SGI® Modular InfiniteStorage™ JBOD

SGI Modular InfiniteStorage JBOD (SGI MIS JBOD) is a high-density expansion storage platform, designed for maximum flexibility and the ability to be tuned to specific customer requirements. Whether as a standalone dense JBOD solution, or combined with SGI Modular InfiniteStorage Server (SGI MIS Server), SGI MIS JBOD provides unparalleled versatility for IT managers while also dramatically reducing the amount of valuable datacenter real estate required to accommodate rapidly-expanding data needs.

Up to 81 3.5" or 2.5" Drives in 4U

SGI MIS JBOD shares the same innovative dense design with SGI MIS Server, which can be configured with up to 81 3.5" or 2.5" SAS, SATA SSD drives. This enables SGI MIS JBOD to have up to 324TB in 4U.

When combined with SGI's 19" D-Rack, or other standard rack, up to 3.2PB of disk capacity can be supplied within a single 19" rack footprint. This density enables IT organizations to reclaim valuable floor space and reduce power and cooling costs.

SGI MIS JBOD is designed for resiliency, using hot-pluggable and redundant components such as fans and power supplies. Through an innovative rail design, the chassis can be accessed from the front or rear, enabling drives and other components to be non-disruptively replaced.

This simple feature not only makes the system much easier to service, but it significantly reduces the strain on cables and connectors that is a frequent source of fragility in other large systems that require heavy trays to be pulled out entirely to access individual components.

SGI MIS JBOD comes with a SAS I/O module, which can accommodate four quad port connectors or 16 lanes. An additional SAS/IO module can be added as an option for increased availability.
