Rackmount Appliances

The R-Series Rackmount Appliances are versatile test systems designed to support all popular storage interfaces and protocols, such as PCIe, SAS, SATA, and FC. As the name implies, the rackmount appliances fit in a standard 19-in rack enclosure at 1U, 2U, and 3U heights.

These appliances are designed to meet the demands for high-density scaling with their PCIe expansion slots, which can connect to a variety of external enclosures. The 2U and 3U appliances include several embedded device slots/bays for "in-appliance" testing. All applicances include the ability for power management.

All rackmount 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.

2U Rackmount Appliance

The 2U Rackmount Appliance provides a powerful SAS/SATA testing platform. It features 24 front-panel-accessible drive bays for 2.5" 6G SAS/SATA devices. In addition to the three PCIe Gen3 x8 slots for the internal SAS/SATA devices, it also provides three additional PCIe Gen3 x16 expansion slots for high-density scaling.

  • Dimensions of chassis: 16.9" W × 3.5" (2U) H × 26" D
  • Intel Xeon dual-socket, hex-core processor, 3.50 GHz
  • 24GB DDR4 ECC system memory
  • 24 embedded 2.5-inch drive bays supporting 6Gbps SAS/SATA drives
  • Three PCIe Gen3 x8 slots to connect up to 24 internal SAS/SATA devices
  • Three PCIe Gen3 x16 slots for expansion
  • Driven by the OakGate SVF engine
  • One-year hardware/software support
3U Rackmount Appliance
(OGT-R300)
3U Rackmount Appliance

The 3U Rackmount Appliance is a versatile and powerful storage testing platform. It includes six PCIe Gen3 slots (three x16 and three x8) which can test several DUTs internally or be used as expansion slots for high-density scaling. It can also be equipped with one or two optional 4-bay U.2 plug-in modules that provide integrated power management.

  • Dimensions of chassis: 16.9" W × 1.75" (1U) H × 17" D
  • Intel Xeon dual-socket, hex-core processor, 3.50 GHz
  • 48GB DDR4 ECC system memory
  • Six PCIe Gen3 expansion slots (three x16 and three x8)
  • Provides support for up to two 4-bay U.2 plug-in modules
  • Driven by the OakGate SVF engine
  • One-year hardware/software support

Popular Rackmount Appliances Configurations

The rackmount appliances can be configured in numerous ways depending on your requirements for the DUT type (protocol and form factor), number of DUTs to test, power measurement and control, and so on. To make configuration concepts easier, the following table shows some common examples of configurations with the rackmount appliances and additional OakGate products (add-ons and enclosures), if applicable.
