What is the difference between a PetaBox GB series, PetaBox PS series, and Peta Box TB series storage device?
A. PetaBox is the family name for all of our storage products. That is, the GB series, PS series and TB series are all PetaBox technology. The GB series is our flagship product of nearline storage that is an optimum choice for tape-to-disk migration, archival or fixed content storage, backup, and data delivery that is not performance-based. A standard issue GB series storage device includes 4xPATA drives, a VIA low power-consuming M-1000 mainboard, 10/100 Ethernet and support software-based RAID configurations. The PowerStore, like the PetaBox GB series, provides raw storage capacity ranging from 1TB to 3TB in a 1U form factor. But unlike the GB series of nearline storage devices, the PowerStore has been built for performance. Equipped with SATA drives, duo-core processor, GbE, and support for hardware RAID, the PowerStore delivers access and read/write speeds up to 8X faster than the GB series. The PetaBox GB and PS series devices are the basic building blocks of the PetaBox TB series
