With a total of 32 "ruler" form factor SSDs in a 1U system, Supermicro's new NVMe solution will provide all NVMe capacity at petabyte scale in 1U of rack space as the company plans to support 32TB Rulers in the near future.
Compared to current U.2 SSD 2U storage systems, the new "ruler" form factor for Intel SSDs delivers more than double the capacity per rack unit and is 40% more thermal efficient.
At FMS 2017, Supermicro announced its role as a key technology partner to Intel as the company rolls out its "ruler" form factor technology. NVMe technology was developed to unleash the best possible latency and provide faster CPU to data storage performance for advanced computing.
The new "ruler" form factor optimizes rack efficiency, delivers unparalleled space-efficient capacity, and simplifies serviceability.
"With more than double the capacity and 40% more thermal efficiency, this Supermicro 'ruler' system will take us to Petabyte scale in a single 1U system in the near future," said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro.
"The 'ruler' form factor for Intel SSD is designed from the ground up with today's data centers' needs in mind, and brings dense storage and efficient management on a massive scale to the data center, breaking free from the legacy of hard drives and add-in cards," said Bill Leszinske VP, Strategic Planning and Business Development at Intel's NVM Solutions Group.
"Supermicro provides industry support for RAM and NVMe density on the BigTwin model that we are deploying for the new Intel Xeon Scalable processors. These systems allow us to support up to 6 NVMe drives per node for a total of 24 NVMe drives in 2U," said William Bell VP of Products at PhoenixNAP.
