Cirrascale RM3494 Series Microserver Overview

The Cirrascale RM3494 Rackmount Series is a high-density microserver with up to 12 server nodes in a compact 3U chassis (RM3494L contains 9 nodes). The RM3494(L) is built upon the Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v3 product family, taking full advantage of Intel's latest 22nm technology to deliver dramatic efficiency in power, cooling, space, and cost savings as well as intelligent and dependable performance. It has four times the computing density of three traditional one-socket 1U servers stacked together.

The RM3494(L) is a platform optimized for dedicated hosting, cloud computing, big data workloads, content delivery networks, and front-end servers for hosting web pages, stored content and the like. The server is configured with the network across all server nodes aggregating into two 10GbE SFP+ ports for uplink through an internal switch. This reduces CAPEX by eliminating extra Top-of-Rack switches and network cables as well as providing a more simplified cable management. In addition, all nodes can be managed through one single management port on the chassis, making remote management much easier for data center operators.

By sharing power supplies and cooling modules across all of the server nodes, the RM3494(L) enhances overall energy efficiency and reduces operating expenses. Additionally, all of the nodes and power supplies are cold aisle accessible allowing the ability to avoid maintenance in the hot aisle. All of the RM3494(L) nodes, power supplies and fans are hot-pluggable providing increased serviceability.

Delivering the technologies needed to replace an inefficient and aging installed-base, Cirrascale's RM3494(L) series gives customers breakthrough performance, higher density, easier serviceability and increased energy savings.

With the consistent advances in technology, Cirrascale engineering and development teams are constantly testing and deploying the latest technical specifications being offered by our technology partners. We make every effort to provide the below specifications error-free and up-to-date. However, we always encourage our customers to contact us to discuss Cirrascale's latest improvements to its products. This product's specifications are as follows:
