Eight-socket storage rich

These configurations support up to eight processors, 24 drives and 17 rear PCIe slots.

The eight-socket storage rich configurations support six or eight processors with the following requirements/capabilities:

  • Only 8100 series processors are supported.
  • Fan 1 to 6 are required to be installed.
  • The upper compute tray is installed in the upper tray slot.
  • Up to 24 drives are supported.

See the following for the support variations depending on number of processors that are installed:

Eight-socket storage rich, six processors

This configuration comes with six processors, requires at least four 1100-watt or two 1600-watt PSUs, and supports up to:

  • 72 memory modules.
  • 13 rear PCIe slots.

See the following tables for the location of the supported components.
