Any hints on choosing the hardware for a data node?

Any hints on choosing the hardware for a data node?

Explorer

Hi,

Appreciate if you could share your success stories on choosing the right hardware model for a data node.

We're looking for a 2U servers to be used as data nodes (12 JBOD SATA drives 2/4/6TB each). Our previous experience with Lenovo x3650 M5 was pretty bad (high ratio of SATA drives failures + LSI SAS3008 SATA controller seems to be "not smart" enough to identify disk failure meaning no alerts), hence we're looking for a different model/brand.

Thanks.
