Today One Stop Systems (OSS), a leading provider of HPC appliances, introduces the OCP Flash Storage Array (OCP-FSA), supporting over 250TB of Flash storage in a 2U form factor. The OCP-FSA supports up to three host servers through PCI Express (PCIe) x16 Gen3 connections. In addition, a shelf manager provides an IPMI connection as well as hot-plug support and thermal management of the system. OSS will be showing the OCP-FSA in booth 2324.
The OCP-FSA is designed to comply with the Open Rack Standards set by the Open Compute Project (OCP). The 22-inch wide chassis fits into an OCP rack and has three method clips that pass power from the power bus bars in the rear of an OCP rack to the chassis. In order to supply power to a fully populated system, three high-power ideal diodes are located at each clip to allow load sharing. A slide out tray provides easy access to the internal memory. The incredible density provides a truly innovative product for high performance computing applications. This state-of the art array combines One Stop System’s PCIe expertise and flash memory to offer the fastest storage possible in a small footprint. With the new OCP-FSA, storage users no longer have to make tradeoffs among capacity, performance, size, and weight and power consumption. Latest performance figures for the OCP-FSA using carrier cards with four 1TB M.2 modules each and three PCIe uplinks performs 8.35 million IOPS.
“OSS continues to lead the industry in bringing new flash storage array products to market,” said Steve Cooper, OSS CEO. “OSS is one of the only companies that are currently producing expansion products as dense as the OCP-FSA. By combining our PCIe expertise, flash memory and Open Compute Project standards, we have created a state-of-the-art storage array that can provide fast response time, high-availability, and high-speed data processing in data centers, clouds, mega websites, and high-performance applications. Another feature of this product is the ability to upgrade the memory capacity. A user can start with the entry level product and upgrade to 500TB as needed. A single carrier can support up to four 1TB M.2 modules currently and 1TB modules as they become increasingly available. New cards are being released that support up to eight modules.”
The entry level product (OCP-FSA-32) contains 32.3TB of PCIe Flash storage, starting at $49,000. Availability is eight weeks ARO. This model is easily upgradeable by increasing the number and capacity of M.2 modules.
