The EliteSTOR ES316X6+B 3U 16-Bay 6G SAS/SATA Rackmount Chassis from Sans Digital offers a high-capacity storage solution for servers or high-performance video editing workstations. It provides up to 24 Gb/s or 2400 MB/s of data bandwidth to fulfill the most demanding application. The rackmount supports 6 Gb/s SATA or SAS hard drives and solid state drives and is backwards compatible with 3 Gb/s SAS and SATA hard drives. In addition, it supports up to 16 SAS or SATA drives using only one mini-SAS cable.

A built-in SAS expansion port enables the daisy chaining of up to 5 units or 120 hard disk drives. With a high-performance RAID controller card such as Areca ARC-1880X or LSI 9280-8E, the ES316X6+B is capable of delivering over 1700 MB/s read and 1500 MB/s write performance, doubling the existing 3G SAS expander bandwidth. System status information is provided by the LED lights, including hard drive, power supply, and cooling fan status. All necessary hardware comes standard including the mini-SAS cable, hard drive tray modules, and built-in mounting rail.

Note: Sans Digital recommends the use of enterprise hard drives when in use with any RAID controller applications. Standard desktop or green desktop drives may not be supported and may compromise RAID system stability and performance.

6G SAS Expander Technology
The ES316X6+B rackmount chassis utilizes the 6G SAS Expander technology that enables connection of 16 SAS or SATA drives with only one SFF-8088 to 8088 mini-SAS cable to an HBA (Host Bus Adapter).
Superior Performance
With support for SATA/SAS 6G hard drives and 24 Gb/s of bandwidth, the rackmount chassis is capable of delivering over 1700 MB/s read and 1500 MB/s write performance (tested with LSI9280-8E).
Staggering Spin-Up
The rackmount chassis features built-in staggering spin-up for hard drives during power up, thus extending the life/duty cycle of the hard drives and power supply.
Supports Industry Standard SGPIO
Serial General Purpose Input/Output (SGPIO) is utilized to provide the health status of the hard drives and enclosure in real-time via the Mini-SAS cable to the HBA, eliminating the need for an additional serial cable.
Supports up to 5 enclosures or up to 120 hard drives daisy-chained together for capacity expansion.
Multi-Purpose Enclosure
The rackmount chassis supports both SAS (Serial SCSI) and SATA hard drives to meet the requirements of different applications with different characteristics. Cost-effective SATA drives could be used for capacity-oriented storage such as disk-to-disk backup, data archiving, and digital video editing. Enterprise-level SAS drives could be employed for I/O intensive applications such as transactional databases.
Standard Redundant Power Supply
Three hot-swappable, redundant power supplies are included for protection against power failure. The power supply status can easily be monitored by the status LED and audible alarm alert.
Supports Wide Range of RAID Adapters
Compatible with Areca ARC-1680X, LSI SAS MegaRAID, Intel SAS RAID, Adaptec SAS RAID, and 3Ware SAS RAID adapters.
