JBOD Storage Expansion 12Gb/s SATA SAS SSD drives - JetStor SAS 816J

JetStor SAS 816J is a 16 bay 3U rackmount JBOD unit. The 12Gb SAS JBOD accommodates optional dual controllers, the latest SAS 3.0 12Gb/s interface which boosts the throughput up to 4,800MB/s per host. Based on this powerful performance, the JetStor SAS 816J 12Gb JBOD can efficiently meet demands for Windows Server 2012/2016 projects.

The JetStor SAS 816J incorporates the latest enhancements in SAS along with LSI Databolt bandwidth optimizer technology (EDFB, End Device Frame Buffering). Using Databolt, it delivers optimized throughput by allowing users to gain 12Gb/s host speeds with current-generation 6Gb/s drives.  It is also a versatile SAS3 / SATA3 disk expansion system and offers GUI management to monitor enclosure environmental conditions through a remote connection.

Low service and integration costs are assured by the JetStor's cableless design, two redundant hot-swappable power supplies with two independent power inputs and turbo cooling fans. Three year warranty comes standard with every JBOD and covers all components.

The JetStor SAS 816J JBOD can be connected to internal HBAs or RAID controllers. Please download HBA HCL (Hardware Compatibility List)
