Aquila

Features & Benefits

The Aquila series server board features the same revolutionary, patent-pending MAX I/O(TM) technology as the Aries motherboard, allowing for maximum flexibility of I/O usage, never before available in the industry, and is also footprint compatible with Aries.

Aquila

Product Overview

The Aquila series motherboard features the revolutionary MAX I/O™ technology, allowing for maximum flexibility of I/O usage, never before available in the industry.The Aquila features benefits of the Lynnfield (Xeon® 3400 series) processor with available Gen 2 PCI Express and more memory support.

Built upon the MAX I/O™ technology, the Aquila series allows users to maximize the input/output (I/O) usage by utilizing the PCI Express directly at the source and eliminating the need for expensive switches. Users can cost-effectively manage PCI Express with the available bandwidth by choosing one of many riser cards for their IO expansion requirement. Max I/O™ supports any brand of PCI-based HBAs and that puts the decision of how to use PCI Express in the hands of the user, not in the hands of the board supplier.

The Aquila motherboards also deliver an accommodating footprint design that allows two full-height and one low-profile off-the-shelf expansion cards in 1U rack space. The unique RTX form factor utilizes full internal chassis height for optimum I/O configurations.
