The Galleon XSR Rugged NAS offers superior performance in a very small form factor. Removable storage ensures short ground times for airborne applications. Industry standard solid-state drives are used to benefit from the ever-increasing storage densities and cost reductions as the technology evolves.


The XSR NAS is capable of handling a high number of simultaneous connections without compromising system performance. It supports up to 13 Ethernet connections, configurable as 1Gb, 10Gb, 25Gb and 40Gb interfaces on both copper and optical media.


The unit can be delivered with Linux Enterprise Server or FreeNAS SW preconfigured to suit your application needs. An optional FIPS 140-2 validated hardware encryption module provides a high level of data security with flexible key loading options, including physical key tokens through front panel key loading port and remote loading over a secure network connection.


Intel Core i7 and Xeon processor options, including the latest 9th generation, are supported with up to 96GB SDRAM supporting ECC.


The design concept of XSR is based on the use of COTS Open Architecture modules. This enables the XSR to keep pace with increasing technology advancement and provides a key mitigation strategy for Obsolescence Management, which helps to protect the user’s design for 10 years or more. The extremely rugged design makes it ideal for deployed applications in rugged or harsh environments.


Optional FIPS 140-2 and AES-256 hardware encryption provides a high level of data security with flexible key management options, including physical key tokens through front panel key loading port and remote loading over a secure network connection.


Galleon Embedded Computing’s quality management system is certified to Aerospace Standard AS/EN 9100 and ISO 9001.
