The Cisco NC55-SC is a high-performance, high-capacity network storage array that offers superior performance for storing and protecting mission-critical data. With up to 900 TB of capacity and with up to 1.2 million IOPS, this system is designed for data centers with large workloads. It offers more than just storage capacity; it features powerful features that make it ideal for use in virtualized environments and cloud infrastructure. The Cisco NC55-SC features 8GB of DDR4 RAM, allowing it to quickly access data that has been stored on its high-performance media drives. Additionally, the unit includes four PCIe Gen3 slots, which allow additional hardware or software components to be added to the system. The system also includes four hot-swappable SAS expansion connections that can be used to quickly add additional storage or other peripherals. The array contains sixteen 2.5-inch media drives which can store up to 900TB of raw capacity. The media drives feature 512 bytes of NAND Flash MLC chips, offering faster read/write speeds and longer life compared to traditional HDD drives. Additionally, the drives come in a wide range of capacities – from 800GB to 8TB – allowing for customized storage solutions for specific applications. The system also supports RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, and 50 with an embedded RAID controller that can support up to eight arrays as well as hot swap capabilities and auto volume management functions. This ensures that the data stored on the system is protected and allows for easy management of data volumes across multiple arrays. Finally, the Cisco NC55-SC includes enterprise-level Fibre Channel and iSCSI host buses that are supported by advanced protocols including FCoE, DCB/PFC, iSER, and iSCSI vCNA. Together with the advanced networking features such as VXLAN and MPLS, this allows data centers to easily create virtual SAN networks and extend their storage capacity across multiple hosts without having to deploy dedicated SAN fabric devices.
