Aberdeen Stirling X49 Storage Server Highlights

The Stirling X49 is a 4U dual-sided top loading storage server that features 78 (70 top and 8 rear) hot-swap 3.5"/2.5" hard drive bays for data storage and 2 additional rear hot swap SSD drives for the OS drives. The X49 is part of the first generation of Aberdeen Stirling X Storage servers to feature Intel E5 2600 v4 Series Xeon processors based on exciting new Haswell architecture. With support for up to 1TB of DDR4 memory, dual 10GbE LAN port option, PCI Express 3.0 expansion slots, and 78 HDD in only 4U of space, the X49 is truely our most storage dense rackmount server to date.

Ultra-Dense Extreme Performance Storage Server

Tailored to meet the growing storage capacity demand in hyper scale datacenter, the Stirling X49 equips up to seventy-eight hot-swappable and screw-less 3.5" or 2.5" drives into an ultra-dense 4U chassis. Capable of delivering up to 780 terabytes of storage in one system, the Stirling X49 efficiently serves the most demanding cloud storage environments. With innovated screw-less hard drive carrier design, the Stirling X49 can be serviced in a fraction of the time compared to typical chassis.

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.

  • Up to 22 cores and 44 threads per socket
  • Up to 55 MB of last-level cache (LLC) for fast access to frequently used data
  • 9.6GT/s QPI processors support DDR4 2400MHz memory
Opening the server storage bottleneck

12Gb/s SAS to the server marketplace creates solutions that eliminate data bottlenecks in sizable storage environments.
