Features & Benefits

BTO Reference Model

As the manager or operator of a data center, it is important to maintain tight control over costs while providing the maximum uptime for your customers. For that reason, AIC has developed the RSC-3M, a 3U 32-Bay storage server chassis. It enables data center services companies that run object storage applications a more efficient and economical solution. If you run Hadoop or Ceph, the RSC-3M is designed to provide dynamic amounts of computing power and abundant storage space at the same time to meet shifting application requirements. The tool-less design makes installation and maintenance quick and easy. Rubbers on the drive tray and silicon gaskets protect against vibrations. Its high-density, space-saving design saves you money. Its drives can be hot swapped at a moment’s notice, resulting in less downtime. Even though RSC-3M was initially designed for data centers, the aforementioned features make it a good solution for media production as well.  (Power supply is included. Motherboard is not included.)
