"Anticipating changing market dynamics and high growth in software-defined, cloud-based storage, Supermicro can help data centres to rapidly modernise their equipment to leverage flexible architectures, tool-less design modularity, and simple expansion capabilities," said Charles Liang, president and CEO of Supermicro. "Our new high-capacity storage systems continue Supermicro's focus on resource-saving and deliver industry-leading capacity per watt for a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and lower total cost to the environment (TCE)."
Supermicro's new high-capacity top-loading systems are optimised for enterprise environments, and support scale-up and scale-out architectures. These 4U systems feature 60x or 90x hot-swap 2.5"/3.5" SAS3/SATA3 bays plus 2x onboard PCI-E M.2 slots and 2x internal slim SATA SSD slots. The single-node system also supports 2x rear hot-swap 2.5" bays for OS mirroring and optional 4x NVMe U.2 bays for fast caching. At maximum configuration, the system supports 1,440 terabytes of cost-optimised storage. The single- and dual-node systems use 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors in a dual-socket configuration with 16x DIMM slots per server node.
