2U24 Flash Storage Platform

Designed for Software-Defined Storage (SDS) systems, this flash storage platform balances performance with capacity, delivering high IOPS, low latency at up to 184TB capacity.

The 2U24 Flash Storage Platform is a key element of next generation Software-Defined Storage (SDS) systems. It offers performance advantages as well as flexibility to improve compute-to-capacity ratio by decoupling available storage from CPU resources.


  • High Density – Up to 24 2.5” SAS or SATA SSD modules in a 2U unit
  • Scalable – Connect up to six hosts via the 12Gb/s SAS3 interface
  • Performance – Up to 4.7M IOPS, 23 GB/s, less than 1ms latency




Designed for Enterprise and the Cloud

The 2U24 Flash Storage Platform addresses the demanding storage needs of large enterprises and Cloud service providers. With performance of up to 4.7M IOPS, 23 GB/s and less than 1ms latency, the Platform is the ideal solution for accelerating enterprise workloads such as Database, Virtualization and Scale-Out configurations. The flash platform delivers up to 184TB storage capacity, can be connected to up to six hosts via the 12Gb/s SAS3 interface, and offers enterprise-specific features including:

– Enterprise-class High Availability: hot swappable SSDs, IO Modules, and PSUs
– Fully upgradeable: upgradeable firmware enables drive technology and capacity updates without impacting applications
