AIC Presents A Broad Portfolio of Rack, NVMe Series, and High-Performance Storage Server Solutions in 2017 Computex

05/30/2017

Taipei, Taiwan – May 31st, 2017 – AIC Inc., (from now on referred to as “AIC”) a leading player in server and storage solutions industry worldwide, will bring out the whole series of products at 2017 Computex Taipei, (05/30~06/03/2017), on the fourth floor of Nangang Exhibition Hall. This year with separate zones of Rack and All-Flash-Array NVMe, to showcase the new generation Smart Rack and OCP Rack. With a complete product line of All-Flash-Array NVMe storage server, including 1U 10-Bay, 2U 24-Bay which support Single/Dual-port NVMe SSD, and 2U 4-Node Hyper-Converged server. AIC to demonstrate the accumulation of solid strength after developing data center, cloud computing, and high-speed storage markets for years.

Since 2014, AIC started to develop business in the Cloud Computing and Data Center market. In the 2017 Computex, not only bring out our new generation of 48U Smart Rack and 15U19” Micro Rack, but AIC will also showcase our first OCP solution rack. In the rack zone, AIC will live use half of a 48U smart rack to present the Big Data running with Hadoop based on OpenStack platform, and the application of VSaaS (Video Surveillance As A Service). AIC is willing to provide a complete platform for cloud computing and data processes in the data center. In the meantime, AIC is also to demonstrate our own-developed rack management software system – AIC ARMOR. The system can automatically monitor and report all servers’ status in the racks, and to remote to process any abnormal issue. In a single user interface, AIC ARMOR would able to assign IP for all servers automatically without hesitating of assigning IP manually, based on the AIC RMC (Remote Management Controller), AIC ARMOR is easy to consolidate. Also a tool you must have when managing racks.

The special area you are going to miss is All-Flash-Array NVMe. AIC unveils the complete series of NVMe server systems, support most NVMe drive vendors in the market to provide a “highly dense and hybrid” storage server solution. In 1U and 2U form factor, but provide functions of high-speed, high-bandwidth, high-density, but low latency. Support 2.5” NVMe PCIe SSD, AIC’s All-Flash-Array NVMe series server systems providing the perfect server environment for running applications that require fast data delivery, such as video-on-demand broadcasting, hyper-scale computing, big data analytics, Hadoop, and VLDB.

Moreover, AIC is collaborating with strategic partners – Intel, and E8 Storage and Mellanox this year. In AIC 2017 Computex booth, to live demo E8’s high-performance and centralized NVMe storage solution, based on AIC’s platform architecture (HA202E-PH and Smart Rack), with Intel’s DC D3700 dual-port NVMe SSD series, and Mellanox’s unique high-speed switch.

In another area of the Rack Zone, AIC to demonstrate 2U 4-Node NVMe Hyper-Converged Storage Server – HP201-AD, to cooperates with GOC (Gemini Open Cloud Computing) to live demo its Hyper-Converged Cloud PaaS platform. Which relocates the traditional enterprise application to the cloud, starts and manages the multi-cloud service via GOC portal. Through GOC’s agile PaaS platform design and the turnkey solution, enterprises would able to improve the business efficiency and lower the IT operating costs.

There are also new High-Density and High-Availability storage server products in the booth. High-Density Storage Servers’ compact mechanical designing tool-less chassis will able to save maintenance staffs’ loading. All products with hot-swappable HDDs and fans, including smart fans management and low-power consumption system, will able to maintain machine at optimum status. High-Availability Storage Servers are the best solutions for enterprise demanding to multi-task processing and storage. With dual operation nodes that can be "active/active" operating modes, with 10 GbE, PCIe NTB or SAS communicate with each other instantly and support at any time. Every node supports up to two Intel® Xeon® Processors E5-2600 v4 Product Family, or Intel® Xeon® D-1500 Product Family. Equipped backup system and hot-swappable components, even in the event of failure or timing maintenance, can make the system downtime to a minimum, thereby increasing the overall output value. On the other hand, because the system itself has been equipped with backup function, more substantial savings in system management staff long redundant backup operations.

AIC features series of server boards, enclosures, and storage JBOD. In this year, AIC specially introduces the first JBOF – J2024-03 to the market. Supports 24 hot-swappable NVMe U.2 bays, and the performance is six times the traditional SATA SSD. AIC dedicates to innovation and high-quality, to fulfill the various demands of our global clients and partner.
