We are studying in detail the first commercially available ARM64 server: how does it work, how it is managed, what software is it compatible with, and why is it worth switching to Chinese processors at all, abandoning the 30-year-old architecture?

The uniqueness of the Socket 1151 processor socket for Coffee Lake-S processors allows, in all seriousness, to assemble on the same platform both 2-core terminals on Pentium Gold and 8-core universal machines on Xeon-ah , on which you can work with graphics and do software development.

Practically, when you need a solution for a host running a security gateway, a 1C server and a Kubernetes node, you can even give up ECC memory in favor of Core i5, Core i3 and even Pentium Gold. In general, where a high frequency is needed in single-threaded loads, it is often not enough unless a normal motherboard

Among the company's products, there are also server-type motherboards, which are also intended mainly for highly specialized areas of use, when products from other manufacturers do not pass according to their parameters. In this article we will tell you, using the example of several Advantech motherboards, how they differ from models from other manufacturers.
