Up to 64TB Capacity in a Small Durable Package

Supporting up to four hot-swappable 3.5” HDDs or four 2.5” SSDs and up to two internal 2.5” SSDs, the CX-4K Secure NAS is a high-capacity, rugged, and reliable enterprise NAS powered by an Intel® Xeon® D (4, 8, or 16 Core) processor. Built-in 8 Intel® AES-NI provides integrated support to enable fast and secure data encryption and decryption for a wide range of cryptographic applications, such as bulk encryption/decryption, authentication, random number generation, and authenticated encryption, providing strong security while also reducing latency. Designed to optimize enterprise IT infrastructure, the Ciphertex CX-4K Secure NAS comes with two PCIe slots that support 10GbE and 40GbE interfaces, PCIe SSD, as well as graphic cards. Incorporating security and scalability, the CX-4K Secure NAS presents an ideal choice for a complete business-ready storage solution with cross-platform file sharing, comprehensive backup and disaster recovery, iSCSI & virtualization, and many other business applications. The CX-4K Secure NAS’s rugged enclosure ensures military-grade durability. For additional security, this system also includes a FIPS 140-2 (Level 3) certified Encryption Key that can be used for locking and unlocking encrypted volumes.
