Built in LED's and audible alarms are provided to quickly notify the administrator in the case of hardware failure or environmental warning such as power loss or overheating.
Simple Cabling Solution delivers Dedicated 6Gb/s Bandwidth for each device!
The RocketStor 6414VS is designed to replace Port Multiplier Storage Solutions. It offers comparable pricing and a 50% performance gain compared to Port-Multiplier based RAID 5 Storage solutions.
SATA port-multipliers are unidirectional splitting devices - the total available transfer bandwidth is limited to that of a single SATA port. This design places severe limitations on SATA 6Gb/s Hard Drive performance. In addition, Port-Multiplier solutions rely on industry-standard eSATA connectivity, which was designed for 3Gb/s transfer speeds; this further limits the performance potential of modern 6Gb/s SATA devices, and is potentially less secure for sustained data transfer between such devices.
The RocketStor's 6414VS does not sacrifice performance or affordability for convenience. The superior point-to-point Mini-SAS architecture eliminates the performance bottleneck of port-multiplier solutions, while providing simple and secure storage connectivity.
Mini-SAS connectivity delivers dedicated 6Gb/s bandwidth for each SATA channel, which ensures each SATA SSD or hard drive can deliver maximum performance. Each Mini-SAS port can directly support up to 4 individual SATA drives - the simplified 4-into-1 cabling design is ideal for small form-factor computing platforms and portable applications.
