CIB4270 Storage Cluster Server
Cost effective, high available and high capacity storage servers
Zstor CIB4270 cluster in a box front 45 3

The Zstor CIB4270 Storage Server Series are INTEL® Grantley and Haswell platform systems in 4U height with two compute nodes of CiB (Cluster-in-a-box) capability that enables transparent failover between two nodes. CIB4270 systems offer excellent reliabilty and high density and are ideal choices of storage servers for Microsoft Storages Spaces or CiB solutions with Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) over Converged Ethernet (RoCE)

High Performance
The latest INTEL® E5-2600 v4 series processor platform offers by INTEL® 14nm process technology a 50% smaller package and 47% faster performance. The averaged generational performance gain across key industry-standard workloads and applications is 27%. This gives better virtualizations efficiency, smarter resource orchestration and more enhanced protection for systems and data.

Flexible Network Configuration including Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA)
By offering a variety of network choices through OCP NICs (Network Interface Controller) mezzanine card options, ranging from 1G Ethernet to 10G Ethernet (SFP+ or 10base-T) the high speed performance and IO flexibility are realized. Optional PCIe Mellanox NICs with RDMA capabilities offers a technology that allows you to bypass OS and directly access the memory from another storage server node with less CPU load, lower latency and higher throughput.

Applications Failure-free Operation Support
The adoption of power redundancy and hot-swappable node design enables more reliability during operation. The hot-swappable feature on all serviceable parts makes maintenance even easier.
