Areca ARC-4038X Overview

The ARC-4038X 32TB 8-Bay RAID Array from Areca comes with a PCIe RAID controller, an external miniSAS HD cable, and eight 4TB Enterprise-Level HDDs, providing 32TB of raw storage.

It offers a compact external storage chassis capable of accommodating drives with a SAS 12 Gb/s or SATA 6 Gb/s interface. The box can support both 2.5" and 3.5" disk drives, each one contained in a disk carrier. This compact tower provides one 6 Gb/s SFF-8088 SAS and four 12 Gb/s SFF-8644 connections. Out-of-band CLI can be redefined to the manufacture default setting on those connections. Configuration and environmental information are accessible either via in-band (SES-3.0 over SMP) or out-of-band serial port.

The ARC-4038 includes 8 internal plus 20 external SAS 12 Gb/s ports for host and easy expansion. It features SAS and LSI DataBolt bandwidth optimizer technology. This enclosure is compatible with SAS-enabled systems as well as 6 Gb/s drives and backplanes. Using DataBolt, the ARC-4038 buffers 6 Gb/s data and then transfers it out to the host at 12 Gb/s speeds in order to match the bandwidth between faster hosts and slower SAS or SATA devices.

The ARC-4038 contains an embedded expander manager that can access via in-band SES-3.0 over SMP protocol and out-of band RS-232 port. The ARC-4038 expander firmware and EPLD has implemented the SES-3.0 protocol and disk activity map to the individual fault/activity status indicator on the backplanes. It has autonomous chassis management of the power supply status connectors and two fan monitor/speed control connectors through the SES-3.0 protocol. The hardware monitor can keep track of system voltage and temperature as well as offer a warning message via an alarm buzzer and the corresponding LED.

The ARC-1883X PCIe RAID controller offers increased performance and improved enterprise data protection. This low-profile card is equipped with a 1.2 GHz dual-core ROC processor, 2GB of DDR3-1866 memory, and PCIe 3.0 interface. It supports up to 256 drives and provides two SFF-8644 ports.

Four 12Gb/s SFF-8644 and one 6Gb/s SFF-8088 SAS host and expansion connections
LED activity/status in each drive carrier
Daisy chain capacity expansion
Plug & Play add capacity without shutting down
