StoreEngine™ VPX

StoreEngine™ VPX is a 3U or 6U VPX (air or conduction cooled) slot storage server which can simultaneously serve block data (like a disk drive or RAID system), serve file data (like a NFS/CIFS file server), and simultaneously operate as a high speed data recorder. StoreEngine is designed to work as a standalone single slot storage device with integrated (optionally removable) SSD storage, or it can work in conjunction with one or more StorePak VPX modules.

StorePak™ VPX

StorePak™ VPX is a single slot storage blade that combine a fixed VPX base unit with a removable and hot-swappable SSD module. The removable drive modules are specifically designed for easy replacement of on-board storage. StorePak features PCIe connected storage, and provides the highest storage performance and scalability.

StorePak™ XMC

StorePak™ XMC is a high density SSD storage XMC module (air or conduction cooled) that hosts up to 12TB of ultra-high performance PCIe connected NVMe SSD storage. Versions are available for standard SBC XMC sites, as well as versions that are optimized to work with Critical I/O’s StoreEngine storage manager blade.


StoreBox™ is an ultra-compact conduction cooled rugged chassis that hosts a StoreEngine module, integrated high-performance I/O interfaces, and up to 30 TB of SSD storage in rugged hot-swappable StorePak SSD modules. StoreBox runs the full StoreEngine storage management software suite, and can operate as a high bandwidth (up to 6 GB/s) data recorder, or as a network file server (NAS).

StorePak™ Data Offload Station

StorePak™ Data Offload Station allows StorePak removable SSD modules to be connected directly to a desktop PC or server for offload of data from the StorePak. The offload station includes a PCIe controller board, cable, a StorePak adapter unit, and offload software.
