Item# KT-ER208PSplusBHP

The EliteRAID ER208PS+BHP is a 2U 8 bay 6G RAID storage rackmount for high capacity storage solutions. The ER208PS+BHP innovative design allow single RAID controller card, connect via a single high speed mini-SAS cables to access 8 hard drives. With RAID 0, 1, 10, 5, 50 and 6 supported, high performance can be achieved with a lower cost of ownership compared to RAID embedded subsystems. RAID setup and maintenance can be controlled via built-in Web Browser interfaces, and the unit is supportive of e-mail notifications. Utilizing high bandwidth 2400MB/s mini-SAS (SFF-8088) cabling, the ER208PS+BHP supports SATA hard drives to deliver superior read / write speeds that are crucial in performance-driven environments such as the video editing industry. The mini-SAS connection combines sixteen hard drive connections into a single cables, reducing possible points of failures while preserving uninterrupted data transfer. System status information such as the hard drive, and cooling fan status are provided by the LED. All necessary hardware comes standard including the controller card, mini-SAS cable, hard drive tray modules and built-in mounting rail. 
Note: Sans Digital recommends the use of enterprise hard drives when in use with any RAID controller applications. Standard desktop or green desktop drive may not be supported and may compromise RAID system stability and performance. For more information on the difference between RAID and desktop hard drives, please see the Western Digital knowledge base.
