Server storage has evolved over the years to meet market demands. As new paradigms in data storage technology are adopted in the market, storage servers are advanced with these technologies. Supermicro is at the forefront of new storage technology with its SuperStorage line of storage servers that offer maximum capacity and performance while using minimal space. Utilizing Double-Sided Storage® architecture, drives can be stacked in the front and rear of each server chassis for maximum storage density.
Supermicro SuperStorage servers are available from Thinkmate in 1U, 2U, 3U, and 4U rack footprints. All servers come with redundant high efficiency power supplies. The smallest Supermicro 1U SuperStorage configuration which is also the most cost effective is available with a low power Intel® Atom™ CPU, up to twelve 2.5” and 3.5” SAS/SATA (6Gb/s and 12Gb/s) drives, and up to 64GB of memory.
For 2U size SuperStorage servers, specifications can include up to two Intel® Xeon® CPUs, up to twenty-four 2.5” or twelve 3.5” SAS/SATA (6Gb/s and 12Gb/s) hot-swappable drives, and up to 1.5TB of memory. For higher density, one 2U configuration includes two server nodes in a 2U chassis. Each server node runs two Intel® Xeon® CPUs, supports up to twelve 2.5” SAS/SATA (6Gb/s and 12Gb/s) hot-swappable drives, and up to 192GB of memory per node.
SuperStorage 3U servers provide more room for additional hardware components. 3U configurations support up to four Intel® Xeon® CPUs, up to sixteen 2.5” and 3.5” SAS/SATA (6Gb/s and 12Gb/s) hot-swappable drives, and up to 1.5TB of memory. A 3U configuration is also available that includes two server nodes in one 3U chassis. Each node runs two Intel® Xeon® CPUs, up to 192GB of memory per node, and up to a total of sixteen 2.5” and 3.5” SAS/SATA (6Gb/s and 12Gb/s) hot-swappable drives for the entire 3U chassis.
The largest SuperStorage server footprint is the 4U size. Configurations for 4U storage servers include up to two Intel® Xeon® CPUs, up to seventy-two 2.5” and 3.5” SAS/SATA (6Gb/s and 12Gb/s) hot-swappable drives, and up to 1TB of memory.
All configurations can be equipped with the most cost-effective to the fastest network interconnects, from 1Gb ethernet to 56-Gigabit FDR InfiniBand and Fibre Channel.
Scaling existing Supermicro data storage server deployments is easy with SuperStorage's scale-out architecture. Processor performance, storage capacity, and network bandwidth scale easily together by simply adding server nodes yielding predictable performance up to petabyte levels.
