ARC-8050T3 SAN
(24-bays Thunderbolt™ 3 Rackmount Storage)


ARC-8050T3 SAN is a 24-bay Thunderbolt 3 rackmount SAS/SATA RAID storage with RAID control capabilities solution for both PC and Mac. ARC-8050T3 SAN incorporated on-board 1.2GHz dual core ROC and 4GB 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 SAN is a storage solution that offers 9 x Thunderbolt 3 ports allowing connection to nine clients which are able to simultaneously edit, transfer and share data on PCIe RAID storage over Thunderbolt connection at unprecedented speeds. The reserved Mac mini caddy on 4U 24-bays enclosure is the best solution for adding one Mac mini server and computer to an ARC-8050T3 SAN rack chassis. ARC-8050T3 SAN leverages Thunderbolt interface and transforms it into a more flexible Thunderbolt SAN architecture and eliminates the high costs of Fibre Channel SAN or 10 Gigabit Ethernet.
