Promise VTrak J5960 High Density 4U 60 Bay JBOD

A JBOD with Green DNA

VTrak J5960 continues our record of using green technologies, incorporating green design (such as tiered power management), green production methods, and a commitment to environmental protection. In addition to green design, VTrak J5960 PSUs are certified 80 Plus Platinum and Energy Star Ready for high power conversion efficiency at different loads: 91% efficiency for 20% loads, 94% efficiency for 50% loads, and 91% efficiency for 100% loads.

High-Density Storage,Expansion up to 8 Petabytes

The VTrak J5960 high-density SAS enterprise JBOD storage solution balances high performance and high capacity in a robust, quiet, energy efficient, cool running system. Each unit supports a Petabyte of storage capacity in a compact form factor with scalability potential to over 8 Petabytes per 8-unit cascade. To meet demand rapidly increasing demand for very high capacity storage, VTrak J5960 provides extremely high density.

The 60-HDD slot chassis creates a potential capacity of one Petabyte per unit using 18TB HDDs. Up to eight 4U60 JBOD enclosures can be cascaded, a total eight Petabytes of raw capacity. The SAS zoning feature enables simultaneous sharing of the giant JBOD storage enclosure among multiple connected server nodes.

VTrak J5960 features fully redundant I/O modules, power supplies, and cooling units – in an all hot-swappable design – for constant high availability in enterprise environments, even in the event of component failure.

Optimized for High-Performance Datacenter

The VTrak J5960 is a designed for enterprise environments that require very large capacity, high bandwidth and high speed. VTrak J5960 features six external 12Gb/s SAS ports per input/output (I/O) module; a total of twelve 12Gb/s SAS ports on each dual I/O module chassis, delivering the extremely high performance required for modern data centers.

Optimized for high-speed computing applications, cloud platforms and enterprise applications with up to 15 GB/s aggregate transfer rate with 60 HDDs for heavy workload scenarios.


The cable-less innovative mechanical design of the VTrak J5960 enclosure and sliding rail system make it easy to service and maintain. The compact enclosure depth of 666 mm is ideal for data center equipment racks of 1000 mm depth. It features a sliding top and sturdy sliding rail system that enables easy access to all HDDs and the interior while remaining safely mounted in the rack.

SAS IO modules are accessible for replacement from the front while SAS data ports remain at the back for host connectivity. The VTrak J5960 is unbeatable when it comes to physical maintenance of the system and accessibility of components.
