The MobileSTOR MS8X6 series is a 8 bay dual channel mini-SAS SAS expander tower comprised of the same engines as the AccuSTOR / EliteSTOR enterprise level rackmount storage. Utilizing the same engine structure as the high-end rackmounts, the MobileSTOR provides storage features such as dual channel support and 6Gb/s SAS expander technology, the MobileSTOR MS8X6 provides up to 24 Gb/s or 2400MB/s of data bandwidth to fulfill the most demanding application. The MS8X6 supports SATA or SAS 6Gbps hard drives and is backward compatible to 3Gbps SAS & SATA hard drives. By utilizing the latest SAS expander technology, the MS8X6 supports up to 8 SAS or SATA drives using only one mini-SAS cable. A built-in SAS expansion port enables the system to connect up to 4 units or 32 HDD drives daisy-chained together. With a high performance RAID controller card such as Areca ARC-1880X or LSI 9280-8E, the MS8X6 is capable of delivering over 800MB/s in read/write performance with RAID controller and over 1500MB/s when using with 2 units, doubling the existing 3G SAS expander bandwidth. Drives status information is provided by the LED. All necessary hardware comes standard including mini-SAS cable and hard drives tray modules.
