• JBODs, or Just a Bunch of Disks, are storage enclosures that house multiple hard disk drives without combining them into a RAID configuration.
  • They provide a simple and cost-effective way to expand storage capacity by adding individual disks to the storage infrastructure.
  • JBODs are typically used for applications that require large-scale data storage, such as media archiving, data backup, and content repositories.
  • These storage enclosures are often employed in conjunction with software-based storage solutions that manage the individual disks as separate storage volumes.
  • JBODs offer flexibility in terms of storage expansion and can be easily integrated into existing storage environments without the complexity of traditional RAID configurations..
