Introducing the latest QUIET tower series - DATOptic's T8-S6.TB2 is a turn-key Thunderbolt 2 (20Gb) Eight (8) bay SAS | SATA (6Gb) JBod/Raid system in compact solid quiet tower chassis, ready to deploy supporting RAID 0, 1, 3, 5, 6,10/50/60/JBoD and hot spare based on world famous ARECA Raid engine, high performance of Intel IOP348 800MHz for RAID core and 256MB DDR2 cache.

High Performance
With direct connect to system host via Thunderbolt 20Gb/s bidirectional high performance I/O, T8-S6.TB2 provides unparalleled high reliability of data protection for users who demand enterprise class performance. T8-S6-TB2 not only provides a high reliable sustained data rate over 20Gb/sec bandwidth, and support spin down drives when not in use to extend service life (MAID), including automatic drive insertion / removal detection and rebuilding

Easy RAID Management
T8-S6.TB2 utilizes built-in firmware with an embedded terminal emulation which can be accessed via hot key at BIOS booting screen (PC platform) locally or remotely accessed via http proxy and/or IP address.

  • Hot key at BIOS boot-up screen. This pre-boot manager utility can be used to simplify the set up and management of the RAID configuration (PC x86 Platform).
  • RAID set up and management can be accessed via Web browser through the Http Proxy server functions in MAC and Windows. This method allows both local and remote control, configuration, and monitoring of RAID status.
  • RAID set up and management can be accessed via Web browser through the IP address. This method allows both local and remote control, configuration, and monitoring of RAID status.

Monitor and Report
Unlike other RAID systems in the market, T8-S6.TB2 fully supports S.M.A.R.T. Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology, and email notification. Our T8-S6.TB2 can notify by email up to four email addresses on any predefined event, even just a daily report of the RAID itself. This certainly will take out the guess work and uncertainty about the storage Raid array.

Five Stars Review by Charles Holden - WA

I've always been on the lookout for a very fast, flexible, large-volume storage solution to hold my all of my photographs in the Lightroom catalogue, and drive for backup. After getting my nMP, I decided to give DATOptic Eight bay Thunderbolt 2 short rack a try out - with 60 days money back - why not? - I previously used the Lacie 5big, and while it worked well, it didn't have the capacity I wanted (32TB raw capacity) or the type of RAID array I preferred level 6 just for more protection. The other drive I considered was the Pegasus 2 and Areca eight bay drive, but I settled on DATOptic, cuz I can get on the phone to call them for support, beside the Areca after reading better overall reviews about it on various web boards. I have been extremely pleased with the device. It was easy to load...I connect it via Ethernet, then just type in its IP address and format it from Safari. The IP setup system is a bit rudimentary and sometimes lags, but if you're a little patient with it, you will have no problems setting things up how you want. And, it's incredibly fast. As a RAID 6 setup with a total of 24TB storage space, it runs at roughly 1050 MB/sec read and write, with eight 4TB Hitachi NAS drives mounted. I've had it for several months now and have yet to encounter a single problem of any kind. Speed, reliability, easy to use, RAID flexibility...this device offers it all. I would recommend this drive to anyone who needs a fast storage solution. (Posted on 6/9/2016)
