Coraid is a software-only product and therefore imposes no capacity restrictions.
Storage capacity is determined by disk choice, and users can upgrade to a larger disk
capacity as they become available with no additional software cost.
JBOD or RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, or 10 with multiple automatic global spares.
Disks inside the Coraid storage appliance can be accessed individually (JBOD) or aggregated into one or more RAID LUNs.
Simple Command Line Interface (CLI) enables administrators to provision, configure, and
monitor Coraid SRX storage appliances.
