OnLogic has announced a collaboration that will provide customers with immediate access to a new line of industrial servers powered by the newest generation of AMD Ryzen and AMD EPYC processors. OnLogic’s new AMD-powered server lineup combines the company's years of experience designing reliable edge computing hardware with the performance, versatility and capabilities offered by AMD technologies.

These new servers are designed to offer the configurability, connectivity and capabilities for use in AI, deep learning, data analytics and advanced automation. By using AMD processors, OnLogic can further empower customers to meet their increasingly complex, data management needs.

"Data is the key to so many of the innovative solutions being built today," said Maxx Garrison, Product Management Lead for OnLogic's server line. "Our servers are designed to be flexible and configurable since each of these projects is so unique. Now, with these new AMD-powered servers, users can take advantage of the features provided by AMD EPYC and AMD Ryzen processors. We're already seeing customers prototyping some incredible things using these solutions and can't wait to see what others will create."

OnLogic's AMD-powered server lineup features a range of rackmount systems designed to be integrated into traditional server infrastructure; as well as a desk or wall-mounted unit intended for users who need server performance from a standalone device. All of the systems leverage next gen PCIe 4 for fast data transfer, as well as integrated Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) technology for remote data management.

“We're excited that OnLogic has created this new line of AMD-powered servers," said Amey Deosthali, Director, Product Management, AMD. "There will always be a need for high performance computing in traditional data centres, which is a specialty for AMD, but we're seeing servers being implemented in a range of edge computing applications, and that's where OnLogic's expertise comes into play. These EPYC- and Ryzen-powered devices will give innovators computing capabilities at the edge they simply didn't have before."

AMD EPYC CPU Servers

Powered by the 2 nd Gen AMD EPYC processor family, the MK200-60 and MK400-60 servers are 2U and 4U systems respectively, offering up to 64 cores and 128 PCIe lanes per processor, including native support for PCIe 4 and dual 10Gbe ethernet.

Other key specifications include:

  • 8 Channels DDR4, 8 x DIMM slots
  • Internal or hot-swap SATA, SAS and NVMe storage options
  • 7 PCIe 4 x16 slots for next-gen expansion capabilities

AMD Ryzen Desktop Processor Powered Servers

In contrast to the majority of other AMD powered servers on the market, the other systems in OnLogic's AMD server line leverage AMD Ryzen 3000 Series desktop processors. The MK100B-40 and MK150B-40 are 1U and 1.5U systems respectively, while the MC850-40 utilises OnLogic's MC850 industrial enclosure, creating a standalone server system that can be placed on a desk or wall mounted.

Other key specifications include:

  • Up to 4x DDR4 ECC and non-ECC SO DIMM, total DIMM size 128GB in a dual-channel 2 DPC configuration
  • Up to 8 x SATA3 or 2 x PCIe 4 x 4 by OCulink and 1x M.2 ports
  • Integrated IPMI 2.0 with KVM and dedicated LAN
  • 1x PCIe 4 x 16 link + PCIe 4 x4 link from the AMD Ryzen desktop processors
  • 2x 10 Gb LAN Intel X550-AT2

OnLogic will be hosting a live online event to highlight key benefits of the OnLogic servers and collaboration with AMD on 6th October, 2020 at 11:30 AM (EDT). Please visit OnLogic's website to register.
