As server rack space in data centers and enterprises increases in cost due to increasing demand for computing resources, high density computing is a popular and viable solution for managing costs in data center solutions. High density data storage is a vital constituent of high density computing. As such, many data storage server vendors offer high density storage servers in their product range. Supermicro is a leading storage server manufacturer, and its Supermicro SuperStorage servers, available from Thinkmate, are the highest performing high density storage servers in the industry.
Benefits of Supermicro SuperStorage
Supermicro SuperStorage servers offer a wide variety of benefits over other storage servers in the market. Several of the key benefits are:
- Wide range of sizes and configurations. Supermicro SuperStorage servers are available in a large number of configurations in 1U, 2U, 3U, and 4U rack sizes at price points to meet all budgets. The smallest 1U size configuration uses an Intel® Atom™ processor and supports up to twelve 3.5” or 2.5” SAS/SATA drives. The largest 4U configuration uses dual Intel® Xeon® processors and supports up to seventy-two 3.5” or 2.5” SAS/SATA drives. Supermicro SuperStorage servers also include configurations with two server nodes in a single 2U or 3U chassis providing even greater computing density. These configurations use two Intel® Xeon® CPUs per node resulting in four CPUs per chassis.
- Maximum storage performance. Supermicro SuperStorage servers are assembled using the fastest components available. Options for hard disks include those that rotate at 15,000 RPM. Supported data transfer standards include SAS and SATA 6Gb/s and 12Gb/s for both hard disks and solid state drives. Network interconnect options include 56-Gigabit FDR InfiniBand and Fibre Channel. Supermicro SuperStorage servers with hardware RAID controllers also feature intelligent caching that uses solid state drives to accelerate hard disks. A small pool of solid state drives is used as an I/O caching layer for hard disks enabling I/O acceleration of the most active data files.
- Highly scalable architecture. Supermicro SuperStorage servers are designed to scale by adding server nodes to a storage cluster. Processor performance, storage capacity, and network bandwidth scale together by simply adding server nodes resulting in predictable performance up to petabyte scale. This makes SuperStorage servers an excellent choice for a scale-out NAS storage server solution.
