The EliteSTOR ES424X6+BS 4U 24-Bay 6G SAS/SATA with SAS Expander Rackmount from Sans Digital offers high capacity storage solutions. It utilizes the 6G SAS Expander technology and provides over 24 Gb/s or 2400 Mb/s of bandwidth to fulfill the most demanding application. This JBOD storage enclosure supports 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 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-1882X or LSI 9285-8E, the rackmount is capable of delivering over 1700 MB/s read and 1500 MB/s write performance, doubling the existing 3G SAS expander bandwidth. The LED provides system status information, including the hard drive, power supply, and cooling fan status. The rackmount is an ideal storage expansion solution for servers or high-performance video editing workstations.
6G SAS Expander Technology
Utilizing the 6G SAS Expander technology, the storage enclosure connects 24 SAS or SATA drives with only one single SFF-8088 to 8088 mini-SAS cable to HBA (Host Bus Adapter).
With support for 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 extends the life / duty cycle of the hard drives and power supply.
Supports Industry Standard SGPIO
Serial General Purpose Input/Output (SGPIO) provides information regarding 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 up to 120 hard drives can be daisy-chained together for capacity expansion.
System status is easily monitored by the status LED and audible alarm alert.
