Supermicro reveals its new 2U Simply Double storage. The Simply Double SuperStorage solutions double the density and capacity in a 2U form factor by incorporating a second set of easy access, external hot-swap drive bays.
Supermicro’s new Simply Double 2U SuperStorage systems include twice the number of hot-swap drive bays as 2U industry standard systems, thus offering up to twice the storage capacity and IOPS in the same amount of space. The additional drive bays are arrayed in a patented Riser Bay that is located on the top of the Simply Double systems for easy access and servicing. With twice the storage density, customers can greatly improve the price/performance of their storage deployments to maximize ROI.
The Supermicro 2U Simply Double SuperStorage systems are available in models that offer either 2.5″ or 3.5″ drive bays, and that also support All Flash NVMe SSDs or SAS 3.0 HDDs. Additional value-added features include an additional two rear hot-swap drive bays, 3x PCI-E 3.0 slots, redundant Titanium Level (96%+) high-efficiency power supplies, and support for the latest Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3 processors. This broad and feature rich product line allows customers to select the Simply Double solution that is optimized for their specific requirements, from IOPS intensive applications to deployments that require the highest storage capacity.
Additional Superservers which were announced include: 1U/2U/4U SuperServers supporting 4-12x NVIDIA® Tesla ® GPUs/Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessors, 1U/2U Ultra SuperServers, 2U TwinPro²™, 4U FatTwin™, 4U 36/60/90 hot-swap SuperStorage systems, 3U MicroCloud, 3U/6U MicroBlade, 7U SuperBlade®, and edge-to-cloud IoT gateway, embedded servers. Solutions also include Supermicro 1U 10x NVMe with Microsoft SQL Server for OLTP workloads and 4U 90-bay JBOD Lustre on ZFS high-performance parallel file system for HPC and Big Data.
