TowerRAID TR8MHA - 8 Bay SATA to eSATA (Port Multiplier) JBOD/RAID 0, 1, 1+0, 5 Enclosure (Silver)

Overview


The TowerRAID TR8MHA is a compact RAID tower utilizing the latest SATA II port multiplier feature, where one single eSATA cable connects to five 3Gpps SATA II hard drives. Bundled with a high performance RAID controller card RR2314, its RAID 5 performance is capable of reaching over 350MB/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 and e-mail notification for critical events. Designed with easy installation in mind, the TR8MHA is designed with five hot-swappable tray modules so that hard drives could be removed and installed with ease. The included 4-port eSATA PCIe x4 controller card allows the connection of up to two TR8M units (up to 16 hard drives) using only four cables, while all drives could be configured into a single or multiple RAID arrays, providing over 300MB/s in performance.
