Hybrid HDD & SSD – 5,500 MB/sec. – 1,200,000 IOPS – Rugged 1U Tray.
FlashDisk RF-3U16 is a rugged version of the commercial FX-3U16 with the same performance levels and Fibre Channel, iSCSI and SAS host support. However, these “COTS Rugged” disk arrays are designed to MIL-STD 810E/833E to store and protect data in harsh operating environments: tolerating levels of dust, moisture, shock and vibration not possible with standard commercial units – at far less expense than fully rugged systems. It supports 16 SAS disks (HDDs, SEDs or SSDs) per shelf and provides up to 96 TB of storage in the base unit, expandable to 1,440 TB. The US Army approved these units for field use and has deployed them worldwide in HUMVEE communication trailers. The front door is crafted of 3/4-inch milled aluminum to provide rigidity, structural integrity and prevent flying-object hazards. It also contains a heavy-duty filter to trap dust particles and provide a moisture shield to protect internal components. The LCD front panel is easily viewed by field personnel, is EMI shielded, and uses heavy-duty “positive feel” pushbuttons. The door also features a dust and raindrop seal. Optionally, the US Army, Navy and Air Force mount the unit to a chassis using five bolts, secured in a triangulated pattern for strength, to a Rugged 1U Tray for land, sea and air operations.
