Aberdeen Stirling 288 Hyperconvergence Node Compute/Storage/Networking Highlights

The Stirling 288 is a 2U space-saving storage server that features 12 hot-swap hard drive or flash drive bays for data storage.  With 1.5TB memory capacity, up to 44 cpu cores, quad 10Gigabit networking and 12 fast SAS 12G bays for either SSD or HDD, the Stirling 288 is a truely hyperconverged server.  Aberdeen has certified it for VMware ESXi 6.7 and it is perfect for use in VSAN HCI deployments with at least 3 Stirling 288 being used together.

VMware vSAN

As the only vSphere-native software-defined storage platform, vSAN helps customers evolve to hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) without risk while lowering IT costs and providing an agile solution ready for future hardware, cloud and application changes. vSAN delivers flash-optimized, secure storage with the industry’s first native HCI encryption solution at a fraction of the cost of traditional, purpose-built storage and less-efficient HCI solutions.

vSAN pools together server-attached storage to provide a highly resilient shared datastore suitable for any virtualized workload, including businesscritical applications, virtual desktops, remote IT, DR, and DevOps infrastructure.
