The RAID Machine S6212RM 12-bay SAS RAID Enclosure is a 2U chassis rated at 12Gb/s using an SFF-8644 HD MiniSAS connection to the controller in your server. It is an excellent choice for proven, reliable and high performance DAS.

The S6212RM design is completely plug & play, with all hotswap components, redundant power supply and complete thermal management. We combine solid construction, 48-hour burn-in testing, lifetime phone and email support, and 3-year warranty to provide you with a robust package.

Special Notes

  • Single RAID controller configuration is model S6212RM. With dual controllers the RAID Machine model is D6212RM.
  • We recommend SAS drives be used. SATA drives will work fine in single controller configurations. For dual controller configurations SATA drives will need mux boards which add cost. SAS drives are dual ported already and do not need mux boards.
