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.
Superior Performance
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.
Staggering Spin-Up
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.
Scalability
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.
Multi-Purpose Enclosure
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.
