SM1693 Rackmount Storage Server

The Cirrascale CirraStor SM1693 rackmount storage server is a revolutionary 1U rackmount server that dramatically increases data storage IOPS. All ten 2.5" front access drive bays support hot-pluggable PCIe I/O interface. Owners can tailor system storage architecture by mixing traditional hard disk drives and Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) SSD.

Product Features and Benefits

  • Ultra low-latency NVMe solution.
  • Flexible and scalable I/O options.
  • Supports up to 10 hot-pluggable 2.5" SSDs with PCIe I/O interface.
  • Supports up to 1280GB of 2133MHz DDR4 LRDIMM memory per node.

CirraStor SM1693 Rackmount Storage Server Overview

The Cirrascale CirraStor SM1693 is a revolutionary 1U rackmount server that dramatically increases data storage IOPS. All ten 2.5" front access drive bays support hot-pluggable PCIe I/O interface. Owners can tailor system storage architecture by mixing traditional hard disk drives and Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) SSD.

Powered by Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v3 product family and DDR4 memory technology, it allows owners to upgrade computing performance without compromising power consumption. Also with its enhanced thermal and power design, the server can operate under 35ËšC ambient temperature without throttling even if a fan rotor fails. This allows customers to save unnecessary datacenter cooling costs and achieve higher DCIE (Data center infrastructure efficiency) value.

NVMe is an innovative host controller interface specification for SSDs to be accessed through the PCIe bus. The data bandwidth increases to five times the traditional SATAIII interface (6Gb/s compared with 31.5Gb/s of PCIe3.0x4), and the new interface significantly reduces the latency caused by register access. This solution efficiently supports multi-core architectures and SR-IOV for data-intensive virtualization workloads. On the CirraStor SM1693, all ten 2.5" front access drive bays support hot-pluggable PCIe I/O interface. Owners can combine traditional hard disk drives and NVMe-based SSDs to tailor system storage architecture to their needs.

The CirraStor SM1693 provides flexible I/O scalability for today's diverse data center application requirements. It features OCP LAN mezzanine card solutions in addition to dual GbE or 10GbE LAN on motherboards. With various controller vendors and different speed and technology options, customers can choose from 1GbE to 56GbE bandwidth, copper or fiber-optic cabling, basic Ethernet function or FCoE and ISCI SAN connectivity.

With the consistent advances in technology, Cirrascale engineering and development teams are constantly testing and deploying the latest technical specifications being offered by our technology partners. We make every effort to provide the below specifications error-free and up-to-date.
