nomadic 2U enterprise secure storage technical specifications

Total storage in 2U rack space:
24.0TB-72.0TB RAID combines Fibre, SAS 6.0Gb/s and iSCSI storage technologies with 8x8GB/sec or 4x16GB/sec Fibre Channel Speed and data protection with iSCSI controller access to same data over TC/IP network in a
2U rack-optimized enclosure.
The innovative GVS-designed Nomadic 2U RAID architecture combines affordable, high-capacity SAS 6Gb/sec drive technology with a single to dual controller host channel interface for redundancy, fast,
reliable data access. Each GVS Drive Module uses
a dedicated 6.0Gb/s drive channel, maximizing
the 800MB/s Fibre Channel host connection.

For hard drive capacity measurements, 1GB = 1 billion bytes; actual formatted capacity less by 5% base on OS. Maximum capacity of 48TB achieved through use of 12x4TB Nomadic 2U 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 2U based on customer specification from block size. Each drive goes through an extensive burn-in period prior to shipment.
