Thanks for your reply

Can I install Mikrotik Router OS on this server ? Or I need to use virtualization like Virtual box or proxmox ?

You can go with free ESXi 7 that covers 8 real cores https://download.mikrotik.com/routeros/ ... 6.47.7.ova
Or plain x86 https://download.mikrotik.com/routeros/ ... 6.47.7.iso
I only used CHR/ESXi on Supermicro servers.

Does ROS x86 have support for 10G SFP+ links?
I am planning to build a supermicro server (see my other thread viewtopic.php?f=3&t=168264&p=827358#p827358)
and I was wondering if the ROS x86 works out of the box and see all the hardware (network card and SFP+)

Also I will be very curios of the performance in pps....
