Broachlink NoahV2 motherboard replacing the APU2 / 3?
« on: June 12, 2020, 02:27:01 am »
Today, we are pleased to announce the availability of a new powerful and flexible motherboard for network and telecom solutions.

As a solution provider for resellers, integrators and telecom operators, Rack Matrix Technology has always listened to its customers. Indeed, it turns out that the PC Engines APU3 card, which is suitable for most applications, suffers from minor shortcomings in some cases, reported by our customers:

    The AMD processor (4 cores 1GHz) on board APU2 / 3 cards proves to be limited for pfSense / OPNsense routers with third-party applications requiring power.
    Some customers wish to set up operation backup with Proxmox (open source hypervisor) machines with APU cards. It works well but the 4GB of memory is not enough and 8GB would be ideal.
    Other clients may need a video port for thin client applications.
    Finally, some customers wish to have a router capable of handling many VPN tunnels as well as a processor capable of holding a load of up to 1Gbps.

It is with a view to overcoming these limitations that the Noah V2 motherboard was designed.

Here are some key points regarding the improvements made by this new generation of Noah V2 motherboard:
