Fortinet storage modules extend the capabilities of FortiGate multithreat security systems by adding local storage for security and system event logging. The modules can also enable the WAN optimization function in FortiOS software (v4.0 or later), which accelerate applications commonly affected by slower wide-area network connections.
The FSM-064 module adds 64 gigabytes (GB) of solid-state disk storage capacity to a compatible Fortinet hardware system. Systems equipped with Fortinet Storage Module (FSM) bays can add local storage capacity when needed, with some systems allowing multiple FSM-064 modules and RAID support. Another great benefit of the FSM-064 module is that it adds local storage without the concerns of reducing overall system availability and uptime.
The ASM-S08 module is a single-width AMC form-factor option which cost effectively adds local storage capacity to compatible FortiGate platforms. The ASM-S08 features an 80GB commercialgrade hard disk drive.
