Enterprise Class High Density 102 drive High Availability JBOD
The Viking Enterprise Solutions (VES) NDS41020 High Density JBOD packages 102 3.5” hard disk drives (HDDs) at 12Gb/s.


The enclosure contains two active I/O Modules (IOMs). The VES NDS41020 Storage JBOD offers best-in-class performance and capacity, space-saving density, “green” energy efficiency and high-availability of all active components. The NDS41020 fits into an industry standard 19” wide by 1.0m deep rack.

Applications Use Cases
The NDS41020 JBOD was designed to enable vertical scaling of storage capacity in order to match the needs of a wide range of enterprise grade storage applications requiring full redundancy. The NDS41020 allows for expanding external storage in file, block and object storage format through a standard SAS interface between the JBOD and any standard storage server. The NDS41020 provides leading-edge density, capacity, $/GB savings, and reduced footprint for even the largest of today’s hyper-scale data centers.
