Supermicro Total Solutions for Nexenta

Supermicro offers Nexenta Software-Defined Storage based solutions in both self-contained and configurable reference architectures. View the below two sections for more details on different options available for your storage needs.

Simple, Scalable, High-Availability Storage Designed for Seamless "Out-of-the Box" Deployments

The Unified Storage Solution is fully tested, validated, and easy to deploy, manage and support storage solution. This purpose-built, small form factor cluster delivers enterprise grade, full featured unified file and block storage services and brings all the benefits of Software-Defined Storage, including flexibility and lower total cost of ownership.

The Unified Storage Solution comes in seven base High-Availability configurations including all-flash (2U), hybrid and archive (4U). These configurations were specifically designed to support your high performance databases, business-critical virtualized environments, generic file servers and near-line archive use cases.

The solution comes with installation services and a 3-year service agreement from Supermicro for the complete solution.

See the below chart or visit the datasheet for more details, click here.

Supermicro and Nexenta X10 Reference Architectures (RAs) are based on the powerful Supermicro 2U Ultra server as the head node and the high-density dual channel SAS3 JBODs as storage shelves. Supermicro 2U Ultra server platforms are designed for extreme performance, capacity and expandability. With superb chassis and thermal design, Ultra can support the highest Xeon processors (160W TDP), extremely large memory (1.5TB maximum) and can handle multiple (8x PCI-E slots) SAS HBAs, 10G NIC and FC adapters with ease. Ultra is also built with Titanium level (96%) power supplies with maximum power efficiency.
