Item# KT-ES108X6plusB

The EliteSTOR ES108X6+B is a 1U SAS 6G JBOD rackmount for high capacity storage solution, with 2.5" form factor. Utilizing the latest 6G SAS expander technology, the ES108X6+B provides over 24Gb/s or 2400MB/s of bandwidth to fulfill the most demanding application. The ES108X6+B supports 2.5" SATA or SAS 6Gb/s hard drives or SSD and is backward compatible to 3Gb/s SAS & SATA hard drives.  By utilizing the latest SAS expander technology, the ES108X6+B supports up to 8 * 2.5" SAS or SATA drives using only one mini-SAS cable. A built-in SAS expansion port enables the system to connect up to 5 units or 40 HDD drives daisy-chained together. With a high performance RAID controller card such as Areca ARC-1882X or LSI 9285-8E, the ES108X6+B is capable of delivering over 1700MB/s in read and 1500MB/s write performance, doubling the existing 3G SAS expander bandwidth. System status information is provided by the LED, including hard drives, power supply and cooling fan status. All necessary hardware comes standard including mini-SAS cable, hard drives tray modules and built-in mounting rail. The ES108X6+B is an ideal storage expansion solution for servers or high performance video editing workstations. 

Note: Sans Digital recommends the use of enterprise hard drives when in use with any RAID controller applications. Standard desktop or green desktop drive may not be supported and may compromise RAID system stability and performance. For more information on the difference between RAID and desktop hard drives, please see the Western Digital knowledge base. For a list of compatible RAID Edition SATA hard drives, please refer to the list below:

  • Intel Brand SSD
  • OCZ Deneva 2 (D2CSTK251M11)

  • Supertalent TeraDriveCT2 240GB (FTM24C225H)
  • Supertalent TeraDriveCT2 480GB (FTM48C225H)

  • Supports 6G SAS and 6G SATA Technology - Supports both latest 6G SAS and SATA Drives.
  • Supports standard height and 12.5mm height hard drives.
  • 6G SAS Expander Technology - Connect 8 SAS or SATA drives with only one  single SFF-8088 to 8088 Mini-.SAS cable to HBA (Host Bus Adapter).
  • Superior Performance - With support of SATA 6G or SAS 6G hard drives and 08Gb/s bandwidth, performance can reach over 1700MB/s in read and 1500MB/s in write (tested with LSI9280-8E and ARC-1880X).
  • 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.
  • Scalability - Supports up to 5 enclosures or up to 40 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. Cost-effective SATA drives could be used for capacity orientated storage such as disk-to-disk backup, data-archiving, and digital video editing. Enterprise level SAS drives could be employed for I/O intensive applications such as transactional databases.
  • Standard Redundant Power Supply - Hot-swappable, redundant power is included for protection against power failure. Power supply status can be easily monitored by the status LED and audible alarm alert.
  • All hardware is 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.
  • Wide Range RAID Adapters Support - Compatible with Areca ARC-1680X/ARC-1880X/ARC-1882X, LSI SAS MegaRAID, Intel SAS RAID, Adaptec SAS RAID, Dell and 3Ware SAS RAID Adapters.
