The MobileSTOR MS8X+HG is a 8-bay storage solution with bundled RAID-on-Chip RAID controller (RR4522, PCIe 2.0 x8), high bandwidth mini-SAS cables, and 8 bay storage tower. With two mini-SAS connections, MS8X+HG provide high transfer rates for 6G SAS, SATA hard drives and SSD. Utilizing two high bandwidth mini-SAS (SFF-8088) cabling, the MS8X+HG support 6Gb/s 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. The mini-SAS ports combine eight hard drives connections into two, reducing possible points of failures, while preserving uninterrupted data transfer. The MS8X+HG also supports SATA and SAS drives, allowing users the option to choose between high performance and high capacity storage solutions. Bundled RAID-on-Chip controller increase overall performance by offload complex RAID calculation to dedicated RAID controller chips. This solutions 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, with performance over 1000MB/s in RAID applications.

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.
