QuantaGrid SD1Q-1ULH

Balance Computing Performance with Low Power Consumption

The SD1Q-1ULH storage server is embedded with 12 hot-swappable 3.5” HDDs, six 7mm SATA SSDs and one PCIe 2280 M.2 in a 1U-height chassis. Powered by the Intel® Xeon® D-1531 SoC processor, (with 45W TPD support), the SD1Q-1ULH system delivers balanced computing performance with low power consumption. It provides both extreme storage density and exceptional power efficiency to hyper-scale cloud data-centers. The SD1Q-1ULH system is a perfect system for software-defined-storage related applications, such as Ceph. It helps IT managers optimize overall rack and data-center space. With its innovative hot-swappable drive design, SD1Q-1ULH allows service technicians to service drives with minimal efforts and little to no downtime.

Embedded Dual Ports 10GbE SFP+ LAN

With 10GbE-KR dual ports embedded on mother board, the SD1Q-1ULH provides outstanding outside connecting performance. It also features OCP LAN mezzanine card solutions for additional requirements. With various controller and different speed options, customers can tailor the SD1Q-1ULH to their specific application needs.

Sophisticated Hybrid Architecture

Cache memory has become a must-have in software defined storage. As in related virtualization applications, cache memory also significantly boosts system performance and IOPS. The SD1Q-1ULH is equipped with one PCIe M.2 2280 SSD on board and four SATA SSDs in system front side. In addition,  there are 12pcs 3.5” large capacity HDDs for main storage access purposes. Thus, the SD1Q-1ULH has an ideal hybrid architecture system for tiered storage planning; it optimizes SSDs for accelerating IOPS and throughput, whiel keeping the large data storage capacity of HDDs.

Hot-Swappable and Easy Service

The SD1Q-1ULH is designed with sophisticated architecture to support 12 hot-swappable hard drives within a 1U chassis, providing optimized rack density and delivering non-disruptive on-site service.

With its Quanta patented design, inner cable chain and HDD carrier, the SD1Q-1ULH is very convenient for servicing and significantly reduces time spent on system deployment. No external cable management arm is required on the back of the rack and the HDDs are easily accessible without opening the top cover or disassembling the whole system.
