Four Independent Intel Servers in 2U Enclosure
Billerica, MA. January 13, 2015. Winchester Systems Inc., a leading data storage solutions provider, today announced a completely new FlashServer line of products that offer high density servers and storage combined into a converged solution. This unique server configuration provides a simple way to provide multiple servers and local storage in a single enclosure. The benefits are obvious: One highly engineered, high quality, built-to-last server replaces four separate 1U or 2U servers – at lower cost.
This FlashServer high density solution cuts rack space and power by 50% to 75%. Power savings are equally impressive with up to 75% savings – or more using power profiles. These powerful Intel servers work just like any other Intel server in your Windows, Linux and VMware environments.
FlashServer 2Ux4 supports 8 & 16 Gb Fibre Channel, 6 & 12 Gb SAS, 1 GbE, 10 GbE, 40 GbE and 56 Gb Infiniband connectivity. A single unit provides four separate Intel servers each managed by GUIs that are IPMI v2.0 compliant.
Each of the four servers provides two Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 family processors per server node. Each node supports six 2.5” disks to 2 TB each. Thus each node supports 12 TB and a total of 48 TB of internal storage in a single 2U enclosure. Three PCIe 3.0 slots per node enable storage and networking expansion. Optional FlashDisk and FlashNAS storage support hundreds of terabytes.
“It is easy to see the immediate benefits of installing one unit rather than four with lower upfront costs plus cutting power and cooling immediately,” according to Mr. Jerry Namery, Chief Technology Officer. “Importantly, this converged solution provides a single point of contact for service and support.”
Prices for FlashServer 2Ux4 varies with options but start at $5,000. Products are available now and delivery is 2-3 weeks.
