Item# ST-SAN-AR316F8

The AccuRAID AR316F8 Series is a 3U rack-mountable RAID solution designed for file servers, backup, audio/video streaming, and digital video recording. With a capacity of up to 64TB, this array is perfect for any application that requires a high volume storage solution. With quad high-performance 8G Fibre Channel host interface and cutting edge 6G SAS and 6G SATA dual hard drive support, the AR316F8 is guaranteed to deliver 8Gbps FC performance per channel. Users could flexibly choose between high performance SAS drives or cost-effective / high capacity SATA drives. With SAS expander support, the AR316F8 is capable of up to 448TB of capacity with additional AS316X6 JBOD expansion units. The feature-rich array allows the user to configure the unit to suit current demands and expand later when needed. The array utilizes sixteen hot-swappable 3.5” trays for SAS/SATA drives, allowing quick replacement and simple trouble-shooting. The AR316F8 RAID subsystem could also be easily scaled to RAID levels 0, 1, 0+1, 3, 5, 6, 30, 50, 60 or JBOD configurations. Featuring durable, heavy duty steel housing and a user-friendly LCD panel , the AR316F8 will meet all data intensive application demand. AR316F8 comes with modular RAID controller, redundant power supply and redundant cooling fans. Built-in redundant controller ready backplane allows non-destructive redundancy controller upgrade path without purchasing a brand new hardware.

Note: Please allow 3 days for rackmount testing before shipment.
