Data security is a key component to any mass storage application and has been brought to the general public’s awareness. For deployed military applications, data security has always been a concern and this data storage device helps make data-at-rest security more efficient and affordable, Phoenix officials say.

The Phoenix RPC24 4004 series data storage system has self-encrypting drive (SED) technology, with TCG compliant and FIPS 140-2 certified AES 256 encryption and instant secure erase when configured with solid state disks and hard disk drives with these capabilities.

The drive has configurations for 2.5-inch solid-state drives and 2.5-inch hard disk drives. Featuring a storage capacity of at least 50 terabytes, the RPC24 4004 series includes two removable magazines containing as many as 12 solid state disk or hard disk drives.

Phoenix International's incorporated SimulCache technology leverages redundant RAID controllers to eliminate the performance degradation of conventional cache mirroring. A dedicated PCI-Express bus streamlines write performance and minimizes downtime and data loss.
