The black MobileSTOR MS12X6+BHG 12-Bay 6G SAS/SATA RAID Expander Tower from Sans Digital is a 12-bay 6G RAID storage tower for high capacity storage solutions. The enclosure is bundled with a high-performance RAID-on-Chip controller card that offloads complicated RAID calculations from the computer or the enclosure to the dedicated RAID engine. RAID setup and maintenance can be controlled via built-in web browser interfaces, and the system / RAID management can be monitored via event log and e-mail notifications. Utilizing high-bandwidth 2400 MB/s mini-SAS (SFF-8088) cabling, the enclosure supports SAS or SATA hard drives to deliver superior read/write speeds that are crucial in performance-driven environments such as the video editing industry.

The mini-SAS connection combines twelve hard drive connections into a single cable, reducing possible points of failures while preserving uninterrupted data transfer. A built-in SAS expansion port enables the system to connect up to 5 units or 120 hard disk drives daisy-chained together. System information such as the hard drive, power supply, and cooling fan status are provided by LED indicators. All necessary hardware comes standard, including the RAID controller card, mini-SAS cable, and hard drive tray modules. The enclosure supports SATA and SAS drives, allowing users the option to choose between high performance and high capacity storage solutions.

Note: Sans Digital recommends the use of enterprise-class 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.

6G SAS Expander Technology
The enclosure features Expander technology, which connects 12 SAS/SATA drives with only one SFF-8088 to 8088 mini-SAS cable to bundle the RAID controller.
6G SAS and SATA Technology
The RAID storage rackmount supports both 6G SAS and SATA drives.
High Performance PCIe 2.0 x8 RAID Controller Card
The included PCIe 2.0 x8 RAID-on-Chip RAID controller supports up to RAID 5/6/50. Dedicated hardware RAID engines offload RAID calculations from the main computer to the controller, providing overall high performance.
Superior Performance
With support for SATA 6G or SAS 6G hard drives and 24 Gb/s of data bandwidth, this tower is capable of delivering over 1000 MB/s read and write performance.
Advanced Features Included
The tower is equipped with advanced features including hot-spare hard drive, auto-rebuilding, online RAID migration, and online capacity expansion.
Web-Based GUI for Management and Monitoring
Built-in web-based GUI for setup and monitoring allow management of the RAID status using a web browser. Detailed event information is saved in an event log and critical events can be e-mailed using SMTP. All management and monitoring can be performed on any web browser with remote monitoring.
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.
Scalability
Up to 5 enclosures or 120 hard drives can be daisy-chained together for capacity expansion.
Multi-Purpose Enclosure
The tower 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-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.
