Modular 20 TB Storage System based on CompactPCI Serial

MEN introduces a further member of its modular built-to-order system family - the MH70S. The CompactPCI Serial platform MH70S is a pre-configured system for storage intensive applications such as digital video recorders, content servers or NAS. Its robust and compact design makes the storage PC ideal for use in trains, trams or industrial environments.

MH70S - Rugged 19" Modular Storage System
  • Compact 19" turn-key system
  • Intel Core i7 or Celeron, TPM optional
  • Up to 16 GB DDR3 DRAM soldered, ECC
  • Up to 20 TB storage capacity (depending on RAID level and HDD sizes)
  • Up to 5 hot-swappable HDD/SSD carriers in different RAID configurations
  • Single or redundant power supplies or uninterruptible power supply (AC or DC)

Nuremberg, Germany - February 05, 2015. MEN introduces a further member of its modular built-to-order system family - the MH70S. The CompactPCI Serial platform MH70S is a pre-configured system for storage intensive applications such as digital video recorders, content servers or NAS. Its robust and compact design makes the storage PC ideal for use in trains, trams or industrial environments.

Robust, Safe and Flexible with Intel i7 and RAID

The MH70S from MEN is a 19-inch modular system based on the CompactPCI Serial standard. Up to 5 HDD / SSD carriers make the modular storage system a real storage giant. For robust and safe operation, the HDD carriers can be configured in RAID 0, 1 or 5 while the carriers themselves have their own internal RAID 0, 1 and JBOD hardware configuration possibility.

The system is based on a high performance Intel Core i7 processor supporting Intel AMT functionality and two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. An optional TPM module provides additional data safety e.g., so it can also be used for realizing Pay-per-View services. Remote administration is possible through the use of Intel vPro. The MH70S also has an optional shelf controller to complement the self-control and self-monitoring capabilities. It manages life-time information about i.e. the shelf fans, power supplies and can be used for manual shutdown.

For external communication, there are also flexible options: Two of the seven slots in the system can be equipped with Ethernet interfaces and / or Ethernet switches - the latter with Power over Ethernet Plus functionality (PoE+). For wireless communication via WLAN, UMTS, LTE, GPS or GLONASS these slots alternatively can be used for PCI Express Mini Cards.

The MH70S offers two PSU slots for AC or DC, to ensure reliability and redundancy of the system.

MH70S offers a wealth of individual configuration options for data storage and processing power. The high flexibility and a complete software support for all usable storages and interface components, save costs and ensure a fast time-to-market.

All things considered, the MH70S is a reliable and robust built-to-order system with a small footprint which also can be operated without a fan for years of use in harsh and extreme environmental conditions.
