Quick Overview

Xpander Rackmount 16 Gen3; 19", 4U raclkmount PCIe slot expansion unit featuring 16x PCIe Gen3 x8 expansion slots (2x 8-slot MIBs),2x 1500W power supplies, 2x 2m data transfer cables and 2x PCIe Gen3 x8 HICs. Mounting hardware included.



Manufacturer Part Number: XPRMG3-1624U

Xpander Rack Mount 16 4U is a rack mount PCI Express (PCIe) expansion enclosure that enables connection of 16 single-wide PCIe Solid-State Drives (SSDs) to a host computer. The PCIe SSDs can be either half-height (HH) or full-height (FH). The host computer(s) must have at least two PCIe x16 slots available for each host interface controller (HIC).

Rack Mount 16 provides two Main Interface Boards (MIBs) connected to each of one or two host computers with a PCIe x16 cable and eight PCIe x8 slots for a total of 16 x single-wide PCIe SSDs such as Intel DC P3600 Series or Seagate Nytro XP3600 Series. Each MIB connects via a PCIe x16 cable to a HIC in a host computer. Connect each MIB to one of two HICs in one host or each MIB to a HIC in each of two host computers. Each MIB inside Rack Mount 8 connects to one host computer.

One host computer can support both MIBs inside the Rack Mount 8 enclosure if the host has two available PCIe x16 slots. Rack Mount 16 also supports other PCIe adapters with multiple Input / Output (IO) ports such as FireWire, USB 3.0 or high-definition (HD) audio.

Xpander Rackmount 16 includes four cooling fans, two 1,500W power supplies and two power cords as well as two Main Interface Boards (MIBs), two PCIe x16 HICs and two external PCIe x16 cables. It does not include installation media because installation requires no driver or other software. The only drivers you install are for the devices you install in Xpander.

Quick Start without Detail
Install a PCIe SSD in the host system and install device drivers. Once you have verified operation, shut down, move the PCIe SSD to Xpander, install the HIC in the same slot within the host computer, connect GPU-Xpander to the HIC using the cable provided and connect power to Xpander Rackmount 16. Boot the host computer. If the host operating system (OS) is plug-n-play, the OS detects the GPUs and loads device drivers.
