The eRacks/NAS12 is a great mid-size data storage server solution for small-to-medium size companies (the SMB mnarket) that may require larger amounts of disk space, but do not need all the high-end power and cloud capabilities that come with our larger storage servers.
The eRacks/NAS12 Network Attached Storage (NAS) rackmount server requires only 2U on the datacenter rack, and has 12 hot-swap drive bays. With eRacks Systems' partnership with WD (and HGST), and the latest 18 Terabyte hard drives, the unit now can store up to 216 Terabytes of networked raw storage space.
The eRacks/NAS12 comes standard with Redundant High-efficiency Power Supplies. These hot-swappable redundant PSUs mean that if one fails it can be replaces with no down-time while the other one powers the system.
Ready to go!
As always, your server purchased from eRacks Systems will come pre-installed and ready-to-use, with your choice of open source operating system and software. Customers can have other motherboard configurations as well. Please contact us for details.
THe top hard drive brands (HGST, Seagate, WD) offer enterprise-class, high-reliability, helium-filled "Green" drives, which use less power, while providing more data storage space. Choosing these drives make the eRacks/NAS12 a truly greener eco-friendly solution. WD Green drives are also available as well!
Archival or Near-line storage
The Seagate or HGST Archive SMR (Shingled Magnetic Recording) drives are for archival applications which have a typical usage profile of writing mostly new data (or journal-style data "At the end"), rather than re-writing existing data - hence the choice of these drives is more well-suited for Archival applications, or Near-Line Storage or Cold Storage.
As always, the unit comes pre-installed with your choice of open source operating system and software, and pre-configured to your needs and instructions - simply put any special provisioning or partition requests in the "notes" field when you place your order or request a quote.
