The silver MobileSTOR MS8X6+ 8-Bay SATA/SAS to 6G SAS JBOD Enclosure from Sans Digital is an 8-bay mini-SAS SAS expander tower that comprises of the same engines as the AccuSTOR/EliteSTOR enterprise-level rackmount storage. It utilizes SAS expander technology and provides up to 24 Gb/s or 2400 MB/s of data bandwidth to fulfill the most demanding application. This JBOD storage enclosure supports both SATA and/or SAS 6 Gb/s solid state drives and hard drives. It is backwards compatible with 3 Gb/s SAS & SATA solid state drives and hard disk drives. By utilizing the SAS expander technology, this enclosure supports up to 8 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 40 hard disk drives daisy-chained together. With a high-performance RAID controller card such as Areca, ATTO, Highpoint, and LSI 6G RAID controller, the enclosure is capable of delivering over 1500 MB/s read/write performance, doubling the existing 3G SAS expander bandwidth. The LED provides drives status information. This enclosure is an ideal storage expansion solution for servers or high-performance video editing workstations.
6G SAS Expander Technology
The JBOD enclosure connects up to 8 SAS or SATA drives with only one SFF-8088 to 8088 mini-SAS cable to the HBA (Host Bus Adapter) or RAID controller.
With support for SATA 6G or SAS 6G hard drives and 24 Gb/s of data bandwidth, it is capable of delivering over 1500 MB/s read/write performance when used with the RAID controller.
Built-in staggering spin-up for hard drives during power up extends the life/duty cycle of the hard drives and power supply.
Support Industry Standard SGPIO
Serial General Purpose Input/output (SGPIO) provides real-time information on hard drive health status via the mini-SAS connection cable to the HBA (Host Bus Adapter) without an additional serial cable.
Up to 5 enclosures or 40 hard drives can be daisy-chained together for capacity expansion.
Supports Wide Range of RAID Adapters
The enclosure is compatible with Areca, ATTO, Adaptec, Highpoint, HP, Intel, and LSI SAS RAID adapters.
The enclosure supports both SAS (Serial SCSI) and SATA hard drives to meet the requirements of different applications with different price/performance characteristics. Cost-effective SATA drives can be used for capacity-orientated storage such as disk-to-disk backup, data archiving, and digital video editing. Alternatively, enterprise-level SAS drives can be used for I/O intensive applications such as transactional databases.
