Are you ready to compete in the Big Data arena by making the leap into enterprise-class server storage architecture?
The HPE Apollo 4200 Gen9 Server offers revolutionary storage density in a 2U form factor, with one of the highest storage capacities in any 2U server. When you are running object storage, Hadoop®, content delivery, or other data-intensive workloads on general purpose servers, the HPE Apollo 4200 allows you to save valuable data center space through its unique density optimized 2U form factor which holds up to 28 Large Form Factor (LFF) or 54 Small Form Factor (SFF) hot-plug drives.
If you want to grow your Big Data solutions with infrastructure that is ready to scale, but prefer the familiarity of 2U hardware, the HPE Apollo 4200 Gen9 Server, with up to 224 TB per server, is the ideal enterprise bridge to purpose-built, density optimized infrastructure. And there are no special racks required as it fits easily into standard racks with a depth of 32-inches per server.
Market-leading Storage Capacity in a 2U Form Factor
The HPE Apollo 4200 Gen9 Server offers market-leading storage capacity among 2U storage servers, supporting up to 28 Large Form Factor (LFF) hot-plug drives or 54 Small Form Factor (SFF) hot-plug drives.
Object storage customers looking for a low cost-per-Gigabyte solution, the LFF model fits up to 224 TB of storage using 8 TB drives. This means that a 42U rack of HPE Apollo 4200 Gen9 Servers can fit over 4.4 PB! For higher storage capacities consider the HPE Apollo 4510 Chassis.
With high performance Hadoop® based workloads, the HPE Apollo 4200 Gen9 Server can support up to 54 SAS or solid state disks (SSD) SFF drives with 12 Gb/s throughput and 15K revolutions per minute.
No special racks required, it is designed to accommodate hundreds of terabytes per server, but fits right into most pre-existing racks.
Right Balance of Performance and Cost-efficiency for Data-intensive Applications
The HPE Apollo 4200 Gen9 Server is a perfect match for parallel processing applications like Hadoop®, with up to two Intel® Xeon® E5-2600v3 or E5-2600v4 processors per server that can reach up to 44 cores.
Object stores needing fast performance with small objects, or in-memory data processing for analytics software, the HPE Apollo 4200 Gen9 Server offers up to 1024 GB of DDR4 memory (16 DIMM slots).
Embedded 2x1GbE, HPE FlexibleLOM expansion slot, and up to five (5) low profile PCIe slots to give flexibility for future I/O upgrades, so that you can adapt your networking bandwidth as your application throughput demands evolve.
Embedded HPE Smart Array P840ar Controller with expanders supports up to 54 drives with one controller. The chassis can support up to three controllers providing point-to-point connectivity to SSDs to reduce latency.
Familiar Form and Management of a 2U Server, but with Enterpriseclass Storage Capacity
The HPE Apollo 4200 Gen9 Server has a standard rack depth (32-inches), so you can easily integrate this highly dense storage server into your existing architecture.
HPE Integrated Lights-Out 4 (iLO4) significantly simplifies server monitoring, manages fault tolerance, and provides pre-failure warnings for drives.
Single hot-plug drives for easy swapping, additions and subtractions.
Optionally install up to 10 fans for increased redundancy and fault tolerance.
