Solid-State Drive

Aug 13, 2012
A solid-state drive (SSD) is a high-performance data storage device that stores data in solid-state flash memory. It stores the CloudBridge software and user data.

Replacing a Solid-State Drive

Replacement solid-state drives (SSDs) contain a pre-installed version of the CloudBridge software.

To replace a Solid-State Drive
  1. Shut down the appliance.
  2. Locate the SSD on the back panel of the appliance. Push the safety latch of the drive cover to the right or down, depending on the platform, while pulling out on the drive handle to disengage. Pull out the faulty drive.
    Note: The illustration in the following figures might not represent the actual CloudBridge appliance.

  3. Verify that the replacement SSD is the correct type for the CloudBridge platform.
  4. Pick up the new SSD, open the drive handle fully to the left, and insert the drive into the slot as far as possible. To seat the drive, close the handle flush with the rear of the appliance so that the drive locks securely into the slot.
    Important: When you insert the drive, make sure that the Citrix product label is at the top if the drive is inserted horizontally or at the right if the drive is inserted vertically.
