VMETRO Adds Storage Alternatives to VMDRIVE

VMETRO (News - Alert) has announced the availability of additional storage alternatives to its VMDRIVE.
The VMDRIVE 6U VME/cPCI slot storage products now include rotating media options as well as several larger capacity solid-state storage options.
VMETRO says they provide commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) board- and system-level embedded computer products from development to deployment for applications in Aerospace & Defense, Industrial, Communications, Medical, Enterprise Computing and Network Storage.
The VMDIVE was developed to complement military and aerospace applications and can enable deployment of recording applications in rugged conduction-cooled or commercial air-cooled environments.
The newly added rotating media in VMDRIVE offers 300GB or 450GB storage capacity and stores data at 100 MB/s via dual channels of 2Gbps Fibre Channel.
The VMDRIVE is available with dual channel 2Gbps Fibre Channel interfaces using both high and low-density media. The low-density VMDRIVE stores data at 60MB/s and is available with up to 256GB of storage capacity. The low-density models occupy a single VME or cPCI slot in air and conduction-cooled versions.
The High-density VMDRIVEs offer 146GB and 500GB storage capacity and are available as a dual-slot air-cooled solution, the high-density solid-state stores data at 120MB/s.
