QuantaVault JB4602
High Performance High Density 4U Disk Expansion Unit
As an high density, scalable, and cost-effective disk expansion unit, QuantaVault JB4602 is tailored to carry 60 hot-swappable 3.5"/2.5", 12Gb SASIII/6 Gb SATAIII, HDDs/SSDs in a 4U enclosure that provides shared direct-attached-storage to as many as four servers simultaneously via four external mini-SAS HD ports. Major components including power supplies, fans, and SAS interface modules are redundant and hot-swappable. The design is optimized for the general-purpose needs of enterprise and hyper scale datacenters where the lowest operational cost-per-watt and smallest footprint are critical.
High Density
JB4602 supports 60 hot-swappable 3.5"/2.5", 12Gb SASIII/6Gb SATAIII, HDDs/SSDs in a 4U enclosure, with up to 480TB of storage capacity using 8TB drives. This equates to 12 drives per RU. .
JB4602 provides flexible and scalable disk configuration and combination. It supports 2.5" and/or 3.5" SAS and/or SATA, HDD and/or SSD, and different disk capacity options. Users can configure various disk options to address their unique needs and performance requirements.
The QuantaVault JB4602 is a cost-effective alternative for enterprises that want high density storage solution support up to 480 TB total storage capacity. The unit can be shared with up to four servers via multi-lane Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) host interfaces, allowing these customers to enjoy the efficiency of high density storage across multiple physical servers.
Reliability & High Availability
QuantaVault JB4602 supports dual high-efficiency redundant power supplies and four hot-swappable fans, ensuring reliability and continuous availability in mission-critical datacenter environments. Hot-swappable redundant SAS interface modules provides dual data paths and ensure continuous operation. High density storage can present substantial mechanical engineering challenges from the sheer mass of rotating media. Interference from vibration caused by hard disk rotation is isolated in the JB4602 to assure reliability and high performance across a range of loading and access scenarios.
Serviceability & Manageability
With its innovative coverless, top load HDD design, QuantaVault JB4602 significantly reduces service and maintenance complexity.
