After experiencing backplane-based storage pods, the community wanted a new and improved experience.
They asked for redundancy - both in terms of redundant power supplies and boot drives - and we delivered. Our customers wanted a faster, more powerful pod that could transmit and write data more quickly than the original backplane was able to do, and the new direct-wired pod delivered.
We also innovated the original 45 Drives storage pod to include sliding rails, identifiable drives and email notifications for drive failures, all based on feedback from the community.
Huge storage (up to 480TB* in a 4U enclosure)
With 30, 45 or 60 hard-drive slots, the Storinator storage pods provide massive amounts of storage, up to 480TB of raw data. This huge raw data capacity is generally configured in striped arrays to achieve data security through redundancy and ultra fast file transfer speeds.
Ultra fast (speeds in excess of 1 gigabyte/sec)
When properly configured, these machines can easily exceed read and write speeds of 1 gigabyte per second. Compared to previous backplane versions, the direct-wired Storinator has the bandwidth to take on a wide variety of demanding applications.
Highest reliability (greatly reduced circuit board count)
By eliminating 9 circuit boards from the 3.0 pod design, we have achieved reduced failure rates. As well, the switch to direct wired gives Storinator users greater customization to be able to run more applications/operating systems and take advantage of applications other than simple data storage.
Highly customizable (configured exactly how you want it)
45 Drives is a leader in mass customization. We have the unique ability within the storage community to build you a large storage pod that fits your exact needs. Customizations range from small changes such as a memory upgrade to highly customized machines with multiple CPUs, motherboards and SSD caching banks, and even completely new enclosures and physical form factors. This can be done from quantity one and up. Whatever you're looking for, we can build it.
Hot Swappable (No interruptions, even when drives fail)
All of the hard drives in the Storinator storage pods are 100% hot swappable, meaning that you can replace a failed hard drive and rebuild an array without rebooting the unit and taking it offline.
Western Digital's (WD) Enterprise-class hard drives match the durability and stability of our Storinator storage server, especially for higher-availability applications. WD hard drives deliver advanced, reliable and ultra-fast technology performance. Regardless of your storage needs, you can depend on these drives to maintain maximum performance and data integrity.
