Rugged SATA Open VPX Disk Module


Phoenix International’s VP1-250-SSD/HDD Serial ATA (SATA) based VPX blade delivers high capacity, high performance data storage for military, aerospace and industrial applications requiring rugged, secure and durable mass data storage.

The VP1-250-SSD/HDD is a 3U VPX storage module that can support either a rotating or solid-state hard drive. When used with supporting media, the VP1-250-SSD/HDD supports the “purge” input signal to destroy the media or the “Zeroize” function that performs a DOD approved erasure of the media.

The VP1-250-SSD/HDDs outstanding performance and versatility is enabled by Phoenix International’s state-of-the-art technology, which provides very high transfer and I/O rates, enhanced endurance, and maximum data integrity.
