Features & Benefits

High Reliability
Featuring redundant power supplies, redundant cooling fans, and 12Gb/s dual-domain SAS expander I/O modules, the Zstor AJ472 guarantees reliability and ensures continuous operation in mission critical applications. With its truly isolated design of fan module and the HDD bays, the rotational vibration (RV) energy can be minimized and controlled not to interfere with hard disk drive operation.

High Flexibility
The six SFF-8644 ports of its external SAS I/O modules can be configured for host connection or cascading. With this daisy chain feature, the Zstor AJ472 is flexible on storage capacity expansion and deployment to address the specific requirements of different applications.


High Serviceability
Its tool-less HDD trays can save HDD installation time up to 80%, and its tool-less top covers, a long travel slide rail rated for 150kg+ capacity and including a cable management arm, make installation and maintenance an easier job. Moreover, a rear-mounted redundant BMC module allows remotely monitoring system status, power on/off, and on-line expander firmware upgrade.

More Value to the Data Center
Data centers are facing growing pressures. Data volume is expanding, operating costs are rising, yet budgets remain flat. Lowering the total cost of ownership (TCO) has become the focus of data center architects and the combination of Zstor AJ472 JBOD with high capacity HDDs provides the best value proposition and greatest storage efficiency available.
