The EliteSTOR ES224X6+B 2U 24-Bay 6G SAS/SATA JBOD Rackmount Chassis from Sans Digital offers a high capacity storage solution with a 2.5" form factor. Utilizing the 6G SAS Expander technology, the rackmount provides over 24 Gb/s or 2400 MB/s of bandwidth to fulfill the most demanding applications. The rackmount 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. In addition, it supports up to 24 SAS or SATA drives using only one mini-SAS cable.
A built-in SAS expansion port enables the system to connect up to 5 units or 120 hard disk drives daisy-chained together. With a high-performance RAID controller card such as Areca ARC-1880X or LSI 9280-8E, the 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, including hard drive, power supply, and cooling fan status, is provided by the LED. All necessary hardware comes standard, including a mini-SAS cable, hard drives 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.
Note: Sans Digital recommends the use of enterprise-class 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 and 6G SATA Technology
The rackmount chassis supports both 6G SAS and SATA drives.
Hard Drive Support
Supports standard height hard drives as well as those up to 0.49" (12.5mm) in height.
6G SAS Expander Technology
The rackmount utilizes the 6G SAS Expander technology that enables connection of 24 SAS or SATA drives with a single SFF-8088 to 8088 mini-SAS cable to an HBA (Host Bus Adapter).
With support for SATA/SAS 6G hard drives and 24 Gb/s bandwidth, the rackmount is capable of delivering performance over 1700 MB/s read and 1500 MB/s write performance (tested with LSI9280-8E and ARC-1880X).
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 and enclosure in real-time via the mini-SAS connection cable to the HBA (Host Bus Adapter) without additional serial cable.
Up to 5 enclosures or 120 hard drives can be daisy-chained together for capacity expansion.
The rackmount supports both SAS (Serial SCSI) 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. Alternatively, enterprise-level SAS drives could be employed for I/O intensive applications such as transactional databases.
Standard Redundant Power Supply
Hot-swappable, redundant power is included for protection against power failure. Power supply status can be easily monitored by the status LED and audible alarm alert.
Supports a Wide Range of RAID Adapters
The rackmount is compatible with Areca ARC-1680X, LSI SAS MegaRAID, Intel SAS RAID, and ATTO SAS RAID adapters.
