Hard Drives for Database Storage

MetaVR offers two devices for 3D terrain database delivery and storage: a direct attached large volume (DALV) device, and a smaller device for terrain of a region.

Direct attached large volume

The HighPoint RocketStor 6114V 4-bay USB-C RAID storage enclosure is a collection of hard drives in a direct attached large volume (DALV) configuration. For optimal performance, this storage device requires a USB 3.1 port for use with a single computer system and is not intended to be networked to multiple devices. For multi-computer simulators, see the MetaVR Terrain Network Attached Storage or MetaVR Terrain Server system.


The DALV device is delivered preloaded with all of MetaVR's round-earth Metadesic (.MDS) 3D terrain (that is, all of CONUS++ and World terrain). The MetaVR 3D content on this DALV terrain drive includes both 3D terrain and cultural features.

The cultural feature models on the terrain are in MetaVR's model format (.HPY) and are accompanied by cultural feature description files (.CLT).

Region terrain drive

The Seagate Backup Plus Desktop drive is for 4 TB terrain database storage. A purchase of this hard drive is delivered preloaded with a region of MetaVR round-earth (Metadesic) 3D terrain. The region terrain is your choice of:

  CONUS++ region Europe
  Africa North America (apart from CONUS++)
  Asia South America
  Australia and Oceania


WD My Book Mirror Edition
The Seagate Backup Plus Desktop drive has 4 TB storage in a 7.063" x 4.650" x 1.634" footprint. This drive has a high-speed USB 3.0 interface.

In addition to the MetaVR terrain, the drive package contains:

- Seagate Backup Plus desktop drive
- 4-foot USB 3.0 cable, power
- Quick start guide
- 2-year limited warranty

You can order these terrain drives preloaded with MetaVR terrain directly from MetaVR. These terrain drives are sold only in conjunction with a MetaVR Virtual Reality Scene Generator (VRSG) or Terrain Tools for Esri ArcGIS software purchase.
