Lanner’s NCA-5310, a 1U rackmount network appliance that delivers highly parallel workloads, PCIe 4.0 I/O performance, 40Gbps encryption/decryption security acceleration, now comes with support for AMD’s 3rd Generation EPYC processor family, codenamed Milan.
According to AMD, “‘Third-gen EPYC is the highest-performance server processor in the industry, at the socket level and at the per-core level when you look at every core-count boundary.” The Milan CPUs, developed using AMD’s latest Zen 3 cores, offer up to 128 lanes of PCIe 4.0 and eight channels of memory.
Similar to its predecessor, the Milan processor is also designed with 8 chiplets of eight cores each; the difference is now that all eight cores in the chiplet are connected, providing an effective double L3 cache design for a lower overall cache latency structure. All Milan processors should be drop-in compatible with Rome series platforms with a BIOS update while retaining all of Milan’s new capabilities.
Also according to AMD, “3rd Gen EPYC is the most ideal solution for cloud, HPC and enterprise, where it drives significant TCO value while providing state-of-the-art security and data protection.”
This support for Milan processors again brings to the forefront the NCA-5310‘s outstanding features, which include up to 512GB DDR4 3200MHz ECC REG DIMM, dual RJ45 ports (GbE & Console), 2x 2.5" HDD/SSD bays and 1x PCIe x8 FHHL, up to four NIC modules that support 1/10/40/100G copper/fiber interface and Lanner’s F.A.S.T. module solutions.
