RAID Rack

 

Home > Products > Raid Tower > RAID Rack

All is needed is to add the hard drive of your choice to create your own powerful external RAID rack mount storage

The Addonics RAID Rack is a family of Rackmount chassis with built-in Port Multipliers and removable drive systems for easy addition and removal of hard drives. Comes bundled with all the connecting cables to attach 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 60TB per Rack using today's largest 3TB hard drive! It is an 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 Multilane cable. There is also choice of models with hot swappable redundant power supply for mission critical applications.

    • Detailed diagram and specifications
  • Front Panel
    • LED displays - Power, HDD Activity, Fan, and Temperature
    • Front accessible switches - Power On / Off, System Reset, Buzzer Reset
    • Choice of three Snap-In Disk Array or Disk Array 5SA for access up to fifteen 3.5" hard drives (or 2.5" hard drive using optional 3.5" drive adapter)
  • Rear panel
    • Choice of 4 eSATA connectors or one Multilane connector
    • Choice of one Snap-In Disk Array or Disk Array 5SA for access up to five 3.5" hard drives
  • Hardware Port Multiplier (HPM) - model: AD5SAHPMXA), 4 units included.
    • 5 drives are connected to each HPM which connects to the eSATA port or multilane connector mounted on the back panel
    • Each set of 5 drives can be configured as RAID0 (Striping), RAID1 (Mirroring), RAID5 (Parity), RAID10 (Mirrored Striped), JBOD (Concatenation), Clone Mode (N-Way Mirror) using the built-in hardware RAID
    • Drives can also be set to appear as individual drive (JBOD) when the RAID Rack is attached to a PM compatible controller
    • RAID configuration can be set via included software utility (for Windows OS only) or onboard dip switches
    • Compatible with any OS.

*Note: The RAID RACK must be connected to a SATA controller with hot swap capability in order to add and remove drive without rebooting. Please consult your motherboard or the add-in card manufacturer to determine hot swap support on your SATA controller. All of the Addonics SATA Host Controllers are hot swap capable.

* Note: JBOD setting requires connection to USB or PM compatible controller.
