Observer GigaStor Calculator

Use the Observer GigaStor Calculator to determine your storage needs. Based upon the average utilization you expect the GigaStor to receive, the calculator will estimate how many days and hours of data your GigaStor will hold.

Note: GigaStor can access the network via SPAN/Mirror ports, TAPs, and aggregation tools. Using full-duplex TAPs requires two ports on the GigaStor. For exact sizing and pricing info, please contact us.
