ARC-8050T3 Rackmount
(12/24-bays Thunderbolt™ 3 RAID Storage)


ARC-8050T3 rackmount is the 12/24-bay Thunderbolt 3 rackmount SAS/SATA RAID storage with RAID control capabilities solution for both PC and Mac. ARC-8050T3 rackmount incorporated on-board 1.2GHz dual core ROC and 2GB DDR3-1866 ECC SDRAM 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.

Thunderbolt™ 3 brings Thunderbolt to USB-C at speeds up to 40 Gbps, creating one compact port that does it all – delivering the fastest, most versatile connection to any dock, display, or data device. ARC-8050T3 rackmount is equipped with dual Thunderbolt 3 ports for connecting to any Thunderbolt 3-enabled host and offers an additional Thunderbolt 3 port for daisy-chaining other peripherals, while also supplying power for quick notebook charging. The Thunderbolt daisy-chaining allows connection of up to six devices, so customers can connect ARC-8050T3 rackmount for massive amounts of video storage with a single Thunderbolt connection to their host computer.
