Crystal Group Inc. has created a next generation rugged storage system
designed for extreme duty in military operations, commercial industries, and highly
demanding mission critical applications.
Crystal Group’s new RSS13S17 JBOD rugged 1U storage system is a standout
storage solution for reasons such as the amount of storage options,
compatibility with existing Crystal Group hard drive sleds, individually removable
drives, and proven reliability based on successful experience with current
servers. The unit can be configured with three 4TB drives.
Key features of the new RSS13S17 JBOD rugged 1U storage system includes
SAS direct attached storage array 43.18cm deep; all aluminium chassis weighing
4.54-5.44kg providing high capability and storage capacity in a small rugged
package; ability to hold up to six removable 6.35cm SATA/SAS hard drives or
three removable 8.90cm SATA/SAS hard drives; and rear I/O for power and SAS
The RSS13S17 JBOD rugged 1U storage system also allows additional units to
be connected together in a daisy chain to accommodate increased storage
requirements, giving the user the flexibility to optimise the maximum amount of
storage needed for any application.
Built on Crystal Group’s expertise in kinematic design and development, the
game-changing technology provides for six removable SATA/SAS hard drives
designed and tested for the harshest of environments.
Innovative packaging techniques and attention to important details make
the product run cooler and perform at wider temperature extremes. Crystal Group’s
design approach limits deflection and extends circuit board solder joint life
providing incredible processing power in a rugged package with exceptional life
at a fraction of the cost.
Crystal Group is represented in Australia and
