TowerRAID TR8M6G - 8 Bay eSATA 6G Port Multiplier RAID 0/1/10/5/JBOD Tower w/ 6G PCIe Card

Overview


The TowerRAID TR8M6G is the world first 6G port multiplier storage, bundled with 6G PCIe 2.0 x4 RAID 5 controller. It is a compact RAID tower utilizing the latest SATA III port multiplier technology, where two eSATA cables connect to eight 6Gb/s SATA hard drives. Bundled with a high performance RAID controller card RR642, its RAID 5 performance is capable of reaching over 600MB/s. Online expansion is a feature included in the controller card so that RAID could be expanded without the need to recreate the storage space or erase the existing data. Advanced monitoring functions include real time hard drives health status, remote RAID management and e-mail notification for critical events. Designed with easy installation in mind, the TR8M6G provides hot swappable tray modules, allowing instant setup by simply inserting the hard drives after opening the protective ventilating cover. The included dual-port eSATA 6Gb/s PCIe 2.0 x4 RAID controller card all drives configured into a single or multiple RAID arrays, providing over 600MB/s in performance with 8 drives.
