JUST A BUNCH OF DISKS (JBOD) and then some (up to 88TB of expansion storage) Ciphertex CX-40KHD JBOD is an expansion unit designed for the SecureNAS Series. JBOD units increase capacity and efficiency at a cost significantly less than NAS systems because they do not contain a motherboard and other expensive components. Drive pools and settings can be configured from the SecureNAS’s web interface, providing additional storage options for companies that need to store data at rest or in transit. For example, when JBOD is connected to SecureNAS CX-160KHD-X (16-bay), the total capacity is 400TB, or almost one half of a petabyte.

All SecureNAS systems can connect to multiple 4- and 8-bay JBODs to increase the NAS’s overall capacity. CX-JBODs may also be used as direct attached storage (DAS) solution for local backup.

The enclosure ensures military-grade durability and transportability.
