OWC Mercury Rack Pro Bundle

4.0TB 1U 4 Bay Rack Storage Solution
+ OWC mini-SAS PCIe HBA Card

OWC affordability, reliability, and ease of use in a single 1U rack space.
Need massive amounts of storage?
This 4.0TB system is perfect for high-performance video ingest, and fast A/V editing and offers non-redundant storage (RAID 0), or mirrored (RAID 0/10). Affordable, reliable, and easy to use for either desktop or rackmount applications. The components of this bundle are:
Rack Pro
It's a four-bay drive dock that can sit on your desk, or be mounted in a rack. With its high-capacity and 24Gb/s mini-SAS speeds, the RackPro offers a great combination of drive access flexibility, and sheer data throughput. All four drives in the Mercury Rack Pro show up as individual drives, so you can mix and match drives of any size and brand and hot-swap the drives at will. The tray-less drive bay design makes drive management, access, and replacement quick and easy while the mini-SAS architecture takes advantage of mini-SAS speeds, and expansion possibilities as you add more drives or racks.
OWC PCIe 2 Port Host Bus Adapter (HBA)
Whether you're a small enterprise working with big data, or large creative studio working with sizable high-resolution files, the OWC Jupiter mini-SAS PCIe Host Bus Adapter Card has the speed and reliability that you need. The 2-port mini-SAS PCIe HBA Card installs into any computer that accepts a PCIe card to let you experience the performance benefits of OWC Jupiter mini-SAS enterprise-class storage.

The OWC mini-SAS PCIe HBA Card allows you to use a single external mini-SAS connection for up to 24Gbps throughput, or use both connections for up to 48Gbps performance. This card is based on technology from an award-winning and trusted source; LSI.

Supporting more than 1,000 SAS addresses, and with enough processing power to support over 500,000 I/Os per second, this is truly an enterprise-grade adapter.
  • High performance with 6Gb/s data transfer rates per channel
  • Support for RAID modes 0,1, and 10
  • 8 lane PCIe 2.0 host interface.
From day one, the OWC Mercury Rack Pro Series has been designed to be everything you'd hope for and more!

OWC 2-port Jupiter mini-SAS PCIe HBA Card

  • Maximum connectivity and performance in a low profile form factor
  • 8 lane PCI Express 2.0 provides fast signaling for high-bandwidth applications and broad compatibility with latest motherboards
  • High performance with 6Gb/s data transfer rates per channel
Whether you're a small or large business or a creative studio, the OWC Jupiter mini-SAS PCIe Host Bus Adapter Card has the speed that you need. The 2-port mini-SAS PCIe HBA Card installs into any computer that accepts a PCIe card to let you experience the extreme performance benefits of OWC Jupiter mini-SAS enterprise-class storage. This performance capability allows the Jupiter PCIe HBA Card to even handle intense video production environments and reduce the likelihood of dropped frames.

More Lanes = More Speed
Mini-SAS is like traffic moving on four lanes on the highway instead of just one lane, so it offers more lanes for data to travel and provides the ability to reach higher speeds. With the mini-SAS PCIe HBA Card, you can use a single mini-SAS connection for up to 24Gbps, or use both connections for up to 48Gbps performance. The mini-SAS PCIe HBA Card supports more than 1,000 SAS addresses and has processing power to support over 500,000 I/Os per second.

Extreme Performance that's easy to install
The low profile mini-SAS PCIe HBA Card comes with a full height bracket and can accommodate an optional low profile mounting bracket that makes it a breeze to install in any server adding SAS 2.0 interface devices to PCI Specification Revision 2.0 hosts. And the mini-SAS PCIe HBA Card is compatible with all major operating systems giving you maximum flexibility.

LSI Technology
Built around LSI technology, Jupiter components are constructed from an award-winning, trusted source to give you maximum peace of mind when using your system.

Recommended mini-SAS Connecting Cables

  • When using Passive/passthrough mini-SAS storage solutions equipped with "6G" 6Gb/s (SATA 3.0 Revision) drives, we strongly recommend only using connecting cables of 1 meter or shorter length due to the increased signal integrity requirements of 6G drives. Active storage solutions such as SAS expander systems equipped with 6G drives can utilize mini-SAS connecting cables up to 10 meters in length.

Macintosh System Requirements

  • Mini-SAS cable included: 1M mini-SAS cable (included) is required for use with SATA/SAS 6Gb/s drives due to signal integrity requirements, longer cable lengths are not supported. When using SATA/SAS 3Gb/s drives, longer cable lengths (sold separately) can be used and are available here.
  • external mini-SAS: Macintosh with external mini-SAS via 3rd party controller card interface, (not included). external mini-SAS requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later. Including ‘Lion’ 10.7.x.
  • Time Machine® Compatible: Mac OS X 10.5 (version introduced) and later.
