WARP Mechanics is known for its high-capacity storage solutions, but not every situation calls for the most density. Sometimes light and fast are the order of the day, especially when it comes to all-flash SSD systems. Enter the WDS-9224 JBOF.

A “just a bunch of flash” subsystem, the WDS-9224 is a 19-inch 2U rackmount JBOD unit optimized for external and shared SSD storage. It features SAS 3.0 12Gb/s connections and is designed to fit in environments which need highly reliable and scalable growth but in a footprint better suited to SSD devices. The WDS-9224 platform addresses the demanding storage needs of HPC and large enterprises as a key element of next generation storage systems.

Delivering up to 184TB storage capacity using today’s high-capacity flash devices with performance of up to 4.7M IOPS and less than 1ms latency, the WDS-9224 is ideal for accelerating enterprise workloads such as metadata, database, virtualization, and scale-out configurations. With a total of six x4 12Gbps High Density SAS ports, each JBOD can deliver up to 184 Gb/s (23GB/s) in read/write bandwidth per shelf.
