12-Bay Rugged RAID System


Phoenix International delivers high performance, high capacity and fault-tolerant RAID and Disk Array Subsystems that are configured to meet the user’s specific data storage requirements. These systems provide state of the art features such as cableless, midplane-based high density chassis, enclosed and isolated drive canisters and redundant, hot-swap components.Our most robust system, the RPC24, was designed to be compliant with military and industrial specifications such as MIL-STD-901D, MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-461F and NEBS level 3.

Additional Details

Phoenix International’s RPC12 is a high-performance Fibre/SAS/iSCSI Host Channel, 6Gb SAS Solid State/Hard Disk Drive RAID Storage Array that delivers a level of operational environmental capability not previously available in COTS Data Storage Systems. The Storage Area Network (SAN) ready RPC12 features a 12 Hard Disk Drive array housed in a rugged 3U (5.25″) panel height enclosure providing 16Gb FC, 12Gb SAS, or 10GigE iSCSI host interfaces to high-performance 6Gb SAS HDDs and SSDs.

The RPC12 was designed to be compliant with military and industrial specifications such as MIL-STD-901D, MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-461E and NEBS level 3. The unique design of the RPC12’s rugged, cableless, passive mid-plane-based, high-density 3U chassis provides an increased environmental operational envelope (0° to +70°C, 45,000 ft altitude with SSDs), redundant, hot-swap components and massive storage capacity while assuring the highest level of data availability.
