For hard drive capacity measurements, 1GB = 1 billion bytes; actual formatted capacity less by 5% base on OS. Maximum capacity of 18TB achieved through use of 18x1TB 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.
