Low cost 12Gb/s SAS JBOD

Low cost 12Gb SAS JBOD

Store and protect data at the lowest industry cost per gigabyte, per rackmount unit. VSPL will custom build your JBOD expansion chassis with the amount of storage capacity and performance you need using off the shelf enterprise drives. This means you get the very best price possible for enterprise NL-SAS HDDs and SSDs, and aren't paying a premium price on re-branded drives from a traditional storage vendor. We will even help you to correctly size the amount of capacity you need - just ask our friendly sales team.


High-density SAS JBOD

High-density SAS JBOD

A reliable high density enterprise SAS JBOD for large scale-out and scale-up software-defined storage projects. Featuring dual redundant SAS IO modules with multiple host ports. We custom configure every system with your choice of high capacity NL-SAS HDD including the latest 12TB 7,200rpm SAS energy efficient helium filled drives. You can deploy a huge amount of capacity in a small footprint in your data-centre. Other capacity and performance configurations are available including using 2.5" SSDs.


Scale-out storage platform

Scale-out storage platform

If you will be generating huge amounts of data, or already have a large appetite for storage, then you need to think about using affordable high-density JBODs which will enable you to make use of all available rack-space in your data-centre. This JBOD has been designed specifically to meet these growing storage demands within big data and HPC (High Performance Computing) projects. We use this JBOD to provide the underlying capacity for object storage projects and scale-out file systems like CEPH, Hadoop, ZFS and Microsoft Windows Server 2012.


Energy efficient storage

Energy efficient storage

This system will enable you to reduce power consumption in your data-centre to improve storage efficiency. It features redundant, low power, hot-swap power supply and cooling modules that provides extremely efficient cooling. If you are looking to reduce costs then this as green as you can go while still delivering the reliabilit and availability that you'd demand from an enterprise grade storage vendor.

Data storage configuration

Configuration & installation

Reduce your installation and set-up time by allowing us to pre-configure your system.

We will build a system with drives, and then test it before shipping. It will arrive ready for our professional installers to quickly rack and complete set-up. All you need to do is provide us with your desired network configuration info and we'll do the rest. If you don't want to share any details with us then we'll give you as much support as you need to get the system set-up once it has been physically installed.


JetStor support

Service & support

Select your desired service level and get expert support from a storage professional.

Support packages range from standard next business day telephone, e-mail and web support with advance parts replacements, through to engineer on-site, and 24x7 4hr response. We will provide an appropriate SLA for your specific needs, wherever you are based in Europe. If you're out of region then we can still help you, but we'll probably work with a local service partner to improve response times.
