The ion PS StorageServer starts with the Intel® S2600STB serverboard and Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors and scales from a few TiB to almost 200TiB when configured with RAID 60 and hot spares. Options for the PS StorageServer include up to 768GB RAM, a range of Intel® Data Center SSDs and/or Seagate® rotating disks, 1Gb, 10Gb, 25GB AND 40Gb Intel ® Server Ethernet NICs along with SAS3 and Fibre Channel HBAs.
The PS StorageServer scales in capacity from just a few terabytes to almost 200TiB, 196TiB, depending on RAID level, sparing and SSD caching. Each PS StorageServer is a 3U or 4U rackmount server. RASUM – Reliability, Availability, Serviceability, Usability and Manageability – were prime considerations throughout the design of the ion PS StorageServer. Toward that end, unless boot drives are configured in rear bays or onboard M.2 slots, all storage is front accessible with one drive per tray.
The ion PS StorageServer has been designed to make it very easy to select desired usable capacity, RAID level, hot spare disks, and SSD caching and receive a complete quotation for a highly reliable, high performance storage server that meets those parameters.
Despite the broad expandability of ion‘s PS StorageServer, it is still a highly compatible, high performance server, which means that it will very happily run Windows® or Linux® or Open-E JovianDSS, or almost anything else you might want to deploy on a server with huge storage capacity.
