Lower capacity hard drives are available for reduced space requirements and future scalability. The chassis, eRacks/4U-72RHD, is 35 inches deep and holds 72 3.5-inch drives bays, stacked 2-deep in 36 removable bays.

Various configurations of Dual-Xeon, Dual-Epyc, or single-CPU solutions are available – we can even configure a single-CPU Ryzen config – With ECC! Which is amazingly powerful – This has been ove of our highest-demand configs, lately.

eRacks/NAS72 starter configuration is partially populated with lower capacity hard drives, which offers more affordable pricing options to eRacks Systems customers, and a more accessible entry level.

“The 12-to-18-Terabyte drives are the ‘Sweet spot’ of $/TB as of mid-2023, yielding over a full Petabye of raw storage – The 22 Terabyte hard drives may be considerably more expensive than lower capacity drives. They may not be the ‘sweet spot’ of cost per Terabyte, but for those users who need every available Terabyte, these drives are certainly an option. Dream big! And we will provide you with storage for your dreams!”
