Areca ARC-8050T3 Overview

Designed for video editors working with real-time multi-stream HD and 4K workflows, the ARC-8050T3 120TB 12-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Array from Areca is an 12-bay enclosure that is capable of holding both 2.5" and 3.5" SAS-3 12 Gb/s and SATA III 6 Gb/s hard drives and solid state drives. Equipped with 12 x 10TB hard drives for a total storage capacity of 120TB, the back of the enclosure features two 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 ports that allow you to connect the enclosure to computers running macOS 10.12 or higher, as well as Windows 10 and 8. Once connected, you benefit from enhanced 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 connectivity and the ability to daisy-chain up to six compatible peripheral devices. Additional connectivity includes one DisplayPort 1.2 video output for connecting a 4K / 60 Hz monitor, plus a four-lane SFF-8644 expansion port that operates using the SAS-3 12 Gb/s standard for connecting up to seven expansion enclosures. The Areca ARC-8050T3 also comes with extensive RAID level compatibility. Whether you are looking for speed or redundancy, you can configure the drives to suit your needs, as the enclosure supports a variety of RAID levels, including RAID 0, 1, 1E, 3, 5, 6, 10, 30, 50, and 60. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD and Single Disk configurations are also available. This array, including its RAID status, can be configured using the LCD panel on the front, a rear RJ45 port, or one of the Thunderbolt 3 ports. To back up the enhanced connectivity and advanced RAID features, the ARC-8050T3 comes equipped with an 1.2 GHz Dual-Core RAID-On-Chip and 2GB of 1866 MHz DDR3 ECC memory to ensure smooth operation when working with data intensive applications. The ARC-8050T3 is driven by a 400W internal power supply and cooled using two 92mm 2700 rpm cooling fans. Includes a 3.3' Thunderbolt 3 cable, a power cord, and 48 x drive mounting screws (four per tray).

Unleash Your Creativity

Thunderbolt 3 brings Thunderbolt to USB Type-C at speeds up to 40 Gb/s, creating one compact port that does it all - delivering fast and versatile connectivity to docks, displays, and data devices. The ARC-8050T3 is equipped with dual Thunderbolt 3 ports for connecting to a Thunderbolt 3-enabled host, as well as daisy-chaining other peripherals, while also supplying power for quick notebook charging. The Thunderbolt daisy-chaining allows connection of up to six devices, so customers can connect the ARC-8050T3 for massive amounts of video storage with a single Thunderbolt connection to their host computer. The ARC-8050T3 can meet the demands of users when working with rich, ultra-high resolution media through the Thunderbolt 3 interface. It also sports a full sized DisplayPort 1.2 video output on its rear, allowing for a quick and easy 4K / 60 Hz display setup.

Performance for 4K Workflows

The ARC-8050T3 is a complete 12-bay Thunderbolt 3 desktop SAS/SATA RAID storage with RAID control capabilities for both Windows and Mac. The ARC-8050T3 incorporates on-board RAID-On-Chip and ECC SDRAM memory to deliver high-performance hardware RAID protection against drive failures. This combination helps to provide a high-performance storage device for the video editor working with real-time multi-stream HD and 4K workflows. It runs efficiently without disruption or major drops in performance to meet the requirements of 4K data workflows. It also allows for 4K displays at the same time as daisy chaining ARC-8050T3 units and doing a simultaneous 4K output and file transfers while maintaining intensive throughput.

Enterprise-Class Data Availability and Security

The ARC-8050T3 supports the hardware-controlled RAID 6 engine to allow two HDD failures without impact existing data and performance. It allows users to hot-swap drives in the event of a drive failure with minimal downtime. Its high data availability and protection derives from many advanced RAID features. Intelligent Power On/Off turns power o inn unison with the host computer's power status. It can intelligently power down the unit after the Thunderbolt host shuts down everything for data integrity. The ARC-8050T3 also supports a battery backup option that protects all data in cache memory in the event of unexpected power outage. Board-level hardware encryption manages any kinds of drives attached to ARC-8050T3 without impacting the performance for higher levels of security.

Easy-to-Manage Storage

Configuration and monitoring can be managed either through the LCD control panel, Thunderbolt interface, or LAN port. The ArcSAP quick manager is a multi-language management software specifically designed for managing and configuring the ARC-8050T3 RAID storage. The intelligent cooling continuously adapts to environmental conditions by automatically controlling the speed of the cooling fans for the rapidly growing demand from the video editing markets. You can even configure the ARC-8050T3 to intelligently spin down drives during periods of inactivity to further reduce noise and save energy.

Bootable Drive Support

Provides user the capability of adding bootable drive via Thunderbolt on Apple thunderbolt-capable machine.

Advanced Configuration
