The silver TR8X+HG TowerRAID 8-Bay SAS/SATA Tower from Sans Digital is a RAID 5/6/50 tower with mini-SAS connection to deliver high transfer rates of over 1000 MB/s. It offers high performance with a lower cost of ownership compared to RAID embedded subsystems. The tower is bundled with a high-performance RAID controller card (RR4522, PCIe 2.0 x8 6G RAID-on-Chip RAID controller) that offloads complicated RAID calculations from the computer to lower CPU utilization. RAID setup and maintenance could be controlled via built-in web browser interfaces and the unit is supportive of e-mail notification and real-time event log.
Utilizing high-bandwidth mini-SAS cabling, the enclosure supports 6 Gb/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 high-performance computing. The mini-SAS connection connects eight hard drives into two ports, reducing possible points of failures, while preserving uninterrupted data transfer. In addition, it supports SATA drives, allowing users the option to choose between high-performance and high-capacity storage solutions. The tower is compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems.
The enclosure provides a complete RAID storage solution with no extra component required.
Supports eight 3.5" 6G SAS or 6G SATA hard disk drives.
The PCIe 2.0 x8 6G hardware RAID-on-Chip controller allows the offload of RAID calculation to controller card.
