ion C2 StorageServer

ION C2 StorageServer In 1998, ION became the first company in the world to qualify as an Intel Authorized Solution Provider, the program now known as Intel Technology Provide, Platinum Member. The ion C2 StorageServer modular storage server builds on more than 2 decades of custom server and storage expertise. The C2 StorageServer can scale up to almost 2 Petabytes with a full range of options for RAID level, SSD caching, all-SSD shelves and spares. The C2 StorageServer supports from (10) to (480) drives, in 4 to 42 rack units.

The C2 StorageServer is designed around ION's C2 Server, using Intel® server building blocks for reliability, availability, serviceability and manageability. The C2 StorageServer delivers up to 1920TB in a single rack cabinet with every drive in an individual, front accessible hot-swap tray for the simplest maintenance. The ION Server blog describes the C2 StorageServer in more detail as well as providing more insight into this modular strategy for scalable storage servers.

In addition to a variety of I/O options, the C2 StorageServer runs any standard server operating system, including Linux®, Windows® Server, Open-E DSS V7 for a full-featured SAN & NAS Appliance and Open-E JovianDSS, based on ZFS.
