Network-attached storage (NAS) that meets and exceeds the definition of ‘industrial grade’ in every way – makes it perfect for industrial applications.

To be a rugged NAS there are several challenges that need to be addressed from the very outset of the design and development process. Chief among these are vibration and shock tolerance, hardiness in extreme temperatures of heat and cold, both redundant power supply and redundant network connectivity, and water and dust resistance.

 

Take note

  • In certain industrial applications, rugged IT devices that may not only be used in a controlled environment are needed.
  • Rugged devices, especially storage devices, have very specific attributes – which must be confirmed when purchasing.
  • Dependable and cost effective solutions are now available.
