16 bay SSD bank

The combination of SSD and mechanical storage gives extremely fast random access to active data. Once you are finished working from your SSD, you can move your data to the mechanical hard drives for longer term storage. Doing this within a single chassis allows for extremely fast transfers.

Caching and tiering can be handled on an OS, NAS, or cluster layer, or even at the application level. Hybrid storage lets you accelerate your IO performance with different combinations of SSD/hard drive setups, based on your specific workload.

  • Flexibile

    Add 1 OR 2 SSD banks to any
    of our 30, 45 and 60 drive

  • Affordable

    The most cost-effective
    HYBRID SOLUTION on the market.
