The TSS5203 5U Rackmount Storage Server

The TSS5203 5U Rackmount Storage Server

The TSS5203 5U rackmount storage server utilizes a 3-segment design approach for maximum data security and control.  Three small form factor backplanes and your choice of dual or single-processor SBCs with the latest multi-core processor options are used in the server.
 

Three RAID controller cards manage the bank of forty-eight (48) front access hot swap storage drives.  Support for either AC or DC system power is available and each TSS5203 comes with the long-life cycle stability and peace-of-mind provided by having the single board computer and backplane designed and manufactured by Trenton Systems in the United States.
