AIC Announces Its New NVMe Storage Server FB201-LX Designed to Provide Well-Balanced Performances

AIC’s 2U 24-Bay NVMe Performance Balanced Machine FB201-LX, codename Pikes Peak, is designed to help customers to leverage the High Performance, large memory footprint enabled by Dual Intel® Scalable Processors, AIC Lynx Server Board, with 24 U.2 NVMe drives in the market.

City of Industry, California, August 1, 2018AIC today announced general delivery of FB201-LX, a Performance Balanced Machine that provides well-balanced performances among the NVMe drives, memory subsystem and interconnection network adapters.

The newly developed FB201-LX is designed with the philosophy that keeping a well-balanced CPU, memory and I/O subsystems will help customers to deliver symmetric I/O machines to deal with either Byte Addressable memory subsystems or Block Addressable storage subsystems. With that, AIC carefully architects the byte movements for NVMe drives, memory subsystem and interconnection networks, to deal with the unprecedented parallelism of applications and try to achieve scalable performance for I/O intensive applications.

FB201-LX Key Specifications:
- 2U 24x 2.5” hot-swappable NVMe drives
-AIC Lynx Server board with Dual Scalable Processors
- 24x DDR4 DIMM
- PCIe switch base design for NVMe drive connection
- Up to 4x PCIe X16 add-on cards support
- 2x PCIe X16 OCP Mezzanine cards support (optional)
- CRPS 1200W/1600W 1+1 redundant PSU

“We always try to design a server or a storage system that can benefit all performances and functions provided by new computer architectures nowadays,” said CT Sun, CTO and Vice President of Engineering of AIC.  “For NVMe storage servers, the key is how the systems can deliver compute and I/O capabilities properly.”

“The Pikes Peak is an excellent platform, designed with great rigor and capabilities that meet all our needs from PCI card slots, NVMe storage, to high reliability and performance,” said Stephen Sicola, Executive Vice President and Chief Architect of Formulus Black. “AIC has done a marvelous job with Pikes Peak, giving Formulus Black, a software company, the opportunity to provide our customers with THE platform that allows our software to meet or exceed its mission.”

FB201-LX targets at the applications that demands memory and I/O intensive markets, which includes support for massive databases with scale-out storage and real-time analytics for cloud and mega datacenters, HFT, Search Engines, HPC, Oil and Gas industry applications, CDNs, VDI and enterprise environment.

AIC will demonstrate New Era of Storage with Peaks Series at the 2018 Flash Memory Summit – Booth 801 held at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA from August 7 to 9 and at the 2018 VMworld – Booth 1642 held at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV from August 26 to 30. In addition, AIC will also showcase a complete product line of new generation NVMe storage servers, JBOF with SmartNIC cards, High-availability and All-Flash Array NVMe storage servers.
