Viking Enterprise Solutions Launches High Density and High Availability Enterprise Storage Solution

VDS41022 Includes Compact Design, Patented Thermal Architecture and Unique I/O Layout that Supports 24G SAS (SAS-4) I/O Protocols

SAN JOSE, Calif., July 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Viking Enterprise Solutions, a product division of Sanmina Corporation (Nasdaq: SANM), today announced availability of the VDS41022 JBOD storage enclosure, the highest density solution in a standard one-meter rack that supports 24G SAS (SAS-4) storage protocols.

The VDS41022 has a 4U standard rack width design that packs 102 large form factor drives with configurations exceeding 2 petabytes of storage in a one-meter deep rack including the cable management arm. The patented thermal management solution enables a high-density environment that is combined with an optimized data path topology to ensure that maximum bandwidth is available from all of the drives. Its unique design provides the flexibility to support either current SAS-3 or emerging SAS-4 I/O infrastructures. The split drive plane layout optimizes signal integrity, which enables use of up to 5-meter passive copper cables in new 24G SAS (SAS-4) products.

“Adoption of 24G SAS storage protocols is occurring faster than initially expected, driven by the continuously increasing demand for data and data analytics,” said Rick Kumar, SVP of Product Design and Engineering for Viking Enterprise Solutions. “The VDS41022 provides the flexibility to support this transition, ultimately providing faster access to data with double the bandwidth as 24G SAS infrastructures take hold.”

The VDS41022 is now shipping. For more information, please see the product brief.
