Features heater, DC power and rugged options
LONGMONT, Colorado – June 3, 2013 – Conduant Corporation, a leader in long-duration high-speed recording and playback systems, today introduced the LTXe Storage Array for high-capacity, high-density storage in a compact form factor. The LTXe facilitates easy modular expansion of disk storage via cabled PCI Express (PCIe) and features heater, DC power and rugged options for extreme and specialized environments.
The LTXe Storage Array is available in a shallow depth 1U, 20” deep rack mount chassis. It supports up to 16 1-TB 2.5” hard disk drives (HDD) or 16 solid state drives (SSD) with 2TB drives available. A powered cable connector provides attachment to the host using commercially available iPass connectors with integrated copper/optical converters for operation over long distances. The optional heater feature enables operation at otherwise prohibitively low temperatures. The DC power option can be used for aircraft or vehicle installations. Its rugged version is designed to meet the military standard 810G (MIL-STD-810G).
Conduant founder and CEO, Ken Owens stated, “That while we are a leader in the industry with our StreamStor® high-speed peer-to-peer and direct-to-disk recording and playback solutions, Conduant is expanding its product offerings to include exceptional performance and capacity for more traditional file-based storage operations. Now we can accommodate customers who demand a high-density footprint, including heater support and DC power supplies, if required. If and when customer performance requirements change, they can always upgrade to StreamStor for reliable sustained data streaming performance.”
