SAS Dual-Ported Storage for Media Production - JetStor RDX16

The JetStor RDX16 is a 3U 16-Bay Storage Server with 16x 3.5” HDD + 4x 2.5”-7mm SSD dual-ported SAS bays for Tier0 and Tier1 shared storage. It features four hot-swappable redundant 120mm fan modules and supports two hot-swap MB Modules each with DP server boards in one system as unified redundant controllers.

The JetStor RDX16 is a complete solution engineered to support media production, medical imaging and high-performance computing (HPC). The JetStor RDX16 solution uses RAIDIX error-correction technology to detect and fix silent corruptions while normal disk operations are performing without performance degradation. Additionally, the system conducts background scans for silent errors during lower-activity periods. As a result, they eliminate data loss, ensuring that vital files always remain intact.  JetStor RDX solutions are the only large-block media delivery and storage systems to offer RAID 7.3. The triple parity of RAID 7.3 greatly decreases the probability of system failure and ensures rapid data recovery even if three disks fail simultaneously.

The JetStor RDX16 deploys solid-state drive (SSD) caching to maximize storage and retrieval performance. The RAIDIX caching controller automatically identifies and relocates frequently accessed data to the chassis’ SSDs for the fastest access and media transfer speeds possible. Frames, for example, are never dropped even with concurrent HD or 2K–8K digital video streams and the solutions furnish the massive throughput demanded by HPC applications.

For economy and ease of deployment, the JetStor RDX16 solution supports all protocols, including SAN, DAS, NAS, Fibre Channel, IB and iSCSI, reducing complexity and hardware costs.
