AAEON Releases Ultra High Density Intel® Xeon® Cloud Storage Servers
(Taipei, Taiwan) — AAEON, a major developer of industrial computing solutions, is pleased to announce the release of two of the most advanced, high density storage servers available in the world today, the Intel® Xeon® powered Poseidon series 1U CRS-300S-2R and the 2U CRS-720X-2R rackmount storage servers. These highly durable network storage servers offer cutting edge cloud computing advancements such as intelligent remote management functions, and offer one of the highest Terabyte per rack-U real estate within the same power consumption envelope, thus helping to lower TCO in sprawling data centers across the globe. High energy efficiency with well-designed airflow and redundant power supplies and fans help extend the product life of these mission critical appliances in today’s server rooms.
The CRS-300-2R is a 1U rackmount server with up to twelve 3.5” SATA disk bays for data node or object storage as well as NVR surveillance and data backup applications. Front mounted Hard Disk LED indicators provide immediate disk function information for seamless operation. Its Intel Xeon E3 processor offers energy-efficient performance, high I/O bandwidth, robust performance in disc-intensive retrieval applications and data throughput and advanced security features to shield against breaches and other forms of network intrusion. The dual 550W 80Plus Gold redundant power supplies offer protection against online service interruption due to power failures while its redundant fans offer reliable thermal protection for 24/7 disk operation and system longevity. The CRS-300-2R also features slot for a 2.5” SATA HDD, SSD or RAID card and four slots for memory expansion of up to 32G of DDR3 DRAM in addition to a PCI-e expansion port and two Intel server-grade 82574LGbE controllers which offer high network bandwidth.
“AAEON is currently the only supplier of network appliances with redundant power supplies at such high storage densities and performance levels while offering guarantees of up to five years of operation. This translates into nearly unprecedented cost per Terabyte savings and efficiencies over time,” says Rainy Lu, Senior Product Manager of AAEON’s Application Platform Division.
The 2U CRS-720X-2R High density network storage unit is powered by two Intel Xeon E5 processors and can host up to a record breaking sixty-six 2.5” Thin SATA Disks which at 1TB each can provide up to 66TB of Storage for Cloud Gateway, Data and Game Cloud applications. It also can be ordered with different power supply options, depending on the needs of the customer.
In addition to its five heat dispersal fans, the removable front panel of the CRS-720X-2R features two hot swappable 2.5” disk trays for OS and other software installation. The embedded BMC monitoring engine software provides KVM over IP and other remote maintenance and monitoring functions for added security and system reliability. The chassis of this storage unit has been carefully designed for anti-vibration, optimal thermal cooling and easy maintenance with rubber suspension mounts, swappable disk trays, and a solid connection with the disk backplane for assured connectivity and system longevity. The CRS-720X-2R’s robust expansion options will leave no network administrator wanting, with nine available PCI-e slots for SSD storage, encryption, NIC or graphic card expansion options and a host of other custom configuration possibilities to meet the needs of various networking applications. AAEON’s uniquely designed CRS-720X-2R will be a referenced choice for any business looking for a cost effective large array Network Storage Appliance.
The AAEON Poseidon CRS-720X-2R and CRS-300S-2R support operating systems such as Windows® 2008 R2, Windows® 7/8, Cent OS, RHEL, SuSE, and Linux Fedora and Ubuntu. For more product and service information, please contact one of AAEON’s regional sales representatives or visit www.aaeon.com.
