Vmetro has added storage alternatives for its VMDRIVE 6U VME/cPCI slot storage products, which now include rotating media options as well as several larger capacity solid-state storage options.

Designed to meet demanding military and aerospace applications, the VMDRIVE enables deployment of recording applications in rugged conduction-cooled or commercial air-cooled environments.

The rotating media VMDRIVE offers 300- or 450Gbyte storage capacity. This dual-slot VME or cPCI alternative is available in commercial air-cooled models. The VMDRIVE rotating media version stores data at 100MBps via dual channels of 2Gbit/s Fibre Channel.

For demanding applications that require solid-state storage, the VMDRIVE is available with dual channel 2Gbit/s Fibre Channel interfaces using both high and low-density media. The low-density VMDRIVE stores data at 60MBps and is available with up to 256Gbyte of storage capacity. The low-density models occupy a single VME or cPCI slot in air and conduction-cooled versions. High-density VMDRIVEs offer 146-and 500Gbyte storage capacity. Available as a dual-slot air-cooled solution, the high-density solid-state stores data at 120MBps.

The VMDRIVE is a member of Vmetro's storage family that spans requirements from benign lab to high altitude environments utilizing Fibre Channel storage area network. Vmetro's storage solutions provide highly flexible, high performance media that is scalable to meet a variety of application needs. The Vmetro JBOD, SBOD, RAID and solid-state products deliver optimal data throughput and extremely high bandwidth for real-time DAQ.
