Discontinued - See EliteSTOR ES424X6+B as its direct replacement.

The EliteSTOR ES424X+B is a 2U rack-mountable SAS JBOD rackmount for high capacity storage solution. By utilizing latest SAS expander technology, it supports up to 24 SAS or SATA drives using only single mini-SAS cable. The unit is designed with 2 SAS expansion ports, allowing up to 5 units or 120 drives connected together. Its SAS expander technology is widely used in SAS host bus adaptors and RAID controller cards. Compatible RAID card brands include: Intel SAS RAID, LSI MegaRAID, Dell PERC external SAS RAID, Areca 1680X or 1680iX series, and ATTO ExpressSAS RAID. With a high performance RAID controller card, such as Areca ARC-1680X or LSI 9280-8E, the ES424X+B is capable of delivering over 650MB/s in read and write performance. System status information are provided by the LED, including hard drives, power supply and cooling fan status. All necessary hardware are included, including mini-SAS cable, hard drives tray modules and built-in mounting rail. The ES424X+B is an ideal storage expansion solution for servers or high performance video editing workstations.

Unique Features

  • SAS Expander Technology - Connect 8 SAS or SATA drives with only a single cable to eliminate point of failure. SAS controller is required.
  • Staggering Spin-Up - Built-in staggering spin-up for hard drives during power up, extending the life / duty cycle of the hard drives and power supply.
  • Support Industry Standard SGPIO - Utilizes industry standard Serial General Purpose Input/Output (SGPIO) to provide the hard drives status. Hard drives activity and fail status can transfer using the mini-SAS connection cable, so that no extra cable is needed.
  • Scalability - Supports up to 7 enclosures 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.
  • Redundant Power Supply come standard - Hot-swappable, redundant power is included for portection against power failure. Power supply status can be easily monitor via the LED and 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, LSI SAS MegaRAID, Intel SAS RAID, Adaptec SAS RAID, and 3Ware SAS RAID Adapters.
