The eRacks/NAS8 is a 2U large capacity storage server with eight 3.5" hot-swap drive bays.  With quote the latest 16TB drive technology eRacks/NAS8 storage server can now provide up to 128 Terabytes of raw storage space.

There is still room for an available DVD/BD/CD Optical drive, and a 3U chassis version with vertical drive bays.


eRacks/NAS8 is delivered pre-configured with the latest open source operating system and software per your requirements, including, but not limited to, Ceph, LizardFSOpenStack. 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.


The 14TB drives are available in both HGST 14 Terabyte hard drives, and Seagate 14TB Drives - also available across our entire line of storage servers.


The 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.  



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 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.
