The Advantech SKY-8201 is a highly configurable high performance server designed to balance the best in x86 server-class processing with maximum I/O and offload density in a 20″
depth chassis. The system is a cost effective, robust platform optimized for superior reliability in business critical applications including, but not limited to, communications, edge and
industrial high performance computing. It is specifically designed for high density PCIe card payloads where maximum IO connectivity is needed or the integration of industry leading
offload and acceleration technology is essential. The power and cooling options along with the streamlined mechanical design make it ideal for demanding applications requiring
high performance acceleration technologies such as DSP and FPGA cards.
Architected around the new Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable Family, the Dual-Socket SKY-8201 combines cutting-edge performance with the ruggedness, reliability, and long system
lifecycles required by the industry. With integrated security and compression offload based on Intel® QuickAssist technology and two onboard 10GbE ports with SR-IOV and RDMA
support, the system offers best-in-class integration in a compact 2U, 20″ deep form factor.
The SKY-8201 is designed to withstand extended environmental conditions in terms of shock, vibration and operating temperature. A replaceable front air filter is supported to cope
with dust. Redundant power supplies, the ability to withstand single fan failures, redundant firmware images with failsafe upgrades and hot swappable FRUs make the SKY-8201
the platform of choice for applications requiring zero downtime. The SKY-8201 is designed for NEBS Level 3 carrier grade environments and where limited rack space is available.
Interoperability testing is performed with a wide selection of third-party PCIe card vendors.
