Supermicro SuperStorage Server 5018A-AR12L

New-generation X11 Supermicro SuperStorage systems support node-based deployment strategies where CPU and HDD capacity scale together, or deployments can be expanded using JBODs for improved economy. Low-latency SSD applications, large media files requiring massive capacity and enterprise workloads looking for the highest performance will benefit from Supermicro's SAS 3.0 (12 Gbps) support which provides low-latency and maximum data bandwidth. The Supermicro SuperStorage systems offer a no-compromise storage platform with flexible market entry points from 2U, 3U, and 4U form factors using 2.5" or 3.5" SSDs/HDDs. SuperStorage servers support up to: 1TB 3DS ECC LRDIMM or 256GB ECC RDIMM memory, PCI-E 3.0 slots, NVMe, flexible networking options such as 10G SFP+, 10GBase-T LAN ports and IPMI 2.0 and KVM with dedicated LAN, and have support for the latest Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors.
