Connect additional mini-SAS or SATA HDDs/SSDs via eSATA to your compatible Windows or Mac system using the RocketStor 6661A-mSAS1 Thunderbolt 3 to Mini-SAS Port Adapter from HighPoint. This adapter is equipped with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, which provide bi-directional speeds of 40 Gb/s. While one port is used to interface with your host system, the other can be used to daisy-chain up to six devices together, including dual 4K displays or a single 5K display, thanks to support for DisplayPort 1.2. Thunderbolt 3 also supports 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C and provides 15W of power to compatible devices for charging.
In addition to the Thunderbolt 3 ports, the RocketStor 6661A-mSAS1 has one mini-SAS (SFF-8088) port which supports four SATA III 6 Gb/s channels, and each channel is able to support one SATA hard drive or SSD at capacities of up to 14TB per drive, or 56TB total. Attached drives can also be configured as a RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 array, each of which provides performance, data redundancy, or a combination of both. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD and non-RAID modes are available.
HighPoint's RocketStor 6661A-mSAS1 Thunderbolt 3 to Mini-SAS Port Adapter is compatible with Thunderbolt 2 devices, as well as USB 3.1 Gen 1 (USB 3.0), and USB 2.0 using a USB Type-C cable. Please be aware that any daisy-chain connections will terminate if a peripheral or device is connected via USB Type-C. Included is a Thunderbolt 3 cable, a 60W / 100-240 VAC external power supply, and a power cord. Protection is provided by a limited 1-year parts & labor warranty.
