QCT Announces Three New Storage Servers

QCT (Quanta Cloud Technology) has unveiled the QuantaGrid D51PH-1ULH, T21P-4U, and T21SR-2U, three new storage solutions that are designed to accommodate a variety of storage applications ranging from tiering, scale out cloud storage to large-scale, high-computing enterprise applications. All three hybrid, ultra-dense, and converged storage platforms will be on display at the COMPUTEX Taipei 2015 event.

QuantaGrid D51PH-1ULH

The QuantaGrid D51PH-1ULH is a 1U hybrid, scale-out, high computing storage server built for use cases involving software defined storage, tier storage, and enterprise high computing applications as well as the ideal platform for OpenStack, Ceph, and Hadoop storage technologies. The D51PH-1ULH is also the industry’s first 1U x 12 H/S HDDs + 4 H/S SSDs storage server that is based on the Intel Xeon processor E5 v3 product family all the while boasting a flexible, hybrid platform ideal for tier storage.

QCT indicates that it offers businesses an optimized rack density with 50 percent space savings. In addition, the new storage server is equipped with a flexible OCP LAN mezzanine card that supports a variety of networking options and QCT innovative architecture. It is also designed to support ultra-dense hot-swappable drives in 1U form factor, which significantly alleviates the service issues and improves rack air flow.

QuantaPlex T21SR-2U

The QuantaPlex T21SR-2U is the company’s new generation 2U two-node cluster-in-a-box server based on Intel Xeon processor E5 v3 product family. Two server nodes are clustered using a PCIe interconnection or 10Gb and share up to 24 disk drives in a 2U chassis. Interconnection between the server nodes use the mid-plane, allowing the other server board to take control if one server board fails while gaining full access to HDD and front end host I/O to keep the system online and running. In addition, the QuantaPlex T21SR-2U uses a backup battery unit (BBU) as data vaulting solution, which provides up to 120 seconds of power for each node after a power failure. The server is also designed to help software developers by backing up data in memory to local flash before a graceful shut down.
