Product Overview 8-Bay Thunderbolt™ 2 Hardware RAID Modular 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.

Uncompromised 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.

RAID 50 Performance Over 1100MB/s!

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.

Flexible, Modular 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.

You've probably read the USB Tekspek, and perhaps your intrigue, or product interest, has lead you to look up Firewire as well. The two are similar in some respects, particularly some of the products that use the two technologies. However, Firewire has its differences, which means it has both benefits and drawback when compared to USB. This Tekspek will look at Firewire and also look at it with respect to USB.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very fast but very NOISY! I bought this unit so I could make the move to Thunderbolt. The performance at this price point is fantastic. But, both the RocketStor and especially the Sans Digital disk tower are really noisy. The fan in the SansDigital unit runs flat out all the time. If you are after something fast and affordable, you would struggle to beat this unit. But if you need it to be quiet, proceed with caution! Mine will be going in a desk pedestal which I hope will help dampen the wind noise! 24 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This data storage unit is ideally suited to small businesses I bought this data storage unit to have a raid 5 storage unit accessible over the Thunderbolt 2 interface. This unit has eight storage shelves with a possible 6 TB hard disk storage per shelve. This gave me a total of 42 TB storage and 1 hard disk redundancy. This is sufficient for me handle large files to store computer hard disk images. Setting up the hardware and software was very easy. The data rate over the Thunderbolt interface is excellent for large file transfers. This is the first time I used Scan to buy a computer product. I found their service very professional and I very strongly recommend this company for your computer product purchases. 11 January 2015
