RAID Rack (RR2035ASDES)

4U RAID Rack Introduction

The Addonics 4U RAID Rack is a family of Rackmount chassis with built-in Port Multipliers and removable drive systems for easily adding and removing hard drives. It comes bundled with all the connecting cables needed to attach it to your system, these RAID Racks are designed to accommodate as many as twenty SATA hard drives in 3.5" or 2.5" form factor, for a total storage capacity of a whopping 80TB per Rack using today's largest 4TB hard drive! It is the ideal storage solution for video storage, storage farm or any applications that require a high capacity, reliable storage system.

You can start your RAID Rack with as little as one hard drive and expand by adding more hard drives as your storage requirement grows. Depending on the model, the 20 hard drives are set up as 4 RAID groups that connect to the system with 4 eSATA cables or a single mini SAS cable. There is also choice of models with hot swappable redundant power supply for mission critical applications.

 

About This Model

The RR2035ASDES features a 500w ATX power supply, Snap-In Disk Arrays for adding or removing drives directly like tape cartridges from each bay without any special tool, and 4 eSATA ports for connection to computer. The RAID Rack is connected to a system equipped with a PM compatible controller with 4 eSATA ports such as the Addonics 4-eSATA 6G host controller. Depending on your application, the twenty drives can be used as 20 individual drives or formed as different RAID groups. It is perfect solution for attaching large number of hard drives to any system for a variety of storage applications - external RAID storage, Video storage or Server storage.
