60 is the new 24

It was only a few years ago when a 24-bay JBOD was considered high density.  Those days are over, driven by business demands for higher scalability, more efficient rack utilization, and lower operating costs.

The storageFOUNDRY 6030s-60 addresses today’s relentless data growth with an ultra dense, cost effective solution. Housing 60 hot-swappable 3.5” SAS or SATA HDDs and SSDs in a 4U enclosure makes it one of the densest storage enclosures available with 15 HDDs/U, and 90 TBs/U using 6TB SAS HDDs. Imagine 1 petabytes in just 12 rack units.  Or 4.3 petabytes in a 48U cabinet.

The storageFOUNDRY 6030s-60 offers best-in-class performance supporting 6Gb/sec SAS 2.0 host and SAS/SATA HDD connections, space saving density, “green” energy efficiency, and 24-7 high availability redundancies of key components. With 4 SAS connectors per IO module, the 6030s-60 can support 19,200 MB/sec bandwidth. SAS 2.0 zoning support enables a variety of configurations including high availability, disaster recovery, multi-server fan-out, and maximum performance.

In addition to functioning as a standalone external DAS JBOD for standard SAS host connect, the 6030s-60 is a perfect expansion companion to the storageFOUNDRY 4600 Storage Server Series. Multiple 6030s-60 can be daisy-chained together to keep pace with data growth.
