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 8TB drive technology, eRacks/NAS6 storage server can now provide up to 48 Terabytes of raw storage space.
There is also room for an available DVD/BD/CD Optical drive.
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.
The 8TB drives are available in both HGST 8 Terabyte hard drives, and Seagate Archive SMR 8TB 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/NAS6 a truly a greener solution.
The 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 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.
