Features & Benefits


Product Overview:
The Apollo server board is an Intel® Broadwell-DE SoC based platform which is built on 14nm process and is a 64-bit processor based on Intel® Broadwell Core supports VT-d/x, TXT, AES-NI and Xeon RAS, better for low power, high-density design. 
By implementing Intel® Xeon-D SoC, with ADR protect DIMM Data in event of power failure, supports NTB failover, Intel® Quick Data to faster Direct Memory Access, 10G SFP+ driving by Inphi/Cortina CS4227 PHY, and also integrated within Broadcom/LSI SAS IO controller (SAS3008) and SAS expander chip (LSISAS3x28/3x36), Apollo server board is optimum for high-availability server storage application without extra cable link for better system integration.

Features:
•    Supports Intel® Xeon® processor D-1500 product family to meet low-power, high-density needs
•    Embedded components for 5+ years life cycle
•    Comes with Intel® integrated Magnolia Park in SoC + Inphi/Cortina CS4227 PHY support dual ports 10G SFP+
•    Integrated with SAS 12G IO Controller (SAS3008) + Expander chip better for HA Server Storage application
•    Onboard Baseboard Management Controller for system management and IPMI control
•    Rackmount Technology Extension (RTX) form factor utilizes full internal chassis volume for optimum I/O configurations
