Customers Can Leverage Multiple Expansion Options with Flexible 60-bay and 90-bay Systems Available in Single-Node, Dual-Node, SBB, or JBOD Configurations

Super Micro Computer, Inc. (SMCI), a global leader in enterprise computing, storage, networking solutions, and green computing technology, announced an extension of its market-proven ultra-dense storage solutions with new 60-bay and 90-bay solutions. These best-in-class high-capacity storage and expansion systems are optimized for cloud-scale storage implementations as well as HPC storage applications.

This new top-loading architecture delivers the improved flexibility, modularity, and serviceability that customers need. Both 60-bay and 90-bay systems are available in single-node and dual-node configurations, where the drives evenly split between each node. Also, the drives can be in a storage bridge bay (SBB) configuration for high availability, in which both nodes have access to all the drives, and one node backs up the other in case of a failure. With a modular, tool-less design, all key onboard systems - hot-swap server nodes, expanders, fan modules, power supplies, and drives - are fully optimized for easy serviceability by a single technician.
