8-Bay Thunderbolt™ 2 Hardware RAID Diskless Storage Solution

The RocketStor 6328AS is a hardware RAID powered 8-Bay diskless Storage solution designed for high-performance Thunderbolt™ 2 host platforms. The modular form factor pairs a high degree of flexibility with cost-effective storage expansion capability.

RAID 50 Performance Over 2,000MB/s!

Uncompromised Hardware RAID Storage Performance

Unlike PCIe Expansion-based solutions, the Thunderbolt™ 2 connectivity provided by the RocketStor 6328AS Solution is completely dedicated to storage performance; SAS and SATA hard drives hosted by the 8-Bay tower can fully utilize the 20GB/s of transfer bandwidth.

The built-in hardware RAID controller supports RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50 and JBOD configurations and delivers the uncompromised performance and superior data protection demanded by professional 4K media applications.

DVMode Performance Assurance Technology:
DVMode maintains consistent, sustained high-performance data transfer - a key component of any storage system dedicated to post production applications.

Flexible, Versatile Design Streamlines Storage Upgrades

The highly versatile, modular form factor streamlines storage upgrade and expansion projects. Unlike preconfigured storage solutions, customers are not restricted to a specific set of drives, or saddled with capacity limitations and costly upgrade paths. The 8 removable, hot-swappable bays support any industry standard 3.5" SAS and SATA hard drive. Customers can avoid the expense of replacing entire storage appliances and upgrade at their own pace.

The RocketStor 6328AS can support 48TB of hardware RAID storage via thee simple cable connections: attach the adapter to your editing platform using the Thunderbolt cable, then attach each Mini-SAS cable from the adapter to the 8-Bay tower. Hardware setup and installation could not be easier!

Comprehensive RAID & Storage Management Interface

The streamlined web-based user interface simplifies the storage configuration process and allows customers to quickly asses total available capacity, the status of individual hard drives or SSD's, and the health of RAID and JBOD configurations. Optional auto rebuild and hot spare features add additional layers of data security to redundant RAID 5 and 6 configurations.

Administrators can designate unused drives to automatically take the place of failed units or configure the RocketStor 6328AS to immediately initialize rebuild process by simply plugging in a new drive. Advanced management features allow customers to manage storage remotely via an internet connection or local network, and configure Email notification to inform one or more users of changing storage conditions while outside of the studio.
