GENERAL-PURPOSE SERVERS

HPE PROLIANT DL325 GEN10

WINNER: OVERALL

Joining the 10th-generation version of Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s popular ProLiant server platform this year is the ProLiant DL325 Gen10, which features major performance thanks to its use of AMD Epyc processors. Leveraging the chips means that HPE can deliver the economics of a single processor, but with more performance than competing solutions that feature two processors. That ultimately results in 25 percent better price performance with the ProLiant DL325 Gen10. The server “reduces price in two ways,” said John Kolimago, executive vice president and general manager of cloud solutions at Blue Bell, Pa.-based Anexinet. “There’s the acquisition cost of the technology itself—that’s a big benefit. But where the rubber really meets the road is with the licensing models that many ISVs have, where they pay by the processor. If you can do the same amount of work on one processor, where previously it took two, you’ve effectively halved your licensing cost with your ISV.”

Subcategory Winner—Customer Demand, Revenue and Profit: Cisco UCS C4200 

Cisco’s Unified Computing System C4200 targets compute-intensive, scale-out workloads with its high-density, multi-node server that maximizes application performance and operational efficiency. Each node contains 16 DDR4 DIMM slots for up to 2 TB of DRAM capacity.

Finalist: Dell EMC PowerEdge R940xa

Dell EMC’s four-socket PowerEdge R940xa server is purposebuilt to tackle performance bottlenecks with improved response times. The PowerEdge R940xa combines up to four CPUs with four GPUs in a 1:1 ratio, and enables low latency with directattached NVMe drives.

Finalist: Lenovo ThinkSystem SR950

Lenovo’s ThinkSystem SR950 is designed for demanding, missioncritical workloads. The 4U server can scale from two to eight Intel Xeon Scalable processors with up to 12 TB of memory in 96 slots, and the server’s modular design provides rapid upgrade and servicing.

Finalist: Supermicro SuperServer 4029GP-TRT

Supermicro’s SuperServer 4029GP-TRT supports eight Nvidia Tesla V100 32-GB GPU accelerators with maximum GPU-to-GPU bandwidth for cluster and hyper-scale applications. The 4029GP leverages Intel Xeon Scalable processors with up to 28 cores, while including 24 DIMM slots and up to 3 TB of memory capacity.
