CX-5KEX Overview

Portable 5-Bay Encrypted (Optional) NAS Server

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. Fits five 2.5” or 3.5” hard drives, or solid-state-drives, with up to 50TB of storage. The rugged design and AES 256-bit hardware based encryption makes the CX-5KEX NAS the preferred solution for secure networking and data storage.
