Server computer solutions for enterprise computing have to meet the mission-critical requirements of enterprise applications. Performance, reliability, and availability problems with enterprise server hardware translate to lost revenue and business for organizations. A prime component in any enterprise solution is the storage server. The integrity of application data is directly dependent on the storage servers that are used to manage and store this data. Consequently, hardware used for enterprise server storage must be performant enough to handle the heavy workloads imposed by enterprise applications.
Thinkmate supplies a range of robust enterprise servers configured optimally for storage of enterprise application data. This is Thinkmate’s STX-EN range of servers. Each STX-EN enterprise server is configured for the highly transactional nature of applications such as big data analytics, Online Transaction Processing (OLTP), and large databases. STX-EN servers are available in 2U, 3U, and 4U chassis that fit into an industry-standard server rack. All STX-EN servers come with dual Intel® Xeon® CPUs.
STX-EN 2U server configurations can hold up to twenty-four 2.5” hot-swappable SAS 6Gb/s and 12Gb/s drives in addition to a maximum of six PCIe SSD add-on cards (including NVMe 3.0). The 3U server configurations can support up to sixteen 3.5” hot-swappable SAS 6Gb/s and 12Gb/s drives plus a maximum of six PCIe SSD add-on cards (including NVMe 3.0). The 4U server configurations contain up to seventy-two 2.5” hot-swappable SAS 6Gb/s and 12Gb/s drives as well as up to four PCIe SSD add-on cards (including NVMe 3.0). Hard drives supported have speeds of 7,200 RPM, 10,000 RPM, and 15,000 RPM.
Each STX-EN enterprise server comes with high efficiency redundant power supplies. Options for fast network interconnects for each server include 56-Gigabit FDR InfiniBand and Fibre Channel.
Thinkmate’s website allows you to configure, customize, and purchase STX-EN servers easily. Chassis size, motherboard type, CPU type, boot drives, storage drives, drive controller cards, memory, network interconnect cards, PCIe storage devices, operating systems, battery backup units, and power backup protection can all be selected through the Thinkmate online configurator.
