CirraStor SM1694 Scale-Out Storage Server Overview

The Cirrascale CirraStor SM1694 is tailored for hyper-scale datacenters and software defined storage solutions, and features hybrid tiered storage architecture in an ultra-dense hot-swappable 1U platform.

The CirraStor SM1694 features 12 hot-swappable 3.5" disk drives and 4 SSDs in a 1U chassis, delivering excellent computing performance using a dual Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3 processor architecture. It provides both extreme storage density and computing power to hyper scale cloud data centers which require not only the large storage capacity but also enterprise class computing capability. It helps IT managers to optimize overall rack and data center space. With its innovative hot-swappable drive design, the CirraStor SM1694 allows service technicians to service drives with minimum efforts and little to no downtime.

Caching is a requirement not only in today's software defined storage solution but also virtualization applications to boost performance and IOPs. The CirraStor SM1694 is equipped with 4x SSDs in addition to 12x 3.5" high capacity disk drives, such hybrid architecture is ideal for tier storage planning which solid-state drives are required to accelerate IOPs and throughput, and not sacrificing large data storage capacity.

The CirraStor SM1694 is designed with delicate architecture to support 12 hot-swappable 3.5" hard drives within a 1U chassis, which provides optimized rack density and also deliver non-disruptive on-site service. With this design, there is no external cable management arm required which significantly reduce the system deployment and rack assembly time, and also simplify the rack cable routing in the rear.

The CirraStor SM1694 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.
