Product Overview ARC-8050T2 is the most complete 6Gb/s SAS 8-bay Thunderbolt 2 box with RAID control capabilities solution for both PC and Mac. ARC-8050T2 incorporated on-board dual core 800Mhz RAID-On-Chip and with 1GB DDR3-1333 memory to deliver true high performance hardware RAID protection against drive failure. This combination helps to provide a high performance storage device perfect for the video editor working with Real time multi-stream HD and 4K workflows. It runs efficiently without disruption or major drops in performance to meet the requirements of 4K data workflow. It is so quick it allows for 4K displays at the same time as daisy chaining ARC-8050T2 and doing a simultaneous 4K output and file transfers while maintaining maximum throughput.

ARC-8050T2 supports the hardware RAID 6 engine to allow two HDDs failures without impact the existing data and performance. It allows users to hot swap drive in the event of a drive failure with zero downtime. Its high data availability and protection derives from many advanced RAID features on ARC-8050T2 RAID box design. Intelligent power On/Off function on storage turns power in unison with the host computer power status. It can intelligently power down the unit after the thunderbolt host shuts down everything for data integrity. ARC-8050T2 also supports a battery backup option that protects all data in cache memory in the event of unexpected power outage. Board-level hardware encryption manages any kinds of drives attached to ARC-8050T2 without impacting the performance for higher levels of security.

Thunderbolt 2 is full backward compatibility to the same cables and connectors used with today's Thunderbolt. It pushes speed to 20Gb/s and enables 4K video file transfer and display simultaneously. ARC-8050T2 is equipped with dual Thunderbolt 2 ports for connecting to any Thunderbolt 2-enabled host such as the new Mac Pro, and offers an additional Thunderbolt 2 port for daisy-chaining other peripherals. The Thunderbolt daisy-chaining allows connection of up to six devices, so customers can connect ARC-8050T2 for massive amounts of video storage with a single Thunderbolt connection to their host computer. ARC-8050T2 can meet the demand of users when working with rich, ultra- high resolution media through Thunderbolt 2 interface. Features • 800 MHz Dual core ROC for RAID core and SAS microcode

Mixed Drive Sizes

How well does this cope with drives of different capacities?

Eg. I have a Synology NAS that I started with 2TB drives and now has a mixture of 2, 3 and 4 TB drives in a RAID 6 configuration, this is easy to manage and as soon as the 4th drive of the largest size is accommodated the full capacity is available.

Will this Array make use of all the capacity when the minimum number of larger drives are added? Eg. if it is in RAID 5 and has three 4 TB drives will I get 22TB available in one volume when I insert three 5 TB drives?
