mLogic mSAN 16 overview

  • 1Description

The mSAN 16 16-Bay Thunderbolt 3 Shared Storage Solution from mLogic is a storage area network (SAN) that can accommodate up to four directly-connected Windows or Mac systems via its four Thunderbolt 3 ports, which is expandable to 16 systems using its SAS expander port. The Thunderbolt 3 ports can also be used for daisy-chaining up to six Thunderbolt devices, including dual 4K displays or a single 5K display.

Powered by a 1.2 GHz RAID-on-Chip Dual-Core processor and 2GB of DDR3 RAM, the mSAN 16 has a 2 RU form factor and sixteen drive bays that support 3.5"/2.5" SAS-2 or SATA III 6 Gb/s hard drives and SSDs. Users will be able to configure this RAID with just hard drives, just SSDs, or mix and match the two for data transfer rates up to 2600 MB/s. Once installed, these sixteen drive bays can be configured in a variety of hardware-controlled RAID modes, including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10, each of which offers performance, data redundancy, or a combination of both. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD is also available.

mLogic's mSAN 16 is cooled using dual fans and has dual internal power supplies. Included is a Thunderbolt 3 cable, sixteen removable drive bays with hardware, and a power cord, as well as full versions of Hedge and KYNO software, and mLogic's RAID Manager app. Protection is provided by a limited 3-year warranty.

Please be aware that this 4-seat shared storage solution requires SAN software, such as Tiger Store or Apple Xsan, and a Windows or Mac metadata controller (MDC) to enable sharing.
