Supermicro Unveils New Generation Top-Loading Storage Systems for High-Capacity Cloud-Scale Deployments
This new top-loading architecture delivers the improved flexibility, modularity, and serviceability that customers need. Both 60-bay and 90-bay systems are available in single-node and dual-node configurations, where the drives evenly split between each node. Also, the drives can be in a storage bridge bay (SBB) configuration for high availability, in which both nodes have access to all the drives, and one node backs up the other in case of a failure. With a modular, tool-less design, all key onboard systems – hot-swap server nodes, expanders, fan modules, power supplies, and drives – are fully optimized for easy serviceability by a single technician.
"Anticipating changing market dynamics and high growth in software-defined, cloud-based storage, Supermicro can help data centers to rapidly modernize their equipment to leverage flexible architectures, tool-less design modularity, and simple expansion capabilities," said
Supermicro's new high-capacity top-loading systems are optimized for enterprise environments, and support scale-up and scale-out architectures. These 4U systems feature 60x or 90x hot-swap 2.5"/3.5" SAS3/SATA3 bays plus 2x onboard PCI-E M.2 slots and 2x internal slim SATA SSD slots. The single-node system also supports 2x rear hot-swap 2.5" bays for OS mirroring and optional 4x NVMe U.2 bays for fast caching. At maximum configuration, the system supports 1,440 terabytes of cost-optimized storage. The single- and dual-node systems use 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors in a dual-socket configuration with 16x DIMM slots per server node.
