GIGABYTE is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, 20 of which were spent building servers, storage, and networking equipment for the world's biggest IT brands. With dedication for the entire server stack, we are now building on our technological know-how to provide storage devices made with the highest quality standards. GIGABYTE offers high-density, network-attached storage, and is always keen on meeting the customers' needs while keeping an eye on cost.
GIGABYTE's storage solutions address a wide variety of needs, from low-cost cold storage with thin provisioning to direct attached storage for high-volume video editing needs. Drive density and reliability are always our prime directives to enable TCO-suppressing solutions for data center and workstation needs.
The cold storage server is designed to store data that will be rarely, if ever, accessed. This type of usage doesn't require much computing and networking power to process stored data, and therefore cold storage can be optimized for storage density, low cost, and durability. It is a perfect solution with an ideal TCO for applications such as image and video banks, data archiving, video surveillance, and broadcasting. Built by Intel Xeon D-1541, GIGABYTE D120-C20 is designed for high-density and scale-out server infrastructures and focuses on high power efficiency while maintaining data center–grade features, such as large storage and memory platforms. Through this density and computing power, D120-C20 can lower the TCO of enterprise and public clouds, storage, and network applications.10 gigabit fiber connectivity
With two 10 GbE SFP+ fiber ports, two GbE ports, and a separate management traffic port, D120-C20 has a network platform designed to fit into a large range of possible network topologies.DDR4 memory support
D120-C20 supports the DDR4 memory technology. Compared to DDR3, the new generation increases bandwidth performance by 50 percent, and lowers power consumption 35 percent at 2DPC or up to 50 percent at 3DPC.
Equipped with an onboard ASPEED AST2400* controller, D120-C20 provides comprehensive remote system monitoring with a whole set of management features, such as remote boot and reset, remote image mounting, full control over network, and complete system monitoring and diagnostics.Only the best components
Industry-leading IR digital PWM and IR PowIRstage* IC controllers ensure D120-C20's CPU and memory power delivery. These components guarantee a super-stable operating environment and allow the processors and the memory to deliver maximum performance.
The D120-C20 is a low-cost, high-density storage solution that can provide a low-maintenance solution for thin provisioning and general network attached storage. Thanks to the power of the onboard Intel® Xeon® processor D-series, the D120-C20 is well equipped to handle more complex tasks in a virtualized environment. The D120-C20 offers a unique 16-disk solution with easy-swap drives to deliver immense storage density per U, only limited by available drive capacity. Thanks to integrated management and error and consistency checking, the D120-C20 has high reliability and availability of data. These characteristics alleviate a lot of budgetary pressure normally generated by proprietary storage solutions by providing a cost-effective cold storage solution and relieving your staff to allow you to adequately budget for your IT needs.White paper
