As the demands for capacity expansion explode for IT applications and video surveillance, it is imperative that IT administrators find a cost-effective way to meet performance and expansion goals. The Vess J3000 Series is a robust storage expansion platform that serves as a building block to provide reliability and flexibility in a cost effective package that is simple to administer and meets the demands of your application. The 3U-16 bay Vess J3000 models are fully expandable to meet your needs today and in the future.

Redundant Power Supplies

The Vess J3000 Series is equipped with redundant power supplies. The advantage of power supplies is that should one fail, the other continues to power the subsystem until the faulty one can be replaced. Additionally, the power supplies are hot-swappable, which enables you to leave the subsystem running when you replace the one that failed..

Reduce Power and Cooling Costs

The Vess J3000 series utilize environmentally friendly production methods and materials as well as a high-efficiency design that saves energy. Sporting 80 Plus Gold Certified power supplies delivering up to 90% power efficiency, the Vess J3000 Series improves total cost of ownership by conserving power, reducing heat output and improving cooling costs.

Single System Offering 1PB Raw Capacity for Surveillance Applications

With the latest Vess A6000/A7000 series and Vess J3600 series, it’s now available to deliver 1PB raw capacity with 12/14TB HDD fully populated. Vess A6000 series can directly attach a maximum of 5 JBOD units without an extra RAID head to provide you the best TCO(Total Cost Ownership) for your surveillance projects.

Make your Surveillance Storage Management even Easier

Considering the high surveillance storage demands in certain territories and vertical markets like Banking, Prisons, City Surveillance, Large-Scale system, …etc, the Vess J3600sS paired with Vess A6000 or Vess A7000 is a perfect combination. This potent combination not only delivers an optional cost-effective portfolio to meet the storage performance and expansion goal but also simplifies the management efforts of the entire surveillance storage system via a single web GUI for the Vess A6000/A7000 series.
