Thunderbolt™ 3 brings you an extreme high data transfer speed
SR8-TB3 supports Thunderbolt™ 3 interface for an extreme high data transfer speed. And both of the two TB3 ports are equipped with a up to 40Gb/s data transfer rate which is 4 times faster than USB 3.1 Gen 2 ,2 times faster than Thunderbolt™ 2. You could definitely use it to play your 4K high-resolution films with no any lagging hassle. Thunderbolt™ 3 interface not only brings you this high data transfer rate advantage, it also let you chain maximum up to another 6 more SR8-TB3 products (or other compatible storage products).
RAID 0 functionality increases storage speed and performance
The new SR8-TB3-B is equipped with RAID 0 storage mode, which enables user to attain up to 1500MB/s read speed with SR8-TB3-B's Thunderbolt™ transmission interface. Whether it is used for searching and editing photo galleries, or video editing and synthesis, it promises to deliver a smooth and easy operation.
RAID 5 mode provides highest data parity function ensure your data security
RAID 5 mode provides both of the read-&-write efficiency and the data protection features for your daily works. Under RAID 5 mode, SR8-TB3-B would need at least 3 or more HDDs to start working. And if anyone of your HDDs is defect, your SR8-TB3-B would still work fine for you, but just with no more data protection feature. Comparing to RAID 0 and RAID 1 modes, it's no doubt that RAID 5 is your best choice.
RAID 6 mode, double security is an even better solution in enterprise
To you, an Enterprise MIS supervisor, the data protection feature would be your first priority to choose your storage product. Comparing to RAID 5, RAID 6 provides you a way better data protection level. Under RAID 6 mode, SR8-TB3-B would need at least 4 HDDs to start working. RAID 6 mode provides you the even better data protection than that of RAID 5's from its extremely ZERO Possibility that two HDDs become defect at the same time! SR8-TB3-B still works perfect even though two of the whole HDDs are defect at the same time which won't happen at all!
SR8-TB3-B to support 8 x 3.5" / 2.5" SAS/SATA HDD/SSD
To bundle with four new easy-to-use Trays, SR8 supports any kinds of 3.5" & 2.5" SAS/SATA HDD/SSD. And also, SR8's aluminum housing help protecting your data from its solid structure design and the excellent heat dissipation.

Compact and portable too
For field editing applications, the SR8-TB3-B can be made portable as it comes with a grip handle, which you can choose to install for making creative contents mobile convenient and less bulky.
MCU feature to provide you in-chassis temperature control
SR8-TB3-B is also designed with the MCU feature which monitors and helps improving its in-chassis system temperature. While the system temperature rises up to 55 degree-C (131 degree-F), MCU will bump up the fans with full speed; and once system temperature goes down to 50 degree-C (122 degree-F), you could manually adjust fan switch on the rear, MCU would reduce the fan speed down to a half speed for a better green user environment from a less fan noise and lower power consumption.
The solid aluminum chassis pluses two powerful low noise Fans
SR8-TB3-B is designed with a rigid mechanical structure and covered by a high finishing quality aluminum chassis. It's also designed with two 8 cm large quiet fans to help getting rid of heat efficiently!
