CSS-2160 Hyper Converged Storage Server

CSS-2160 Hyper Converged Storage Server

The CSS-2160 is a hyper-converged storage-server appliance based on dual socket Intel Xeon processors, supporting up to 28 cores per socket. The storage system supports 4xU.2 NVMe 2.5" SSDs and 12x2.5" SATA3 SSDs, all contained within 1RU chassis. The Intel Xeon Purley platform increases CPU capacity and performance for virtual machine consolidation and density, as well as boosting memory bandwidth (six channels). The flexible CSS-2160 design supports 12 DDR4 DIMM slots per CPU, two PCIe expansion slots, and four 10GbE SFP+ network ports. The hardware platform is truly open, either install an available operating system and application software that suits your needs for data center server, server virtualization, network function virtualization, UTM gateway, SDN controller, and Cloud appliance.
