Storage | Secured

Conventional dense 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 gets heated up along the airflow path. 

We address these challenges through a set of technologies developed based on a holistic view of devices, platform, and their interactions. The first 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 these technologies contribute to long-term reliability, enabling our five‑year limited warranty on the entire platform

Massive Security and Surveillance storage capacity. 1.4Petabytes in only 8U. 720TB in each 4U expanded chassis. Performance, protection and hot-swap + redundant everything. Up to 60 HGST HelioSeal® HDDs per Expansion Chassis.

Storage Defined

The Arxys | Shield-Core running Sentio Software Defined Storage (SDS) platform, is purpose-built to scale-up to make storage management disruptively simple while reducing storage costs and complexity.

Hardware Resilience

Hot-swap, redunant Platinum power Dual redundant I/O Modules (IOM) Multi-path storage failover Cable-free hot-swappable IOM, power supply, fans, and drives. Patented IsoVibe™ and ArcticFlow™ technologies improve performance and cooling.

Storage Protection

With advanced failover mechanisms, video surveillance systems built on Shield Core can guarantee sensitive video data is consistently available. Key high availability features ensure that the system designed to provide non-stop security and protection is itself non-stop protected and available.

IsoVibe Patented Vibration Isolation Technology

Precise cuts in the baseboard provide a suspension for the drives in the chassis, isolating them from transmitted vibration. The result is that consistent performance is maintained, even when all the drives are working hard

ArcticFlow Patented Thermal Zone Cooling Technology

By introducing cool air into the center of the chassis, drives operate at lower and more consistent temperatures than conventional systems. This results in lower fan speeds, reduced vibration, lower power consumption, quieter operation and ultimately higher reliability.

Designed for High Density and Flexibility

The Arxys Shield | Core is the key element of next-generation disaggregated storage and software-defined storage (SDS) systems, delivering high density and the flexibility to balance performance with cost. Choice of SAS or SATA and up to 24 slots can be populated with SSDs for a data acceleration tier.
