Rackmount Appliances

The R-Series 3U Rackmount Appliances are robust, versatile test systems designed to support all popular storage interfaces and protocols, such as PCIe, SAS, and SATA. These appliances are used to validate and debug U.2, U.3, and EDSFF 1U 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 3U Rackmount Appliance fits in a standard 19-inch rack enclosure at a 3U height. 3U Rackmount Appliances

    3U Rackmount Appliance for PCIe Gen4

    (OGT-R300-G4)

    The R-Series 3U Rackmount Appliance for PCIe Gen4 is a robust, versatile test system designed to test and debug solid state drives (SSDs) of 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 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 OGT-R300-G4 is designed to meet the demands for high-density scaling with its seven internal motherboard PCIe slots (four Gen4 x16, one Gen4 x8, and two shared Gen3 (two at x8 and x8 or two at x16 and x0)). These slots can be used as expansion slots to connect to a variety of external enclosures, such as the OakGate 12-bay enclosures that test U.2, U.3, or EDSFF 1U SSDs. The slots can also be used for "in-appliance" testing, such as testing NVMe add-in cards or connecting to the optional OakGate 4-bay plug-in modules to test U.2, U.3, or EDSFF 1U short SSDs. The following figure shows the appliance equipped with an OakGate 4-Bay U.2 Plug-In Module and OakGate 4-Bay EDSFF 1U Short Plug-In Module to test U.2 and EDSFF 1U short SSDs, respectively.3U Rackmount Appliance for PCIe Gen4
