FREMONT, Calif. USA, June 29, 2019 – BiTMICRO Networks, Inc., a Silicon Valley technology innovator, announces ACUMEN Scalable Secure Network Storage Node. This cutting edge BiTMICRO ACUMEN Node is armed with AES-256 encryption to protect stored sensitive and classified data against unauthorized access. Designed with lightweight, compact and military-grade features, ACUMEN Node addresses the rugged, ultra-low SWaP network storage requirements of avionics, aerospace, telemetry, unmanned aerial and ground vehicles (UAV/UGV). It also addresses the similar requirements of aerospace command, control, communication, computer, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) applications.
Each ACUMEN Node comes with dual 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports for low latency transfers while functioning as a file-based NAS or as a block-based (iSCSI or NVMe/TCP) storage device. Built with a rugged, ultra-low SWaP chassis, ACUMEN Node easily transports between two locations. Network-pluggable and configurable with a USB port, ACUMEN Nodes deploy in remote locations with or without network access.
ACUMEN Node implements “bare-metal” encryption in the lowest granularity to secure data at rest and to protect it from external threats. The optional Power over Ethernet feature enables a single connection port used for power and data suited for space-constrained platforms. This powerful ACUMEN Node boasts of its capability to withstand and operate in physically hostile environments and offers up to 4TB of solid state storage capacity.
“We are seeing a growing demand for compact, lightweight data storage for space-constrained platforms or field-deployed systems requiring a high security level on data at rest for defense and other government organizations.” Stephen R. Uriarte, BiTMICRO President, said: “Responding to this need gives us the stronger position to work closely with our customers while further enhancing the ACUMEN Scalable Secure Network Storage Node as the product of choice for rugged, ultra-low SWaP flash memory storage platform with embedded encryption.” Uriarte concluded: “Our agile product development approach and our customer-driven culture enhance our ability to deliver highly dependable and innovative flash memory storage solutions to the US Department of Defense and to other military organizations.
