SAS2x36 SAS Expander

Take datacenter and storage subsystems to new heights of reliability and scalability

Currently Viewing:

The SAS2x36 Expander increases datacenter and storage subsystem reliability and scalability, leveraging integrated ARM processing and the 6Gb/s SAS and SATA interface to deliver a wide range of functionality and exceptional storage performance. From discovery and enclosure management to essential security features (zoning, random number generation, etc.), the SAS2x36 combines backward SAS compatibility with forward-looking scalability for higher total enclosure value.
  • Enable higher enclosure capacities through 36 PHY edge expansion
  • Ensure ample enclosure bandwidth through integrated RAM and an ARM926 processor
