Equus Computer Systems to Showcase New 1.5U Server, with High Storage Density, in Booth 320 at ISC-East Show in New York

11/02/2016 | Press Room

Unique server, with decreased footprint and operating expenses, ideal for data storage in security applications

Equus Computer Systems, Inc., one of America’s largest manufacturers of custom hardware solutions, announces it will showcase its unique new 1.5U server in Booth 320 at ISC East 2016 taking place November 16th-17th, 2016 at the Javits Center North in New York City. With two drive drawers, each supporting eight 3.5-inch hot-swappable SAS/SATA hard drives, the Equus 1.5U server delivers up to 160TB of drive storage in a 1.5U form factor. The server also supports two internal 2.5-inch SSD drives, so it can scale out to 16 data drives, and still offer a separate redundant OS volume.

At data transfer rates of up to 12 Gb/s, the new 1.5U server has capacity and performance that make it ideal for those seeking to increase storage density while decreasing footprint and operational expenses, including in security applications. It is designed for those looking to optimize valuable data center rack space while improving efficiency.

The new server can accommodate 33 percent more drives than a typical 2U server, while using 25 percent less rack space. The availability of two drive drawers means drive failure will not bring the server down. Users can simply pull out the drive drawer and remove the failed drive while the rest of the drives in the drawer remain online.

The flexible 1.5U server is an excellent choice for object oriented storage, database, file, or analytic servers in security applications. Equus also offers custom configurations of the 1.5U server, and experts will be on hand at the show to discuss how these custom solutions can conform to any type of customer networking topologies or requirements. The server uses the latest Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 v4 family and the most current LSI/Broadcom controllers with cache backup.
