Desktop Appliances

The D-Series Desktop Appliances are versatile test systems designed to support all popular storage interfaces and protocols, such as PCIe, SAS, SATA, and FC. These appliances are perfect for environments inside or outside the lab, where the appliances rest on a bench or a desk, rather than being contained in a rack.

These desktop appliances can be connected to a variety of external enclosures that provide high-density scaling and power management. For an easy way to test mixed-protocol devices, the expandable desktop appliance can be equipped with an optional OakGate 4-bay U.2 plug-in module, which allows testing of up to four SSDs that use a U.2 (SFF-8639) connector.

All desktop appliances include and are driven by OakGate’s SVF engine, the industry’s most advanced storage-testing software. The robust SVF software, now in its third generation, offers a comprehensive set of testing features and capabilities.
