Get the Best Storage Solution for Your Needs from Thinkmate

Confronting the nonstop growth of data and the rising demand for greater storage capacity and performance, organizations must decide on what capabilities are most important for their specific workloads as they procure and incorporate new storage systems into existing infrastructures. With our broad portfolio of custom storage solutions, wide selection of configuration options, and support for the latest technologies, we are confident that we can offer you the best storage solution for your purpose—be that boosting capacity affordably, enhancing reliability, or improving IOPS.

Boost Storage Capacity with an Economical JBOD Storage Solution

For organizations looking to expand storage capacity in the least disruptive, most cost-effective way possible, we recommend a JBOD storage solution. JBOD storage solutions, which are usable for JBOD or RAID expansion purposes, allow you to boost storage capacity and capacity utilization (or redundancy for high-availability applications) without having to replace or upgrade existing servers.

Available in 2U, 3U, or 4U rack mount form factors incorporating redundant high-efficiency power supplies, our JBOD expansion units are easy to set up and flexible, letting you configure each storage solution with the number, type, and particular mix of local drives you need. Choose from a variety of hot-swappable drive types including 2.5-inch SAS-3 (12 Gb/s) 10k and 15k RPM hard drives and SAS 12 Gb/s solid state drives.

Improve Storage Performance, Reliability, and Capacity with a Nearline Storage Solution

For organizations that need to increase storage capacity for business-critical applications and improve the performance of primary, or top-tier, storage systems, we suggest our STX-NL nearline storage server product line. A nearline storage solution can be connected directly to your existing DAS, NAS server, or SAN storage solutions and used for less frequently accessed data. Providing superior performance and reliability, our capacity-optimized nearline storage servers offer enterprises a robust solution for high-availability deployments. Our STX-NL storage solutions support:

  • Haswell-based Intel® Xeon® E5-1600/2600 v3 CPUs and other processing platforms
  • Up to 1.5 TB of 2133 Mhz DDR4 registered ECC memory in 24 DIMMs
  • Up to 72 2.5-inch SAS/SATA hot-swap drives in a 4U
  • High-performance PCI-Express storage devices including Fusion-io® io-Drive2 SSD cards
  • Onboard dual Gigabit Ethernet or dual or quad 10-Gigabit Ethernet connectivity
