Capella WDC60-JBOD

A high performance, next-generation JBOD

Designed for Big Data The Atipa Capella WDC60-JBOD platform addresses the demanding storage needs of HPC and enterprise solutions that require dense, shared HDD or hybrid storage and provides the flexibility to specify the HDD and SSD combinations to balance capacity, performance and cost. Conventional disk shelves frequently suffer from performance degradation due to induced vibration from adjacent drives. Traditional platforms also have cooling challenges as the cooling air passes over successive rows of drives, losing effectiveness as it heats up along the airflow path. Two of these patented technologies are IsoVibe and ArcticFlow. IsoVibe reduces vibration-induced performance degradation, while ArcticFlow overcomes the cooling issues by introducing cool air into the middle of the platform. Both of these technologies contribute to long-term reliability, enabling a five-year limited warranty on the entire platform.
