Simplifying IT: 2CRSi's Mona Servers with XCP-ng Onboard

News Mar 22, 2024

I'm excited to share some great news with you today. As CloudFest just finished, we've got a significant update to share that marks a step forward in simplifying server management and setup.

In partnership with 2CRSi, known for their efficient and powerful computing solutions, we, at Vates, are introducing an important advancement in server technology: the Mona series, powered by AMD, bundled with XCP-ng out-of-the-box!

These servers stand out because they come with our Vates stack pre-installed, offering a ready-to-use solution right from the start. In other words, this means you can order these machines, boot them up, and instantly dive into the XCP-ng experience without any further setup.

Our partnership with 2CRSi is not just a meeting of minds but a fusion of visions. Together, we're bringing to life our shared goal of offering turnkey solutions that are not only powerful but also incredibly user-friendly.

Hardware specifications

Mona machines are packing a lot of punch. For example, only one Mona 1.44 GG can bring:

  • 2x SP5 sockets with AMD EPYC™ 4th generation: from 16/32 core/threads up to 96/192, meaning up to 384 threads in total!
  • 24x DIMMs slots available up to 256GiB capability per slot, for a whopping potential 6TiB of RAM!
  • Entirely Gen5 PCIe: 1x PCIe FHHL x16, 2x PCIe HHHL x16, 2x OCP 3.0 x16
  • 4x 3.5’’ (SAS/SATA) and 4x 2.5’’ (SATA/SAS/NVMe)

A turnkey experience

This development marks a significant milestone for Vates as it represents our first OEM server vendor partnership to offer XCP-ng pre-loaded on their machines. It's a big step towards realizing our vision of providing a turnkey solution for our users. Imagine the convenience - getting a solution off the shelf, powering it on, and that's it! You're all set with a powerful, reliable server running XCP-ng literally out-of-the-box.

Deeper integration to streamline your IT operations

But we didn't stop at just pre-installing XCP-ng. The Mona series servers will come with a level of integration deeper than anything we've offered before. This means that specific hardware information and extra capabilities will be seamlessly accessible right inside Xen Orchestra. What does this mean for you? A 100% working experience out of the box, coupled with the ease of managing your entire stack, from the hardware layer right up to the top, through a user-friendly interface.

The future is here

This collaboration with 2CRSi is a testament to our commitment to making server management and deployment as straightforward and efficient as possible. It represents a great leap towards our goal of delivering a turnkey solution that doesn’t just work, but excels. As we unveil this exciting development at CloudFest, we're not just introducing a product; we're opening up new possibilities for businesses, developers, and tech enthusiasts to leverage the full potential of their computing resources with unparalleled ease.

Stay tuned for more updates, and get ready to experience the future of server technology with Vates and 2CRSi!
