Add the speed and storage capabilities of Thunderbolt 2 and RAID to your Windows, Mac, or Linux computer using the RocketStor 6318A 8-Bay Thunderbolt 2 RAID Enclosure from HighPoint. It is well suited for not only high-stress work environments, but also portable applications. The RocketStor 6318A supports RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, and JBOD, each of which will provide users with performance, data redundancy, or a combination of both. The 6318A is equipped with an integrated RAID-on-Chip storage processor and 512MB of DDR3 cache memory with ECC protection
The RocketStor 6318A has 8 drive bays that support 3.5" and 2.5" SATA and SAS hard drives and SSDs. All the drive bays are hot swappable and also feature LEDs noting power, presence, activity, and failure, all of which help report on the status of each drive. The 6318A is also equipped with dual Thunderbolt 2 ports, which allow for daisy-chaining Thunderbolt 2 and Thunderbolt displays and devices. Thunderbolt 2 operates at 20 Gbps, which allows simultaneous bi-directional transfer speeds at up to 10 Gbps.
The 6318A also features a user-friendly and browser-based RAID Storage Management Suite that allows users to configure, monitor, maintain, and troubleshoot RAID configurations and individual storage devices. Advanced Management Features will allow users to configure E-mail notifications to inform users of changing storage conditions while outside of the work environment and manage storage remotely via a local network connection. Additionally, it is possible to schedule RAID verification sessions and a Storage Health Inspector (SHI) will help to maintain the health of the entire system. Included with this RAID are 8 x drive trays, 2 x sets of HDD/SSD mounting screws with 18 screws in each set, 1 x Thunderbolt cable, and 1 UL power cord.
