4U 24Bay 16Gb Quad-Port Fibre Channel Hardware RAID Storage

Single or Dual Redundant RAID Controller


The CineRAID ARC-9224S is a high performance 24bay 16Gb Fibre Channel Rack featuring single-upgradable or dual-active (active-active or passive-active) hardware RAID controller/s, designed with the latest advanced 12Gb SAS 3.0 infrastructure and backplane to support the latest 12Gb SATA/SAS Drives. The optional Dual Active-Active controller architecture doubles the available host bandwidth ensuring maximum utilization and throughput. Fail-over protection, If one controller fails, the other controller can transparently take over. Performance and scalability driven, each controller is powered by a dual core RAID-on-Chip (ROC) 1.2Ghz  processor for powerful and proven RAID data storage performance. The high density 24bay chassis supports single or multiple RAID array/s of up to 240 terabytes and fully scalable, allowing you to add additional JBOD expander units supporting up to 256 drives total  for when you need more storage.


Also available in 12 and 16bay solutions.
