SAS / SATA Enclosures (no expander)

Our tower and rackmount SAS enclosures offer reliable, inexpensive external RAID or JBOD storage with hot-swap capability for both SAS and SATA drives. You also get maximum flexibility in choosing controllers of varying capabilities. 4 and 8 bay enclosures are driven directly by the controller, while 12 to 24 bay enclosures include an expander module. We have included configuration options for each enclosure below to help you sort through the field and pick the drives, controllers and cables right for your needs. Everything we offer here are tried, tested solutions with utmost reliability and performance at great value.

While many are displayed on the enclosure pages, you can also view the controllers here. Of course, at least with controllers (and sometimes even with drives) there are quite a few details to consider. Let us know if we can help.
