Enclosures

The E-Series 12-Bay U.2 Enclosures provide a simple, flexible way to test several mixed-protocol SSDs when connected to an OakGate expandable desktop or 3U rackmount appliance. This enclosure allows testing of up to twelve SSDs that use a U.2 (SFF-8639) connector. The SVF Pro software, supplied with the appliance, can exercise each SSD individually, as well as provide built-in power cycling and power measurement capabilities.
