Supporting Secure and Reliable Data Storage for a Ugandan Children’s Charity
Many of us are lucky enough to have had access to free education, benefiting from that on a daily basis as we pursue our careers and follow our dreams.

Lab Report: AIC 78-Bay Dual Expander JBOD J4078-01
4U top-loading chassis are growing in popularity for storage solutions as they offer the highest density for packing 3.5“ Enterprise Capacity HDDs. Models with 60 drive bays have been used for a while, but now models with more than 100 slots are available. One common problem is that many chassis for more than 60 drives are very long (sometimes more than 1 meter) and unable to fit into existing racks.
