  • CC12-DX1:
    Industry-standard, 1U, dual-socket compute server with 2 full-height expansion slots for any compute applications. Features dual Intel® Xeon® Scalable (up to 28 cores at 3.8 GHz), 24 x DIMM, up to 1.5 TB of DDR4 2666 MHz Reg. ECC memory, 4 hot-swappable 3.5 in. drive bays, and dual redundant power supplies.
  • CC22-DX1:
    Multipurpose, 2U, dual-socket compute/storage server for CEPH integration and computing node. Features dual Intel Xeon, Scalable (up to 28 cores at 3.8 GHz), 24 x DIMM, up to 1.5 TB of DDR4 2666 MHz Reg. ECC memory, 12 or 24 hot-swappable drive bays (3.5 in. or 2.5 in.), and dual redundant power supplies.
  • CC22-DX4:
    Dense, 2U, 4 compute server nodes. Features dual Intel Xeon Scalable (up to 28 cores at 3.8 GHz), 16 x DIMM, up to 1 TB of DDR4 2666 MHz Reg. ECC memory, 4 hot-swappable 3.5 in. drive bays, and dual redundant power supplies.
