SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 26 — Chelsio Communications, a leading provider of 10Gb Ethernet Unified Wire Adapters, ASICs and Unified Storage software solutions, today announced a family of highly scalable, high performance storage configurations based on Unified Storage Server (USS) software and off-the-shelf components. Designed for system integrators and resellers selling solutions for scalable cloud storage and HPC distributed storage, these pre-certified storage configurations can scale from 50 Terabytes to more than a Petabyte.
All the solutions include Chelsio USS software preinstalled, which upgrades the configurations from boxes with disks into high performance, feature-rich file and block storage solutions. The configurations are all built from Supermicro platforms, LSI RAID cards and Chelsio T4 Unified Wire Adapters. The BOM for these configurations are available to Chelsio integrators and resellers to enable local, partial and derivative solutions.
The storage configurations are:
“Supermicro’s server and storage Building Block Solutions offer maximum performance, reliability and expandability for the most demanding, data-intensive applications,” said Wally Liaw, vice president of sales, International, at Supermicro. “We are pleased to have Chelsio certifying configurations based on Supermicro’s platforms that deliver increasingly higher levels of IOPs and storage capacity. Working together, we are providing customers the best quality, performance and price to help them successfully support and scale their businesses.”
Unified Storage Array
The Unified Storage Array is housed in a 4U storage chassis, which includes 36 3.5” hot-swappable drive bays. It is available in two standard configurations:
Unified Storage Head
The Unified Storage Head comes in two configurations, as a dual HA head with integrated SAS storage in an SBB form factor, and as a dual HA head with external storage in a 2U form factor. The SAS configuration utilizes a 3U storage chassis, with dual SBB-compliant motherboards, and 16 3.5” hot-swappable drive bays per head. The 2U form factor is available with dual motherboards and six hot swappable drives per bay head. SBB configurations are available with or without storage drives:
