Management Monitor


Enclosure Managerment:

  • CLI through out-of-band RS-232 serial port
  • SES 3.0 via inband SAS SMP protocol
  • Firmware-embedded manager via RS-232 port
  • LED Indicator:

  • LCD control panel for setup, alarm mute and configuration
  • System status indication through LCD, LED and alarm buzzer
  • Activity / Fault for each individual drive carrier
  • Activity/ Link for each external I/O port
  • Powerful Broadcom 12G SAS Expander


    ARC-72xx JBOD series integrate the latest Broadcom 12Gb/s SAS expander to give you the maximum SAS and SATA bandwidth and protection you need to tackle even the hardest challenging tasks easily.

    DataBolt Technology 12G SAS Expander


    The ARC-72xx JBOD is equipped with the latest LSI DataBolt™ technology that intelligently allows 6Gb/s HDD and SSD's to take advantage of 12Gb/s SAS performance by aggregating bandwidth of 6Gb/s drives and intelligently buffering data to 12Gb/s speeds.

    SAS Zoning Feature


    Users can select a specific group of disk channels and define a zone for it. The ARC-72xx JBOD can be split into up to 8 virtual groups. Each group drive channels and external cable connectors are assigned by CLI GROUP command. The following figure is shown the Arc-72xx-JBOD which has split into 2 virtual groups. Each group drive channels are controlled by individual host adapter using SAS CH1 and SAS CH2.

    Daisy-chain Multiple JBODs


    The storage capacity can be expanded instantly by adding additional 12G SAS Expander units like the 8/12 bay tower 16/24 or high bay rackmount 12G SASJBODs solutions too! Ultimately allow you to convert your 12G SAS expander storage to be use with any SAS enabled host.

    Truly Redundant and Reliable Server-Grade PSU


    The hot-swappable 400W PSU is fully redundant capacity. Under normal operation, all power supplies share the load for efficient and stable power delivery. If one power fails, the other one automatically takes over for a clean failover. 1+1 Redundant 400W Low Noise and High Efficiency allows for uninterrupted workflow in the event one of the power units fail. Easy hot-swap power modules are for quick replacement with ultimate reliability and stability for zero system downtime.

    Effective Management Tool


    Areca provides more flexible management tools comparing with others competitors to manage and monitor SAS JBOD. The ARC-72xx JBOD is normally delivered with LCD pre-installed. Your ARC-72xx JBOD can be managed by using the LCD with keypad or a serial device (terminal emulation).

    • LCD: Easy Configuration & Monitor LCD


    Instantly monitor system's status as a glance

    ARC-72xx JBOD LCD is the primary user interface for the JBOD. All configuration and status of the JBOD can be performed from this interface. The LCD status panel informs you of the JBOD real-time operating status at a glance so users can easily grasp the status of the system at all times.

    • RS-232 Port: Easy Configuration


    The ARC-72xx JBOD enclosure functions can also be managed via a VT-100 compatible terminal or a PC running a VT-100 terminal emulation program. You can attach a serial (Character-Based) terminal or server com port to the JBOD for accessing the text-based setup menu.

    SAS JBOD Power Off Controls


    ARC-72xx JBOD contains power Off controls on the expander module. The power Off controls can turn ARC-72XX JBOD power in unison with the RAID subsystems/HBA power status for data integrity. It is advised that you use a proper power down procedure when you would like to power down your RAID subsystems/HBA and JBOD storage. If you attempt to power it down by pressing and holding the power button you run the risk of losing unsaved data and increase the chance of damaging hardware, more specifically the hard drive. Following improper power down sequence of a JBOD storage and attached RAID subsystems/HBA will affect the normal functionality.

    Whisper-Quiet Operation


    The intelligent cooling continuously adapts to environmental conditions by automatically controlling the speed of cooling fans. As a result, the fan reduces noise to a minimum, almost imperceptible level. Whisper-Quiet Low Sound Levels operation, make the ARC-72XX JBOD well suited for video/audio applications, without impacting the work environment.
