EliteSTOR ES424X6+B - 4U 24 Bay 6G SAS/SATA to SAS JBOD with SAS Expander Rackmount

Overview


The EliteSTOR ES424X6+B is a 4U SAS 6G JBOD rackmount for high capacity storage solution. Utilizing the latest 6G SAS expander technology, the ES424X6+B provides over 24 Gb/s or 2400MB/s of bandwidth to fulfill the most demanding application. The ES424X6+B supports SATA or SAS 6Gbps hard drives or SSD and is backward compatible to 3Gbps SAS & SATA hard drives. By utilizing the latest SAS expander technology, the ES424X6+B supports up to 24 SAS or SATA drives using only one mini-SAS cable. A built-in SAS expansion port enables the system to connect up to 5 units or 120 HDD drives daisy-chained together. With a high performance RAID controller card such as Areca ARC-1880X or LSI 9280-8E, the ES424X6+B is capable of delivering over 1700MB/s in read and 1500MB/s write performance, doubling the existing 3G SAS expander bandwidth. System status information is provided by the LED, including hard drives, power supply and cooling fan status. All necessary hardware comes standard including mini-SAS cable, hard drives tray modules and built-in mounting rail. The ES424X6+B is an ideal storage expansion solution for servers or high performance video editing workstations. 

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. For more information on the difference between RAID and desktop hard drives, please see the Western Digital knowledge base. For a list of compatible RAID Edition SATA hard drives, please refer to the list below:

  • Seagate 500GB (ST3500514NS) 
  • Seagate 750GB (ST3750330NS) 
  • Seagate 1TB (ST31000524NS) 
  • Seagate 2TB (ST32000644NS)
  • Western Digital 500GB (WD5002ABYS)  
  • Western Digital 1TB (WD1002FBYS) 
  • Western Digital 2TB (WD2003FYYS)
  • Hitachi 500GB (0F11000)
  • Hitachi 1TB (0A39289) 
  • Hitachi 2TB (0F10452)
  • Hitachi 3TB (0F12456)


Features


  • 6G SAS Expander Technology - Connect 24 SAS or SATA drives with only one  single SFF-8088 to 8088 Mini-.SAS cable to HBA (Host Bus Adapter).
  • Superior Performance - With support of SATA 6G or SAS 6G hard drives and 24Gbps bandwidth, performance can reach over 1700MB/s in read and 1500MB/s in write (tested with LSI9280-8E).
  • Staggering Spin-Up - Built-in staggering spin-up for hard drives during power up. Thus, extending the life / duty cycle of the hard drives and power supply.
  • Support Industry Standard SGPIO - Serial General Purpose Input/Output (SGPIO) is utilized  to provide the hard drives health & enclosure real-time information via the mini-SAS connection cable to the HBA (host Bus Adapter) without additional serial cable.
  • Scalability - Supports up to 5 enclosures or up to 120 hard drives daisy-chained together for capacity expansion.
  • Multi-purposes - Supports both SAS (Serial SCSI) and SATA hard drives to meet the requirements of different applications with different price/performance characteristics. Cost-effective SATA drives could be used for capacity orientated storage such as disk-to-disk backup, data-archiving, and digital video editing. Enterprise level SAS drives could be employed for I/O intensive applications such as transactional databases.
  • Standard Redundant Power Supply - Hot-swappable, redundant power is included for protection against power failure. Power supply status can be easily monitored by the status LED and audible alarm alert.
  • All hardware is included - Mini-SAS cable, cooling fan, tray modules and build-in mounting rail are included. By connecting to a SAS controller and hard drives will instantly increase the storage space.
  • Wide Range RAID Adapters Support - Compatible with Areca ARC-1680X, LSI SAS MegaRAID, Intel SAS RAID, Adaptec SAS RAID, and 3Ware SAS RAID Adapters.
