TowerRAID TR8X+P - 8 Bay 6G SAS / SATA RAID 5 Storage Enclosure w/ 6G PCIe 2.0 x8 card (Silver)


Overview


The TowerRAID TR8X+P is an 8-bay RAID 5 tower with mini-SAS connection for high transfer rates of up to 650MB/s. The TR8X+P is bundled with a high-performance RAID controller card (RR2722, PCIe 2.0 x8 6G RAID controller) that offloads complicated RAID calculations from the computer to lower CPU utilization. High performance could be achieved with a lower cost of ownership compared to RAID embedded subsystems. RAID setup and maintenance could be controlled via built-in web browser interfaces, and the unit is supportive of e-mail notification and real-time event log. Utilizing high bandwidth mini-SAS (SFF-8088) cabling, the TR8X+P supports 6Gb/s SAS or SATA hard drives to deliver superior read / write speeds that are crucial in performance-driven environments such as video editing industry and high performance computer. The mini-SAS connection connects eight hard drives connections into two ports, reducing possible points of failures, while preserving uninterrupted data transfer. The TR8X+P also supports SATA drives, allowing users the option to choose between high performance and high capacity storage solutions. Windows, MAC, Linux and VMware ESX/ESXi 4.0 or 4.1 are supported.

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.
