As an alternative performance server option based on 7nm AMD EPYC™ 7002 series processors (Rome), Golduck targets HPC (high performance computing), storage and general-purpose usage with 32 DIMM capacity (up to 4TB with 128GB DIMMs) and offers the expandability up to 2 standard PCIe x16 cards and one OCP 3.0 card. Designed with a simple 1U enclosure, Golduck is optimized for large density and scalability with tool-less storage drives and hot-swappable fan modules. Perfect to various applications including virtualization solutions and big data analysis scenarios requiring better flexibility, higher performance and greater storage capability.
Boosted Performance and Computing Density
The dual AMD EPYC™ 7002 series processors provide up to 128 cores and 16 memory channels for a single computing node. With the industry-leading core count and the ground-up innovations, Golduck not only offers ideal linear scalability and demanding virtualization capacity workload, but also boosts the performance of memory-intensive applications.
Extending Server Capabilities without extra PCIe Switch
Requiring no additional PCIe switches to get the PCIe lanes, Golduck allows up to 2 standard PCIe cards and 1 OCP Mezz card through the CPUs, realizing high speed I/O connectivity.
With dual AMD EPYC™ 7002 series processors supporting total 162 available PCIe lanes, Golduck directly supports up to 12x 2.5” U.2 NVMe/SATA SSDs, enabling streamlined software-defined and direct-attached storage solutions. Multiple storage options are available, including the on-board M.2 storages, to offer greater flexibility and capacities.
SoC Level Security
With industry’s first embedded x86 silicon-level data security, Golduck minimizes potential attack surfaces and protects software and data with AMD Secure Root-of-Trust, AMD Secure Run, and AMD Secure Move Technologies.
Flexible Network Configuration
With AMD EPYC™ SoC design that bridges the gaps between existing and future datacenter requirements, Golduck can meet the emerging needs of modern software-defined datacenters, offering a hyper-converged infrastructure with high scalability and flexibility, which is perfectly applicable for database management and analytics, private/hybrid cloud environments, and virtualized infrastructure.
