The new PRO RX generation 2 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 RX. A 12 and 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 RX implements the latest PCI-express Extender technology to provide super fast, low cost, redundant storage with upwards of 16TB capacity in a 3u 19" rackmount space. The PRO RX comes in 12 or 16 bay configurations with 8, 12 or 16 pre-loaded drive models.
The highly reliable high performance RAID controller supports RAID 0, 1, 3, 5 and 6 connects to upwards of 16 SATA II 3Gb/s 7200RPM disk modules. An impressive set of data rates breaks all records, more on this below.
40Gb per second HBE
The PRO RX Host Bus Extender (HBE) implements the latest 20Gb/sec PCI-express Extender technology, enabling the extension of the computerís PCI-express signals to the PRO RX enclosure. The HBE is super fast, power efficient and runs cool. The HBE is capable of up to 8 lanes of the PCI-express speed, enabling the RAID controller to run at full speed. 800MB+/sec is super fast, check out the full performance graph for the complete map of the PRO RX performance capabilities.
The full metal secure locking PCI-express Extender Cable connects the HBE and PRO RX enclosure, up to 10-meter can be used for machine room connectivity.
Full Speed at Full Load
Check out the performance map to the right, the PRO RX simply does not slow down! Even when it is fully loaded with a bunch of media, the PRO RX keeps on going. An impressive set of data rates breaks all records, in the performance RAID 0 stripe mode the PRO RX measures 800MB+/sec, in the drive redundant RAID 5 mode the PRO RX measures 750MB+/sec, even with the double disk redundant RAID 6 mode the PRO RX delivers over 700MB/sec. Again, examine the graph for yourself, these performance rates are truly sustained from empty to full, not just when it is empty.
RAID Management GUI
A web browser accessed RAID Console provides quick and easy RAID management. The PRO RX 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 RX connection is strong and secure. The PRo RX 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 RX 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.
Never run out of storage! When your storage needs grows, the PRO RX can be expanded using the PRO EX PCI-e Expander. The PRO EX can accommodate up to 7 PRO RX systems, that is a total of 112TB. If that is not enough, the PRO EX can be daisy chained to provide a virtually unlimited storage environment.
The PRO RX is share ready using the up coming PRO Share high speed networking product.
Real-time Multiple Streams
PRO RX 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.
