X-ES Packs 3.5 TB of Solid State Storage in Rugged ½ ATR Network Attached Storage System

MIDDLETON, WI--(Marketwire - Aug 9, 2011) - Extreme Engineering Solutions, Inc. (X-ES) announces the availability of the XAct3000 Rugged Solid State Storage System. The natural convection-cooled sub-½ ATR system supports between 1 TB and 3.5 TB of rugged solid state storage. The XAct3000 is a turnkey NAS; by simply configuring the JBODs or RAID units and connecting it to an Ethernet network, customers can start storing and retrieving files.

The XAct3000 supports ATA secure erase and meets the erase requirements of the DOD NISPOM 5220.22 and NSA/CSS 9-12 specifications. The rugged Network Attached Storage (NAS) system supports NFS, SMB/CIFS, FTP, SFTP, and HTTP protocols. Data encryption is also available for the system.

The XAct3000 features include:

  • Up to 3.5 TB of solid state storage
  • Storage declassification and ATA secure erase
  • JBOD, RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, and RAID 6 configurations
  • Optional 256-bit AES encryption
  • NFS, SMB/CIFS, FTP, SFTP, and HTTP protocols
  • Two 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet ports
  • Storage based on SLC NAND flash technology
  • Sub-½ ATR natural convection-cooled or conduction-cooled chassis (reduced height and length)
  • Physical dimensions of 4.88 in. (W), 5.65 in. (H), 10.30 in. (L)
  • Weighs less than 12 pounds
  • Environmentally sealed
  • MIL-STD-461 E/F EMI filtering
  • Optional internal holdup of up to 100 ms at 70 W

"Because solid state storage does not produce a lot of heat, developing a solid state storage NAS system utilizing a natural convection cooled chassis is a good match," states Bret Farnum, VP Sales. "We integrated several of our existing technologies to help our customers achieve a very dense, rugged storage solution."
