Supermicro Introduces EDSFF Appliances Discussion

Recommended Posts

The EDSFF (Enterprise and Datacenter Storage Form Factor) is worth a brief look at all on its own. It is a brand-new specification, so modern that it was still being revised just two months ago. Its main reason for existing is that current form factors are both problematic for server teams to maintain and shaped in such a way that they often have to devote additional volume to avoid overheating. The EDSFF spec defines a high-capacity, hot-pluggable SSD that can fit vertically in 1U, works well in existing server and storage infrastructure and meets enterprise performance needs. By fitting vertically in 1U racks, the new drives will have significantly improved cooling characteristics and also make it easier to design racks to allow drives to be hot-swapped, reducing maintenance time and costs.
