The TSS5203 rackmount data storage server is designed to enable large data storage capacities in applications that require a high-degree of security, system longevity and rugged Made In USA system performance.  This approach makes the Trenton TSS5203 rackmount storage server an ideal data storage platform for government & defense applications such as missile telemetry, secure cross domain networks, radar data monitoring and airborne manned surveillance.  The TSS5203 is also an ideal data storage platform for non-military telecommunications, data centers and broadcasting applications.

The TSS5203 is a 5U rackmount storage server that 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 provide the control needed for 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 SBC and backplane availability of seven-years or more.
