Viking Technology


The Viking Enterprise Solutions (VES) VSS2249R storage server offers 24 2.5” PCIe v4.0 NVMe drives (U.2) combined with two server modules. Each server has access to all 24 NVMe drives with dual port devices. The VSS2249R is a dense HA solution that provides the ultimate storage performance in a small package.

The enclosure contains two hotswappable server modules. Each of the server modules includes an AMD EPYC™ CPU with two x16 PCIe v4.0 and one OCPNIC 3.0 PCIe v4.0 add in card slots, and up to 8 DIMMs. The VSS2249R fits into an industry standard 19” wide by 1m deep rack. Its flexible configuration allows it to be deployed in a variety of applications.

Extremely fast 2U storage with 24 PCIe v4.0 NVMe drives and two servers supporting 96 PCIe lanes to the drives and 96 PCIe lanes to the network.

The VSS2249R alleviates job pipeline congestion, a common limitation caused by I/O bottlenecks in many high performance applications such as edge computing storage, analytics, Machine Learning, AI, OLTP transactional databases, high frequency trading, as well as modeling, simulation, scientific research, and other HPC use-cases.
