A 2U rack mount platform, the FW-8892 includes four hot-swappable SATA II hard drive trays along with three replaceable network modules for a combination of up to 24 LAN ports combining GbE copper, fiber and bypass port options. Twelve DIMM sockets support up to 24GB DDR3 memory. High availability features include optional RAID, swappable system fans and redundant 500W power supplies. An optional onboard Cavium Nitrox CN1620 security processor offloads high-level security commands to dramatically increase total system throughput.
