The SANS DIGITAL TR8M-BP is a compact RAID tower with the latest SATA II port multiplier technology, where one single eSATA cable connects to eight 3Gpps SATA II hard drives. Bundled with a high performance RAID controller card RR622, its RAID 5 performance is capable of reaching over 250MB/s. The controller card's built-in online expansion feature allows the RAID to be expanded without the need to recreate the storage space or erase the existing data.
