AIC Inc. announced a product family of dual socket storage servers.
Powered by 3rd Gen. Xeon Scalable processors, these rackmount storage servers are high-performance and designed with high flexibility to support various storage devices. This product family provides options ranging from cost-efficiency servers to performance all-flash NVMe platforms and can fulfill a range of data storage applications from storage tiering, virtualization to cloud datacenters and HPC.
This product family includes 3 models, SB101-A6, SB202-A6 and SB201-A6. These dual socket server systems are with company’s server board (codename:A6) that is based on 3rd Gen. Xeon Scalable processors. By leveraging 3rd Gen. Xeon Scalable processors’ features, including CPU TDP supports up to 270W, DDR4 memory, PCIe Gen4 ready, built-in AI and security, these server systems provide performance and low latency while maintaining the cost-effective benefits. Customers can utilize the enhanced Intel CPU performances, memory capabilities and doubled PCIe Gen4 I/O bandwidth to tackle the challenges in storage workloads. Besides, these server systems are designed with universal (tri-mode) backplanes and are able to support SAS (*), SATA, and NVMe, providing flexibility for customers to load either 3.5” or 2.5” HDDs/SSDs. With tool-less features, these systems can save operators amount of maintenance resources, which is crucial for hyper-scaler and cloud environments.
