Enterprise Class High Density 102 drive High Availability JBOD
The Viking Enterprise Solutions (VES) NDS-41020 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 NDS-41020 Storage JBOD offers best-in-class performance and capacity, space-saving density, “green” energy efficiency and high-availability of all active components. The NDS-41020 fits into an industry standard 19” wide by 1.0m deep rack.

Applications Use Cases
The NDS-41020 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 NDS-41020 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 NDS-41020 provides leading-edge density, capacity, $/GB savings, and reduced footprint for even the largest of today’s hyper-scale data centers.
