The Ciphertex CX-6K-MD server enables lightning fast transfer of EHR and
EMR files, medical images, surgical video and other data. The server,
which serves as both IP-SAN (iSCSI) and NAS, can be used in different
applications such as backup center, disaster recovery and business
continuity, file sharing and virtualization. It offers advanced RAID
configuration with hot-swap capability.
The new NAS server is packed with security features to stop all
unauthorized data access and prevent data-breach even if the hard drives
or the device is stolen. The dual OS embedded on the DOM architecture
ensures redundancy. If one of the two operating systems fails, the
healthy operating system will boot up and operate normally while
repairing the failed system. The dual Gigabit LAN ports can also be
configured for failover which allows the Ciphertex CK-6K-MD to sustain
the failure of one network port and still provide continuous service.
The Ciphertex CX-6K-MD is VMware certified, Citrix XenServer ready and
Windows Hyper-V compliant. With an advanced Intel (News - Alert)® Core i3-3220, dual
core processor with 3.3 GHz, 2 GB DDR3 memory, it enables fast data
transfers directly to any workstation via its 1Gb/E or 10GbE interface
and connects to external devices over eSATA or USB-3. The portable NAS
Server units are available with an airtight, watertight,
shatter-resistant field kit.

agencies to prevent cybercrime.
