OakGate Test, Validation & Benchmarking Systems offer the industry’s most comprehensive set of features and capabilities and are designed expressly for the emerging flash based storage, including Solid State Drives (SSDs). These systems support all popular storage interfaces and are available in Desktop and Rack-mount versions. Based on industry standard Linux server platform and OakGate’s proprietary software, these systems are available as turnkey, ready-to-use appliances.

OakGate’s PCIe Rack-mount system uses a standard 3U chassis form factor. It can accommodate up to six optional cable adapter cards that can be connected to optional external enclosures. Designed to work with the customer’s existing block level storage driver or drivers based on industry standard protocols such as NVMe and AHCI, OakGate’s PCIe Systems leverage the company’s proven, second generation software architecture that is common across all OakGate products.
