Easy Expansion
It’s a clear win / win. Space EX adds storage capacity and enhanced performance to your Space and Space Echo systems. Connect one or more Space EX units using an extra RAID card in the Space to add up-to 100% more performance. It’s an easy expansion solution that requires virtually no down-time. Attach a Space EX and simply watch it build away in the background with no impact on active users. There’s none of the usual frustration of re-configuring servers or client computers; it’s simple plug and play.
Cost-saving Solution
Add up-to five Space EX units to painlessly and cost-effectively expand your Space capacity to 1.7PB. This is the most cost-effective way to add capacity and scale performance at the same time. It’s safe and fast – the perfect solution to an increasing need for quick, secure data storage. Using high-speed SAS connectivity, Space EX is easy to install with no new cabling and no client adaptor cards.
