So SSDs may be out of your price range but you still want your storage arrays to be energy efficient, right? Supermicro has the 1U, 2U, 3U or 4U chassis for you.
The company has outfitted its new barest of bones storage chassis with 93 percent efficient, 1200-watt redundant power supplies, qualifying it for 80 Plus Gold. I’d be remiss if I didn’t give a green nod to their “100% recyclable, palletized packaging.”
More details? Sure thing!
