Viking Technology


The Viking Enterprise Solutions (VES) NDS-1160 is a flexible platform supporting single or dual servers with industry standard storage devices ranging from 3.5” HDD to 2.5” SATA/SAS SSD and U2 2.5” PCIe NVMe. The server boards are dual socket Intel Xeon™ class Haswell or Broadwell (E5-2600 V3/V4) designs supporting up to 2TB of system memory configuration and 145W processors. The drive interface is defined by custom expansion card or add-on standard host bus adapters featuring either SAS IO controllers or PCIe retimers. Each server board also supports up to 2 standard PCIe add-on cards and one OCP format.

The system can be deployed in various configurations such as single or dual server computer node or storage servers attached with SATA, SAS or NVMe storage options. The customer will benefit from maintaining common FRUs such as server boards, power supplies, fans and drive carriers for the different configurations all in a small 1U package. The system is front serviceable and toolless features reducing service time.



  • 1U-12 LFF/24 SFF Bay, Single/Dual Node Flexible Configuration Storage Server
  • Single/Dual Servers: Each server can be independently serviced without taking the node completely off-line
  • Drive Bays: In a single server configuration, 12 drive bays are available. For dual server configuration, 8 drive bays available. Each drive bay can accommodate 1 LFF or 2 SFF drives
  • Serviceability: Front service off all FRU. Toolless/carrier less drive install and removal
