Ability Dual-Node Storage Server Platform

The Overview

The Ability® storage server is an ultra dense, high performance solution designed for Cloud, Windows Server 2012, various I/O server and ZFS applications. Our high capacity storage servers are fully customisable for a wide range of operating systems and applications.

The server nodes [E5 2600 family] provide advanced capabilities to retrieve data from 60 full-height drives and protect against data loss in the event of power faults using an optional backup battery pack. A nontransparent bus allows bridging of two server nodes for redundancy or computational expansion when running Linux. With a dual slot expansion card, users can use a variety of PCI E cards including RAID SAS and network cards. The onboard SAS controller provides bridging fabric between the processors and the server storage.
