AVADirect offering 8U 100TB Storage servers

AVADirect offering 8U 100TB Storage servers

 

AVADirect has just pushed the size of their storage servers to the max. They did this both physically and capacity wise.

 

According to a PR posting over at their forum the new servers will be a full 8U high and have 100 Terabytes of storage. That is a whole lot of downloaded movies. Each server has 50 Bays for either SATA or SAS drives. When combined with 2TB drives you get the full 100TB.

 

Of course these systems are not for your average geek looking to hide his collection of Star Trek The Next Generation. No these are for enterprise storage systems where tons of data needs to be available at to high-bandwidth networks.

 

The rest of the components in the systems are impressive as well. AVADirect is offering both AMD and Intel flavors each can be setup as either SATA or SAS.
