SAS3x36 SAS Expander

Enhance your external storage environment with high scalability and performance

Currently Viewing:

The SAS3x36 offers the highest class of scalability and performance available in expanders today. Enabled for today’s latest 12Gb/s SAS and SATA specifications, the SAS3x36 supports T-10 zoning across 255 zones, port mirroring, spread spectrum clocking, and five I2C interfaces for enclusure management and debugging, making it ideal for top-tier storage solutions. The DataBolt™ Bandwidth Optimizer aggregates bandwidth to provide 12Gb/s SAS performance using existing 6Gb/s or 3Gb/s devices, making it ideal for top-tier storage solutions.
 
  • Enable higher enclosure capacities through 36 PHY edge expansion
  • Provide high device throughput with SAS and SATA support up to 12Gb/s, including wide port support
  • Leverage DataBolt technology to aggregate bandwidth from lower-speed drives for higher total performance
  • Ensure ample enclosure bandwidth through 2MB of integrated RAM and an ARM Cortex-R4 300 MHz processor
