Taipei, Taiwan, August 31, 2021 — Chenbro (TWSE: 8210), designer and manufacturer of own-brand rackmount systems, today announced the availability of its latest 1U & 2U rackmount barebones servers, based on the Intel Xeon Scalable Ice Lake Series Processor, designed to increase responsiveness and improve user experiences for customers and partners. The RB151 & RB251 barebone series is intended to be the primary workhorse server for mainstreaming needs, including computing, collaboration, storage, database, web server, eCommerce, analytics, and more.

Pre-integrated with T-Shaped 16.85” x 18.79” Spread Core motherboard form factor and Intel M50CYP2SBSTD (Coyote Pass) server board embedded with the 3rd Gen Ice Lake Xeon Scalable Processors, up to 205W, dual-socket P4 LGA4189, Chenbro RB151 & RB251 rackmount barebones solutions offer a powerful combination of performance, security, and flexibility for high-performance computing applications in enterprises and data centers. The barebone systems extend capacity, up to 12TB memory, 32 DIMMs (16 DIMMs per processor), to increase memory bandwidth and speed. Compatibility with the fastest DDR4 standards adds to the improvements in both data transfer rates and maximized DRAM capacity support per CPU. The RB151 & RB251 barebones leverage the Whitley platform to deliver performance and support for enterprise and cloud requirements.

Chenbro RB151 and RB251 solutions are designed to avail of Intel’s latest server processors for significant computing performance. Combined with flexible ethernet with support for OCP 3.0 module per server, and support for the new PCIe Gen 4 standard, the synergy between increased data transfer rates and performance allows the barebone server systems to fully utilize the effectiveness of the Whitley platform and meet application, deployment, and performance goals as scalability needs grow and evolve.

Equipped with high-efficiency 1+1 redundant CRPS, 1600W (80+ Platinum) power supplies, and 8 x 40 mm high speed, low vibration, hot-swap cooling fans, the RB151 series is designed to guarantee high conversion efficiency regardless of load. RB151 hyper-converged 1U dual node systems, combining increased storage capacities and improved computing performance, support for up to 3-slot PCIe 4.0 (low profile and half length), and offer high performance SAS/SATA/NVMe Gen 4 storage, up to 12 x 2.5” or 4 x 3.5” HDD in a 1U chassis.

Designed with 1+1 redundant CRPS, 2000W (80+ Platinum) power supplies, and 6 x 60 mm middle hot-swap system fans, RB251 hyper-converged 1U dual node systems support for up to 8-slot PCIe 4.0 (6 x full height and 2 x half height) and offer high performance SAS/SATA/NVMe Gen 4 storage, up to 24 x 2.5” or 12 x 3.5” HDD in a 2U chassis.
