ARECA ARC-5028T2

Description
The Thunderbolt daisy-chaining allows connection of up to six devices, so customers can connect ARC-5028T2 for massive amounts of video storage with a single Thunderbolt connection to their host computer. ARC-5028T2 can meet the demand of users when working with rich, ultra-high resolution media through Thunderbolt 2 interface. The SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface offers high-performance connectivity and is backward compatibility with any computer running compatible versions of Mac OS X (such as Mac Pro) or Windows.
ARC-5028T2 is a 6-bay 6Gb/s SAS Thunderbolt 2/USB 3.0 storage with RAID control capabilities solution for Mac and PC environment. ARC-5028T2 incorporated high performance ROC and 1GB DDR3 memory with ECC protection to deliver true hardware RAID for the video editor working with real time multistream 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-5028T2 and doing a simultaneous 4K output and file transfers while maintaining maximum throughput.

Areca ARC-8050T2

Description
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.
