#ServerEnvy: Hard Drives Need Not Apply
At iXsystems when we say custom, we do mean custom. No two clients have exactly the same requirements, so why would you expect a cookie-cutter solution to meet all of your needs? In this edition of #ServerEnvy, we’re taking a look at a custom-built 4U iX4424 Jupiter rackmount server. What makes it so intriguing?
Typically a system like this would house up to 24 hot-swappable HDDs but for this client’s specific needs, we populated this build with 2 x 1.2TB SSDs and another 2 x 800 GB SSDs for a total of 4TB of blazing-fast flash storage.
In addition, this build has 64 cores built from four Intel Xeon 16 core 2.5 Ghz CPUs. A 10 Gigabit Intel Ethernet controller with dual ports provides the ultimate in storage networking performance. For protection, the system is set up in a RAID 1 configuration, has multiple fans and is powered by a 1620W redundant power supply to keep the system safe and secure.
We build custom server solutions for all of a client’s needs and we’re always more than happy to help you out. If you have a problem you’d like us to help you with, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 1.855.GREP.4.IX for a risk-free consultation.
