EthoScaleCM – Capacity Storage

The EthoScaleCM Storage Servers are built to provide capacity storage utilising a unique, space efficient form factor. The innovative hardware design supports up to twelve 3.5” hard disk drives and four 2.5” solid state disk drives in a single rack unit. A starting cluster of three EthoScaleCM server nodes provides up to 288TB of raw storage capacity; the high density architecture easily supports a multi Petabyte cluster in a single 42U rack, scaling to multiple racks as storage needs dictate.

Nodes can be added to a cluster one at a time supporting an incremental, pay-as-you-grow approach.

EthoScalePM – Performance Optimised Capacity Storage

The EthoScalePM Storage Servers are built to provide performance optimised capacity storage. Each server node supports up to twelve 3.5” hard disk drives and two 2.5” PCIe (NVMe) solid state disk drives in a two rack unit form factor; the PCIe SSDs provide a high speed metadata store and cache. A starting cluster of EthoScalePM three server nodes provides up to 216TB of raw storage capacity.

A cluster can be expanded one node at a time and scaled to thousands of nodes in a single cluster.

EthoScaleHM – High Performance Storage

The EthoScaleHM Storage Servers are built to provide a high performance storage capability. Each server node supports up to six 2.5” hard disk drives and four 2.5” PCIe (NVMe) solid state disk drives in a one rack unit form factor. The PCIe SSD configuration of the EthoScaleHM has been designed to provide both a high speed metadata store and cache and also support the provisioning of “all-flash” persistent volumes (aka “pin to flash”) to provide dedicated, consistent performance for latency sensitive applications. A starting cluster of three EthoScaleHM server nodes provides up to 45TB of raw storage capacity.

A cluster can be expanded one node at a time and scaled to thousands of nodes in a single cluster.
