The 2xOpenU Flash Storage Expansion (OCP-FSA) provides up to 212TB of direct attached Flash storage through up to sixty-three Flash Memory add-in boards in x8 Gen3 slots. The 2xOU FSA cables to one to three host computers through PCIe x16 Gen3 connections operating at 128Gb/s bandwidth. The low-profile, half-length host cable adapters support low latency and extreme bandwidth to the Flash Memory.
