WS-E2280 Enterprise Simulation & Analysis Workstation

Quick Links: ReviewsSpecifications

If you require a powerful multi core workstation, using the very latest in cutting edge enterprise grade components for your highly intensive computational workflows then look no further than the WS-E2280. This solution offers nothing but the best that todays hardware technology can offer with Intel’s latest Dual Xeon Scalable Family processors, up to 2TB of DDR4 ECC system memory, up to 3x Dual width Graphics Cards and the latest NVMe based storage options. The WS-E2280 is a dream solution for those wishing to perform complex data analytics and simulations in record times.

SKU WS-E2280 Category Tag


Powerful Dual Xeon workstation ideally suited to demanding CPU and Memory intensive workflows such as simulation, analysis, Scientific, CFD & FEA. With a foundation of the latest Intel Xeon Scalable Family processors, the WS-E2280 can be configured with up to 56 Cores and 112 Threads and has room for additional 3x PCIe cards for GPU acceleration should your software package support it. Combining this with up to 2,048GB DDR4 ECC Registered memory makes the WS-E2280 the perfect solution for complex data manipulation and compute.

DUAL Intel® Xeon Scalable Family Processors

The latest generation of Intel Xeons are a major leap forward in processor technology. Not only offering high performance with more Cores and Threads than any previous generation, these processors have now taken a lot of peripheral technologies and built them directly into the silicon. Network and storage now talk directly to the processor reducing latency and increasing the performance you see.

Intel® have also introduced new features such as Advanced Vector Extension 512 also known as Intel® AVX-512. This features optimises workflows such as data compression, data analytics, simulations and High performance computing applications in general.

Intel have also improved security by developing hardware-enhanced data protection directly onto the processor itself. Therefore by simply using a system based around the Intel® Xeon Scalable family processors your performance levels will be higher than ever and your data will be safer than ever before.

Chassis (Rackmount Options) – IPMI

WS-E2280 is built by our expert in-house engineers into our custom designed enterprise grade chassis. This robust and flexible designed case is a full steel and aluminium design with high airflow that operates extremely quietly. Giving you incredible hard drive and expansive card flexibility we are confident we can meet your needs.

The in-house designed Workstation Specialist Chassis also is available with a rackmount kit enabling you to mount your system directly into any standard rack. This combined with the WS-E2280 IMPI 2.0 on board remote management capabilities or a Teradici addin card makes this an ideal remote workstation.


Memory is no problem with this workstation with up to 2,048GB of LRDIMM DDR4 ECC Registered memory the WS-E2280 has the capacity you need for any memory intensive task. This high performance 6-Channel memory features corrective error handling technology ensuring your computations are 100% accurate.

Professional Graphical Acceleration

Add up to 3x Graphics cards to turbo charge your workstation. Applications such as ANSYS are able to take advantage of NVIDIA CUDA technology to accelerate your computations, reducing strain on your CPU by utilising the GPU’s many thousands of cores to perform operations at incredible speeds. If GPU memory is an issue for you then talk to our pre-sales team to find out if you could benefit from NVIDIA’s NVLINK technology, which bridges the memory across 2 cards allowing applications to see up to 32GB of GDDR5 memory. Alternatively consider an AMD Radeon Pro WX GPU solution that offers incredible OpenCL Performance.

Samsung M.2 NVMe Drives

Accelerate your workstation with a M.2 NVMe Solid State Drive. These storage devices no longer use traditional SATA connections and instead use PCIe lanes, the same connection type graphics cards use. This allows storage device to transmit data directly to the processor at exceptional speeds of up to 3,500MB/s sequential reads and up to 2,100MB/s sequential write. This is around 20x faster than a mechanical Hard Disk Drives, optimising your operating system and applications for a more responsive experience.

Quiet Cooling Solution

Our enterprise grade workstation uses a highly efficient high static airflow cooling solution to effectively move excess heat away from vital components and expel that heat from the chassis. This is vital to maintaining system stability, performance and giving the system a long life expectancy. The cooling solution in the WS-E2280 achieves all this whilst keeping your system near silent even under heavy load.


A Warranty package an Enterprise Class workstation deserves, that is what we provide here at Workstation Specialists. We understand that workstation solutions are a long term investment and mission critical to your business and that is why all our workstations come with a 3 Years Parts and Labour Warranty with an optional 4th and 5th year labour only uplift. All this is backed up by our expert engineers with over 100 years combined experience, ensuring you are back up and running as quickly as possible should you ever have an issue.
