Intel's JBOD2000 is for Data Centre and Enterprise Storage

By - Source: Intel Newsroom | B 3 comments

Intel cites the JBOD2000 as an example of the company's continuing effort "to create and deliver innovative solutions to partners and customers".

Intel's Enterprise Platforms and Services Division (EPSD) has announced the somewhat awkwardly named JBOD2000 Storage System to "meet the need for expandable storage in the enterprise and data centres." The JBOD200 has a 2U form factor and supports up to 48 TB of storage capacity through 12 3.5" drives or 24 2.5" drives with options for single or multi-cable connectivity, redundant fans and power supply units.

The unit has 16 external 6 GB/s SAS ports and offers "seamless integration" with Intel Server Systems whereby pairing the unit with an Intel's RS25SB008 RAID controller and at least one Intel SSD will provide "additional performance benefits" via Intel's SSD Cache Technology. Additionally, this combination will also allow it to act as a virtual RBOD (RAID Bunch of Disks) or serve multiple servers with the onboard SAS switch.

For more information on the Intel JBOD2000 Storage System and other EPSD products, visit the unit's press release or the Intel Server Products website.

    awkwardly named JBOD2000

    What's awkward about it? Why are there so many "quoted words". And why have your news items descended to tabloid level language?

    Even for someone desensitised by motherboard naming conventions, JBOD2000 sounds like something from the Jersey Shore :p

    It is awkward because in enterprise hardware JBOD means "Just a Bunch Of Disks" and it is mostly used in cheap enclosures just to cram HDDs on. These doesn't have any processor or memory or RAID controller to aid the server on data handling.

    So while the JBOD2000 is in fact a JBOD enclosure, its weird why they came up with a name that has such a "dirt slang" on it...
