  • HighPoint RocketStor 6618T 8-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Enclosure

    Add the speed and storage capabilities of Thunderbolt 3 and RAID to your Windows system using the RocketStor 6618T 8-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Enclosure from HighPoint. It is well suited for not only 4K workflows, but also increased performance and protection. The RocketStor 6618T 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 6618T is equipped with an integrated RAID-on-Chip storage processor and 512MB of DDR3 cache memory with ECC protection. Using Turbo RAID technology, this enclosure is able to utilize the host system's surplus CPU and memory resources to enhance transfer speeds, which can reach up to 2,700 MB/s in RAID 0 and 2,400 MB/s in RAID 5.

    The RocketStor 6618T has 8 drive bays that support 3.5" and 2.5" SATA hard drives and SSDs. All the drive bays feature LEDs noting power, activity, failure, and identify, all of which help report on the status of each drive. The 6618T is also equipped with dual Thunderbolt 3 ports, which allow for daisy-chaining up to six independent RocketStor 6618T units or other peripherals, such as dual 4K displays, using a single Thunderbolt 3 host port. Thunderbolt 3 operates at 40 Gb/s, which allows simultaneous bi-directional transfer speeds at up to 20 Gb/s.

    The 6618T has been designed with 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, 1 x Thunderbolt 3 cable, 1 x UL Power Cord, 32 x 3.5" HDD mounting screws, and 32 x 2.5" SSD mounting screws. Using a separately sold adapter, the RocketStor 6618T may be used with Thunderbolt 2 interfaces, and the supported operating systems are Windows Server 2000 and later, Windows 8 and later, and Mac OS X 10.10 and later.

    General Features

    RAID Architecture

    Storage Availability and Accessibility
    The RocketStor 6618T has integrated a series of preemptive security measures to maximize storage uptime whenever data is needed. Redundant RAID 5 and 6 protection shields storage configurations from 1 or 2 disk failures, respectively. The RocketStor Storage Health Inspector (SHI) proactively maintains the health of arrays by examining each drive for failed sectors & dynamically repair/remap on the fly to keep storage ready & able.
    RAID Recovery
    HighPoint Hardware RAID solutions feature built-in NVRAM, which constantly tracks in-progress writes to preserve the integrity of data in the event of a drive failure or system crash, and streamline recovery procedures while minimizing downtime. Administrators can initialize or schedule RAID verification sessions that check each disk member of an array for parity consistency. If any parity related problems are found, the interface will immediately rebuild the array to ensure the integrity of your data.
    Open-Box Storage Solution
    The RocketStor 6618T features an "open-box" approach to storage, which grants customers the freedom to use their choice of drives, and customers can add drives as needed to meet the evolving performance or capacity requirements of the storage application. The eight removable hot-swap bays support any 2.5" or 3.5" SATA hard drive or SSD. Enterprise / NAS class drives are recommended for the RocketStor 6618T.
    Storage Expansion Ready
    The RocketStor 6618T's daisy-chain capability allows customers to link as many as six independent RocketStor 6618T units using a single Thunderbolt 3 host port. The RocketStor's Configurable Online Capacity Expansion and RAID Migration allow customers to modify RAID configurations or expand existing storage while avoiding complicated, time consuming backup and restoration procedures.

  • 8 x WD 8TB Red Pro 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS HDD

    Designed with SMB customers in mind, the 8TB Red Pro 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS HDD from WD is well-suited for medium to large-scale NAS environments with up to sixteen 3.5" drive bays. Engineered to handle increased workloads, this 8TB drive operates using a SATA III 6 Gb/s interface, a 128MB cache, and a rotational speed of 7200 rpm, which all help to ensure uninterrupted data transfers with a sustained rate of up to 205 MB/s. This drive also features high levels of reliability, with 600,000 load/unload cycles, <10 in 1015 non-recoverable read errors per bits read, dual-plane balance control technology, and 1,000,000 hours MTBF for 8-16 bay NAS systems. Shock protection is provided by a multi-axis shock sensor and WD's NASware 3.0 helps increase system compatibility, allowing Red Pro drives to be more easily integrated with your existing network infrastructure.

    General Features

    NAS for Big Business
    Increase the efficiency and productivity of your business with WD Red Pro hard drives for up to 16-bay NAS systems. The WD Red Pro comes equipped with NASware 3.0, which increases system compatibility allowing for integration with your existing network infrastructure. Add value to your business by enabling your employees to quickly share their files and back up folders reliably with WD Red Pro NAS hard drives in your NAS solution
    NASware 3.0 Technology
    WD's advanced firmware technology, NASware 3.0, enables integration, robust data protection, and improved performance for NAS systems operating under heavy demand
    Built for NAS Compatibility
    Desktop drives aren't purpose-built for NAS, but WD Red Pro drives with NASware are. WD's technology helps takes the guesswork out of selecting a drive and balances performance and reliability in NAS and RAID environments. Simply put, WD Red Pro is compatible with medium to large NAS enclosures
    Larger NAS Bay Shock Protection
    WD Red Pro is equipped with a multi-axis shock sensor that automatically detects subtle shock events and dynamic fly height technology which adjusts each read-write function to compensate and protect the data. This combination of technology further protects the drives in larger 1 to 16 bay NAS environments and helps increase hard drive reliability
    3D Active Balance Plus
    WD's enhanced dual-plane balance control technology helps improve the overall drive performance and reliability. Hard drives that are not properly balanced may cause excessive vibration and noise in a multi-drive system, reduce the hard drive life span, and degrade the performance over time
    Error Recovery Prevention
    Built specifically for RAID and NAS environments, WD Red Pro drives come equipped with error recovery controls as part of NASware 3.0, which prevents the drive from fallout in RAID applications.
    Extended Drive Testing
    A NAS environment that has up to 16 bays is very demanding on a hard drive with added vibration, heat, and other factors. This is why every WD Red Pro drive is shipped with extended thermal cycle burn-in testing which helps certify each drive for extended reliable operation
