NA333TB3 3U 16 bay Thunderbolt 3 JBOD and PCIe Expansion Product Description

Thunderbolt 3 High-Bandwidth 40Gbps
The Netstor NA333TB3 16 bay Thunderbolt 3 JBOD and PCIe expansion is designed to have greatly high bandwidth for fastest data storage access and operation with multiple professional PCIe cards. Based on the application and demands, users and professionals are able to choose their own desired brand, model of RAID card in the Thunderbolt™ 3 rackmount storage to work. By utilizing a sixteen-port RAID adapter card inside, the Netstor JBOD immediately turns into an enterprise RAID storage with RAID level protection including 0, 1, 10, 3, 5, 6, 30, 50, and 60.

Up to 3 PCIe Cards Expansion
Three PCIe 3.0 slots within the storage chassis are created for users to make easy expansion of varied specialty PCIe cards to the Thunderbolt 3 Mac. Except the required RAID adapter card to be added, the professionals can still choose to attach two more pro cards such as video capture, video transcoding, audio accelerator, network card and so on in the 3U storage to add extra performance to the Thunderbolt Mac.

The Storage Ready for World-Class Editing and Server Application
The Thunderbolt™ 3 storage provides the fastest ever lightning transfer speeds up to 2750 MB/s to the host computer for all kinds of data archiving and real-time editing. Also, the storage’s drive tray has been considerately designed to work with both 2.5” HDD/SSD and 3.5″ hard drive for professionals with diverse demands on speed or immense storage capacity. Additionally, the built-in server-grade 500W low noise redundant PSU ensures application runs 24/7 with no system downtime and continually works with Thunderbolt 3 server.
