This review is from: SANS DIGITAL EliteSTOR ES316X6+B JBOD (RAID is supported by additional RAID card) 16 x Hot-Swappable 3.5" Drive Bays 6G SAS Expander, Mini-SAS / SFF-8088 x 1 3U 16 Bay 6G SAS/SATA to SAS JBOD with SAS Expander Rackmount
Pros: - Excellent build quality and design. - Unique, but functional drive chassis locking system. - FULL SGPIO functions (meaning HDD power, activity, locator, and HDD failed lights work as they should). - Very, very, very fast (drive dependant). - Shipped with rails, chassis drive bay keys, and redudant power supplies. - Ability to daisy chain additional units for more storage.
We can read and write around 900MB /sec on a RAID 60 array (16 x 2TB Western Digital Yellow SATA 2). Using an LSI 9280e controller.
Cons: Fans are loud; then again this thing will not exactly sit beside your desk. I'd take the noise over an overheating HDD.
Other Thoughts: When your purchasing any kind of storage device like this you need SGPIO. Some cheaper units don't have SGPIO functions (meaning HDD power, activity, locator, and HDD failed lights). Try replacing a failed HDD in a RAID array without SGPIO.
