TuffServ 640 Ten Gigabit Recorder / Server

One Gigabyte of Usable Payload Every Second, for Hours on End

  • More than 1000MB/s read or write throughput
  • Storage of 4 to 32TB and up
  • Dual 10GigE Optical Interfaces
  • Multiple Expansion sites for additional I/O
  • Standards Based: VPX, XMC and commodity SSDs
  • Maximum Capacity in excess of 80TB
  • Internal Architecture provides 8GB/s bandwidth throughout
  • Built for Rugged, MIL-STD-810 environments with MIL-STD power and MIL-STD connectors

Designed with a scalable architecture, the recorder / reproducer supports a range of applications, from vehicle and weapons testing to intelligence gathering.

Designed for Speed

Uncompromising performance, unmatched expandability: the TuffServ 640 delivers well over 1000 Megabytes per second of write throughput for hours, with read performance that saturates a 10 gigabit Ethernet link. That performance is delivered over NFS, after all the network and protocol overhead is accommodated.

Designed for Capacity

Writing data at over 1000MB/s requires huge amounts of storage: nearly 4 terabytes per hour, every hour. The TS 640 has a high capacity Removable Storage Array (RSA-2) that comfortably supports up to 32TB of storage now, with an option for 80TB. Each RSA-2 contains two storage controllers and up to 16 solid-state devices; 256 bit AES encryption is available on request.

Designed For Growth

Everything in the TS 640 has been designed to provide a flexible platform for current and future requirements. The interface between the system components including the RSA-2 storage module runs at a massive 8000MB/s, so as the storage price/performance curve shifts, so can the TS 640’s. Internal XMC and two miniPCIe slots provide opportunities to expand and adapt the platform for new or unique requirements, as well as provide options such as MIL-STD-1553 control and GPS time synchronization.

Designed For Control

In addition to the standard dual 10 gigabit/s optical Ethernet interfaces, the TS 640 offers a standard gigabit Ethernet connection for lower bandwidth tasks, and a 100Base-T Ethernet for control and monitoring. Serial ports are also available, as are GPIO signals for embedded applications, such as unmanned vehicles and pods.

Designed For Use

The TS 640 is a truly open system, running mainstream COTS software, including the AMPEX TuffServ recording application; it can also capture raw 10 gigabit Ethernet at line rate. This architecture delivers a solution that is accessible to third-party developers, so that application-specific software can be added to the system by integrators and/or end users.

Information assurance and cyber threat prevention strategies are available on the TuffServ platform, facilitating its acceptance in critical or sensitive environments.
