OVER 1500 MB⁄s!
The iStoragePro iR16SAE6G Rack Enclosure is equipped with the 6G high performance SAS expander board, designed with one Mini-SAS 8088 cable connection to a computer installed 6G SAS Controller. This efficient SAS interface provides a cost effective solution without compromising performance or reliability. When the iR16-6G is connected to a 6G SAS Card, it can easily be configured as a RAID 0, 1, 5, 6,10 & JBOD, and is capable of providing the performance and fault-tolerance necessary to protect your valuable video data.
The iR16SAE6G Enclosure connects to your computer installed SAS Controller with 1 Mini-SAS 8088 cable allowing up to 1334 MB⁄s Reads and 1541 MB⁄s Writes while configured as a RAID 5. In addition this enclosure is capable of expanding, using up to 7 additional iR16SAE6G expander enclosures, up to 128 drives.
This is a true Enterprise storage solution for the photo or video professional. As an edit storage system there is no better RAID system to be had.
Future proof Thunderbolt compatibility. These enclosures run off PCIe mounted RAID controllers. Areca has provided Thunderbolt drivers for the 1883x RAID controller card that MacGurus' recommends as the best controller for this RAID system. You'll need a 6G to 12G cable if you plan to use this card. If you move your work to a new platform with Thunderbolt, we simply use a Thunderbolt to PCIe expansion adapter and continue use without need for reformatting and at the same performance levels as enjoyed in a PCIe slot.
SAS 12G PCIe 8 channel external port RAID card. Expander compatible.
12g to 6G 8644 to 8088 symmetrical external mini-SAS cable, 2 meters long. Connects 12G device to 6G device - either direction.
