New Supermicro NF1 Storage

Supermicro, in collaboration with Samsung, has developed an extremely dense, very high capacity, all-flash storage server platform poised to revolutionize the industry with its price/performance and design efficiency. sysGen is proudly happy to supply this opportunity of future technology to our customers. Using only one rack unit, it can house up to 576 TB of storage. The Samsung NF1 form factor was specifically designed to maximize performance and capacity for data-intensive/low latency workloads. As a leader in Flash technology, Samsung has created the NF1 form factor that has disrupted the storage industry with its reduced consumption of space and power.

Industry Leadership through collaboration

Supermicro, in collaboration with Samsung, has developed an extremely dense, very high capacity, all-flash storage server platform poised to revolutionize the industry with its price/performance and design efficiency. sysGen is proudly happy to supply this opportunity of future technology to our customers.

Using only one rack unit, it can house up to 576 TB of storage. The Samsung NF1 form factor was specifically designed to maximize performance and capacity for data-intensive/low latency workloads. As a leader in Flash technology, Samsung has created the NF1 form factor that has disrupted the storage industry with its reduced consumption of space and power.

NF1 Server High Efficiency Colling

Next Generation Storage Available Today

The NF1 storage server starts with a no-compromise motherboard featuring dual Intel™ Xeon™Scalable processors up to 205W, which provide up to 56 cores, and 24 DIMMs for 3 TB of system memory. It has a switched PCI-E architecture that supports 32 NF1 devices as well as four additional hybrid device slots which can be NVMe or SATA with M.2 connections. Besides, it provides the best cost per GB among all-flash systems. While many All-Flash systems are available, Supermicro’s NF1 server is different in both its media density and overall end-to-end architecture, making it perfect for high capacity network edge applications.

For example, next-generation 5G mobile service providers need more storage capacity closer to their customers to deliver the best user experience. All these Features make dedicated All-Flash scale-out storage the topology of choice.

Lowest Total Cost of Ownership

With the optimal thermal design, NF1 server can support more flash devices, while consuming less power, (greater overall efficiency) in turn enabling the use of more powerful CPUs and Memory. This delivers the best/price performance All-Flash platform available. And all of this in a system with only 30” of rack depth making deployment easy in any size rack.

Best End-to-End Perofrmacne: Optimal I/O Paths From Networking to Media

Balanced System Design

The balanced system architecture divides resources evenly across CPU, networking, and storage, this enables users to pin and provision IO resources for the lowest latency path from external clients to the NF1 storage devices.

On the front end, with 2 PCI-E 3.0 x16 slots, the highest performing network interface cards can be used to push NVMe performance. This system is also available with support for 100 GbE, as well as Infiniband and Omni-Path, for those organizations that require the absolute highest performance.

I/O Optimized Architecture for Lowest Latency

System latency is being measured in many ways; for a single node, it may be the performance between storage device to CPU. In the case of a storage server providing services to clients across a network, the PCI-E bandwidth for the NICs must be taken into account. The NF1 server has a topology allowing high bandwidth and the lowest latency for all applications.

As Flash memory is projected to be more than doubled in the next 18 months, we are preparing our customers for this with servers like the SSG-1029P-NMR36LNF1. The first system to offer the compact, density-optimized next-generation Flash form factor with the most excellent combination of performance, optimal power efficiency, and storage density.

This gives users the best TCO, and competitive advantage compared to other flash form factors shipping today.
