MBX Announces 60-Drive, 4U Storage Server For Software Vendors, Meeting High-Density Video, Cloud And Other Storage Needs

LIBERTYVILLE, Ill., April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Custom server appliance manufacturer MBX Systems today announced a 60-drive, 4U storage appliance for video, cloud and other software applications requiring turnkey appliances with extreme high density capabilities. Fully configurable to meet a wide range of application needs, the new MBX X-60 unit conserves both power and rack space by packing up to 60 discrete 3.5" drives into a chassis that typically can accommodate no more than 36. It also capable of handling both big data storage and processing requirements in one integrated unit, delivering additional flexibility and space-saving benefits.

The new super-sized storage and processing box – which will be introduced at MBX Booth #SL9610 at the NAB Show in Las Vegas – speeds time to market for application providers by eliminating the need to design and spec a custom high density chassis and component platform for a server appliance from scratch.

  • Support for a variety of x86 or ARM architectures depending on the motherboard configuration
  • Integrated individual drive activity and fail LED indicators
