The HDD option contains four 250 GB or 750 GB 2.5 in. laptop SATA II hard drives for a total storage capacity of 1 TB or 3 TB, respectively. The SSD option contains four 300 GB high-performance SSDs for a total storage capacity of 1.2 TB. The HDD options can sustain a data rate of 200 MB/s for 80 percent of their storage space while reading or writing data. The SSD option is capable of sustaining data rates of 700 MB/s while reading and 400 MB/s while writing data for the entire 1.2 TB storage capacity.

The NI 8260 supports two configurations: JBOD or RAID-0. RAID-0 provides the highest performance for streaming data to and from disk.

You can use this module to not only stream high-speed data but also easily move data between multiple test setups or supplement the PXI system controller’s storage capacity.
