The EliteSTOR ES316X6+BHG 3U 16-Bay PCIe 2.0 x8 RAID Rackmount Chassis from Sans Digital is a high capacity storage solution. It is bundled with a dedicated RAID-on-Chip controller card that offloads complicated RAID calculations from the computer or the enclosure to the dedicated RAID engine. This rackmount chassis offers superior performance with a lower cost of ownership compared to RAID embedded subsystems. RAID setup and maintenance can be controlled via 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 rackmount chassis 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 eight 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 status information such as the hard drive, power supply, and cooling fan status are provided by the LED. All necessary hardware comes standard, including the controller card, mini-SAS cable, hard drive tray modules, and built-in mounting rail. The rackmount supports both SAS and SATA drives, thereby providing you with 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.

Supports 6G SAS and 6G SATA Technology
The rackmount chassis supports both 6G SAS and SATA drives.
High Performance PCIe 2.0 x8 RAID Controller Card
The rackmount chassis includes a PCIe 2.0 x8 RAID-on-Chip controller card that supports up to RAID 5/6/50. Dedicated hardware RAID engines offload RAID calculations from the main computer to the controller, delivering superior performance.
Superior Performance
With support for 6G SATA/SAS hard drives and 24 Gb/s of data bandwidth, the rackmount is capable of delivering over 1000 MB/s read and write performance.
Advanced Features Included
It comes equipped with advanced features such as 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 allows 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 using any web browser with remote monitoring.
Staggering Spin-Up
Built-in staggering spin-up for hard drives during power up helps to extend the life/duty cycle of the hard drives and power supply.
Up to 5 enclosures or up to 120 hard drives can be daisy-chained together for capacity expansion.
Multi-Purpose Enclosure
The rackmount chassis supports both SAS (Serial SCSI) and SATA hard drives to meet the requirements of different applications with different 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.
Redundant Power Supply
Hot-swappable, redundant power is useful for protection against power supply failures. Power supply status can be easily monitored by the status LED and audible alarm alert.
