OpenFlex Data24 NVMe-oF Storage Platform

 
 
  • Up to 368TB in 2U
  • High density and capacity
  • Low latency
  • Dual Port SSDs

Features

Western Digital’s OpenFlex Data24 NVMe-oF Storage Platform extends the high performance of NVMe flash to shared storage. It provides low-latency sharing of NVMe SSDs over a high-performance Ethernet fabric to deliver similar performance to locally attached NVMe SSDs. Industry-leading connectivity, using Western Digital RapidFlex™ network adapters, allows up to six hosts to be attached without a switch.
The OpenFlex Data24 NVMe-oF Storage Platform can also be used as a disaggregated storage resource in an open composable infrastructure environment. OpenFlex Data24 is built to deliver high availability and enterprise-class reliability. The entire enclosure, including SSDs, is backed with a 5-year limited warranty..
