Departmental File & Data Server with the FREDC Pedigree

The FREDC Workgroup Server is built upon the proven technology of the FREDC Data Center. At the heart of each system is a FREDC Server-RM™ module. An Intel® Xeon® W5-3435X 16 core (4.7GHz boost) CPUs power an OpenSuse LEAP operating system. Tuned for superb performance, the FREDC Workgroup Server provides the file and data sharing that forensic departments need - without the hassles of managing a traditional server environment.

The FREDC Workgroup Server may be ordered with a Quantum LTO-8 tape library for user and case data archival. Netvault backup software is included for regular system backups and long-term archival of forensic data to tape.

High Capacity Fault-Tolerant, Local Storage

The base FREDC WS ships standard with ten (10) internal 18 TB hard-drives providing a maximum raw data storage capacity of 180 TBs. Accounting for network backup space and RAID6 striping, a total of 139 TB of fault-tolerant data storage is available. Need more storage? The FREDC WS has capacity to add one (1) FREDC RAID-RM™ module. With the optional RAID-RM, the total FREDC WS data capacity is 612TB raw, 486 TB RAID6 striped.

Connect Up To 24 Forensic Workstations & Other Devices

The FREDC Workgroup Server includes a 10GbE 24-port network switch with 24-port patch panel providing ample physical connections for a moderately sized forensic department. Whether it’s forensic workstations, network printers, or other network enabled forensic devices (such as forensic imagers) our proven network infrastructure will provide the performance and stability you need.
