Super Micro Computer Inc. brings to market a new, compact storage solution with its SSG-5018A-A(R/S)12L SuperStorage Server. This storage server is designed to minimize power consumption and reduce cooling requirements by spinning down or powering off idle drives and managing data streams through Supermicro’s Intel Atom C2750 based serverboard for cold storage. For more data intensive applications, configurations are available with the Intel Xeon E3-1200 v3 and E5-1600/2600 v2 processors. The complete solution is ready to deploy in a 1U 32-inch chassis supporting up to 48TB/72TB of 3.5-inch HDD storage. Flexible networking options are available with 2x 1GbE ports or 10GBase-T, SFP+ ports. In addition, the system is powered by redundant 400W/600W high efficiency power supplies.

“Supermicro’s new 1U storage server is exactly the best solution for today’s tiered storage architectures that need rapid access to data with minimum power consumption and heat dissipation,” says Charles Liang, president and CEO of Supermicro. “Our new system is designed to save energy while providing maximum accessibility to infrequently accessed data. With our compact Atom C2000 serverboard and Xeon UP configurations, we have achieved the perfect balance between performance, capacity, and power savings for a wide range of applications while maintaining a highly scalable, cost-effective storage solution.”
