EXP is the best solution to expand a mass external storage capacity for hosting server or Mac/PC workstation with the innovative PCI-e expander architecture for you to use one of your system PCI-e Bus become the many as you need for your storage system. Also the mAGE316U40-PCIE-
EXP is designed with SAS/SATA backplane and built-in a PCI-Express slot for 16 ports internal SAS/SATA PCI-Express RAID control card direct connect to HDD backplane with RAID function for data protection and transfer performance. You install the RAID HBA to each storage chassis; this helps you to maintain the data transfer performance will not drop when your storage system capacity is increase that mean iStarUSA provide you the virtually unlimited storage space expansion with data transfer performance.
EXP storage system package is including a PCI-Express host adaptor for you to convert the host system internal PCI-Express slot becoming external port and an external PCI-e 8x cable for connection between host system and storage system in up to 20Gbps high-speed data transfer bandwidth with the substantial secure connector lock to prevent accidental removal. This direct link eliminates latency introduced by the conversion of other interfaces to PCI Express and provides superior bandwidth of 20Gbps over FireWire 800Mb; SATA 3Gb; Dual Fiber Channel 8Gb.
EXP provides sixteen removable drive trays with key lock and each tray built-in power, activity and failure LED indicators for displaying the status of each single Hard Disk. The HDD backplane supports SGPIO for HDD fail signal management and environmental detecting for fan stop or temperature over the 55℃ with failure LEDs and mutable buzzer alarm. The chassis build with heavy-duty cold-rolled steel metal manufactured to EIA-RS310D industry Standard with RoHS Compliance. Advance thermal cooling design with two of 7.5cm tool-less hot-swap blowers fan for self-contained ventilation that optimize airflow to keep system cooler and easy maintenance. You may also choice the optional dual redundant power supply for the PSU failure protection.
