Just updated to a new Proavio IS316JS 48TB RAID SAS box to an Areca 1882 on the server. We but 3TB Hitachi Enterprise drives in each of the 16 slots. It was very easy to configure and set up.

This is then set up as shared storage using ATTO FS11 & FS14 10GIG ethernet cards. Kudos to Bob Zelin for getting all this up and running. He is a Maestro and the Man!

We are seeing 1700MB/s speeds when running the AJA speed test on the server. This is incredibly fast. Over the 10 Gig network we are seeing about 400MB/s on each client.

Proavio has made a great 16 bay box. It is well built-- redundant power supply and fans-- just a terrific workhorse. And it looks great in the rack. Well built with style.

Just to note, I don't work for any of the companies listed. I am an enduser writing about my experiences with the products.

Each one does 2200MB/s read speeds, or are they striped together? How are they connected and to what? Shouldn't the total also include a Fibre Channel card?

This is what I am not getting. How do you "stripe", or more correctly, connect two identical quad-channel units to a single quad-channel card?

Further, each one has its own controller, each would have its own RAID5 volume, unless you actually have a main and and a SAS expander unit - which is a wholly different animal from what you described originally.

Ok here i go
i have two AR212F8 1TB x 12 x 2 units = 24Tb / 6 = 4 volumes of Raid 5

four RAID volumes (either RAID 0,5,6) using six hard drives per volume and then using Windows Disk Utility to striped the four volumes. The Fibre card we are using is a .4-port 8GB/s Emulex LPE12004-m8

Both AR212F8 single RAID controller
When you buy two units it becomes dual controller
So you take 2 out puts from each unit and plug in to 4-port 8GB/s Emulex LPE12004-m8

Hope this helps

Sanrj,

You are comparing TWO 12-bay units that you paid more money for than the 16-bay unit Warren described, and saying your configuration is "much better"?

"Much better" how, exactly?

Maybe your configuration works for you, and this is the best purchase you ever made - for your purposes. Why walk into someone else's thread and say that your stuff is "much better"? Especially that so far, there is little evidence to that?

Did you also not see that Warren's setup is optimized for shared editing using 10GbE cards on client machines, something you haven't even tried on your system?

Mine is striped as a RAID 6. I didn't pay as much as you. The box is IS 316JS is less than $3000. I'm also not hooked up fiber channel but duplex direct connect SAS to the server and 10GE to the clients.

i did not want to reinvest in 5 year so Fiber was my choice

i did talk to enhance technology about IS316JS and DS316F8-D they gave me $18000 with HD of 16 or 24TB somthing like that for dual controller and very less space

BASE UNIT
UltraStor DS DS316F8-D $10,879

[Sanrj Patil] "i did not want to reinvest in 5 year so Fiber was my choice"

This, too, is a strong statement suggesting SAS is a dead end. Care to back it up?

Hi Warren,

What Hitachi HDD model did you buy? Was it the Ultrastar 7K3000?
How hey behave with the Areca 1882x?

Best regards

THe Hitachi drives are the Enterprise version. The Areca 1882 works flawlessly and it's fast. It's coupled with the ATTO NS14 10 GE card on the server and each client has a NS11 10 GE card giving about 400 +/- MB second.
