The board provides four internal SATA connectors and one IDE connector with room for up to four drives to be housed together.


Two external eSATA devices can be connected thanks to the integrated Silicone Image 3132 controller. An Intel 82573 Gigabit Ethernet controller provides the network interface and up to 2GB of memory can be added to the single DDR2 DIMM slot.

    Thanks! Now all we need to know is the price.

  2. Christoph says:

    That server looks exactly like the Fujitsu Siemens one.

  3. Hi Ivan Y and Christoph,
    The price should be announced shortly and yes, it does look like the Fujitsu Siemens unit.

  4. ben says:

    FYI, the Intel SS4200 _is_ the Fujitsu Siemens unit – it’s made by Intel.

  5. Hi ben,
    Thanks for the info. I wonder if Intel will let other company’s release hardware using this design?

  6. John says:

    Will this be available soon? This post is old and I still can’t find where I can buy one.
    Also, anyone have any details on the EMC software load out intel is offering as the -E option?

  7. Hi John,
    More info on this unit is available in this post. As for the EMC software, no more information is available at present.

  8. JD says:

    Price appears to start at 500 US. Not sure what you get for that price … meaning how much base storage will be included. With four SATA drives internal – and the option for external connections via eSATA and USB – it should be an interesting product.

  9. Hi JD,
    Yes, I can’t wait for this to be released. More info thats related to this product can be found here: Intel Announces SS2400 Release Date.
