High Performance Enterprise Class Storage Using NVMe
The Viking Enterprise Solutions (VES) NSS2560 storage server offers fifty-six 2.5” NVMe drives (U.2) combined with two server modules. Each server has access to all fifty-six NVMe drives with dual port devices. The NSS2560 is a dense HA solution that provides a tremendous amount of storage in a small package.

The enclosure contains two hotswappable server modules. Each of the servers is a dual socket Skylake server with one x16 PCIe add in card slots, and up to 8 DIMMs per CPU. The NSS2560 fits into an industry standard 19” wide by 1.2m deep rack. Its flexible configuration allows it to be deployed in a variety of applications.

Extremely dense 2U package with 56 NVMe drives and two servers.
