The 16-Bay Expansion Enclosure from QNAP offers16 bays to provide additional storage space for your ZFS NAS server. Each bay can accommodate a 2.5" or 3.5" drive that utilizes a SAS or SATA interface. To deliver the data on the drives quickly, this enclosure connects to your ZFS server via SFF-8088 6 Gb/s connectors. Also, three 60mm hot-swap fans are on board for cooling your drives.
The EJ1600-US expansion enclosure connects to your NAS via high-speed mini SAS cables. Featuring a 6 Gb/s SAS interface on the chassis, it ensures fast data passthrough from 6 Gb/s SAS-enabled Enterprise ZFS NAS servers even when using SATA or SAS storage drives. This is especially useful for virtualization applications and large data applications that require high-performance interconnection such as video surveillance, archiving large data and TV broadcast storage. To provide businesses with optimized efficiency and maximized ROI, the EJ1600 connects to the Enterprise ZFS NAS via a dual path mini-SAS design to sustain continuous operations even if an external JBOD cable is disconnected.
