HARD DRIVES FOR 3D TERRAIN DATABASE STORAGE

 

MetaVR offers three devices for 3D terrain database delivery and storage: a direct attached large volume (DALV) device,  a smaller device for terrain of a region, and a terrain server that can service up to twenty-four or more VRSG IGs.

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 (all of CONUS++ and other regions of the world). 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).Terrain storage for a geographic region.

 

NETWORK ATTACHED STORAGE (NAS) FOR MULTI-COMPUTER SIMULATORS

The Terrain Network Attached Storage (NAS) device stores up to 21 TB terrain database tiles for use with VRSG software on a limited number of MetaVR Extreme Desktop System  image generator (IG) systems. The system is designed to provide optimized high bandwidth data throughput over either a 1-Gbit (up to five attached IGs) or 10-Gbit back bone network switch which then connects to any existing 1-Gbit network.

The Terrain Network Attached Storage (NAS) device can serve a cluster of five to ten VRSG IGs and can be modified to support additional IG systems. The Terrain Network Attached Storage (NAS) device is delivered populated with all of MetaVR's round-earth Metadesic (.MDS) 3D terrain (all of CONUS++ and other regions of the world).

Terrain server for multi-computer simulators

The MetaVR Terrain Server is a high-end system which stores up to 31 TB terrain database tiles for use with VRSG IG systems.  The system is designed to provide optimized high bandwidth data throughput over a 10Gbit back bone network switch which then connects to any existing 1Gbit network.

The Terrain Server can service up to twenty-four VRSG IGs and can be modified to support additional IG systems. The Terrain Server is delivered populated with all of MetaVR's round-earth Metadesic (.MDS) 3D terrain (all of CONUS++ and and other regions of the world).

These terrain drives are sold only in conjunction with a MetaVR Virtual Reality Scene Generator (VRSG) or Terrain Tools for Esri ArcGIS software purchase.

You can order these terrain drives preloaded with MetaVR terrain directly from MetaVR by consulting the Rquest for Quotation page.
