Hitachi Advanced Server DS120

Flexible Power for Solutions

High Density, High Performance

With support for two Intel Xeon Scalable processors in just 1U of rack space, the Hitachi Advanced Server DS120 delivers exceptional compute density. It provides flexible memory and storage options to meet the needs of converged and hyperconverged infrastructure solutions, as well as for dedicated application platforms such as internet of things (IoT) and data appliances.

The Intel Xeon Scalable processor family is optimized to address the growing demands on today’s IT infrastructure. The server provides 24 slots for high-speed DDR4 memory, allowing up to 3TB of memory per node (when 128GB DIMMs are used).

Flexible Storage Options

DS120 supports up to 12 hot-pluggable, front-side-accessible 2.5-inch serial attached SCSI (SAS) or serial-ATA (SATA) drives. Hard disk drive (HDD), solid-state drive (SSD) and NVMe options can be supported by the system. With these options, the server can be flexibly configured to address both I/O performance and capacity requirements for a wide range of applications and solutions.

I/O Expansion

A selection of low profile and mezzanine PCIe 3.0 expansion slots are available, allowing the configuration of I/O expansion and controller modules. This approach adds versatility, and enables DS120 to be optimized for many different solutions, applications and workloads.

Enterprise-Class Features

DS120 server provides the reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) features demanded by business-critical enterprise applications. The server’s modular design simplifies cable routing and reduces service time. Redundant, hot-swap drives and power supplies provide a resilient architecture for important applications, and dual-rotor hot-swap fans help ensure continuous operation.

Embedded Server Management

An integrated baseboard management controller allows DS120 to be managed remotely and independently. A dedicated interface facilitates secure remote access through a LAN connection and provides a powerful, easy-to-use web console interface for remote initialization, management and configuration.
