Port Multiplier Enclosures & Accessories

6G port multipliers are now in all of our rackmount and tower JBODs unless stated otherwise.

SATA port multiplier enclosures feature a single eSATA port per 5 drives and work with port-multiplier-capable controllers only. They are a distinctly different setup from our multilane SAS/SATA enclosures.

On the plus side, controller and cabling cost is very low. You can also have 5 or 10 bays in a tower enclosure as opposed to 4 or 8 with our other solutions. If necessary, it is possible to convert the connection to USB3.0 via our eSATA to USB adapters.

On the other hand, performance in RAID modes will be limited compared to multilane units. You will be limited to non-caching controllers and you will not be able to use RAID 6.

At PC PitStop we build our own port multiplier enclosures and pair them with several different controllers from Highpoint, Silicon Image or Marvell according to your needs. Give us a call and we'd be happy to discuss the details with you.
