The eRacks/NAS8 is a 2U large capacity storage server with eight 3.5" hot-swap drive bays. With the latest 18TB drive technology eRacks/NAS8 storage server can now provide up to 144 Terabytes of raw storage space. Even more with SMR drives - ask us for a quote today!
As always, the unit comes pre-installed with your choice of open source operating system and software. There is still room for an available DVD/BD/CD Optical drive, and a 3U chassis version with vertical drive bays.
The Seagate, WD, and HGST 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/NAS8 a truly a greener solution.
The Seagate or HGST Archive SMR/PMR (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.
eRacks/NAS8 is delivered pre-configured with the latest open source operating system and software per your requirements, including, but not limited to, Ceph, LizardFS, OpenStack. 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 lightweight eVirt™ 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.
