"Further development of Server-on-Module technology is essential for embedded edge computing. Continuous RAM expansion is required to be able to offer the best possible server performance and capacity on an extremely compact footprint of only 125 x 95 mm. We are therefore very pleased to be the first Server-on-Module provider to offer such high storage capacity off the shelf. This performance leap underlines our passion for advancing the new Server-on-Modules standards, which incidentally has also made us the technology and market leader in this area," explains Martin Danzer, Director of Product Management at congatec.
High memory capacity is essential for server applications, because the fastest way to read and write values from a database is to fully load them into memory. The larger the databases, the more memory capacity is needed. There are many database applications in the field of embedded edge computing, such as network appliances for content delivery in video surveillance applications, IoT gateways or OPC UA servers in automation. A large RAM is also a good intermediate buffer for Big Data analytics on the fly so that only smaller results need to be stored. Servers that host many virtual machines also benefit immensely from the doubled memory capacity: With 96 GB RAM, 12 virtual machines now have 8 GB RAM available on each partition – an ideal value for standard Linux or Windows installations.
