Equus Computer Systems to Showcase High Storage Density 1.5U Server in Booth 530 at NAB Show New York

Unique server, with data transfer rates of 12 Gb/s, decreases footprint and operating expenses

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 #530 at the NAB Show New York, taking place November 9th-10th, 2016 at the Javits Convention Center. 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 television, broadcasting, and other video storage environments. 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 a great fit for academia, medical, enterprise, or content delivery applications. It is a good choice for object oriented storage, database, file, or analytic servers.

Equus 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.
