VTrak D5000 Series

Simplify Your Storage Environment

Accelerate Your Business

VTrak D5000 enables data driven business with an integrated combination of high-performance hardware, adaptive storage software, and flexible protocols at an affordable price. The platform is optimized for high bandwidth and low latency which makes it a perfect storage solution for mid-tier IT applications, surveillance, backup, and running multiple mixed workloads.


Unlock Power of Flash Cache

Flash Cache accelerated VTrak D5000 storage systems deliver impressive performance, boosting throughput and lowering latency. User has option to add Flash Cache for read and write acceleration. PROMISE intelligent data caching automatically promotes hot data to cache in real time, so you get the full benefit of flash performance.


Not just for IT, Optimized for Video Application Environments

The Promise VTrak D5000 is optimized for 10Gb Ethernet via SMB/NFS protocols for large file data ingesting, streaming, or processing between the VTrak D5000 NAS storage appliance and its clients. Data can also be directly transferred between the VTrak D5000 appliance and clients over the SAN via iSCSI/Fibre Channel network. This means higher bandwidth performance and lower latency data transfers, perfect for Media & Entertainment, HPC applications, and other video-centric environments. In addition the VTrak D5000 supports Open Directory and Active Directory making it fully integrateable into your existing networking environment.



Edit & play back compressed video faster

A faster processor, 10Gb Ethernet ports, and more memory is just the beginning. Enhanced cached mirroring design, auto-regeneration of data to mitigate frame drops and optimized disk access all add up to blazing performance for broadcast and editing environments. The VTrak D5000 Series optimizes performance to enable media professionals to increase productivity by allowing efficient processing of compressed video, delivering best-in-class performance and reliability.



Scalable, Reliable and Cost-efficient

With VTrak D5000 you can “pay as you grow” from 64 Tera Bytes to Peta Bytes for long-term storage investment protection. Perfect not only for compressed video workflow environments but ideal for low cost backup/archive applications. Additionally, VTrak D5000 series comes with high-availability dual controllers, hot-swappable modular disk array, and a 3 year 24x7 technical support, with next business day on-site parts replacement warranty. Expansion units can start from 2u24 small form factor to large form factor 2u12, 3u16, 4U24 and up to the high density 4u60 JBOD expansion options. The VTrak D5000 is the most affordable Enterprise storage solution starting as low as $60 per terabytes plus additional savings from less cooling, less rack space and energy costs.
