ARC-4038ML (8-Bays 12Gb/s SAS/SATA Disk Box)

The ARC-4038ML is an 8-bay 12Gb/s directly-attached storage enclosures for PC and Mac high capacity storage needs. Designed and leveraged with Areca existing high performance external PCIe RAID adapter, this disk tower can be configured to RAID levels 0, 1, 1E, 3, 5, 6, 10, 30, 50, 60, Single Disk or JBOD, making it an ideal solution for high performance and fault-tolerance protection video data. The ARC-4038ML is a compact disk tower uses only two high speed SFF-8644 connection to the HBA or RAID controller installed in your system. High transfer rates make the ARC-1883X or other 12Gb/s HBA/RAID adapter with ARC-4038ML well suited for audio/video application especially the rapidly growing demand from the Mac video editing markets.

The ARC-4038ML has integrated the 12Gb/s re-driver chip on its backplane. This can guarantee the signal from external connector on the external 12Gb/s SAS HBA/RAID adapter to the ARC-4038ML cable-less backplane connector without compromising performance. The intelligent cooling continuously adapts to environmental conditions by automatically controlling the speed of cooling fans. This super silent design, optimizing balance between noise reduction and necessary cooling, helps the resellers to offer the cost effective storage solution for video editing and digital content creation
