Storage capacity can be expanded by adding external hard disk towers to your microCT system. Particularly attractive is the addition of disk towers configured with RAID 5 disk arrays, which store your data on multiple disks automatically, helping to protect you from data loss. Hot spare disks can be included for extra peace of mind.
Spindle speed RPM
(4/2 RAID 6)
SAS disks are recommended for highest performance. SATA disks offer a cost-effective upgrade path when capacity and cost take priority over absolute performance.
A maximum of 5 D2600 and D2700 arrays can be connected in cascade per RAID controller.
HP disk towers carry a one (SATA, midline SAS) or three-year guarantee (SAS enterprise) with next working day exchange in the event of disk failure.
Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks
Spare disk within RAID array that stands-in automatically when a disk fails. Redundant storage of data is maintained.
