Vector Data, a manufacturer of rugged, carrier-grade and custom computing systems, has announced the general availability of the Vault AFF A250, the latest system in its Vault data storage portfolio.
Joining the Vault AFF A800 and others, the new Vault AFF A250 all-flash end-to-end NVMe system offers telcos the highest data storage performance to accelerate their business-critical application needs, the security and reliability to keep customer data highly available and secure, and the simplicity and flexibility that agile organizations require.
Available with -48V DC or 100-240V AC power supplies, the Vault AFF A250 can be deployed at any sites, including central office, edge and RAN. Vault A250 is also available with optional NEBS Level 3, ETSI and ATT-TP-76200 certifications and other global telecom certifications.
