The eRacks/NAS36 is a 4U-height rackmount Cloud / NAS / Storage server with a single backplane. The RAID controller handles up to 36 drives. The system is 4U in height and contains up to 24 hotswap SATA3/SAS2 drives in front, and 12 more in the rear.
This yields a nice, compact server that's miserly on the rack U's while big on storage - filled with the best-value 3TB drives, it's 108TB for well under $15,000, when configured. With 8TB drives, it maxes out fully configured at 288TB, still for well under $25,000.
With the 6TB, 8TB, (& soon 10TB) enterprise-class Helium-filled drives from HGST, it saves energy too - and is a truly petascale solution in only 4U of rackspace.
With the seagate Archive 8TB SMR drives, it is a truly miserly $cost/petabyte!
This rounds out eRacks' line of rackmount multi-drive storage servers and NAS solutions, nicely filling the gap between the 24-drive eRacks/NAS24 and the all-front-loading 50-drive eRacks/NAS50, eRacks' flagship storage server.
The eRacks/NAS36 is available with cloud software such as OpenStack, Ceph, and other OSS cloud software, such as Eucaluyptus or CloudStack, as well as best-of-breed Open Source software for BigData /
Cloud storage, NAS, and networking – including Hadoop, MooseFS, CIFS, LizardFS, GlusterFS, Ceph, etc – and eRacks is a partner with LizardFS and MooseFS.org.
We will also pre-install any open source NAS software, such as FreeNAS, OpenFIler, NAS4Free and OpenMediaVault, among others - and administrative dashboards and web GUIs are offered on most of these software choices.
In addition, our policy is to install any Linux/BSD distro or Open Source software on request - simply enter it the "Notes" filed on the config tab, or contact us today at email@example.com to see how we can meet your needs.
