Shipborne rugged Network Attached Storage (NSA) System

Rugged redundant data collection and storage redundant high availability network attached storage (NAS) platform

Application Notes

Requirements

Protect data per Information Assurance (IA) on AEGIS class cruisers, using a redundant, high availability rugged storage system. Provide multi-user access to this critical data repository through a network attached topology.


Solution

This application was required for a tech refresh. Elma provided a RAID 5 distributed parity system using the RAIDStor NAS, which uses four removable, extended duty rotating drives in a compact, shock-mounted 2U system platform with rear I/O. The system provides remote RAID array management via SNMP or web interface.
