Areca 24bay 4U 9-Port Thunderbolt 3 SAN Rackmount RAID


ARC-8050T3 SAN (Diskless) is a 24-bay Thunderbolt 3 rackmount SAS/SATA RAID storage with RAID control capabilities solution for both PC and Mac. ARC-8050T3 SAN incorporated on-board 1.2GHz dual core ROC and 4GB ECC SDRAM memory to deliver true high performance hardware RAID protection against drive failure.

This combination helps to provide a high performance storage device perfect for the video editor working with Real time multi-stream HD and 4K workflows.

Thunderbolt™ 3 brings Thunderbolt to USB-C at speeds up to 40 Gbps, creating one compact port that does it all – delivering the fastest, most versatile connection to any dock, display, or data device. ARC-8050T3 SAN is a storage solution that offers 9* x Thunderbolt 3 ports allowing connection to 9 clients which are able to simultaneously edit, transfer and share data on PCIe RAID storage over Thunderbolt connection at unprecedented speeds.

The reserved Mac mini caddy on 4U 24-bays enclosure is the best solution for adding one Mac mini server and computer to an ARC-8050T3 SAN rack chassis. ARC-8050T3 SAN leverages Thunderbolt interface and transforms it into a more flexible Thunderbolt SAN architecture and eliminates the high costs of Fibre Channel SAN or 10 Gigabit Ethernet.
