Backblaze Storage Pod 6.0: Fully Assembled 60 Drive 600TB Storage Server
Backblaze Storage Pod 6.0 deploys 60 off-the-shelf hard drives in a 4U chassis to lower the cost of our latest data storage server to just $0.036/GB. That’s 22 percent less than our Storage Pod 5.0 storage server that used 45 drives to store data for $0.044/GB. That’s a 33 percent increase to the storage density in the same rack space. Using 4TB drives in a 60-drive Storage Pod increases the amount of storage in a standard 40U rack from 1.8 to 2.4 Petabytes. Of course, by using 8TB drives you’d get a 480TB data storage server in 4U server and 4.8 Petabytes in a standard rack.
The unit hosts brand new wiring harness technology, drive rails, drive guides and a new removable backplane tray. Included is an upgraded Xeon Quad Core CPU, 32 GB of RAM and a 10GB Network Card. Our fully assembled unit is put together, burned in and thoroughly tested before being shipped out. Included in your shipment are the items listed below, 6.0 chassis, 2 EVGA 750w Power Supplies (non-redundant), Dynatron CPU fan and all cabling/screws needed to get your unit up and running. Note that hard drives are not included.
