The removable mSATA carrier tray on the AMC635 allows all drives to be removed together, supporting applications where large amounts of data need to be physically moved from one equipment to another, or where sensitive (e.g. classified) data must be removed from a system. The unit is fully compatible with the AMC629 RAID controller so can support fault tolerant storage.
Multiple AMC635 units can be ‘daisy chained’ within a system (depending on backplane capabilities) supporting large scale storage systems. The on-board expander enables 12 Gbps aggregate performance with 6 Gbps (SATA) devices. It includes an integrated ARM Cortex-R4 processor for topology management functions for efficiency.
The AMC635 is available in both air-cooled (MTCA.0 and MTCA.1) and rugged conduction cooled(MTCA.2 or MTCA.3) versions.
