QuantaGrid Q71L-4U

Powerful Enterprise Grade 4U 4-socket Server with Unprecedented RAS and Scalability

Large enterprises and service providers supporting mission-critical applications and big data analytics in real time require servers with massive memory and performance to capitalize on trends as they emerge. They also want the higher densitis, energy savings and serviceability enjoyed by hyperscale cloud datacenters.

To fill this emerging and growing market, QuantaGrid Q71L-4U. The 4U, four-way server uses the Intel® Xeon® processor E7-4800/ 8800 v3  product family with up to 18 cores per processor, totaling 60 cores and 120 threads per system. The server offers a combination of reliability, high I/O throughput, expandability, efficiency and serviceability that until now were difficult to achieve in the enterprise datacenter.

Unsurpassed System Performance

QuantaGrid Q71L-4U is powered by Intel® Xeon® E7-4800/ 8800 v3 based processors using state-of-the-art 22nm manufacturing technology, with up to 18 cores per processor (or a total of 72 cores per system).


Equipped with Intel® Run Sure Technology, the most advanced RAS features for the Intel® Xeon® E7 family. QuantaGrid Q71L-4U reduces planned and unplanned downtime to protect data integrity, which is vital to mission-critical services and enhances data center efficiency.

Significant I/O Throughput and Scalability

96 DDR4 DIMM slots designed to achieve platform limitation by capitalizing the Intel Scalable Memory Buffer's capability to its maximum. In addition to the ten PCIe 3.0 slots with their astonishing expandability, the four hot-swap PCIe slots among them further enhance expandability with serviceability. The 11th slot is dedicated for QCT storage mezzanine to offer cost-efficient SAS/RAID support option. Twelve 2.5" 12Gb/s-ready hot-plug hard disk drives ( two supporting NVMe-ready PCIe SSDs) deliver ultra-low latency cache, best for data demanding and transaction-intensive workloads, such as in-memory or business analytics.


QuantaGrid Q71L-4U is designed with serviceability in mind throughout the whole development process. Its powerful serviceability features include:

  • Front access to twelve hot-plug hard disk drives

  • Four hot-swap PCIe slots

  • Easy-to-maintain hot-swap fans

  • LED indicator on each fan module

  • Rear access to hot-swap power supply modules

  • Bi-color LED indicator on each power supply module

  • System power and system status LEDs

  • System ID buttons and LEDs on front and rear system panels

  • Color-coded parts to identify serviceable components

Best for

  • Business-critical applications (ERP/ CRM, etc.)

  • Enterprise back-end or in-memory databases

  • Server virtualization/consolidation

  • Financial service

  • SAP
