B series 16 bay 3.5 LFF

RDL-BS16G4-R3 RAID system with
4 x 1 GbE, 1 x 5 Gbps USB 3.0 and 1 x 6 Gbps eSATA host ports


The RDL-BS16G4-R3 is a cost-effective 16 bay RAID storage subsystem. It is designed to provide a truly innovative multiple host interfaces to address the needs of different cost-effective RAID storage requirements. Correrspondingly configured, the RAIDdeluxe can provide a high degree of fault tolerance by using RAID Level 6 technology and advanced array management features. The 4 port iSCSI, USB 3.0 and eSATA connections deliver high performance, advanced function, high availability, and scalable storage capacity with both direct iSCSI host and IP network connectivity.


The new system features 16 hot-swappable 3.5 LFF 6 Gbps SATA hard disk / SSD drive bays in a 19-inch 3U rackmount unit.

With RAIDdeluxe, the power supply is directly cooled for better airflow. This eliminates pockets of dead air to prevent overheating of the subsystem.
