The T5224DN is a 2U rack-mount dual-controller 24 PCIe/NVMe SSD All-Flash Array ideally designed for Software Defined Storage (SDS) usage.
The SDS appliances that are built from T5224DN are best suited for high-performance applications, which include Big Data analytics, and enterprise data applications. The controllers are based on Intel’s recently announced Xeon® Scalable® processors (aka Skylake-SP). Each controller supports up to two processors with 16 DDR4 DIMMs of main memory. There is extensive I/O provided in and out of the box thru 48 PCIe Gen3 lanes that can be flexibly carved out into a variety of PCIe slot options.
The controller provides on-board networking in the form of four 10GbE ports that can be configured as a mix of SFP+ and BASE-T. In addition, there is a dedicated 1GbE management port. Optionally, each controller can support up to one processor SKU that has the Intel OmniPath® 100Gb port embedded in it. Other external ports available at the rear are two USB3.0, one VGA and one RS-232. Each controller provides two PCIe M.2 and two SATA M.2 module sockets offering high performance boot options for the OS as well as for storing logs.
TPM2.0 is supported via a pluggable module.
