Supermicro Simply Double Solutions

Supermicro's new Simply Double 2U SuperStorage systems include twice the number of hot-swap drive bays as 2U industry standard systems, thus offering up to twice the storage capacity and IOPS in the same amount of space. The additional drive bays are arrayed in a patented Riser Bay that is located on the top of the Simply Double systems for easy access and servicing. With twice the storage density, customers can greatly improve the price/performance of their storage deployments to maximize ROI.

The Supermicro 2U Simply Double SuperStorage systems are available in server or JBOD models that offer either 2.5" or 3.5" drive bays, and that also support All Flash NVMe SSDs or SAS 3.0 HDDs. Additional value-added features include an additional two rear hot-swap drive bays, 3 PCI-E 3.0 slots, redundant Titanium Level (96%+) high-efficiency power supplies, and support for the latest Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4/v3 family. This broad and feature rich product line allows customers to select the Simply Double solution that is optimized for their specific requirements, from IOPS intensive applications to deployments that require the highest storage capacity.
