CX-6KEX-NAS

6-BAY ENCRYPTED NAS SERVER

The Ciphertex CX-6KEX-NAS server is a rugged, portable, encrypted (hardware based AES 256-bit) data storage solution using RAID technology. Also serving as an IP SAN (iSCSI), our NAS units are built for I/O intensive tasks and essential enterprise applications such as storage, backup, disaster recovery, and virtualization.

The rugged-mobile design of our chassis will enable you to safely and securely transport large data sets between even the most remote locations, faster than cloud transfer speeds currently allow. Our products are able to be transported by hand or shipped by ground or air, withstanding shocks, vibration, humidity, temperature, and altitude changes.

The CX-6KEX-NAS server fits six 3.5” or 2.5” hard drives, or solid-state-drives, with up to 60TB of storage. The rugged design and AES 256-bit hardware based encryption makes the CX-6KEX-NAS the preferred solution for secure networking and data storage.

KEY FEATURES

MAXIMUM SECURITY

The CX-6KEX-NAS integrates a variety of security features such as hardware based AES 256-bit volume-based encryption, encrypted access, antivirus, IP filtering, policy-based automatic IP blocking, advanced RAID configurations, and more. Learn more about RAID>

SCALABLE SOLUTION

Users can gradually expand their total storage up to 1PB by connecting multiple Ciphertex NAS expansion units to address business' growing storage needs without additional setup or maintenance costs.

POWERFUL (1OGbE)

Equipped with a powerful Intel i5-4590s Quad-Core processor, expandable to 16GB DDR3 RAM, and optional 10GbE installation, the CX-6KEX-NAS server is designed with performance in mind and is ideal for both storing and transferring large volumes of data.

GET A HANDLE ON YOUR DATA

Although Ciphertex products are lightweight and compact, every built-in carry handle is made from aluminum-copper alloy and is secured with aluminum PEM fasteners which are made for much heavier loads for a unique and easy transport.

SSD - CACHE & HYBRID STORAGE

SSD caching brings faster I/O which improves business efficiency. Choose and mix between SSDs and HDDs to enable a hybrid storage solution that balances cost and performance.

BUSINESS CONTINUITY & DISASTER RECOVERY

Unplanned disruptions, terrorism, and natural disasters, like earthquake, hurricane, and tornadoes can result in critical data loss that can cripple business. Real-time remote replication (RTRR) with two Ciphertex devices works for scheduled or manual backups in real-time to protect against any disaster your organization may face. Learn more >

RELIABLE, RUGGED, & PORTABLE

The CX-6K-EX NAS server is sent to an environmental test laboratory (DoD Approved) and passed vibration tests, shock test, temperature tests, altitude tests, humidity tests, and much more for a ruggedized product to meet military standards.

VIRTUALIZATION COMPATIBLE

Virtualization enables the CX-6KEX-NAS to support multiple operation systems. With up to 60 TB in a small package, you can easily handle the large capacity of data that comes with virtualization.

ALL-IN-ONE NAS SERVER WITH OVER 60 APPLICATIONS

The CX-4KEX-NAS server is feature-rich with integrated versatile applications for business such as file server, FTP server, printer server, web server, VPN server, Windows AD (Active Directory) and LDAP support and much more. Learn more >
