The AccuRAID AR316F8R 3U 16-Bay 6G SAS/SATA RAID 6 Array from Sans Digital is a redundant controller rack-mountable RAID solution designed for data centers, file servers, backup, audio/video streaming, and digital video recording. With redundant components including a controller, cooling fans, and power supply, it provides a high-availability solution for mission-critical applications. With a capacity of up to 48TB, this array is perfect for any application that requires a high volume storage solution. With an eight channel high-performance Fibre Channel (4 channels per controller) host interface and cutting edge SAS and SATA dual hard drive support, the device delivers 8 Gb/s performance per channel. You can flexibly choose between high-performance SAS drives or cost-effective / high capacity SATA drives (SATA drives required for an optional MUX board).

With SAS expander support, the device is capable of up to 336TB of capacity with additional AS316X6R JBOD expansion units. The feature-rich array allows you to configure the unit to suit current demands and expand later when needed. The array utilizes sixteen hot-swappable 3.5" trays with 2.5" screw holes for 3.5" and 2.5" SAS/SATA/SSD drives, allowing for quick replacement and simple troubleshooting. The AccuRAID subsystem can also be easily scaled to RAID levels 0, 1, 0+1, 3, 5, 6, 30, 50, 60, or JBOD configurations. Featuring durable, heavy-duty steel housing and a user-friendly LCD panel, the array meets the demands of all data intensive applications.
