JBODs designed, equipped and configures by Zstor fits ideal as shared storage in Windows Server 2012 R2 cluster environement. Two nodes, operating under Windows Server 2012 share one or more attached JBODs from Zstor's AJ-series. Via high performing SAS interfaces with up to 12 Gb/s data transfer secures a perfect performance to the attached servers. Robust design of chassis and hot-swappable drive carrier, combined with proven SAS I/O modules grant the access to a huge number of hard disk drives and/or IOP performing solid state disks.

"Storage Spaces" realized as it‘s best

Microsoft Windows Server 2012 needs a high speed access to its storage. Due to the functionality of Storage Spaces there is a just a need for a "Bunch of Disks" (JBOD). Storage Spaces manages the attached hard disk drives as Software Defined Storage and offers storage pools, data reliability, deduplication, file sharing (NFSv4, CIFS), iSCSI targets and much more, inculde SMB 3.0 support. Zstor tested, configured and certified JBODs within Microsoft's certification process for use with Storage Spaces in Windows Server 2012. 

Cost effective and flexible use

JBOD technology itself is a proven way to serve native disk drive capacities to a server or cluster. Zstor AJ series uses latest SAS technology with up to 12 Gb/s data transfer even internally to each attached drive as well as externally to hosts. The complete design is developed with hot-swap drive carrier, power supplies and I/O modules.
