The ARC-5026 4-Bay Thunderbolt RAID Enclosure from Areca features both Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 connectivity making it easy to plug this storage solution into both Mac and Windows computers. The Thunderbolt connection offers a maximum data transfer rate of up to 10 Gb/s along with support for two way communications through one cable. The ARC-5026 comes equipped with two Thunderbolt ports allowing you to daisy-chain this enclosure with up to seven Thunderbolt compatible devices.

The four drive bays found in the ARC-5026 support both HDDs and SSDs and come equipped with a SATA 6 Gb/s interface. Once installed you can configure the drives to suit nearly any storage need with support for RAID 0, 1, 10(1E), 3, 5, 6, Single Disk and JBOD configurations. You will also find a brushless fan incorporated into the enclosure to keep everything cool.
Thunderbolt Technology
The ARC-5026 features two interfaces, Thunderbolt and USB 3.0. Thunderbolt technology is a high-speed, dual protocol I/O technology designed for performance, simplicity, and flexibility. Thunderbolt I/O technology allows you to move data between high-resolution displays and high performance data services on a single compact port. Both data signals can be sent and received at the same time through dual 10 Gb/s channels. A single cable attached to one of the ports provides 2 channels able to achieve the 10 Gb/s speeds flowing both ways simultaneously. This Thunderbolt connectivity also supports hubs as well as a daisy chain of up to seven Thunderbolt devices.
Easy RAID Management
Configuration and monitoring can be managed through in-band Thunderbolt port using firmware-embedded browser-based RAID manager(McRAID). This RAID manager allows local or remote access from any standard internet browser via in-band Archttp utility. The ARC-5026 Thunderbolt RAID storage solution also provides an API library allowing customers to combine it with their own monitor utility.

The Disk Stress Test (DST) utility kicks out disks meeting marginal spec before the RAID unit is actually put on-line for real business. The intelligent cooling continuously adapts to environmental conditions by automatically controlling the speed of the cooling fans. This super silent design, creates a balance between noise reduction and necessary cooling, making the ARC-5026 well suited for audio/video application especially the rapidly growing demand from the video editing markets.
Enhanced Performance
The ARC-5026 is 4-bay 6Gb/s SATA Thunderbolt/USB 3.0 storage device with RAID control capabilities designed for the Mac environment. The ARC-5026 incorporated an on-board high performance ARM based storage I/O processor and 1GB DDR3 SDRAM on-board memory with ECC protection to deliver high performance hardware RAID functionality.
Unsurpassed Data Availability
The ARC-5026 supports RAID 6 to allow two HDD failures without impacting the existing data and performance of the unit. Its high data availability and protection is derived from a variety of advanced RAID features. Additionally, you benefit from the ability to scale your system from a JBOD configuration to RAID. With the innovative ROC 6Gb/s SATA feature and support for solid state drives, the ARC-5026 RAID storage can be used as a small-workgroup server offering enhanced performance and enterprise level data protection for external storage.
