EliteSTOR ES316X12 - 3U 16-Bay 12G SAS/SATA to SAS JBOD with 12G SAS Expander Rackmount

The EliteSTOR ES316X12 is a 3U SAS 12G JBOD rackmount high capacity storage solution. Utilizing the latest 12G SAS expander technology, the ES316X12 provides up to 48Gbps or 4800MBps of data bandwidth to fulfill the most demanding applications. The ES316X12 supports SATA or SAS 12Gbps hard drives or SSD and is backward compatible to 6Gbps SAS & SATA hard drives. By utilizing the latest SAS expander technology, the ES316X12 supports up to 16 SAS or SATA drives using only one HD mini-SAS (SFF-8644) cable.

A built-in SAS expansion port enables the system to connect up to 256 HDD drives daisy-chained together. With a high performance RAID controller card such as Areca 12G RAID controller ARC-1883X or LSI MegaRAID 12G RAID controller, the ES316X12 is capable of delivering over in 3,000MBps in read and write performance, doubling the existing 6G SAS expander bandwidth.

System status information is provided by the LED, including hard drives, power supply and cooling fan status. All necessary hardware comes standard including mini-SAS cable, hard drives tray modules and built-in mounting rail. The ES316X12 is an ideal storage expansion solution for servers or high performance video editing workstations.

New DataBolt Technology Maximizes 6Gbps and 3Gbps Hard Drives and SSDs in 12G Performance
To allow 6Gbps and 3Gbps hard drives and SSDs to transition to newer 12G standard and performance, EliteSTOR SAS expander comes equipped with LSI DataBolt technology to allow 6G and 3G hard drive and SSD infrastructures to take advantage of 12Gbps speed. Only available in 12G SAS expander series, LSI DataBolt technology can aggregate bandwidth from 6Gbps and 3Gbps hard disk drives and SSD to a 12Gbps data stream by intelligently buffering data, resulting in over 50% increase. DataBolt technology is fully compatible with the 12Gbps SAS T10 specification.

Sans Digital
  • 12Gbps SAS Expander Technology - Connect 16 SAS or SATA drives with only one single SFF-8644 to 8644 HD Mini-.SAS cable to HBA (Host Bus Adapter) or RAID controller.
  • DataBolt Technology - Aggregate bandwidth from 6Gbps and 3Gbps hard disk drives and SSD to a 12Gbps data stream by intelligently buffering data, result in over 50% increase.
  • Superior Performance - With support of SATA 12Gbps or SAS 12Gbps hard drives and 48Gbps of data bandwidth, performance can reach over 3,000MBps in read and write (tested with 12G SAS RAID controller card (ARC-1883X)).
  • Staggering Spin-Up - Built-in staggering spin-up for hard drives during power up. Thus, extending the life / duty cycle of the hard drives and power supply.
  • Support Industry Standard SGPIO - Serial General Purpose Input / Output (SGPIO) is utilized to provide hard drive health & enclosure real-time information via the HD mini-SAS connection cable to the HBA (host Bus Adapter) or RAID card without an additional serial cable.
  • Scalability - Supports up to 256 drives daisy-chained together for capacity expansion via SAS expander.
  • Multi-Purpose - 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 - Hot-swappable, redundant power is useful for protection against power failure. Power supply status can be easily monitored by the status LED and audible alarm alert.
  • All Hardware Included - HD Mini-SAS cable, cooling fan, tray modules, and built-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-1883X, LSI SAS MegaRAID, and other industry standard 12G RAID card.
