AIC Inc. has announced its new product family of high-density storage servers.

FREMONT, CA: AIC Inc. (from now on referred to as "AIC") is a provider in enterprise storage and server solutions; it has announced its new product family of high-density storage servers. The density-optimized storage servers are ideal for applications like cloud, software-defined storage, big data storage, VDI storage, and video streaming and surveillance.

AIC density-optimized servers are created to provide a powerful storage capability, reliability, and serviceability. With an impressive storage capacity of up to 102 bays, AIC density-optimized servers can provide up to 1PB storage capacity in a 4U height chassis. The hot-swappable functionality of power supply units and drive trays, along with the tool-less functionality of drive trays and backplanes, ensure the servers are easy to maintain, and the service downtime is minimized. Operators can quickly replace components while the system still keeps running. In this product family, SB403-VG, SB405-PV, and SB406-PV are designed with top-loading trays, which provide ultra-high storage density and significant TCO optimizing power efficiency.

AIC density-optimized servers include:

SB403-VG: 4U 60-bay 3.5" high-density storage server solution, supporting dual Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, SAS 12G backplane with built-in expander providing top-loading drive bays, 5x PCIe 3.0 slots for add-on cards.

SB405-PV: 4U 102-bay 3.5" ultra-density storage server solution, supporting dual Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, SAS 12G backplane, provides flexible options of single/dual processor controller, and smart IO usage with Max IO® technology to support up to 1x PCIe 3.0 x16 card via OCP Mezzanine.

SB406-PV: 4U 72-bay 3.5" high-density storage server solution, supporting dual Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, SAS 12G backplane, and smart IO usage with Max IO® technology to support up to 1x PCIe 3.0 x16 card via OCP Mezzanine and is suitable for cold storage which requires the capacity for a vast amount of data.
