WILD Storage For 3U OpenVPX – 4 TB/Slot

WILD Storage for 3U OpenVPX is a revolutionary storage technology with very high memory, storage, and I/O bandwidth capacities. This allows for high-density and high-performance system designs.

The WILD Storage for OpenVPX 3U is comprised of two pieces fitting in a single 1” OpenVPX slot, the “storage canister” which holds up to 8 M.2 SATA disks, and the “Storage Carrier” that plugs into the VPX backplane and holds the disk canister. The Storage Carrier/Canister is specifically designed to support 10,000+ insertion cycles of the disk canister for frequent drive removal. Both the canister and the entire assembly (Storage Canister + Storage Carrier) are also hot swappable for minimum system down time and highest reliability. This OpenVPX compliant payload card supports up to 10Gbps serial I/O on the VPX backplane.

To ensure safe and reliable processing, WILD Storage for OpenVPX 3U boards come equipped with a proactive thermal management system. Sensors across the board monitor power and temperature, with automatic shutdown capability to prevent excessive heat buildup. WILD Storage for OpenVPX 3U boards are built with a rugged, durable design. Sensors can be accessed with a chassis manager (ChMC).

New heatsinks have been tested with great success on WILD Storage for OpenVPX 3U boards. These larger heatsinks also act as stiffeners for the boards, making them sturdier.
