6G SAS Expander Technology - Connect 12 SAS or SATA drives with only one SFF-8088 to 8088 Mini-.SAS cable to HBA (Host Bus Adapter) or RAID Controller.
Superior Performance - With support of SATA 6G or SAS 6G hard drives and 24Gbps of data bandwidth, performance can reach over 1500MB/s in read/write, when using with RAID controller.
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 60 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
All hardware are 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.
Build-in hot-swappable cooling fan and carrying handle
