Apex contains six hot-swap modules which minimize down-time through easy sparing. Instead of the entire server being the lowest unit for upgrade, with Apex each VPX-based module can be upgraded as technology or use needs change.
Performance enhancements, different memory sizes, and disk types can all be changed as the data center and workload needs evolve. For example, SAS-3 drives can be replaced with newer PCIe Gen 3 NVMe drives with an instant drive tray exchange. The system reconfigures on-the-fly. Of course, with Apex the industry’s fastest NVMe drives are standard. Hardware RAID is built into the Mass Storage module; the system I/O module uses software RAID.
All General Micro Systems products are proudly designed and manufactured in the U.S.A.
