The black TowerRAID TR8UT+B 8-Bay USB 3.0 eSATA Tower with PCIe 2.0 Card from Sans Digital utilizes high-performance USB 3.0 and eSATA interfaces to provide over 200 MB/s in performance. The included USB 3.0 port is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 ports, which is a convenient feature when both USB 3.0 and eSATA connections are unavailable. With built-in RAID 00, 30, 50, and JBOD, the enclosure provides hardware RAID redundancy protection against hard drive failures. The RAID engine is embedded within the enclosure and performs all RAID parity calculations to reduce CPU utilization from the host PC.
The enclosure is bundled with a 2-port PCIe 2.0 x1 eSATA controller card with SATA 6.0 Gb/s (6G) support (RR622 controller card). PCIe 2.0 is capable of providing twice the bandwidth of PCIe 1.0, allowing over 200 MB/s in performance. The enclosure is also backwards compatible with PCIe 1.0 slots, providing eSATA connectivity for computers that do not have built-in eSATA ports. Designed with easy installation in mind, the enclosure allows effortless installation; simply insert the hard drive tray (with the hard drives installed) after opening the attractive ventilating door. This enclosure is the ultimate RAID storage for all storage needs.
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.
The enclosure features eSATA and USB 3.0 interfaces. The included USB 3.0 port is backwards compatible with USB 2.0
