Intel® Server M20NTP Family

Featuring 3rd gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors.



Setting a New Standard for Essential Servers

A Cost-Effective Solution for a Wide Range of Data Center Needs

The Intel® Server M20NTP Family is a cost-effective platform delivering advanced security, enterprise-grade manageability, next-gen performance, and other essential features you need for your moderate enterprise, cloud, and SMB demands. It is the ideal essential companion to Intel’s broader range of servers, and a great choice for basic enterprise and cloud deployments, as well as edge and small business needs.

Available in both space-conserving 1U and flexible 2U configurations (coming soon), and featuring support for 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable Silver or Gold processors, these servers are capable of handling a wide range of demands and needs. In addition, performance is improved by more and faster memory channels (8 channels per processor at up to 2,933 MT/s compared to 6 channels per processor at 2,667 MT/s in previous generation products).1

When You Want More from an Essential Server

Workload needs vary greatly. Choosing the best server for each workload is important to ensure you have the right balance of performance and TCO. Entry servers play essential roles for enterprise data centers, cloud providers, edge compute, and small and medium business needs.

The Intel® Server M20NTP Family is a cost-effective platform that delivers the performance and security advantages of 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors across moderate workload demands, such as lighter VM hosting, infrastructure monitoring, and provisioning.

The Intel® Server M20NTP Family is validated by Intel and comes with Intel’s differentiated, world-class service and support2 to simplify deployment and operations. It’s a smart and flexible scale-out choice to meet growing performance needs.

The Intel® Server M20NTP Family delivers features you might not expect in an essential server. Here are just a few of the platform-wide innovations that deliver differentiating performance, scalability, security, and reliability to drive a competitive advantage for your business.

  • Boost your compute performance: 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors deliver outstanding per-core performance across a wide variety of tasks and workloads. Up to 52 cores per server in 1U and 2U form factors provide outstanding compute headroom. Plus, you get more memory bandwidth, as well as faster I/O throughput, thanks to PCIe 4.0 support.
  • Increased memory bandwidth and speed: Up to 1 TB of system memory capacity per server, 8 memory channels per processor, and up to 2,933 MT/s memory speed in 1U and 2U configurations.
  • Breakthrough storage performance with affordable capacity: Intel® Optane™ SSDs deliver breakthrough performance for your high-speed storage tier. Support for four SSDs in 1U systems and up to 16 SSDs in 2U systems provides high-density practicality for your capacity tier. And you get storage flexibility, thanks to support for NVMe, SAS, and SATA drives.
  • High-speed networking: Accelerate network throughput by integrating a 100 Gb Ethernet add-in card.
  • Flexibility and versatility:
    • Speed I/O with PCIe 4.0, with up to 48 lanes (per socket) at 16 GT/s vs. previous generation3
    • One DB15 video connector
    • Four USB 3.0 ports (2 in back + 2 in front)
  • Hardware-enhanced security: Adding even more value, hardware-enhanced security innovation with Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX) and new hardware-level cryptographic algorithm implementations better protect sensitive apps, data, and firmware, to help keep data safe without the typical performance penalty.
