Tranquil PC today announced the SQA SuperStor, which is a Windows Home Server capable of being expanded to support 20x 2TB HDDs, so if you want to store 40,000GB if data you can!
In response to many requests to expand the SQA past the 10x HDD* limit, Tranquil launches the SuperStor.
( * not incl USB ports)
Do you have a large media collection? The SQA SuperStor is possibly the world’s largest non-industrial digital storage appliance when coupled with suitable HDD housings, i.e. the SQA-Ex – servicing up to 40TB (40,000GB) of data capacity !
That’s approx 9000 DVDs or 60,000 CDs (or approx 12,000,000 MP files)
Available to order now, shipping from 12th April 2010.
Special Introductory Offer save £40.00
2GB Memory (upgradeable)
Dual core D510 Intel CPU
1TB Low Power / Low noise HDD
4x spare HDD slots
Server recovery pack
3x eSATA ports – all supporting Port Multiplier* (i.e. 5x HDDs can be added to each eSATA port)
3 year warranty
*Port multiplier technology allows you to connect a single eSATA cable from the host (SQA SuperStor) to the slave (the SQA-Ex). Each drive inserted into the slave unit can be seen and accessed as if it was locally connected. There is no evidence of reduction of data flow when using this technology. Other port multiplier housing can be used but check that the box supports the Silicon Image Port Multiplier Technology, the SQA-Ex is possibly the best choice, not only does it look similar the SQA-SuperStor, but the HDD bays are all tool-less as they are on the SQA-SuperStor
