Grande Vitesse Systems nomadic 1U 12xPro SSS

nomadic 1U 12xPro secure storage technical specifications

Total storage in 1U rack space:
3RAID combines Fibre, SAS, and iSCSI storage technologies with Fibre Channel Speed and data protection with iSCSI controller access to the same data over TC/IP network in a

For hard drive capacity measurements, 1GB = 1 billion bytes; actual formatted capacity is less by 5% based on OS. Maximum capacity of 12TB achieved through use of 12x100TB Nomadic 1U Drive Modules. 3.4GB/sec per controller Actual rates will vary based on host interface. Weight varies by configuration and manufacturing process. GVS custom configures each Nomadic 1U based on customer specification from block size. Each drive goes through an extensive burn-in period prior to shipment.
