Intel’s 24-Core, 14-Drive Modular Server Reviewed
By

The MFSYS25 chassis comes with a built-in SAN that can hold up to 14 hot-swappable SAS drives. Intel sent us enough drives to fully populate the chassis’ storage bay, comprising 14 Seagate Savvio 10K.2 drives. The 2.5" Savvio 10K.2 has a capacity of 73 GB and is 70% smaller than the larger 3.5" drives and uses less power than its larger siblings. Its compact size also adds more flexibility for configuring different RAID levels 0 to 60.

All together, 952 GB of space are available for configuring virtual drives for the compute modules used in the chassis. Looking to the future, Intel can be expected to replace these drives with larger capacity products, therefore increasing overall storage significantly.

Manufacturer specs for the Seagae Savvio SAS drives.  The drives we got were of the 73GB variety.  Check with Intel for other model compatibility.  Manufacturer specs for the Seagae Savvio SAS drives. The drives we got were of the 73GB variety. Check with Intel for other model compatibility.

Adding the 2.5 inch drives to the MFSYS25 was quick and easy.Adding the 2.5 inch drives to the MFSYS25 was quick and easy.
