Chenbro has announced that they are adding the RB238G13-U04 Hybrid Storage System to their NVMe Server line-up. This new 2U server model under the Chenbro barebone servers category is an addition to the previously released RB238G13-U08.
It features a dual-socket Intel Xeon scalable processor server board and is configured as a 24-bay hot-swappable hybrid flash array solution, except that it has four NVMe drives instead of the eight NVMe drives of its sibling. Just like the RB238G13-U08, the RB238G13-U04 also complies with Apache Pass, Intel VROC, and Redfish.
The RB238G13 series was designed for clients who want to improve I/O storage latency significantly but do not need the full speed advantages of the more costly All-Flash-Array systems. Leveraging the capacity of the 20 x SAS/SATA drives, the RB238G13 series is suitable for databases, file servers, and container hosts.
Hybrid flash arrays provide an excellent overall balance between cost, capacity, and performance, allowing enterprises to efficiently deal with larger, more complex business-critical workloads.
Dual Intel Xeon Scalable Server Board
Pre-installed with a dual-socket Intel Xeon Scalable processor server board, the RB238G13-U04 supports 16 x DDR4 memory. Four HH/HL card [1 x *8 and 3 x *16] upgrade options are available for internal AIB expansion. The barebones design includes optimised cable routing, plus 16K RPM cooling fans that can be hot-swapped. Excellent network connectivity is provided through 2 x 10GbE LAN.
The RB238G13 series is the right solution for customers looking for an alternative to All-Flash-Array solutions like the Chenbro 1U NVMe server focusing on pure I/O performance.
As with other Chenbro chassis, the RB238G13-U04 barebone is available for branding customisation. The server case can be modified to meet a customer's needs, including personalised silkscreens, logo plates, and tailor-made bezels to create a Data Centre Rackmount in the customer's brand image. Thanks to an agile organisation, Chenbro's server customisation services can support requests from System Integrators and MSP's for their exclusive clients requiring select quantities.

Building on its 37 years of Taiwan manufacturing excellence, Chenbro assures a quality product manufactured with a sturdy frame and no sharp edges to ensure the well-being of assembly teams and system integrators, rack and stack service providers. The RB238G13-U04 barebone server employs a tool-less design for upgrades and maintenance, including storage, HDD trays, system fans, and PCI-Express riser brackets.
