8 BAY 12Gb/s SAS JBOD/RAID Desktop Enclosure

Model: ARC-4038ML   


The advancement of 12Gb/s SAS connectivity allows the new ARC-4038ML 8-Bay SAS unit to transfer end-to-end 12Gb/s storage speed between the storage enclosure and the host computer when combined with the Areca ARC-1226-8X or ARC-1883X PCIe RAID Controller. The ARC-4038ML is the affordable, performance driven storage solution for any digital data workflow. 

The ARC-4038 supports 12Gb/s SAS/SATA HDDs or SSDs. But still backwards compatible with 6Gb/s drives which take advantage of the latest Integrated DataBolt technology which allows for bandwidth optimization, buffering 6Gb/s data and then transfers it out to the host at 12Gb/s speeds in order to match the bandwidth between faster hosts and slower SAS or SATA devices.

Supports multi-steam SD, DVCPRO HD, Apple ProRes 422/444, HD, UHD, 2K, 4K, 8K and uncompressed video workflows with ease.
