is a package consisting of a Mercury Rack Pro 4 Bay 1U Rack Storage Solution and (4) 2TB 3.5" Enterprise Hard Drives.
The Mercury Rack Pro 4 Bay 1U Rack Storage Solution is a four-bay external mini-SAS hard drive enclosure configured as four independent hard drives. While it offers a maximum capacity of 12 TB, allowing for 3.0 TB per hard drive, in this
configuration, the total capacity is 8.0 TB (4x 2.0 TB HDDs). There is support for RAID and JBOD. The Rack Pro features a single external mini-SAS interface, which reduces cable clutter and provides four full channels of data--one per drive--through one external mini-SAS cable. The Rack Pro is specifically designed to meet the demands of server, audio production and video production environments. It provides data transfer rates of up to 24 Gb/s, depending on selected drives, RAID setting, and external mini SAS-equipped SAS or SATA card. The Mercury Rack Pro offers plug-and-play simplicity.
