2U COTS 12 hot swap NVMe High-Performance NVMe Flash Server

2U COTS 12 hot swap NVMe High-Performance NVMe Flash Server
Part number: NVMe-SAN2N-12LP
2U COTS 12 hot swap NVMe High-Performance NVMe Flash Server

Key Features:

  • Designed to support standard Grantley/Broadwell, Purley/Skylake and AMD Naples platforms
  • Purpose-built for NVMeoF usage model with optimized IO bandwidth and latency
  • Perfectly balanced IO design:
  • Each CPU manages one PEX9781 or PEX9797 PCIe switch
  • Each PCIe switch manages 48x lanes downstream for 12* U.2 or 6* PCIe X8 AIC modules plus one
  • Maximum throughput with each CPU capable of sustaining over 200Gbps and 4M IOPs
  • RDMA/RoCE/iWARP NIC adapters are linked to NVMe SSDs via PCIe switch
  • System is designed to minimize crossing over the QPI/UPI links to avoid additional interrupts
  • Unmatched IO bandwidth with in a compact 2U platform
  • Over 500Gbps sustained IO performance for the entire system
  • Modular design and future-proof, can migrate to new generation platforms with minimum efforts
  • Maximized exhaust vents plus high-pressure cooling fans result in high-efficiency cooling
  • Support both 2.5” U.2 NVMe devices and low-profile size PCIe X8 NVMe add-in-cards for flexibility
  • Designed for OEMs with many options for customizations
