Supermicro has designed 1U and 2U servers that support 20 Hot-Swap NVMe SSDs with non-blocking Gen 3 PCI-E x4 direct connections with up to 18m operations per second.
A 1U JBOF (Just a Bunch of Flash) server supports 32 hot-swap NVMe drives
"To achieve the lowest possible latency, Supermicro's new all-flash 1U and 2U Ultra servers are designed to support 20 directly attached hot-swap NVMe SSDs," said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. "These new X11 servers feature a non-blocking design, allocating 80 PCI-E lanes to the 20 NVMe SSDs for Gen 3 PCI-E x4 direct connections that achieve maximum storage performance."
The X11 Ultra servers fully support the high end Intel Xeon Scalable processors up to 205 W and 24 DIMMs making these servers an excellent choice for high-performance analytics and in-memory application acceleration. The system architecture is balanced to make optimal use of system resources with each processor supporting 10 NVMe drives and dual 25G ports or a 100G port.
