You probably clicked on this blog because you may be confused about whether to install a Disk Array (JBOD) or a Server Storage solution for your business.
To clarify, JBOD’s are used to add storage to an existing server and can scale to hundreds of disks, while a storage server is the combination of a server and storage in a single system.
There are two main types of JBOD Server Storage Solutions
Top loading storage offers the maximum capacity with minimum space usage.Key features are that they are capacity and density maximized, are easy to service and deploy. For example, a 4U top loading JBOD can hold up to 90 x 3.5 or 2.5” drives.
A General Purpose has similar operating features compared to the Top Loading JBOD, however, a 4U Storage server can only hold up to 36 drives.
Pricing is the biggest factor for businesses in choosing a storage solution, as it allows for larger density and a reduction of rack space.
