Netstor NS388P: The turbo for high-performance data centers
Netstor NS388P: The turbo for high-performance data centers with 2x 128 Gbps

Netstor NS388P JBOF (Just a Bunch of Flash) enclosure with 24 NVMe bays

Netstor's JBOF NS388P offers space for 24 U.2 NVMe drives. It works extremely fast in combination with the PCIe host controller NP980A: 128 Gbps reaches the dynamic duo. And up to two of these host cards can be installed in one server, which even allows a data rate of 256 Gbps.

With ultra-fast large flash memory capacity in a high-density 2U form factor, enormous throughput and connectivity to support multiple host servers, the new Netstor NVMe JBOF platform is the best solution for all mission-critical server storage applications.

  • The latest Netstor PCI Express and NVM Express technology enables the central processing unit to avoid waiting for the hot data, allowing for better utilization of the computing power via the more consistent ultra high data bandwidth. As compared with conventional ones, the Netstor JBOF has significantly increased throughput and reduced latencies that lead to the better scalability and the lower total cost of ownership.

  • Presently hot data on the server is business-critical information that needs to be accessed very quickly and frequently and is used for quick decision making; in light of this situation, the hot data ought to be stored on the fastest NVMe flash storage like Netstor NS388P to achieve the immediate hot data for the present-day VDI and HPC applications.

  • The JBOF unit is created with dual hot-swappable PCIe switch boards supporting high redundancy, and is also equipped with dual hot-swappable 800W 80 PLUS Titanium high-efficiency redundant power supplies, making all the major components within the enclosure be with redundant in support of high security and server storage combination
    running continuously with zero system downtime.

  • The 2U 24-bay NVMe JBOF NS388P storage is considerately designed to support both Base Mode and Virtual Switch Mode to provide users multiple ways to build the systems with the blazing-fast NVMe flash storage: Base Mode allows IT administrators to have two servers access the same Netstor JBOF storage simultaneously by the ultra lightning-fast connection, or simply connect the JBOF storage to single host server for operation while Virtual Switch Mode lets four or up to eight servers access the same Netstor JBOF at the same time for any application and production.

  • NS388P provides complete management through CLI for the users. Only via simple command, status of PSU, fan, and temperature can be obtained effortlessly; U.2 NVMe SSDs’ state info within the enclosure can be reached, and Base mode and Virtual Switch mode are able to be selected. Additionally, the Netstor 2U NVMe JBOF storage has been considerately designed with a front intuitive LCD control panel to let administrator access storage components’ info directly and instantly without the requirement to use GUI software at the server side.

  • Equipped with the latest Microsemi PM8535, 8 GT/s 80-Lanes PFX PCIe Gen3 switch, each U.2 NVMe SSD slot port within the NS388P enclosure has the capability for supporting U.2 PCIe NVMe 2.5” SSD hot-plug function.
