Mercury | January 27, 2023
Technology solutions provider, Mercury Systems, Inc., which delivers processing power to critical defense and aerospace missions, launched its next generation of rugged edge servers powered by 4th generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors. The new processors earlier known as Sapphire Rapids, are designed for faster compute-intensive edge workloads and provide quick insights needed for critical defense and aerospace missions.
The all-new RES X08 servers are built using the decades of experience Mercury has with its COTS Rugged Edge Server (RES) rackmount family. RES X08 servers support powerhouse NVIDIA H100 GPUs, low-latency PCIe 5.0 fabrics, high-speed DDR5 memory, versatile Compute Express Link (CXL) expansion and 400 Gbps network cards, packed in a highly configurable, ultra-rugged chassis. Using innovative and secure design, Mercury’s servers are designed from the ground up to dissipate and withstand massive thermal loads which are created by larger, more powerful components. With a smaller footprint, Mercury’s servers are capable of delivering higher computational performance for accelerated workloads in industrial and military applications.
Brian Perry, General Manager of Mercury’s Sensor Systems business unit, said, “The RES X08 follows in the lineage of field-proven RES X07 and RES X06 servers that meet the demanding requirements of mission-critical workloads at the edge.” He further added, “Tens of thousands of Mercury rugged servers are currently deployed across U.S. and international defense programs, and Mercury is proud to make the latest commercial Silicon Valley technologies profoundly more accessible to aerospace and defense customers.”

In a recent announcement, Inspur Information’s NF8480M6 achieved a world record of 359,780 SAPS and is ranked first in SAP SD 2-tier performance benchmark for 4-socket servers using the Copper Lake platform.
The SAP Sales & Distribution (SD) 2-Tier Benchmark is widely recognized as a benchmark in a two-tier architecture based on sales and distribution modules. The SAP SD 2-Tier Benchmark Test has evolved into a crucial indicator of operational performance for the production systems of actual enterprises. Many enterprise users regard it as a more flexible and valuable guide for selecting a server platform, since it considers exact production needs of enterprise users during the architecture design itself. A higher benchmark test score indicates that the server system can accommodate more users and offer more productivity for businesses or a higher SAPS value.
The record set by Inspur NF8480M6 in SAP SD 2-Tier Benchmark for 4-Socket Servers is due to the design philosophy of openness, excellence, extremeness and security, which enables Inspur to increase usability, reliability and performance of its servers.
