Introducing the latest QUIET tower - DATOptic's T8C-S12.TB2 is a turn-key Thunderbolt 3 Eight (8) bay SAS 12Gb | SATA (6Gb) Raid system - readily connectable to Thunderbolt 2 system - in compact solid quiet tower chassis, ready to deploy supporting RAID 0, 1, 3, 5, 6,10/50/60 and or hot spare based on field proving RAID engine coupling with high performance of Dual Core RAID-on-Chip 1.2GHz, 1GB onboard DDR3-1600 SDRAM with ECC onboard cache.
With sustain data transfer rate up to 2600MB/s (with SSD), and enterprise RAID features, our T8C-S12.TB2 is a MUST have data storage for high-performance applications 4k/6K editing, data mining, database servers, streaming server...
With the latest firmware (1.54 or later), our thunderbolt RAID supports Self-Encrypting Disks (SED) for protection of data against loss or theft. Protection is achieved by the use of encryption technology on the drives. The McRAID storage management allows SED keys to be created and managed as well as create/delete RAID sets.
Let you secure your data with ease. A must-have feature for confidential data. All SED functions are integrated into the intuitive and user-friendly McRAID manager interface for easy access.
With the direct connection to system host via Thunderbolt 2 20Gb/s bidirectional high performance I/O, T8C-S12.TB2 provides unparalleled high reliability of data protection for users who demand enterprise-class performance. T8C-S12.TB2 not only provides a highly reliable sustained data rate over 40Gb/sec bandwidth, and support spin down drives when not in use to extend service life, including automatic drive insertion/removal detection and rebuilding.
Finally, HDD manufacturers agree to a universal connectivity of SATA/SAS HDD, where SSCI or IDE/ATA this never happen due to the location of connection was anywhere but the same place. Take advantage of SATA/SAS specification a tray-less is realized to save time and money, To replace an HDD is in seconds instead of minutes due to finding tool.
Easy RAID Management
T8C-S12.TB2 utilizes built-in firmware with an embedded terminal emulation which can be accessed via hotkey at BIOS booting screen (PC platform) locally or remotely accessed via HTTP proxy and/or IP address.
- Hotkey at BIOS boot-up screen. This pre-boot manager utility can be used to simplify the setup and management of the RAID configuration (PC x86 Platform).
- RAID set up and management can be accessed via a 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 a 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, T8C-S12.TB2 fully supports S.M.A.R.T. Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology, and email notification. Our T8C-S12.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 guesswork and uncertainty about the storage Raid array.
