The weakness for spindle HDD is data transfer speed and IOPS (IO per second), so that SSD material was used in storage industry. But SSD interface and bus are still kept at SAS III or SATA III which are unable to the benefit of SSD at high IOPS and high throughput. To resolve the bottleneck of SSD transmission, storage industry proposed NVMe specifications as using PCIe bus as transmission bus for SSD.

In the market, maximum 2.5” NVMe drives support in 1U server is up to 10pcs. ASR-3100 has a unique design for 2nd row rotated HDD cage to support up 16pcs NVMe SSD. So that ASR-3100 is able to offer up to 6 million IOPS(4KB read) which is at least 30% better than existing similar product in the market.

Besides the very high IOPS support of 16pcs NVMe SSD , the other significant feature is that it supports two internal SATA M.2 slot. Users can install the operating system in M.2 device instead of 2.5” SSD/HDD to keep all 16 2.5 " HDD tray are capable to use as storage space. Because there are two M.2 slots, so users can do OS mirror on dual M.2 SATA devices. If the primary operating system is damaged accidently, the other mirrored operating system can seamlessly takes over system operating. In addition, ASR-3100 is also equipped 1100W 1+1 redundant power supply. If one power supply single unit is mal-function, user can hot-swappable it immediate w/o shutting down to replace it. Both OS mirror and redundant power supply design is to prevent from system crashed by single point. Moreover, power supply of ASR-3100 is 80 Plus Platinum level certification, so it can make the benefit for energy saving and Carbon Reduction. To meet diversified high networking bandwidth and interface, ASR-3100 supports two PCIe add-in card in a 1U architecture, so users can install appropriate networking add-on cards.
