Phalanx II Network Attached Storage

Phalanx II

The Phalanx II is a rugged Small Form Factor (SFF) Network Attached Storage (NAS) computer system.

The Phalanx II is SWaP-optimized for high performance, high capacity and secure data storage for Unmanned Aerial and Underwater Vehicles (UAVs, UUVs) and airborne ISR applications.

This small form factor NAS weighs less than ten lbs, provides up to 32TB of storage capacity with two Solid State Disks (SSDs) and supports RAID 0 (striping) and RAID 1 (mirroring). Hot-swap removable drives are optionally available. System configuration and management are provided via a convenient web-based GUI or CLI.

Data security for the Phalanx II includes optional support for AES-256 encryption and hardware and/or software triggered Data Elimination.
