There is an opinion that in the server all BIOS settings that relate to RAM should be left in the "Auto" value, install modules in pairs, of the same manufacturer and the same size, buy only one manufacturer and even one series. We received two Transcend DDR4-2400 ECC RDIMMs for testing, and today we will test ancient myths and see what memory actually affects when it comes to two types of virtual machines: VDI (virtual desktop) and SQL.

For keeping the 'cold' data, where, first of all, the volume in terabytes per one unit of the server rack is important, there are compact 1U enclosures that can accommodate 12 3.5-inch hard drives. Integrators and assemblers can use ready-made server kits for these needs, or assemble storage systems on their own in special cases, such as the Chenbro RM14500. It is for such purposes that ASRock Rack, the server division of the familiar ASRock company, releases the EPC612D4U-2T8R motherboard for Intel Xeon LGA2011 v3 processors.
