VessThe Vess J2000 series is a robust storage expansion platform that serves as a building block to provide high-availability and flexibility in a cost effective package that is simple to administer and meets the demands of your application.

Cost-effective Storage Expansion Platform

As the demands for capacity expansion explode for IT applications and video surveillance, it is imperative that IT administrators find a cost-effective way to meet performance and expansion goals. The Vess J2000 series is a robust storage expansion platform that serves as a building block to provide high-availability and flexibility in a cost effective package that is simple to administer and meets the demands of your application. The 3U-16 bay Vess models are fully expandable to meet your needs today and in the future. Up to six additional expansion chassis may be added to each Vess R2000 RAID subsystem, providing expansion for up to 112 drives.

Redundant Power Supplies

The Vess J2000 series are equipped with redundant power supplies. The advantage of N+1 power supplies is that should one fail, the other continues to power the subsystem until the faulty one can be replaced. Additionally, the power supplies are hot-swappable, which enables you to leave the subsystem running when you replace the one that failed.

User Friendly Design

Simplicity and ease of use are absolutely crucial for SMBs. The Vess J2000's user-friendly design features the power button on the front panel. The simple design ensures the user doesn't have to reach behind the system and unplug the power cord or access the management GUI console to turn off the machine; simply turn the machine on and off through the front panel.

Reduce Power and Cooling Costs

The Vess J2000 Series utilizes environmentally friendly production methods and materials as well as a high-efficiency design that saves energy. Featuring 80Plus Bronze Certified power supplies delivering up to 85% power efficiency, the Vess J2000 Series improves total cost of ownership by conserving power, reducing heat output, and improving cooling costs.
