Equus Compute Solutions has partnered with HGST to offer their line of JBOF (Just a Bunch of Flash) All - Flash Storage systems. Gartner estimates that by 2020, 50% of data centers will use only solid state arrays for primary data. The HGST 2U24 Flash Storage Platforms are designed for software-defined storage (SDS) infrastructures. These JBOF systems balance performance with capacity, delivering high IOPS, and low latency at up to 184TB capacity. The HGST JBOF systems are a cost-effective way to jumpstart the migration to an all flash data center migration.
There are two 2U24 chassis configurations: the SATA-based chassis supports up to 24 CloudSpeed™ Gen II 2.5 in. SSD modules for up to 46TB capacity, and the SAS3 chassis supports 24 Ultrastar® 2.5 in. SSDs for up to 184TB. Both systems can start with as few as 12 SSDs and upgrade one additional SSD module at a time. Key features include up to six 12Gb/s SAS3 connections to the host system, that supports up to 4.7M IOPS with <1ms latency. A 5-year warranty is standard on all HGST JBOF systems.
