Eight-bay iSCSI Enclosure with TrayFree™ technology
    • iSCSI interface for network-wide access
    • Powerful RAID or JBOD options
    • TrayFree™ bays for fast drive swaps


The RTX 801-IR hard drive enclosure offers a high-performance iSCSI interface that supports four 3.5” SATA hard drives.

TrayFree bays make adding drives effortless. It's as easy as opening the door, sliding the drive in, and closing the door. No screws, no trays. It just works.

iSCSI-enabled enclosures have an Ethernet port and an IP address so that you can connect to a server or computer anywhere on your network. For the best results, we recommend connecting iSCSI enclosures to a computer via a second network interface. Once connected, this computer could then share the volume over your network with normal file sharing methods.

The RTX 801-IR enclosure features a powerful RAID option and works in RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 3, 5, and 6. It also operates in JBOD. For more information on RAID, click here.

Additional features:
  • Support for any capacity 3.5” SATA hard drive
  • 3-year limited warranty
  • Free tech support by phone or email
Anyone who needs an 8-bay iSCSI enclosure for 3.5-inch hard drives will find the RTX801-IR a reliable device. Find a reseller near you or buy online.
