The eRacks/NAS4 is a great rackmount storage server solution for companies that want a robust, reliable, professional-grade rackmount NAS server with redundancy, while still in 1U of rackspace - and they may not need vast storage capacity, but still would like to have access to the same powerful features as found in our higher-end storage servers.
eRacks/NAS4 is our 1U 4-drive bay NAS rack-mount server, with enterprise-level features, power, and redundancy found in our larger NAS-series rack mount systems.
We have recently upgraded our eRacks/NAS4 options and choices to include the latest 18TB storage drives, to reach a total capacity of 72 Terabytes of raw storage with CMR/PMR drives, and up to 80TB with the latest 20TB SMR drives (by custom quote, typically for archival applications).
eRacks offers many green HDD options, including HGST enterprise-class, high-reliability, helium-filled "Green" drives, as well as the WD "Green" drives, which spin down when not in use. These and other "Green" drive options use less power while providing more data storage space. Choosing these drives make eRacks/NAS4 a truly a greener, eco-friendly solution.
Archival & Near-Line Storage
The WD, HGST, or Seagate 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 are more well-suited for Archival applications, or HDD-Based Near-Line Storage or Cold Storage. THese are available in the dropdowns - Note that up to 20TB WD SMR drives are now available by custom quote!
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.

For rackmount network storage / SDS (Software-defined-storage), we can install Ceph, DRBD, OpenStack Cinder, Gluster, Samba, DLNA, Amahi, OpenMediaVault, Rockstor, FreeNAS, Nexenta, CryptoNAS, OpenDedupe, OpenAttic, NFS, XFS, BTRFS, etc - you name it, we'll install it for you.
