Steelix, a high-density storage server powered by AMD EPYCTM 7003 Series Processor, features 24x 3.5’’ HDDs and 4x 2.5’’ SSDs hot-plug drives and hot-swappable fan module with easy serviceability in a simple 2U enclosure. Steelix offers efficient computing power, storage capacity, and flexible I/O expansibility. This enables optimized workload for synergy across network, computing and storage. Provides a higher virtualized workload throughput and number of VM density and helps to adapt quickly to changing business computing needs.
Enhanced Performance and Advanced Security
Steelix is an industry-leading storage server that supports the new 3rd Gen AMD EPYC™ processor, with TDP of up to 280W. It provides exceptional performance with up to 64 cores, 128 lanes of PCIe Gen4 connectivity, and up to 4TB of memory across 16 DIMM slots. In addition, it has up to 32MB L3 cache per 8 core, helping accelerate memoryintensive workloads.
The embedded x86 silicon-level data enables Steelix to offer AMD Infinity Guard features, including Secure Memory Encryption (SME), which help secure the boot process, encrypt the entire main memory, and Secure Encrypted Virtualization (SEV), which can secure virtualized environments and container. Steelix is well guarded, which helps decrease potential attack surfaces and enable better protection of software and data.
Ultra-Density and Great Scalability
Steelix offers a variety of hot-pluggable hybrid flash array choices within the 2U form factor. It’s composed of 24 LFF HDD bays and 4 rear side SSD bays and provides multiple storage options for greater flexibility and scalability. Including NVMe support in the rear for a caching layer, 1x M.2 via interposer connection, and a variety of storage mezzanine cards
Besides, it supports up to 4TB of DDR4 memory. By hosting 4x PCIe slots (two x8 for Low profile + two x16 for FHHL) with riser cards and 1 PCIe x16 lanes for OCP 3.0, Steelix is an ideal hybrid system for warm storage and applicable for further storage applications. Optimizing the ratio of SSDs and HDDs can highly accelerate IOPS and throughput performance while the excellence of storage capacity is delivered.
Flexible Network Configuration
Steelix offers an OCP NIC mezzanine option, ranging from 10G Ethernet to 100G (optical or Base-T, compatible with OCP 3.0). This allows high-speed performance and I/O flexibility, catering to suitable demands of different application procedures.
