3U COTS COTS NVMe RAID Flash Storage Array

3U COTS COTS NVMe RAID Flash Storage Array
CRS-PCIeG3-3US-32-xx
Has 32 ioScale modules in four individually removable sleds

The Cheetah Flash Storage Array provides 153.6TB+ Flash storage using enterprise Flash from major PCIE manufacturers. The FSA cables to one to four host computers through PCIe x16 Gen3 connections operating at 128Gb/s bandwidth (or 40GBs total). The low-profile, half-length cable adapters support low latency and extreme bandwidth to the NVMe Flash Memory Cards. The small footprint, removable sleds and light weight allows easy one-person installation in data centers, airborne ISR platforms, mobile shelters and portable transit cases. The 3U x 18” x 3.4” memory sleds fit easily into an available roll-aboard style locking transportation case or standard data safe to protect your investment and your data in highly secure environments.

Features:

  • 3U High
  • Four removable canisters with eight flash memory cards each
  • Fully IPMI v2.0 compliant monitoring, control & alarming system
  • Two 1,200-watt rear removable, hot-swap supplies
  • Superior Cooling with four 80 x 80 x 38mm fans on the rear of the enclosure
