Arima SW500
Dual Opteron mainboard
SW500 server board using the powerful abilities of the dual core AMD Opteron 800 Series Processor in a 4-way configuration and provide Infiniband solution. Expected market segments would be those of clustering, network data processing and other markets that need the capability of 64-bit computations.

SW500 is designed around
ServerWorks HT-2000 and HT-1000 chipsets that provide seamless integration with AMD Opteron processors with 2000MT/s HyperTransport that outputs at faster rate than ever before. SW500 supports up to 64 GB DDR400 registered memory with ECC support that achieves a fine balance of spacing saving and memory power.

SW500 offers dual 10 Gb/s InfiniBand ports with
PCI express interface by Mellanox for high performance computer interconnection. It operates without external memory to achieve an optimal balance of cost/performance trade-offs. SW500 integrated 4 ports SATA2 with RAID 0, 1, 10 and also provides Ultra 320 SCSI for users to keep using their existing SCSI Hard drive for cost-sensitive situations.

On the other hand, SW500 integrated 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports to provide teaming with load balancing and fail over, making it the ideal motherboard for any system that operates in a highly dynamic and highly available computing environment. It also provides an independent Gigabit Ethernet controller for server management daughter card.
