Features And Benefits

The Ara series server board offers compelling performance and improved power efficiency, which is optimized for performance platforms (storage, security and communications infrastructure).
By implementing the next-generation 22nm/14nm Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v3/v4 series, fully integrated microarchitecture with AIC-patented MAX I/ O™ technology, the Ara server board provides for maximum flexibility of I/O usage, never before available in the industry.

The Ara features benefits of the Haswell processor and Next Generation architecture with available Gen 3 PCI Express and more memory support. Built upon the MAX I/O™ technology, the Ara 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 unique RTX form factor utilizes full internal chassis height for optimum I/O configurations.
