Saitech, Inc. and MIT Lincoln Laboratory collaborated as part of this measurement campaign for a new, redundant, data storage array and real-time processing capability was required at the Labs. The 2460 sensor system operates in a high bandwidth data recording mode under 24/7 operation. This necessitates a significant data recording capacity – specifically in excess of 600TB usable for this field measurement. With these measurement campaigns being an on-going test series, data density – the physical rack space consumed by all of these disk drives – becomes a concern.
After an extensive product survey, MIT Lincoln Lab has identified the HGST/Western Digital Data60 JBOD enclosure fully populated with 60x14TB self-encrypting hard drives as the only product solution that satisfies their requirements for this system.
After upon review, Saitech Inc. has won this contract because of its extensive relationships and experience we were glad to provide a cost-effective approach for MIT Lincoln Laboratory on their data-rich analysis and research project.
