Product Description

The RAX®840-XJ JBOD rackmount enclosure offers fast 6 Gbps speeds with two multilane SFF-8088 interfaces that support eight 3.5” SATA hard drives. Multilane means there is only one cable instead of four. With 6 Gbps speeds, the RAX840-XJ is the ideal solution for heavy-duty, post-production audio and video editing, storage, or backups of large amounts of data.

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.

The RAID Bundle includes the RAX840-XJ 8-drive SAS/SATA storage tower, a powerful SAS/SATA RAID PCIe host card from ATTO Technologies (model R680), and cables. Capable of RAID 5 data speeds over 1100 MB/s, this solution outperforms even the fastest Thunderbolt products.

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 a powerful 6 Gbps tower enclosure for 3.5-inch hard drives will find the RAX840-XJ Bundle a reliable device. Find a reseller near you or buy online.
