StoreNAS S-Series for Windows have been designed for use with the latest Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2012 R2. Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 offers a number of greatly enhanced capabilities and benefits when compared with previous versions. Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 delivers excellent economics for a shared storage solution by gaining leverage from industry-standard hardware matched with robust storage capabilities. It delivers continuous availability that is designed to protect organizations from a range of failures and to help prevent downtime, and it offers organizations a scalable and reliable solution. Other new features include next generation processors, improved expansion bus tecnology, greater memory capacity and more efficient power supplies.
E5-2600 v4 Xeon processor and DDR4-2400 memory support
More execution resources for higher overall performance. With up to 22 cores per socket, up to 55 MB of last-level cache (LLC), and support for up to 12 percent faster DDR4 memory versus previous-generation memory, the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 product family increases performance across a broad range of workloads, from business and technical computing applications to communications and storage solutions. These processors come in a wide variety of configurations, so core counts, frequencies, and power levels can be tailored for individual workloads to deliver optimal performance.
Opening the server storage bottleneck
12Gb/s SAS to the server marketplace creates solutions that eliminate data bottlenecks in sizable storage environments.
Intelligent Platform Management Interface
For hardware-level platform monitoring and control functions, the IPMI protocol utilizes an out-of-band network to provide a flawless and secure path for mission-critical applications when regular in-band connectivity is lost or is unresponsive. Remote access for monitoring and administration allows the server administrators to view a server’s hardware status remotely, receive an alarm automatically if a failure occurs, and power cycle a system that is non-responsive.
