Entei is a 2U dual socket storage server that can support 24x 3.5” and 4x 2.5” form factor hot-swappable drives with easy serviceability, offering balanced computing power and storage capacity, flexible I/O expansibility, and hardware redundancy. It is ideal for deployments of warm storage and software defined workloads.
Dual Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors with twelve DIMM capacity (up to 768GB with 64GB DIMMs) that lays a new foundation of scalability offering optimized workload for synergy across computing, network and storage, higher virtualized workload throughput and number of VMs, a great boost in performance, security, agility and efficiency, while catering to a wide range of key workloads.
Ultra-Dense in 2U Form Factor
Entei storage servers are not only composed of 24 LFF HDD bays and 4 rear side SFF SSD bays that are both hot-pluggable in a compact 2U form factor, but also offers multiple storage options for greater flexibility and scalability. NVMe support in the rear allows for a caching layer. It also includes 2x M.2 via interposer connection and a variety of storage mezzanine cards. Entei is an ideal hybrid system for warm storage and applicable for further storage applications. By optimizing the ratio of SSDs and HDDs, it can highly accelerate IOPS and throughput performance while the excellence of storage capacity is delivered.
Great Density and Scalability Adopts the Intel® C621 chipset, supports dual Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, and has up to 768GB of DDR4 memory. Entei hosts 3 PCIe x16 lanes, enabling expansion of up to 4 PCIe cards (two x8, two x16) with riser boards, and also supports Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory, etc.
Flexible Network Configuration Offering a dual 25G SFP28 OCP NIC mezzanine option, ranging from 10G Ethernet to 40G (optical or Base-T, compatible with OCP 2.0), the high-speed performance and I/O flexibility are realized, catering to suitable demands of different application procedures.
