20 TB Storage System from MEN Micro Features Modular, CompactPCI Serial Design
BLUE BELL, Pa. February 2015 – MEN Micro Inc., a world-renowned provider of embedded computing and I/O solutions for mission-critical industrial, mobile and harsh environment applications, has expanded its modular, built-to-order systems with the MH70S designed for storage applications.
The CompactPCI Serial platform, which offers a capacity of up to 20 TB, is a pre-configured system for storage intensive applications such as digital video recorders, content servers or NAS. Its robust, compact design makes the storage PC ideal for use in trains, buses and industrial environments.
Robust, Safe and Flexible with Intel i7 and RAID
MEN Micro's MH70S is a half 19-inch modular system with up to five HDD/SSD slot cards, totaling 20 TB. This makes the system a real storage giant. For robust and safe operation, the HDD carriers can be configured in RAID 0, 1 or 5, while the carriers themselves have their own internal RAID 0, 1 and JBOD hardware configuration abilities.
The system is based on a high-performance Intel Core i7 processor supporting Intel AMT functionality and featuring two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. An optional TPM provides additional data safety, so it can be used for services such as pay-per-view. Intel vPro functionality enables remote administration.
An optional shelf controller complements the MH70S' self-control and self-monitoring capabilities. It manages lifetime information about critical components, such as the shelf fans andpower supplies, and can be used for manual shutdown.
For external communication, the system provides flexible configurations. Two of the seven slots in the system can be equipped with Ethernet interfaces and/or Ethernet switches – the latter with Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) functionality. For wireless communication via WLAN, UMTS, LTE, GPS or GLONASS, these slots alternatively can be used with PCI Express Mini Cards.
The MH70S offers two PSU slots for AC or DC to ensure system reliability and redundancy.
The new storage box PC offers a wealth of individual configuration options for data storage and processing power. Its high flexibility and complete software support for all usable storages and interface components save costs, while ensuring fast time-to-market.
Designed for years of use in harsh and extreme environmental conditions, the MH70S is a reliable and robust built-to-order system with a small footprint. The system can be rack or wall-mounted and uses either natural, fanless convection or an additional fan tray at the bottom of the system for cooling.
