eRacks/NAS6 is a 2U medium-capacity storage server with six 3.5" hot-swap drive bays, available in either a 3x2 or 2x3 configuration. 

With the latest 18TB drive technology, eRacks/NAS6 storage server can now provide up to 108 Terabytes of raw storage space (even more with SMR drives - ask us for a custom quote today!).

There is also room for an available DVD/BD/CD Optical drive.


The HGST or Seagate drives are enterprise-class, high-reliability, helium-filled "Green" drives, which use less power while providing more data storage space.  Choosing these drives make eRacks/NAS6 a truly a greener solution.

The largest 16TB and 18TB drives are available in the top brands (Seagate, WD, HGST, Toshiba) - and are also available across our entire line of storage servers.


The Seagate, WD, 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 are more well-suited for Archival applications, or Near-Line Storage or Cold Storage.   We'll be happy to give you a custom quote with these drives - contact us today and tell us your unique needs!


eRacks/NAS6 is delivered pre-configured with the latest open source operating system and software per your requirements, including, but not limited to, Ceph, LizardFS, Open Stack.Cloudstack, Open Nebula, Samba, or your choice of any other open-source packages you need - just put your requirements in the "Notes" field when you place your order or request a quote. 


For virtualization, we can install OpenStack, CloudStack, our own light weight eVirt™ (aka QuickStack)  virtualization, or your choice.


For network storage / SDS (Software-defined-storage), we can install Ceph, DRBD, Samba, DLNA, NFS, etc - you name it, we'll install it for you.
