 ARC-9224F Series

 16Gb/s Fibre Channel RAID - 24Bay 4U Rackmount w/ 12Gb/s MiniSAS Expansion



The ARC-9224F Series is a 16Gb/s Fibre Channel to 12Gb/s SAS RAID, supporting single or dual (active-active) RAID controller/s attached directly to SATA/SAS mid-plane using Z-PACK HM-Zd high speed connectors for maximum data throughput.  The 12Gb/s SAS interface supports both 12Gb/s SAS disk drives for data-intensive applications and 6Gb/s SATA drives for low-cost bulk storage of reference data.


The 12Gb/s SAS ports expander for performance and easy expansion. When used with 12Gb/s SAS expanders, the controller can provide up to (256) devices through one or more SAS JBODs, making it an ideal solution for enterprise class storage applications that called for maximum configuration flexibility.
