The silver MobileSTOR MS12X6+ 12-Bay SATA/SAS to 6G SAS Expander Storage from Sans Digital utilizes SAS expander technology and provides up to 24 Gb/s or 2400 MB/s of data bandwidth to fulfill the most demanding applications. The enclosure supports 6 Gb/s SATA/SAS hard disk drives and solid state drives, and is backwards compatible with 3 Gb/s SATA/SAS drives. It also supports up to 12 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 high-performance RAID controller cards such as Areca, ATTO, Highpoint, and LSI 6G RAID controller, this enclosure is capable of delivering over 1500 MB/s read/write performance, doubling the existing 3G SAS expander bandwidth. Drive status information is provided by the LED. The enclosure is an ideal storage expansion solution for servers or high-performance video editing workstations.

6G SAS Expander Technology
The enclosure connects 12 SAS or SATA drives with only one SFF-8088 to 8088 mini-SAS cable to 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, the enclosure is capable of delivering read and write performance over 1500 MB/s when used with RAID controller.
Staggering Spin-Up
Built-in staggering spin-up for hard drives during power up extend the life or 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 without additional serial cables.
Up to 5 enclosures or up to 40 hard drives can be daisy-chained together for capacity expansion.
Multi-Purpose Enclosure
The enclosure supports both SAS (Serial SCSI) and SATA hard drives to meet the requirements of different applications with different 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 can be employed for I/O intensive applications such as transactional databases.
Hot-Swappable Cooling Fan
The enclosure features a build-in hot-swappable cooling fan and carrying handle
