The TowerRAID TR5M6G is the world first 6G port multiplier storage, bundled with 6G PCIe 2.0 x4 RAID 5 controller. It is a compact RAID tower utilizing the latest SATA III port multiplier technology, where one single eSATA cable connects to five 6Gb/s SATA hard drives. Bundled with a high performance RAID controller card RR642, its RAID 5 performance is capable of reaching over 300MB/s. Online expansion is a feature included in the controller card so that RAID could be expanded without the need to recreate the storage space or erase the existing data. Advanced monitoring functions include real time hard drives health status, remote RAID management and e-mail notification for critical events. Designed with easy installation in mind, the trayless TR5M6G allows instant setup by simply inserting the hard drives after opening the protective ventilating cover. The included dual-port eSATA 6Gb/s PCIe 2.0 x4 RAID controller card allows the connection of up to two TR5M6G units (up to 10 hard drives) using only two cables, while all drives could be configured into a single or multiple RAID arrays, providing over 700MB/s in performance with 10 drives.

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.
