The AccuSTOR AS316IXR is a 3U rack-mountable 6G SAS JBOD rackmount for expansion with AccuRAID AR316IR or AR316ITR, SAS/SATA to iSCSI RAID storage system. Built-in with dual IO SAS controllers, the AS316IXR provide high availability and high redundant expansion storage for iSCSI storage. Utilizing the latest 6G SAS/SATA technology, the AS316IXR provides mini-SAS host to 16 high performance 6G SAS hard drives or high capacity SATA drives (Additional Mux Board required for SATA drives). The AS316IXR includes two mini-SAS ports for expansion with the AR316IR or AR316ITR RAID head unit allowing it to expand up to 3 additional units, which equals to a total of 64 HDD bays (3U-16 AR316IR or AR316ITR plus 3 3U-16 AS316IXR supporting a maximum of 196TB with 3TB hard drives). When connect to AR316IR or AR316ITR and AS316IXR, it establish a single multi-terabyte RAID capable volume saving users the cost of purchasing additional RAID units. Redundant power supply, hot-swappable cooling fan and cable-less backplane design allows easy trouble shooting and maintenance. The versatility of the AS316IXR allows easy configuration and integration with the AccuRAID AR316IR or AR316ITR Dual Quad iSCSI RAID Storage array system. With flexible configuration and easy integration with existing AccuRAID AR316IR makes AS316IXR a high performance and high-redundancy data storage expansion units.
Note: Sans Digital recommends the use of enterprise hard drives when in use with any RAID controller applications. Standard desktop or green desktop drive may not be supported and may compromise RAID system stability and performance.
