Item# KT-ES208X6plusBHG
Model:  Power Supply: 

The EliteSTOR ES208X6+BHG is a 2U 8 bay 6G RAID storage rackmount for high capacity storage solutions. The ES208X6+BHG is bundled with a dedicated RAID-on-Chip controller card that offloads complicated RAID calculations from the computer or the enclosure to the dedicated RAID engine. High performance can be achieved with a lower cost of ownership compared to RAID embedded subsystems.  RAID setup and maintenance can be controlled via Web Browser interfaces, and the system / RAID management can be monitor via event log and e-mail notifications. Utilizing high bandwidth 2400MB/s mini-SAS (SFF-8088) cabling, the ES208X6+BHG supports SAS or 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 eight hard drive connections into a single cable, reducing possible points of failures while preserving uninterrupted data transfer. A built-in SAS expansion port enables the system to connect up to 5 units or 120 HDD drives daisy-chained together. System status information such as the hard drive, power supply, 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. The ES208X6+BHG also support SATA drives, allowing users the option to choose between high performance and high capacity storage solutions.
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.

  • Hitachi 1TB (0A39289) 
  • Hitachi 2TB (0F10452)
  • Hitachi 3TB (0F12456)
  • Supports 6G SAS and 6G SATA Technology - Supports both latest 6G SAS and SATA Drives.
  • High Performance PCIe 2.0 x8 RAID controller card - Package includes a PCIe 2.0 x8 RAID-on-Chip RAID controller, supporting up to RAID 5/6/50. Dedicated Hardware RAID engines provide RAID calculation offloading from the main computer to the controller's process, providing overall higher performance.
  • Superior Performance - With support of SATA 6G or SAS 6G hard drives and 24Gbps of data bandwidth, performance can reach over 1000MB/s in Read and Write.
  • Advance Feature Included - Hot-Spare hard drive, Auto-rebuilding, Online RAID Migration, Online Capacity Expansion are supported.
  • Web based GUI for management and Monitoring - Built-in web based GUI for setup and monitoring allow management of the RAID status using a web-browser. Detailed event information is saved in an event log and critical events can be e-mailed using SMTP. All management and monitoring can run on any web browser with remote monitoring.
  • 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.
  • Scalability - Supports up to 5 enclosures or up to 120 hard drives daisy-chained together for capacity expansion.
  • Multi-purposes - 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 can be used for capacity oriented storage such as disk-to-disk backup, data-archiving, and digital video editing. Enterprise level SAS drives can be employed for I/O intensive applications such as transactional databases.
  • Optional Redundant Power Supply - Optional hot-swappable, redundant power is useful for protection against power failures. Power supply status can be easily monitored by the status LED and audible alarm alert.
  • All Hardware Included - Bundled with the 6G SAS/SATA RAID controller, Mini-SAS cable, cooling fan, tray modules, and built-in mounting rail.
