Super Micro Computer, Inc. has announced two new additions to its Double-Sided Storage family. The SC417 supports 88 hot-swap 2.5-in. enterprise-class hard drives in a 4U JBOD configuration. The SC837 supports 28 hot-swap 3.5-in. enterprise drives in a 3U JBOD configuration.
“By optimizing these systems with Supermicro SAS controllers, validated memory and hard disks that have passed our stringent validation process, customers will benefit from an extremely reliable, high-quality storage solution,” says Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro. “Since first introducing our innovative Double-Sided Storage solution in 2009, the demand for this product line has ramped up very successfully. To address this strong demand for our high-capacity solutions, we’re continuing to develop new designs and expand this product family.”
These latest Supermicro storage solutions double the drive density while reducing system power consumption, according to the company. The high-performance SC417 Double-Sided Storage solution currently supports over 52TB of hot-swap 2.5-in. enterprise SAS or SATA storage in 4U, while the new SC837 supports up to 56TB of 3.5-in. hot-swap storage in 3U and the SC847 supports up to 90TB in 4U.
Supermicro storage solutions incorporate LSI 6Gb/s SAS silicon and MegaRAID technology, including the latest LSI 6Gb/s SAS expander and RAID-on-Chip (ROC) ICs. The E16 version single Edge-expander chassis can cascade up to 240 physical devices, while the E26 models with dual Edge-expanders support redundant data path failover protection for mission-critical applications.
