WILD Data Storage Solution – 9.3 TB/Slot

This Storage Board delivers up to 9.3 TB of capacity in a single 1” slot with up to 4.5 GB/s of write bandwidth.  It also features a removable hot swappable canister with a connector rated for 10,000+ mating cycles.  The WILD Data Storage Solution comes with standard images to support XAUI, 40GbE and AnnapMicro Protocol (Annapolis low FPGA utilization, full flow control protocol ideal for inter-FPGA communication).

High Density High Capacity OpenVPX 6U Storage Board

The WILD Data Storage Solution is comprised of two pieces fitting in a single 1” OpenVPX slot, the “storage canister” which holds up to 12 1.8” 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 40Gb serial I/O on the VPX Data Plane on P1 to support four channels of 40GbE (proper backplane required for faster rates).

To ensure safe and reliable processing, WILD Data Storage Solution 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 Data Storage Solution boards are built with a rugged, durable design. Sensors can be accessed with a chassis manager (ChMC).
