AIC Inc. announced its new product family of mainstream dual socket storage servers. Powered by 3rd Gen. Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, these rackmount storage servers are high-performance and designed with high flexibility to support various storage devices. This new product family provides options ranging from cost-efficiency servers to high-performance all-flash NVMe platforms and can fulfill a wide range of data storage applications from storage tiering, and virtualization to cloud datacenters and high-performance computing (HPC).
This new product family includes three models, SB101-A6, SB202-A6, and SB201-A6. These dual-socket server systems are with an AIC server board (codename: A6) that is based on 3rd Gen. Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors. By leveraging 3rd Gen. Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors ‘great features, including CPU TDP supports up to 270W, DDR4 memory, PCIe Gen4 ready, built-in AI, and enhanced security, the new server systems provide excellent performances and low latency while maintaining the cost-effective benefits. Customers can utilize the enhanced Intel CPU performances, memory capabilities, and doubled PCIe Gen4 I/O bandwidth to tackle the challenges in data storage workloads. Besides, the new server systems are designed with universal (tri-mode) backplanes and can support SAS*, SATA, and NVMe, providing great flexibility for customers to load either 3.5″ or 2.5″ HDDs/SSDs. With tool-less features, the new server systems can save operators a significant amount of maintenance resources, which is crucial for hyper-scaler and cloud environments.
