TR MS7/600 is suitable for applications that require data mobility at the edge. It has been developed in alignment with the SOSA Technical Standard.

The new 3U VPX board features a high bandwidth Gen 3 PCI Express (PCIe) connection, as well as two storage modules that use the NVMe protocol. Applications for which the board would be suitable include those in the defence and aerospace markets. The main advantage of TR MS7/600, when compared to other conduction-cooled storage products from Concurrent Technologies, is the ability for the user to safely remove and replace the storage modules from the front of the board.

TR MS7/600 has been developed to operate in temperatures from -40°C to +85°C and in highly challenging shock and vibration environments. The solid storage modules that are supplied with the board provide excellent reliability. They come in a range of capacities from 480GB to 3.8TB each. This means that the board is capable of holding almost 8TB of usable storage capacity based on current generation modules. The storage modules are hardware write protectable and are Opal 2.0 compliant for data at rest protection. The PCIe connection from the expansion plane on the host board offers a read and write throughput that is significantly faster than traditional SATA interface-based storage products.

Jane Annear, Managing Director of Concurrent Technologies, commented: “This new storage product is a perfect fit for Concurrent Technologies vision moving forward. We are seeing more requests for storage solutions mated with our processor products and TR MS7/600 fills a gap in our portfolio for data mobility at the edge by enabling front removeable storage solutions”.
