Testing Chambers

The facility houses several large chambers used to test hardware components such as solid state drives, I/O boards, modules and storage processors. The chambers conduct tests around vibrations, voltage and temperature changes ranging from 14 degrees to 130 degrees. "You can take something that might fail two years from now and you pull it out, or you find the defect that the supplier may have missed that we can go search for. We do all that testing here," said Osborne. The entire process typically takes 24 to 48 hours.
