Server manufacturer Inventec has introduced its latest high density storage server Steelix.
This new server provides efficient computing performance with a single socket solution that supports the new 3rd Gen AMD EPYC processor. Inventec Data Center Solutions (Inventec EBG) was established in 1998 and has been focusing on the design and manufacturing of server systems in Inventec Corporation. Over decades, Inventec EBG has been the key server system supplier of the global branding clients.
“Steelix is an ideal hybrid system for warm storage and is applicable to further storage applications. By optimizing the ratio of SSDs and HDDs, it can highly accelerate IOPS and throughput performance while offering excellent storage capacity. Steelix can provide a higher virtualized workload and adapt quickly to changing business computing needs,” said George Lin, General Manager of Business Unit VI, Inventec Enterprise Business Group (Inventec EBG).
With TDP of up to 280W, Steelix provides a high-level performance with up to 64 cores, 128 lanes of PCIe Gen4 connectivity, and up to 4TB of memory across 16 DIMM slots. The server also possesses up to 32MB of L3 cache per 8 cores, supporting heavy workloads.
Steelix helps minimize potential attack surfaces and protect software and data through the AMD Infinity Guard features, including Secure Memory Encryption (SME) which helps secure the boot process and encrypts the entire main memory, and Secure Encrypted Virtualization (SEV) which helps secure virtualised and container environments. Also, considering that each user has different needs, Steelix is created to be adaptable to various scenarios.
For example, Steelix offers an OCP NIC mezzanine option, ranging from 10G Ethernet to 100G to allow high-speed performance and I/O flexibility. At the same time, the storage server possesses a hot-swappable fan module with easy serviceability in a simple 2U enclosure, the company said.
