  • 1Description

The 8TB Mercury Rack Pro from Other World Computing is a 1U rackmount hard drive array with a mini-SAS interface. It is compatible with Windows and Mac computer systems. The array is populated with four 7200rpm hard drives, each with 64MB of cache memory.

The array is capable of transferring data at up to an amazing 24Gbps when used with an optional high-performance controller card. Because the mini-SAS interface can handle multiple data channels, only one cable is required to connect the array to a host. The drives ship formatted for Mac OS X -- you must reformat them to use the array in Windows.

OWC includes an extensive software bundle with the array. Prosoft Engineering Data Backup 3 and Carbon Copy Cloner are included for Mac OS X. NovaStor NovaBACKUP is included for Windows. And InTech SpeedTools Utilities is included for use with both Mac and Windows systems.

Great Performance
Using the some of the fastest SATA drive mechanisms available gives the OWC Mercury Rack Pro mini-SAS 4-bay 1U array a solid, performance focused base. Adding a high-speed external mini-SAS card (not included) further enhances the OWC Mercury Rack Pro providing some of the fastest drive transfer rates possible -- up to 24Gbps!
High Reliability
A top-notch design using the best components gives the OWC Mercury Rack Pro an industry leading five year warranty and ensures the array is built to last!
Flexible Form
The OWC Mercury Rack Pro can easily be converted to a desktop form-factor via a Phillips screwdriver by simply removing the rack ears and installing the included anti-skid, vibration dampening feet.
