EKF: eight drive SATA SSD plug-in cassette

An ever-expanding data volume requires a reasonable storage solution for industrial systems. With eight SATA ports via the backplane, CompactPCI Serial systems are perfectly equipped for this purpose. EKF introduces the SDC-SATA cart, a plug-in unit for eight 2.5-inch size SATA drives. The cassette requires only 16HP (~80mm width) in a 3U system rack. Suitable backplanes are readily available. The CompactPCI Serial system slot is reserved for a SATA RAID controller or CPU card, which provides the SATA channels for distribution across the backplane to the SDC-SATA cartridge.

By means of the SDC-SATA cassette very dense mass storage solutions can be built, suitable for industrial and rugged applications.
