Conduant's StreamStor® products provide a wide variety of scaling options:
- Two StreamStor® Recorders:
Conduant offers both the Amazon and Amazon Express controllers. Amazon data rates range up to 600MB/sec and Amazon Express offers performance up to 800MB/sec.
- Replace disks with higher capacity disks for longer duration:
Longer recording duration is achieved by simply replacing existing drives with higher capacity drives. StreamStor® is compatible with off-the-shelf SATA drives including 2.5 inch, 3.5 inch and solid state drives. Drives with capacities up to 2TB are supported with total capacity reaching 32TB.
- Multi-bus configurations for extremely high-speed applications:
For data rates exceeding the performance of a single StreamStor® (currently over 800 MB/s) you can configure multiple StreamStor®s to record at rates of GB/s and beyond. Multi-bus motherboards and PCI expansion backplanes can be used for extreme scalability.
All StreamStor® products are designed for sustained high-speed, error-free, recording and playback.
StreamStor® recorders sustain data rates of up to 800 MB/s from a single board. By using multiple StreamStor® devices you can record at 1 GB/s or more. StreamStor®'s unique approach to moving data direct to disk allows it to take full advantage of the speed of the hardware interface.
The StreamStor® product line comes in PCI, PXI and PCI Express form factors. In addition, StreamStor® supports interfaces like FPDP (Front Panel Data Port), LVDS, Serial FPDP and 10GigE. Protocols such as SerialLite II are supported as well. Pair StreamStor® with off-the-shelf digital I/O boards, DSPs, A/D or frame grabbers for additional interface options.
StreamStor® ensures that every data bit is captured and recorded error-free by the system. StreamStor® does this by dynamically moving data to the hard drive array attached to the system without the overhead of the underlying operating system.
As hard disk drives continue to grow in capacity, so does StreamStor®'s ability to record for longer periods of time. Current off-the-shelf disk drives are now available in capacities of 2 TB. A base recording system from Conduant can grow to 32 TB of total capacity, providing recording durations of several hours at full speed. Conduant's Big River™TK200 recorder can start with 16 TB; however, you may choose to use the TK200 as an infinite (24x7) recording system with Conduant's swappable disk modules.
