PCIe Gen2 x8 lane
The new PRO RXd uses the all metal drive trays; runs cool, strong and stylish. An enhancement to the original PRO RX for the demanding Video Editing and Content Creation Professionals.
Bigger and faster
Introducing the biggest and the fastest rackmount RAID - the PRO RXd. A 16 bay super fast rackmount RAID storage designed for the Video Editing and Content Creation Professionals.
Adding on to the existing field-proven high performance RAID engine, the PRO RXd implements the latest PCI-express Gen2 Extender technology to provide super fast, low cost, redundant storage with upwards of 48TB capacity in a 3-U 19" rackmount space. The PRO RXd comes in a 16 bay configuration with 1TB, 2TB or 3TB pre-loaded drive models. The PRO RXd also makes expansion easy and cost effective with its built-in x8 PCIe Gen2 expander port. Capacity can be increased by simply connecting to the built-in expander on the PRO RXd. Additional PRO RXd systems can be daisy chained to the built-in x8 PCIe Gen2 expansion port to provide unlimited storage capabilities without sacrificing additional PCIe slots.
The highly reliable high performance RAID controller supports RAID 0, 1, 3, 5 and 6 connects to upwards of 16 SATA/SAS/SSD, 3Gb/6Gb 7200RPM or 15000RPM disk modules. An impressive set of data rates breaks all records, more on this below.
40Gb per second HBE
The PRO RXd Host Bus Extender (HBE)x8 lane Gen2 implements the latest 40Gb/sec PCI-express Extender technology, enabling the extension of the computerís PCI-express Gen2 signals to the PRO RXd enclosure. The HBE x8 lanes is super fast, power efficient and runs cool. The HBE is capable of up to x8 lanes of the PCI-express Gen2 speed, enabling the RAID controllers to run at full speed. 2260MB+/sec in RAID 0 is super fast, check out the full performance graph for the complete map of the PRO RXd performance capabilities.
The full metal secure locking PCI-express Extender Cable connects the HBE and PRO RXd enclosure, up to 10-meter can be used for machine room connectivity.
Full Speed at Full LoadRAID Management GUI
Check out the PCIe Gen2 performance map to the right, the PRO RXd simply does not slow down! Even when it is fully loaded with a bunch of media, the PRO RXd keeps on going. An impressive set of data rates breaks all records, in the performance RAID 0 stripe mode the PRO RXd measures 2260MB+/sec, in the drive redundant RAID 5 mode the PRO RX measures 2020MB+/sec. Performance rates from "empty" disk to "full".\
A web browser accessed RAID Console provides quick and easy RAID management. The PRO RXd comes pre-configured for Mac OS X in RAID 5 protection mode, so it might not be necessary to access the RAID Console initially. But, should you want to change the configuration or manage the disk drives, you are just a couple of clicks away from the RAID Console.
Highly configurable for single RAID or multiple RAIDs with various RAID levels are easily managed using the RAID Console management interface.
Event notification with e-mail, Event Log Views, Controller and drive temperature monitoring are but a few of the full set professional grade manager.
We are well Connected
The PRO RXd connection is strong and secure. The PRO RXd not only protects your data with the latest RAID options, we are also well connected to keep your data secured. The connectors used in the PRO RXd are made of metal construction and locks securely in place to prevent accidental removal. Standard 1-meter cable is provided with optional lengths of 3, 7 and 10-meters. A well connected machine works more reliably.
The PRO RXd makes expansion easy and cost effective with its built-in x8 PCIe Gen2 expander port. Additional three PRO RXd systems can be daisy chained through the built-in expansion port to provide additional storage array capacity without sacrificing additional PCIe slots.
Real-time Multiple Streams
PRO RXd technology translates to superior workflow in your creative development, many real-time streams means you will enjoy your work more and get the project completed sooner.
