Expansion / Archive

JBOD or NAS device are two of the simplest ways to increase storage capacity. By either connecting directly to a server or adding onto the network, additional storage can swiftly be realised for organisations of all sizes - from simple desktop NAS offerings to rack mounted scalable solutions.


High Performance

For expansion of GPU-accelerated servers, high performance storage systems are needed. Utilising all-flash technology, in the shape of NVMe SSDs to deliver maximum performance with minimal latency, these devices offer scalable options when speed is of the essence.


Data Management

Larger organisations will have evolved vast storage requirements, but typically only a small proportion is needed on a day-to-day basis. Complete data management solutions allow tiering of your data and offer the ability to dynamically provision it into NVMe SSD for fast access, SSD for regular use, or HDD for archive storage - either on premise or in the cloud.

3xs storage

3XS Systems Storage Solutions

In partnership with Synology and QNAP, our 3XS Systems team builds desktop and rackmount storage appliances to suit every budget and business. Storage appliances are professionally built in our state-of-the-art 3XS Lab where each system undergoes an 8-stage build process including a 24-hour burn test and 88-point QC check. Storage servers can be configured with either single or dual CPU options, SSD or HDD including M.2 slots, NVMe SSDs for fast caching and dozens of hot-swap bays for huge scalability.

quantum tape

Tape Solutions

Backing-up data using HDDs and SSDs or cloud storage isn’t practical as the cost quickly spirals out of control. In addition, even the best server HDDs and SSDs only have six years warranty. In contrast, despite its slow performance, tape remains the best format for backup as it offers much lower cost per terabyte and most tapes are typically rated for up to 30 years.
