Item# ST-SAN-MS28X6G

The MobileSTOR MS28X6G Series is a 8-bay tower with a dual mini-SAS connection which provides high performance JBOD storage. Utilizing high bandwidth mini-SAS (SFF-8088) cabling, the MS28X6G supports SAS or SATA hard drives to deliver superior read / write speeds that are crucial in performance-driven environments such as video editing industry and server application. Two mini-SAS ports combine eight hard drive connections into two cables, and reduce possible points of failures while preserving uninterrupted data transfer. The MS28X6G also supports SATA and SAS drives, allowing users to have the option to choose between high performance and high capacity storage solutions. Hard drive and RAID controller bundle options are available. When utilizing a SAS or SATA RAID controller, the unit could effortlessly support multi-streaming of compressed high-quality playback or a single-stream of uncompressed 10-bit high definition video under various RAID modes.

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.
