WILD Storage G2 for 3U OpenVPX – 17 TB/Slot – WB3SN0

When Storage capability is needed, Annapolis offers the highest depth and bandwidth 3U OpenVPX storage solutions on the market, with up to 17 TB of capacity and 5-7 GB/s bandwidth in a single 3U slot. It features a removable hot-swappable canister with a connector rated for 10,000+ mating cycles. The WILD Data Storage Solution comes with software configuration to support NVM Express (NVMe) over PCI Express (PCIe) and RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE).

Annapolis Storage Solutions are optimized for SIGINT, ELINT, EW, or other high-bandwidth storage applications.

The 3U WILD Data Storage Solution is comprised of two pieces fitting in a single 3U OpenVPX slot: a “Storage Canister” which holds SSD, and the “Storage Carrier” that plugs into the VPX backplane and holds the disk canister.

The Storage Solution 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 downtime and highest reliability.

To ensure safe and reliable processing, WILD Data Storage Solution boards come equipped with a proactive thermal management system. Sensors throughout the system 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).
