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.
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.
|DUT TYPE||MAXIMUM NUMBER OF DUTs||POWER CYCLING & MEASUREMENT||REQUIRED OAKGATE PRODUCTS|
|PCIe Edge Cards||6 In-Chassis||-||None|
|6 In-Chassis||Yes||PCIe Power Interposer Cards|
|2.5" NVMe SSDs Using a U.2 Connector||4 In-Chassis||-||(with third party PCIe backplane adapter)|
|4 or 8 In-Chassis*||Yes||One or Two 4-Bay U.2 Plug-In Modules*|
|12 External||Yes||12-Bay NVMe U.2 Enclosure|
|2.5" SAS/SATA SSDs Using a U.2 Connector||4 External||-||SAS/SATA HBA + third party SAS/SATA fan-out cable|
|4 or 8 In-Chassis||Yes||One or Two 4-Bay Multi-Protocol U.2 Plug-In Module|
|12 External||Yes||12-Bay SAS/SATA U.2 Enclosure|
* The following figure shows a 3U rackmount appliance with two 4-bay U.2 plug-in modules. Each module can test up to four U.2/SFF-8639 SSDs.
