The new 1U all-flash NVMe system was developed in collaboration with Intel to deliver 1 petabyte scale storage that more than doubles the capacity per rack unit and is 40 percent more thermal efficient.

The ruler SSDs are designed for next-generation data center needs that will require more storage and efficient management on a massive scale.

Super Micro has more than 100 NVMe based platforms in its X11 server and storage portfolio, including the Super Micro BigTwin system that supports up to 24 NVMe drives in 2U as well as 24 memory modules per node.

The new SSD drives from Super Micro support both the ruler and U.2 form factors and the 1U system will support a half petabyte of NVMe storage capacity this year with a full petabyte early next year.
