The volume of business data is expanding more quickly than ever, causing data center architects to seek new solutions to handle this massive influx of information. When attempting to deploy the largest storage server solutions, data center managers must balance the additional capacity requirements with the need to deliver superior performance and to maintain flexibility while holding the line on costs.
Thinkmate provides a wide range of large storage server options that maximize capacity while providing solutions for a variety of data center strategies.
Thinkmate offers a broad range of customized servers, workstations, and storage options for businesses, educational institutions and government agencies. As a premier white box server solutions provider for nearly 20 years, we deliver cutting-edge technology with a commitment to superior customer service that enables our customers to affordably source solutions that are 100% customized for their needs.
Our selection of custom storage servers provides truly flexible and fully customizable unified data storage solutions. Every one of our machines can be built to order using our world-class configurator, which offers more customizable options than any other system builder on the web. Starting with a base model that offers the form factor and platform you need, you can add or substitute processors, memory, hard drives, SSD drives, network cards, software and other components to configure a machine that meets your exact requirements.
Our JBOD Storage Expansion units are some of the largest storage server options available from Thinkmate. These units provide a dependable, high-capacity option that is perfect for increasing storage capacity on an existing system,or for consolidating archives and backups from a central storage server. When you're looking for the largest storage server solution, using JBODs for storage expansion is often the most affordable method for building storage capacity.
We offer a range of JBOD options, from 12 or 24 bay server solutions to a model that supports 106 x 16TB SAS drives, one of the largest storage server options in our product line.
JBOD has become an increasingly popular solution for storage expansion as data assets continue to grow and become more complex. Some applications such as the Hadoop framework specify JBOD storage as preferable to other disk configurations. Because of its high storage server density and relatively low cost, JBOD solutions are also being used in nearline storage and SAN storage deployments.
Thinkmate provides additional technology that can deliver the largest storage server solutions.
Thinkmate also offers VMware Virtual SAN solutions and options for a tower server or a blade storage server, along with a wide range of servers and systems, including workstations with Supermicro Thunderbolt technology.
Thinkmate offers significant advantages over machines acquired from the largest storage server integrators.
While there are many individual products that may compete for the title of largest storage server, the technology is constantly changing and the demands for large-scale storage is constantly increasing. IT architects looking for the largest storage server often choose technology such as network-attached storage, RAID or JBOD expansion solutions, which provide cost-effective scale-out options.
A network-attached storage (NAS) server is a storage device with a file-level storage architecture that enables multiple users and clients to save and retrieve files from a central location. NAS systems make it easy to add additional capacity by simply connecting additional servers.
JBOD stands for "just a bunch of disks" and is a storage solution that uses multiple types of storage drives, but without a RAID configuration. JBOD architecture makes it possible to take a group of disparate drives of different sizes and models and to configure them as a single logical volume or as a group of individual drives.
