Even more important, they let businesses maintain data sovereignty, run high performance analytics, big data and low-latency applications, support edge and disconnected applications, and deploy applications to either Azure public or private cloud. An amazing lineage, that!

  • Higher storage capacity, supporting up to 120TB raw capacity per node

  • Higher workload performance, thanks to 66% boost in memory bandwidth and double the memory capacity, plus up to 28 cores and higher clock rates
