eRacks Systems, the nation’s leading solution provider dedicated to Open Source, announced today that they have released a new line of Petabyte-class servers, the NAS72. The NAS72 comes complete with 4U of Rackspace, and is equipped with advanced green drives that consume 23% less power than traditional drives.
eRacks’ new NAS72 storage server solution features unparalleled economy of space, with 72 drive bays that can be configured to many different custom setups housed in a special chassis that takes up just 4U of Rackspace. Each of the bays in the NAS 72 is equipped with specially designed “green” drives noted for their energy efficiency. Each 6TB HGTS helium filled drive consumes 23% less power than traditional 4TB drives. This amounts to roughly half the energy usage per terabyte, making the massive storage capacity of 432TB both practical and affordable for nearly any server setup.
eRacks is renowned in the industry for their dedication to and expertise with the Open Source movement, with many of their products coming pre-installed and pre-configured with open source software like OpenStack, CloudStack and Eucalyptus, among others. The new NAS72 cloud storage server solution is no different, and can be pre-configured with OpenStack for truly superior results.
"With the confluence of the highest storage density available, 'Green' miserly power usage, and sheer storage size, the eRacks/NAS72 brings an unprecedented level of utility to the cloud marketplace,” said Joe Wolff, CTO and Founder of eRacks. “When combined with our available OpenStack pre-installation/pre-configuration services, it's a truly unbeatable Enterprise-class turnkey Petascale private cloud."
