Storage solution was designed into Airtop from day one – together with the electronics and the housing. The thickness of the housing is calculated to allow 4 hard disks, including 15mm ones. The clamshell opening is designed to allow tool-free access to the disk-cartridge and the SSDs underneath.
The Airtop storage design is based on feedback from many Compulab customers in different industry segments including health-care, surveillance, digital signage and POS to name a few.

Airtop storage highlights

  • 6+ storage devices
  • 10 TB+ storage capacity
  • RAID 0/1/5
  • Unique disk cartridge
  • Support for NVMe x4 and SATA III
  • Tool-free access


Airtop has a PCIe x16 slot that can be used for NVMe x4 adapter.

The NVMe device is bootable.

With a fast NVMe SSD Airtop can boot Windows 10 in under 10 seconds (tested with Samsung 960 EVO).

These results were recorded using CrystalDiskMark on Airtop-S i7 running Windows 10 with 1x Samsung 960 EVO 250 GB.


The HDDs / SSDs in the disk cartridge can be configured in RAID using Intel® Rapid Storage Technology

Supported modes:

  • RAID level 0 (Striping)
  • RAID level 1 (Mirroring)
  • RAID level 5 (Striping with parity)
  • RAID level 10 (Striping and mirroring)

These results were recorded using CrystalDiskMark on Airtop-S i7 running Windows 10 with 4x Samsung EVO850 250 GB.

The disk cartridge

Four 2.5″ HDDs / SSDs are mounted in a single HDD cartridge.
Installation of disks is easy:

  • No cables are involved.
  • Press the top-bar to open the housing (tool-free).
  • Unscrew two thumb-screws to release and pull-out the cartridge (tool-free).
  • Install in the cartridge up to 4 HDDs/SSDs at the convenience of your desk.
  • Return the cartridge to its place, tighten the two thumb-screws and close the lid.

The disk cartridge supports the following configurations:

  • 4x 7mm / 9.5mm disks
  • 2x 15mm disks + 2x 7mm / 9.5mm disks

M.2 and mSATA

In addition to the disks cartridge Airtop supports both mSATA and M.2 2280.
Both support SATA 3 6 Gbps rate.

Extending storage further

Airtop storage capabilities do not end with the 6 integrated storage devices above. Airtop is extremely modular and can accomodate additional storage devices. A custom FACE Module with additional PCIe storage devices or SATA devices can be incorporated.
