GIGABYTE server is launching three new density-focused servers in the market with their H231-H60, H261-H60, and H261-H61 machines. The new SKUs are comprised of two 2U 4-node (2U4N) systems and one 2U 2-node offering. Each node is able to support dual Intel Xeon Scalable processors, so each U works with two or four Xeon Scalable CPUs. GIGABYTE says the three additions emulate the previous architecture and performance released last year but offer lower cost and additional flexibility by removing the 10GB/s BASE-T LAN which was standard previously. This change allows the clients to customize the network solution for their needs. The H261-H60 and H261-H61 are both 2U4N rear-access form factor devices with each node able to support 2 x LP and 1 x OCP slots...
