IsoVibe™ Vibration Isolation Technology

Precise cuts in the baseboard provide a suspension for the drives in the chassis, isolating them from transmitted vibration. The result is that consistent performance is maintained, even when all the drives are working hard.

ArcticFlow™Thermal Zone Cooling Technology

By introducing cool air into the center of the chassis, drives operate at lower and more consistent temperatures than conventional systems. This results in lower fan speeds, reduced vibration, lower power consumption,quieter operation and ultimately higher reliability.

Designed for High Density and Flexibility

The 2CRSi ULYS 1.68SP has dual high-performance Intel® Xeon Scalable Processor-based CPUs to deliver the performance to manage demanding workloads in Software-De-fined Storage (SDS) environments. With up to 1.2PB in the enclosure, it delivers high density (up to 270TB per rack unit). With a choice of CPUs, memory, and drives, it provides the flexibility to balance performance with cost.

Designed for Big Data and Software-Defined Storage

The new, high-capacity storage server addresses the demanding storage needs of large enterprise customers, OEMs, Cloud Service Providers, and resellers/integrators that require dense shared HDD or hybrid storage with compute included.
