Rackmount Appliance

The R-Series 3U Rackmount Appliance (OGT-R300) is a robust, versatile test system designed to support all popular storage interfaces and protocols, such as PCIe, SAS, and SATA. As the name implies, the 3U Rackmount Appliance fits in a standard 19-inch rack enclosure at a 3U height.

The 3U Rackmount Appliance is designed to meet the demands for high-density scaling with its six internal backplane PCIe slots (three x16 and three x8). These slots can be used to connect to a variety of external enclosures, such as the OakGate 12-bay U.2 enclosure . They can also be used for "in-appliance" testing," such as testing NVMe add-in cards or connecting to the optional OakGate 4-bay U.2 plug-in modules to test 2.5inch U.2 SSDs.

The 3U Rackmount Appliance is powered by the OakGate Storage Validation Framework Pro (SVF Pro) engine, the industry’s most advanced storage-testing software. The robust SVF Pro software, now in its fourth generation, offers a comprehensive set of testing features and capabilities.3U Rackmount Appliance
