Feb 29, 2016 - eRacks Systems Offers 600 Terabyte Data Capacity With New eRacks/NAS60 Data Storage Servers

Los Gatos, California – February 29, 2016eRacks Open Source Systems announced today the release of its new eRacks/NAS60 high-capacity data storage servers with storage capacity of up to 600 Terabytes of raw storage space. The California based firm is a major manufacturer and provider of Open Source based rackmount high-capacity and Petascale data storage servers for network attached storage as well as cloud-based applications.

The new eRacks/NAS60 is a 4U rackmount unit that comes with 60 top-loading drawer-style drive bays. eRacks Systems is offering these units to come with combinations of 6, 8, and 10 Terabyte capacity hard drives, allowing for a total raw data storage space of up to 600 Terabytes.

Customers of eRacks Systems can order eRacks/NAS60 to be configured with up to sixty 10-Terabyte HGST drives bringing the capacity of the unit to 600 Terabytes. Also combinations of lower capacity hard drives are possible for lower space requirements and applications. The chassis, eRacks/4U-60RHD, is 26,5 inches deep and holds 60 3.5 inch drives bays. The unit is controlled by two Intel Xeon E5-2609 v3 processors and two 32GB DDR4 for a total of 64GB of RAM.

eRacks/NAS60 is offered with lower capacity hard drives to offer more affordable pricing options to eRacks Systems customers. “The 8-Terabyte drives are the 'Sweet spot' yielding 480 Terabytes of raw storage - The 10 Terabyte hard drives may be considerably more expensive than lower capacity drives,” Says eRacks Systems’ CTO and founder Joseph Wolff, “They may not be the ‘sweet-spot’ of cost per Terabyte, but for those users who need every available Terabyte these drives are certainly an option.”

eRacks Systems has always been committed to providing high-capacity, cloud-ready storage servers based on Open Source operating systems. Company’s customers receive their purchased units completely pre-loaded and pre-installed with their choices of open source operating system and software, ready to go.
