SAS and SATA JBOD's the Easy Way

Published by Richard Parry on 18th Mar 2013

We’re pleased to introduce some new product lines. JBOD’s!

JBOD enclosures are purpose built for use as storage enclosures with SAS and SATA architectures.

The JBOD enclosures we have support a variety of drive configurations with in-built SAS Expanders. The models we currently have available and recently introduced are 12 and 24 bay versions.

These are JBOD’s with a built in single-port SAS Expander manufactured by Asus and a Zippy/Emacs Redundant Power Supply. This combination allows for an Enterprise grade hardware DAS (Direct Attached Storage) solution and is perfect for use as additional storage for single servers or for virtualisation environments.

Each JBOD has a single SAS Expander built in. This allows a single 8088 external cable to be connected to a suitable HBA/RAID controller that supports SAS Drives. Although the technology used is SAS, the drives you use in the chassis can be a combination of SATA or SAS. This does depend on your RAID card, but most RAID cards support both.

Our JBOD’s are also SAS II, so are SAS I (3Gbps) and SAS II (6Gbps). In addition they are SATA Compatible, so will work with SATA II (3Gbps) and SATA III (6Gbps) drives.

You can use a combination of SSD or traditional hard drives up to 3TB (as of our current testing and market availability) drives in each enclosure.
