Storage Rack with Redundant or Standard Power Supply

Overview

The Addonics family of Storage Rack is a 4U rack mount storage chassis designed to fit onto industrial standard computer rack. Designed to provide tremendous configuration flexibility, the Storage Rack is an ideal platform for creating a custom storage solution with multi-terabytes capability for video storage or editing, data archiving, uninterruptible storage, storage farm or any application that requires high performance or high storage capacity or both. Unlike many of the expensive proprietary storage solution in the market, the Storage Rack offer similar performance and capability at much lower cost per GB storage. In addition, the the Storage Rack can also be easily reconfigured, modified or upgraded at any time to meet your new application need without investing into new storage devices or new storage box.

The Storage Rack is constructed with heavy gauge sheet metal with dual 4" high CFM cooling fan to ensure efficient cooling. Also included is a built-in thermal management card that provides continuous temperature monitoring and over-temperature alarm as well as controlling the speed of cooling fan. Optional redundant power supply is also available for mission critical applications.

Rooms for multi-terabyte storage

Both Storage Rack and the Storage Rack DA comes with 9 standard 5 1/4" drive bays in the front. Both Storage Racks can start with as little as one drive and expand to as many as 9 standard height optical devices or 9 3.5" hard drives. When combined with the Addonics optional 3.5" Disk Array or 2.5" Disk Array, up to 15 3.5" hard drives or 36 2.5" hard drives can be installed inside this Storage Rack. That is 22.5 terabytes of storage using the largest 1.5 TB 3.5" hard drive or almost 18 terabytes of storage using the largest 500 GB 2.5" hard drive in just one Storage Rack! The Storage Rack DA also provides additional space for mounting a Disk Array 5SA on the back to increase the total installable 3.5" SATA hard drives up to 20 units. That is a whopping 30 terabytes of storage in a 4 U rack using today's largest1.5 TB hard drive! You can also mix and match optical drives, 3.5" and 2.5" hard drive with our without hardware encryption all in the same Storage Rack.

Connectivity options

The various storage devices inside the Storage Rack can be connected to the system via individual eSATA cable for maximum throughput or via multiple Port Multipliers or Multilane connectors or USIB connectors through the back panel of the Storage Rack. Click here for a Port Multiplier Tutorial. The USIB connector enables individual each storage device to connect to system via USB 2.0 or Firewire using one of Addonics optional USIB interface cable. When combined with the wide range of Addonics removable storage systems, IO converters and cables, IDE or SATA storage devices from 1.8" to 3.5" form factors can all be mixed into the same chassis and hot swap in and out like a tape cassette. Up to 6 port multipliers or other SCSI-1 centronics form factor devices can be installed onto the Storage Rack.

The diagram below is for illustration purpose only. The removable drive system, Disk Arrays, Port Multipliers and some of the components shown in the diagram may or may not be included depending on the model. The thermo management card and the two cooling fans are included in all models of Storage Rack and Storage Rack DA
