Cepoint: DC-DC Battery Powered All-Flash NVMe NAS Server Series

September 20, 2022

Ideal for Cybersecurity Data or 4K/8K Video Intensive recording, streaming or storage applications, the Cepoint’s DC-DC battery powered All-Flash NVMe NAS Server series with FLASH FAST STORAGE devices now available in 1U to 4U rack mount with DC battery power supply options of 48V DC, 110V DC-240V DC.  

It is no coincidence that some of the largest power grid generation companies like GE, Siemens and ABB are fast adapting and implementing their Renewable Energy faster than current industry rate, all of them using Cepoint Networks Green Energy computing systems for these innovative solutions. While fossil fuel based energy is currently the most dominate energy resources for our planet, eventually global warming effects will continue to force many countries to rethink of their alternate energy solutions such as renewable energy. The US Department of Energy has been gradually trying to educate the industry about the benefits and advantages adapting renewable energy, however only few of industry large corporations are slowly implementing renewable energy concept.

Intel, Google, Facebook/Meta are quietly adapting green computing in their data centers but it will take time for entire industry to fully embrace the concept of renewable energy at their data centers. Cepoint Networks, however is not waiting to help in this innovation and technology disruption. Cepoint’s series of DC-battery powered servers and storage NAS are just helping IT data centers adapt to this new and future trend. Talking of future trend, industrial organizations operating or planning of driving some or most of their energy sources from Solar Grid will benefit tremendously utilizing IT servers equipped with DC battery power. This is definitely a game change in lowering energy cost and help reduce global warming.

Cepoint Networks 1U rackmount PCIe 4.0 Bus NVMe Flash NAS may look like a small size black pizza box but do not under estimate this small tiny DC battery powered Enterprise Flash Storage server solutions. What sets this system apart from all others?. It is designed to operate with DC or Battery power option making the unit ideal for grid less operation or industrial environment where renewable energy or low power source and reliability is essential.

HydraNAS is performance power packed with NVMe PCIe modules or M.2 or U.2 SSD with up to 256Gbps /channel that is 40 x faster than standard SATA I/O speed. NVMe PCIe 4.0 based storage solution is now the fastest way to transfer data directly from memory to processor. Since the storage server uses latest generations of Multicore CPU’s and GPU with massively parallel processing capacity, Cepoint’s NVME based storage server is capable of accelerating massive databases and large-scale VM (Virtual Machine) farms for greater performance and shared storage in demanding applications that performs slowly in previous storage technologies like serial Attached SCSI (SAS) or SATA.

NVMe PCIe is next-generation interface communication between the CPU processor and Flash storage hardware. Transfers data at up to 128 Gb/s and has 64K command queues or send 64K commands per queue. With over 5M IOPS (random read) at very low power, applications for AI (Artificial Intelligence) or BI (Business Intelligence) is made readily easy to implement.

HydraNAS PCIe NVMe Flash NAS storage solution is best for data Intensive applications ideal for real-time services, high performance computing, AI / BI, deep-learning machines, and 4K/8K/3D media streaming servers and workstations. The NVMe NAS are available in 1U, 2U, 3U and 4U Industrial rackmount form factors with capacities ranging from 8TB to 480TB. In removable hot-swap media carts.
