The silver MobileSTOR MS8X+HG 8-Bay 6G SAS/SATA RAID Tower from Sans Digital is a storage solution bundled with RAID-on-Chip RAID controller (RR4522, PCIe 2.0 x8) and high bandwidth mini-SAS cables. With two mini-SAS connections, the tower provides high transfer rates for 6G SAS, SATA hard drives, and solid state drives. Utilizing two high-bandwidth mini-SAS (SFF-8088) cables, the MS8X+HG supports 6Gb/s SAS or SATA hard drives to deliver superior read/write speeds that are crucial in performance-driven environments such as the video editing industry and server applications.

The mini-SAS ports combine eight hard drives connections into two, reducing possible points of failures, while preserving uninterrupted data transfer. The tower also supports SATA and SAS drives, giving you the option to choose between high performance and high capacity storage solutions. The bundled RAID-on-Chip controller increases overall performance by offloading complex RAID calculations to dedicated RAID controller chips. The tower can effortlessly support multiple streams of compressed high-quality playback or a single stream of uncompressed 10-bit high definition video under various RAID modes, with performance over 1000 MB/s in RAID applications.

Note: Sans Digital recommends the use of enterprise 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.
