The flexible CNS2-FC supports Network File Server (NFS), Common Internet File System (CIFS), File Transfer Protocol (FTP), Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), Fibre Channel (FC), and Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) protocols making it ideal for sharing critical data in a deployed network. The CNS2-FC is a modular system that consists of the 1/2 ATR CNS2-FC chassis and one or two, second generation, Flash Storage Modules (FSM-2) that plug into the CNS2-FC backplane with 100k insertion cycle connectors. Without any tools, the FSM-2 modules are easily removed from the CNS2-FC chassis for transport to a ground station. This rugged NAS/FC/iSCSI solution is designed for use in a broad range of both manned and unmanned ground, air, and sea vehicles.

The CNS2-FC stores data on the two removable FSM-2 modules. With 1.9 TB of usable storage space each, the FSM-2 can securely store large amounts of data on long missions. The FSM-2 modules are easily removed even for pilots wearing gloves. The FIPS 140-2 validated AES256-bit encryptors are designed to protect your sensitive data-at-rest whether in operation or in transport.

Fibre Channel Target Drive with FIPS 140-2 Encryption

The CNS2-FC is configured with two FC ports. These front panel connections support 1 or 2 Gbps FC protocol. Configured as an FC target drive, the CNS2-FC responds to standard FC storage commands just like any FC disk. Mission computers can count on the CNS2-FC to operate in rugged deployed applications as both a NAS and as a FC target drive. The FSM-2 solid state storage is easily partitioned between FC (block) and NAS (file) data. With a special command, the partition can be moved to change the percent available to each function.
