Areca Releases True Hardware 10Gbps USB 3.1 RAID Storage

  One 10.0 Gbps USB 3.1 Port
  - R0 Xfer Speed: 1046MB/S (read), 1055MB/S (Write)
- R5 Xfer Speed: 1046MB/S (read), 936MB/S (Write)

Taipei, Taiwan, - Aug 27, 2018 - Areca Technology Corporation (ARECA), a leading provider of internal, external and Thunderbolt RAID storage, today announced the availability of an ARC-8050U3-6 10Gbps USB 3.1 compact tower RAID storage. With USB3.1 to PCIe 3.0 bridge and Areca existing high performance hardware RAID engine, ARC-8050U3-6 RAID box delivers the performance enhancement of USB 3.1 at the best of cost/performance value. The advancement of 10Gbps USB3.1 connectivity allows the ARC-8050U3-6 RAID storage to transfer end-to-end 10Gbps storage speed between the storage enclosure and the host system and fully backward compatible with USB 3.0/USB 2.0 interconnection.

The ARC-8050U3-6 is a 6-bay tower RAID storage which supports both USB 3.1 Gen 2 and 12Gb/s SAS interface. The USB 3.1 Gen 2 is a leading-edge technology which can make the bandwidth of USB 3.0 increase from 5Gbps to USB 3.1 with 10Gbps. Via ARC-8050U3-6, the interface can reach the R0 transfer speed to 1046MB/S in reading and 1055MB/S in writing and the R5 transfer speed to 1046MB/S in reading and 936MB/S in writing. It’s the most effective in both cost and performance consideration. The ARC-8050U3-6 also supports a battery backup option that protects all data in cache memory in the event of unexpected power outage. The controller-level ROC hardware encryption manages any kinds of drives attached to ARC-8050U3-6 without impacting the performance for higher levels of security.

The ARC-8050U3-6 is an OS independent, with no additional software or driver installation required, and is also used on any Thunderbolt™ 3 USB-C port. It supports RAID levels 0, 1, 10, 1E, 3, 5, 6, Single Disk or JBOD. Configuration and monitoring can be managed either through the LCD control panel or LAN port. The intelligent cooling continuously adapts to environmental conditions by automatically controlling the speed of the cooling fans for the rapid growing demand from the video editing markets. The ARC-850U3-6 is available immediately, shipping in September 2018.
