SAS Expander Enclosures

Technology Comparison
Price Comparison, Tower
Price Comparison, Rackmount

Storage JBODs with SAS Expansion are becoming available in more capacities and form factors. The 3U / 16-bay rackmount is the original and is still the most popular model. The 2U / 12-bay and the 4U / 24-bay were introduced for people who needed a slimmer form factor or more drive density, respectively. Tower enclosures with SAS Expander connections are less common, but people who want them are pleasantly surprised to find a model with this much capacity.
