The EliteSTOR 24-Bay 6G SAS/SATA to SAS JBOD with SAS Expander Rackmount from Sans Digital is a high capacity storage solution with a 2.5" form factor. Utilizing the 6G SAS expander technology, the rackmount chassis provides over 24 Gb/s or 2400 MB/s of bandwidth to fulfill the most demanding applications. The rackmount chassis supports 2.5" SATA or SAS 6 Gb/s hard drives or solid state drives and is backwards compatible with 3 Gb/s SAS and SATA hard drives. It also supports up to 24 x 2.5" SAS or SATA drives using only one mini-SAS cable. In addition, a built-in SAS expansion port enables the system to connect up to 5 units or 120 hard disk drives daisy-chained together.
With high-performance RAID controller cards such as Areca ARC-1882X or LSI 9285-8E, the ES224X6+BS rackmount 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 includes 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. With all these features, the rackmount chassis is an ideal storage expansion solution for servers or high-performance video editing workstations.
6G SAS and 6G SATA Technology
The rackmount chassis supports both 6G SAS and SATA drives.
Hard Drive Support
The chassis supports hard drives with heights of up to 0.49" (12.5mm).
6G SAS Expander Technology
Connect 24 SAS or SATA drives with only one single SFF-8088 to 8088 mini-SAS cable to HBA (Host Bus Adapter).
With support of SATA 6G or SAS 6G hard drives and 24 Gb/s bandwidth, the rackmount chassis is capable of delivering over 1700 MB/s read and 1500 MB/s write performance.
Built-in staggering spin-up for hard drives during power up helps to extend the life/duty cycle of the hard drives and power supply.
Supports Industry Standard SGPIO
Serial General Purpose Input/Output (SGPIO) is utilized to monitor the health of the hard drives enclosure in real-time via the mini-SAS connection cable to the HBA (Host Bus Adapter) without an additional serial cable.
Supports up to 5 enclosures or up to 120 hard drives daisy-chained together for capacity expansion.
The rackmount chassis supports both SAS and SATA hard drives to meet the requirements of different applications with different price or performance 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.
System status can be easily 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.
