processors support DDR4 2400MHz memory

Intelligent Platform Management Interface

For hardware-level platform monitoring and control functions, the IPMI protocol utilizes an out-of-band network to provide a flawless and secure path for mission-critical applications when regular in-band connectivity is lost or is unresponsive. Remote access for monitoring and administration allows the server administrators to view a server’s hardware status remotely, receive an alarm automatically if a failure occurs, and power cycle a system that is non-responsive.

Total System Intel Virtualization Technology Support

Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT-x) offers investment protection and infrastructure flexibility with multigeneration VM migration across the full range of 32-bit and 64-bit configurations, enabling bigger VM pools.
Intel Virtualization Technology for Connectivity (Intel VT-c) provides hardware-assisted I/O that accelerates network performance and simplifies VM migration. Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (Intel VT-d) helps speed data movement and eliminates much of the performance overhead by giving designated VMs their own dedicated I/O devices, reducing the overhead of the VM migration in managing I/O traffic.

Virtual Machine Device Queues

Boosts network I/O to meet the demands of consolidated virtual workloads. Multiple Virtual Machines (VMs) introduce heavy traffic-management demands that servers must meet in order to ensure scalability and get the full value of virtualization. VMDq optimizes the processing of VM data traffic by routing them to the correct virtual machines at the chipset level and offloading the hypervisor to improve CPU utilization and bandwidth.

Intel I/O Acceleration Technology

Today’s multi-port GbE and 10GbE network adapters deliver enormous data flows that require advanced server I/O subsystems to avoid performance bottlenecks. Intel I/OAT improves data flow across the platform to enhance system performance while reducing system overhead.
