Take your Genesis to the next level
The fully integrated Genesis solution provides industry-leading technology and capabilities, such as complete software-based repair & refurbishment, to provide the highest possible yield. Now with GenesisXP, you can expand your Genesis infrastructure to attach your Disk Enclosures for HDD/SSD Test, Erasure & Grading.
Drives that either fail GenesisXP or pass as Grade B or C may be recoverable to Grade A status through Genesis repair; a notification will be displayed for drives that may be suitable.
All Genesis Systems (8, 16, 32, 64 & 96-Port) are compatible with GenesisXP. The XP solution is connected through a dedicated Server with four SAS/SATA (SAS 3G/6G/12G) outputs to connect to your chosen Disk Enclosures. The Server can be installed neatly in your Genesis system or externally in your Disk Enclosure cabinet. GenesisXP is compatible with all the leading enclosure vendors, except IBM StorWize.

Integrated Solution & GUI
GenesisXP integrates into the Genesis GUI/Touch-Screen, so there is no need for any additional displays. You can toggle through the enclosures to view individual drives on test. Drives tested/erased on GenesisXP is managed via the Ultratest web portal.
Regardless of the size of your Genesis, with GenesisXP you can licence additional Disk Enclosure by the number of concurrently active ports; 32, 64, 96 or 120+. You are able to attach more than the licensed number of ports, but only the licenced amount will function concurrently. We permit in excess of 120 drives to run, however you may see a degradation in performance, so we would advise running additional GenesisXP servers to retain the highest possible speed.
