S2P | T21P-4U

Ultra-Dense Extreme Performance Storage Server

Tailored to meet the growing storage capacity demand in hyper scale datacenters, the S2P | T21P-4U equips up to seventy-eight hot-swappable and screw-less 3.5” drives and two high-computing server nodes into an ultra-dense 4U chassis. Capable of delivering up to 624 terabytes of storage in one system, the S2P | T21P-4U efficiently achieve the most demanding cloud storage environments planning today and future.

The S2P | T21P-4U is a highly sophisticated, dense storage server built to provide outstanding low dollar-per-GB costs for cold, warm and even hot storage workloads. With the latest Intel® Xeon® E5-2600v3,v4 processors and Quanta System Manager (QSM), the QuantaPlex S2P | T21P-4U offers cloud planners the storage capacity and the manageability they need.

Qualified Operating Systems

Maximized Storage Density

Aimed at streaming file, massive object or block level data stores for cloud environments, archive and data analytics with up to seventy-eight 3.5” SAS/SATA hard drives, each up to 14TB in capacity, QuantaPlex S2P | T21P-4U provides exceptionally high storage density while leveraging high-efficiency power to maximize performance-per-watt savings to reduce TCO. Two 2.5” SSD boot drives provide extra capability for high-performance storage within each node for fast access to frequently-used data.

Efficient System Assembly and Deployment

Driven by social media, mobile applications, and devices boosted by mega hyper scale datacenters, server and storage platforms are requiring more capacity to store the increasing volume of data and retain the data for longer periods of time than ever. To install higher density and large number of hard drives into one system is time consuming for system integrators and IT administrators. With innovated screw-less hard drive carrier design, S2P | T21P-4U allows operators can complete the system assembly in the short time, which is significantly reduce the deployment and service time.

Flexible and Versatile I/O Expansion

The S2P | T21P-4U support QCT made OCP LAN mezzanine card with varied type of Ethernet connectivity from 1Gb, 10Gb and 40Gb. Along with the support up to three additional PCIe Gen3 slots, offers flexible and versatile I/O expansion capability to eliminate costly bottlenecks. Deliver high availability even under heavy loading with up to four 1600W Platinum-efficiency power supplies that provide fully-redundant 2+2 split zone power configuration capabilities.
