Unleash Your Creativity Faster Than Ever
Thunderbolt 3 brings Thunderbolt to USB-C at speeds up to 40 Gbps, creating one compact port that does it all – delivering the fastest, most versatile connection to any dock, display, or data device.

ARC-8050T3 rackmount is equipped with dual Thunderbolt 3 ports for connecting to any Thunderbolt 3-enabled host and offers an additional Thunderbolt 3 port for daisy-chaining other peripherals, while also supplying power for quick notebook charging.

Thunderbolt daisy-chaining allows connection of up to six devices, so customers can connect ARC-8050T3 rackmount for massive amounts of video storage with a single Thunderbolt connection to their host computer. ARC-8050T3 rackmount can meet the demand of users when working with rich, ultra-high resolution media through Thunderbolt 3 interface.

ARC-8050T3 rackmount also sports a full sized DisplayPort video output on its rear, allowing for a quick and easy 4K 60Hz display setup.

Unparalleled Performance for 4K Workflow
ARC-8050T3 rackmount is the 12/24-bay Thunderbolt 3 rackmount SAS/SATA RAID storage with RAID control capabilities solution for both PC and Mac.

ARC-8050T3 rackmount incorporated on-board 1.2GHz dual core ROC and 2GB DDR3-1866 ECC SDRAM memory to deliver true high performance hardware RAID protection against drive failure.This combination helps to provide a high performance storage device perfect 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 workflow. It is so quick it allows for 4K displays at the same time as daisy chaining ARC-8050T3 rackmount and doing a simultaneous 4K output and file transfers while maintaining maximum throughput

Enterprise Class Data Availability and Security
With components redundancy, the ARC-8050T3 rackmount gives professionals enterprise data availability and security.

Cooling fans, disks, and power supply units are fully redundant, hot-swappable capability, and user-serviceable. Hardware RAID 6 engine provides two HDDs failures without impacting the existing data and performance.

Intelligent power On/Off function on storage turns power in unison with the host computer power status. It can intelligently power down the unit after the thunderbolt host shuts down everything for data integrity.

ARC-8050T3 rackmount also supports a flash-based/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 rackmount without impacting the performance for higher levels of security.

Enabling an 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 rackmount.

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 ARC-8050T3 rackmount to intelligently spin down drives during periods of inactivity to further reduce noise and save energy.

12Gb SAS Expander Port
The storage capacity can be expanded instantly by adding additional cost effective ARC-4038 12G SAS Expander units, up to 256 drives with multiple 12G SAS expanders solutions like the 8 bay tower 16 or 24bay rackmount 12G SAS Expander solutions too!

Ultimately allowing you to convert your 12G SAS expander storage to be use with any Thunderbolt 3 enabled host.

Advanced Configuration
Provide optimized parameter to adjust controlled firmware behavior for smooth data streaming.

Controller-level Hardware Encryption
Board-level hardware encryption manages any kinds of drives attached to ARC-8050T3 without impacting the performance for higher levels of security.

BBM Support
Support a battery backup option that protects all data in cache memory in the event of unexpected power outage.
