SAN JOSE, Calif., July 27, 2021 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

- Comprehensive Family of 60-bay and 90-bay 4U Storage Models Supporting 
Single-Node, Dual-Node, Storage Bridge Bay, or JBOD Configurations in a Highly 
Serviceable Architecture

Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMCI), a global leader in enterprise 
computing, storage, networking solutions, and green computing technology, 
announced new versions of its market-proven top-loading storage solutions with 
60-bay and 90-bay systems along with new Simply Double storage systems fully 
optimized for the latest 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors and PCI-E 4.0 
NVMe drives. These best-in-class high-capacity storage and expansion systems 
are ideal for cloud-scale storage implementations as well as HPC storage

"As the growth in software-defined, cloud-based storage continues to 
accelerate, Supermicro helps data centers to rapidly modernize their 
infrastructure to leverage flexible configuration, tool-less modular designs 
that can be serviced by a technician, and simple expansion capabilities with 
our new X12 60-bay or 90-bay single, dual node and high availability 
architecture innovation," said Charles Liang, president, and CEO, Supermicro. 
"Our new high-capacity storage systems continue Supermicro's focus on resource 
saving and delivers industry-leading capacity for a lower total cost of 
ownership (TCO)." 

Top-Loading Storage Systems

Supermicro's new top-loading architecture delivers improved flexibility, 
modularity, and serviceability that customers require. Both 60-bay and 90-bay 
systems are available in single-node, dual-node, and dual-node high 
availability (HA) configurations. The dual-node HA and single-node 
configurations control access to all drives in the systems. The dual-node 
configuration evenly split the drive control access between each node. With a 
modular, tool-less design, all critical onboard systems – hot-swap server 
nodes, expanders, fan modules, power supplies, and drives – are fully optimized 
for easy serviceability by one technician.

Supermicro's new high-capacity top-loading systems are optimized for enterprise 
and cloud-scale storage environments. This scale-up and scale-out architectures 
design offers customers the configuration options of PCI-E 4.0-based RAID or IT 
mode SAS controller. These 4U systems feature 60 or 90 hot-swap 2.5" or 3.5" 
SAS3/SATA3 bays plus two onboard PCI-E M.2 slots and two internal slim SATA SSD 
slots. The single-node system also supports two rear hot-swap 2.5" bays for OS 
mirroring and four optional NVMe U.2 bays for fast caching. The system supports 
1.6 petabytes of cost-optimized storage at the maximum configuration, plus up 
to 60TB of SSD flash via the rear-accessed NVMe. The single- and dual-node 
systems use 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors in a dual-socket 
configuration with 16 DIMM slots per server node.

Simply Double Storage Systems

Supermicro's Simply Double storage server is an industry-leading solution for 
content delivery. Today's announcement introduces performance and 
serviceability enhancements to the overall design to support 3rd Gen Intel Xeon 
Scalable processors in a dual-socket configuration with 16 DIMMs while 
maintaining the same dense storage footprint. Up to four rear hot-swap U.2 NVMe 
bays are supported, allowing users to add flash without sacrificing any of the 
24 SAS/SATA 3.5" storage bays. Innovative chassis design enhances airflow and 
streamlines system service accessibility to components such as the motherboard, 
CPU, memory, PCI-E slots, internal drive bays, and rear drive bays. Along with 
these mechanical improvements, the system can be configured with the options 
of  PCI-E 4.0-based RAID or IT mode SAS controller.

Supermicro Storage Summit

Supermicro is launching these new systems in conjunction with its Open Storage 
Summit 2021, highlighting software-defined storage technology innovations. The 
Open Storage Summit 2021 will take place from July 27 - 29, 2021. Please click
