SGI Modular InfiniteStorage Server
High Density Storage and Four Intel? Xeon? Multi-core
Processors in a Single Chassis
SGI Modular InfiniteStorage Server (SGI MIS Server) is a
high-density integrated storage server platform, designed for maximum
flexibility in its capability to be configured to customer requirements and cost
effectively scaling compute capability, performance and capacity to meet the
needs of today's data environments.
Industry Leading Density
As a modular storage server designed for customer applications that
require a tight coupling of data storage and compute resources, SGI MIS Server
delivers industry-leading density by packaging up to two server motherboards
together with up to 72 3.5" SAS or SSD drives within a single 4U, chassis. Each
of the two compute engines in SGI MIS Server provides dual socket capability
which are populated from the Intel? Xeon? processor E5 family.
adaptability to specific storage and processing requirements means that
customers are able to find the right balance between cost and performance in a
modular, scalable platform that is designed to grow as business requirements
SGI MIS Server can leverage even greater density by adding one or more SGI MIS JBODexpansion chassis, each of
which can be configured with up to 81 3.5" or 2.5" drives for up to 324TB in 4U.
When combined with SGI's 19" D-Rack, or other standard rack, up to 3.2PB of
capacity and up to forty discrete high-performance processors can be supplied
within a single 19" rack footprint. This density enables IT organizations to
reclaim valuable floor space and reduce power and cooling costs.
Server is designed for maximum serviceability with hot pluggable and redundant
components. With MIS V1.5, server assemblies can be added and services
non-disruptively, without impacting the other server within the same enclosre.
Through an innovative rail design, the chassis can be accessed from the front or
rear, enabling drives and other components to be non-disruptively replaced. This
simple feature not only makes the system much easier to service, but it
significantly reduces the strain on cables and connectors that is a frequent
source of fragility in other large systems that require heavy trays to be pulled
out entirely to access individual components.
Server is a solution that enables customers to have exactly the
