SANS DIGITAL TowerRAID TR5UT+B - Five-Bay USB 3.0 / eSATA Hardware RAID 5 Tower with 6G PCIe 2.0 HBA (Black)
The TowerRAID TR5UT+B is a five-bay hardware RAID 5 storage tower that utilizes high performance USB 3.0 and eSATA interfaces to provide over 200MBps in performance. The included USB 3.0 is backwards-compatible with widely available USB 2.0 ports, which is a convenient feature when both USB 3.0 and eSATA connections are unavailable. With built-in RAID 0, 1, 10, 3, 5 with hot-spare and JBOD, the TR5UT+B provides hardware RAID redundancy protection against hard drive failures. A brand new RAID mode, CLONE or N-Way Mirror, is also introduced to replicate the saved data throughout each installed hard drive. The RAID engine is embedded within the enclosure and performs all RAID parity calculations to reduce CPU utilization from the host PC. RAID controller cards are unnecessary.
To satisfy the need for performance-demanding applications, the unit is bundled with a two-port PCIe 2.0 x1 eSATA controller card with SATA 6.0Gbps (6G) support (RR622 controller card). PCIe 2.0 is capable of providing twice the bandwidth of PCIe 1.0, allowing over 200Mbps in performance. The unit is also backward-compatible with PCIe 1.0 slots to provide eSATA connectivity for computers that do not have built-in eSATA ports. Designed with easy installation in mind, the TR5UT+B allows effortless installation by simply inserting the hard drive tray (with the hard drives installed) after opening the attractive ventilating door. The TR5UT+B is the ultimate RAID storage for all storage needs.
