ORANGE, Calif., 7 March 2016. Phoenix International Systems Inc. in Orange, Calif., is introducing self-encrypting drive (SED) technology support for its RPC24 4004 series drive magazine-based, rugged data storage solution.

The Phoenix International RPC24 4004 series supports TCG-compliant and FIPS 140-2 certified AES 256 encryption as well as instant secure erase when configured with solid state disks and hard disk drives with these capabilities.

The Phoenix International RPC 4004 series is available in configurations for 2.5-inch SSDs and 2.5-inch HDDs. Each RPC24 converged interface storage array includes two four-port controllers and can be configured in the field with eight 16-gigabit Fibre Channel ports, eight 10-gigabit iSCSI ports, or a combination of four 16-gigabit Fibre Channel and four 10-gigabit iSCSI ports.

These storage arrays are backward-compatible with 8-gigabit/4-gigabit Fibre Channel and 1-gigabit iSCSI networking such as switches and host bus adapters. The RPC24 4004 12-gigabit SAS models are backward-compatible with 6-gigabit SAS investments. All 4004 models are meta-data compatible with previous generation RPC24 arrays, so that customers can accomplish data-in-place migration by simply upgrading to 4004 generation controllers.
