FUJITSU JX60 S2 DAS Subsystem

A passive subsystem extension is a cost effective solution as capacity requirements sometimes exceed the internal storage capacity of a server. However, data growth is constantly outpacing the increase in storage device capacity thereby requiring more storage devices and more rack space. This is why the FUJITSU JX60 S2 DAS Subsystem provides high storage device capacity in a minimum space. Mix and match up to 60 low-cost 3.5 inch or 2.5 inch Nearline SAS hard disk drives in a 4U rack enclosure, delivering a capacity of up to 600 Terabytes (2.5 inch drives can be installed in the same slot as the 3.5 inch drives using 3.5 inch mounting frames that are provided). A total capacity of 1,200 Terabytes per 8U rack space can be delivered by attaching up to 2 enclosures directly to a server with a small, space-saving footprint.
