Configure 4 Servers with up to 1,024TB in 2RU with ScaleFlux Hard Drives

The S5Z | T43Z-2U based on PCIe Gen 4.0 and Intel's 3rd Generation Processor Family (Ice lake) is a high performance, multi node server offering eight (8) CPU and upto 320 cores in 2RU as part of four (4) independent nodes. Each node offers two (2) CPU Sockets for up to 80 cores using Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8380 Processor 40cores each, 16 Memory slots for up to 4TB DIMM, four (4) CSD U.2 NVMe for up to 256TB per node or up to 1,024TB in 2RU chassis, two (2) M.2 NVMe for OS or caching, and three (3) x PCIe 4.0 expansions slots for Network Interface Cards NIC or accelerators like GPU. 

Hyperscalers has qualified Computational Storage Drives by ScaleFlux across our hardware range as well as our software defined appliance range to offer customers outcomes that quadruple storage capacity, double performance, and halve flash cost.

Quadruples Capacity

Utilizes hardware engines to transparently compress data on writes and decompress the data on reads, enabling customers to multiply the effective capacity of the Flash up to 4x.

Doubles Performance

Testing by customers, industry leaders and ScaleFlux technologists shows that applications can achieve 2x or more performance with consistently low latency compared to the same systems using ordinary SSDs.

Halves Flash Cost

Through multiplying the effective capacity of the Flash without penalizing performance, CSD 2000 users can slash the costs of their Flash infrastructure while meeting performance & latency goals.

How Does CSD Work 

The ScaleFlux® CSD 2000 Series sets a new standard for performance consistency across workloads (random read/write IOPs). Where other SSDs' performance rapidly drops off as even a small percentage of writes are introduced into the workload, the CSD 2000's data path compression/ decompression engines enable the drive both to store more GB of data per GB of Flash and to maintain high performance within a narrow band regardless of the read/write mix.

The CSD 2000 Series combines up to 8TB of the latest 3D NAND Flash technology with hardware-accelerated compute engines, achieving incredible data read/write speeds and consistently low latency to boost application performance.

Computational storage drive expansion presents a larger drive capacity to the operating system than the physical size of the drive itself. This groundbreaking technology enables customers to realise cost saving multiples typically of 2.5 to 3.5 times (and potentially beyond) for NVMe class drives. This in turn brings the price point of NVMe class drives much closer to the cost per terabyte normally associated with hard disk drive (HDD) equipment.
