Western data ultrastar serv24-4n four node nvmetm full flash platform and ultrastar serv24 + 6 hybrid platform are oriented to price sensitive data centers and edge environments, bringing new heights of computing in terms of performance, density and scalability
·The new ultrastar serv product series of Western data company provides basic building blocks for high-performance, data intensive software defined storage (SDS), hyper converged infrastructure (HCI) and edge computing and storage environment. It is widely accepted and adopted in software defined environment and big data environment.
·Ultrastar serv24-4n’s four node storage server can give full play to the advantages of nvme performance in HCI environments that rely on fast, high-density and efficient storage.
·Ultrastar serv24 + 6 hybrid storage server is a high-capacity dual core CPU storage server, which can balance the performance and capacity of SDS, and can be used as an edge node for Internet of things data and video security.
On August 12, 2019, Beijing – Western Data Corporation (NASDAQ: WDC) today announced the launch of two new products for its data center system – ultrastar serv24-4n four node nvme full flash storage server platform and ultrastar serv24 + 6 hybrid storage server platform. The new product is a flexible and scalable storage server building module, which is oriented to SDS, HCI and edge environments and provides extremely fast, dense and efficient shared storage for it architects, cloud service providers and system integrators.
As enterprises continue to cope with the endless “data tsunami”, more and more it managers are turning to cost-effective software defined infrastructure, such as SDS or HCI, so as to effectively solve the complexity problems faced in large-scale storage, access, sharing and data protection. Most of the advantages of SDS and HCI are well known, such as lower cost, good system scalability and relatively independent and flexible hardware selection. IDC, an industry analysis company, predicts that the compound annual growth rate of the software defined storage market will reach 14.7% before 2022; The HCI market is expected to accelerate at a rate of 25.2% by 2022. By meeting the growing demand of market segments and the needs of various use cases and environments, western data continues to expand the product portfolio of ultrastar service platform, including remote office / Branch Office (Robo), virtual desktop architecture (VDI), edge Internet of things and video security environment, test / development environment, and promote data backup and disaster recovery (DR).
Western data ultrastar serv24-4n four node nvme full flash platform storage server is specially designed for HCI and horizontally expanded SDS
Western Digital’s ultrastar serv24-4n is designed for high-performance HCI deployment and is suitable for data intensive applications that rely on fast and efficient storage. Through the combination of high computing density and optimal design, the speed of nvme SSD is improved to a greater extent. Its main highlights include:
·It has four server nodes, each server node adopts dual core CPU design, and has 24 complete PCIe channels connected to 6 SSDs, giving full play to the performance advantages of nvme.
·Including Intel ™ Xeon ™ (Xeon) scalable processor CPU and chipset. The number of cores and power parameters can be flexibly selected to reasonably match the data workload and meet the efficiency requirements of the data center.
·Each node has three x16 PCIe slots, which greatly improves the network performance.
·Provides high availability and enterprise class reliability with an original capacity of 184tb.
The western data ultrastar serv24 + 6 high-density storage server balances the capacity and performance of SDS
Designed for data intensive applications, ultrastar serv24 + 6 is a powerful high-density 2U hybrid storage server. Due to the good balance between capacity and computing performance, typical use cases of SDS include file service, media streaming, video security, Internet of things data collection, backup and archiving, and big data analysis. Key highlights include:
·Innovative solutions are adopted to increase the capacity density to a greater extent. Only 2U is required to provide 24 hard disk slots, and 4 additional hard disk slots can be selected at the rear, with an original capacity of up to 420tb.
·New high-performance Intel Xeon scalable processors can be selected to enable users to match processing power with their workload and power budget.
·Provide a flexible choice of SAS or SATA HDDs to balance the system performance and cost requirements of applications.
·There are up to 6 nvme SSDs in the rear shelf, providing mixed support to realize the data acceleration layer, so as to improve application performance.
Western data’s ultrastar serv24-4n and ultrastar serv24 + 6 storage servers are provided with a five-year limited warranty. Ultrastar serv24-4n will be launched this quarter through Western Digital’s global distributors and channel partners, providing a variety of configuration options. Ultrastar serv24 + 6 has samples for testing and will be supplied in batches from September.
Phil Bullinger, senior vice president and general manager of data center system business department of Western data company, said: “Our goal is to help our users build an efficient and cost-effective infrastructure, without sacrificing performance, reliability and data availability, so that users can get more value from data. Whether users are processing big data or fast data in small-scale or ultra large-scale cloud data centers, our full range of dedicated storage solutions can meet demanding performance and capacity requirements while still meeting the requirements Provide superior TCO (total cost of ownership). The new ultrastar serv platform extends the technical value we provide to our users to more effectively manage the complex data world. “
Barbara Murphy, vice president of marketing and products at wekaio, said: “Since last year, we have cooperated with Western Data Corporation to build a joint solution on the nvme platform and Weka file system of Western data, which has greatly expanded our user base in the machine learning and HPC market. At present, we are committed to promoting innovation and expanding more possibilities. With the help of Western data ultrastar serv24-4n nvme storage server, we can develop a series of applications to meet the performance requirements of ultra-high file system. W Ekaio software is combined with the nvme platform of Western data company to achieve ultra-high economy by reasonably balancing the high-performance flash memory and efficient cost of Pb cloud object storage. “
Lior gal, CEO and co-founder of excelero, said: “users in the distributed block storage system not only need to obtain convenience, but also need to have a wide range of choices to meet the extremely demanding application needs such as transactional database, data analysis, artificial intelligence and machine learning. Therefore, western data company put excelero’s nvmesh ® Consolidating into ultrastar serv24-4n storage servers is killing two birds with one stone. As the leading distributed nvme block memory in the market, nvmesh runs with ultrastar serv24-4n nvme hard disk, which can help it teams deploy effectively and expand rapidly based on the growth of potential demand. “
