StorePak™ and SataPak™ are single slot storage blades 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, while SataPak features SATA connected storage for more simplified architectures with more moderate performance requirements.
