WILD Storage G2 for 6U OpenVPX – 34 TB/Slot – WB6SN0

When Storage capability is needed, Annapolis offers the highest depth and bandwidth OpenVPX storage solutions on the market, with up to 34 TB of capacity and 10-14 GB/s bandwidth in a single 1” 6U slot. It features a removable hot-swappable canisters 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.

High Density High Capacity OpenVPX 6U Storage Board

The 6U WILD Data Storage Solution is comprised of three pieces fitting in a single 1” OpenVPX slot: two “Storage Canisters” which hold SSD, and the “Storage Carrier” that plugs into the VPX backplane and holds the disk canisters.

The Storage Solution is specifically designed to support 10,000+ insertion cycles of the disk canisters for frequent drive removal. Both the canisters and the entire assembly (Storage Canisters + 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).
