8Bay Thunderbolt 3 Hardware RAID



Unleash Your Creativity Faster Than Ever

Thunderbolt™ 3 brings Thunderbolt to USB-C at speeds up to 40Gbps, creating one compact port that does it all – delivering the fastest, most versatile connection. ARC-8050T3 is equipped with dual Thunderbolt 3 ports for connecting to any Thunderbolt 3 enabled Mac or PC host and o daisy-chaining other Thunderbolt 3 devices, while also supplying power for quick notebook charging. The Thunderbolt daisy-chaining allows connection of up to six devices, so customers can connect ARC-8050T3 for massive amounts of video storage with a single Thunderbolt connection to their host computer. ARC-8050T3 can meet the demand of users when working with rich, ultra-high resolution media through Thunderbolt 3 interface. The ARC-8050T3 also sports a full sized DisplayPort video output on its rear, allowing for a quick and easy 4K 60Hz display setup.


Unparalleled Performance

ARC-8050T3-8 is an 8bay desktop SAS/SATA Hardware RAID Storage solution for both PC and Mac working environments. The ARC-8050T3-8 performance is driven by an on-board RAID-On-Chip and ECC SDRAM memory to deliver true high performance hardware RAID protection against drive failure. This combination helps to provide a high performance storage device ready to take on real time multi-steam HD, 4K, 6K and 8K workflows.


Enabling an Easy-to-Manage Storage Utility

Configuration and monitoring can be managed either through the LCD control panel, Thunderbolt interface or LAN port. The ArcSAP graphical user interface is designed for quick managing and configuring the ARC-8050T3-8 RAID storage. The intelligent cooling continuously adapts to environmental conditions by automatically controlling the speed of the cooling fans but still keeping a low-noise working environment.


Enterprise Class Data Availability and Security


The ARC-8050T3-8 supports Hardware RAID 5 for uninterrupted data availability in a single drive failure event or  RAID 6 for dual drive failure safeguard. Hot-Swappable drive bays provides zero downtime during a drive failure event. Intelligent power On/Off function powers the ARC-8050T3-8 unit in unison with the host computer during startup and shut-down for extra level of data integrity. Board-level hardware encryption manages all drives attached to the ARC-8050T3-8 without impacting the performance for higher levels of security and protection.
