The Nucleus Capture 16X3 is a customizable, reliable, high-throughput platform for data recording. Key features that differentiate this from other platforms are massive storage capacity (in the form of 16 front-access 3.5” hard drives), and deep customization options (including proprietary IO modules and custom branding).

True to NextComputing’s architecture, the Nucleus Capture 16X3 also features high-performance multi-core processing, near limitless expandability, and additional services such as configuration management and integration.

The Nucleus Capture 16X3 enables very high sustained write-to-disk rates for capturing network traffic at full 10Gb/s line rate or higher, while flexible I/O provides future expansion to faster interfaces such as 40G and 100G Ethernet.
