Thunderbolt 3 High-Bandwidth 40Gbps

Netstor NA333TB3 is designed to have greatly high bandwidth for fastest data storage access and operation with multiple professional PCIe cards.

Flexible, Wide Range RAID Cards Support

Professionals and users are able to choose to use their own desired brand, model of RAID card in the NA333TB3 storage for working according to their application and demands. By utilizing a sixteen-port RAID adapter card inside, the Netstor JBOD immediately turns into an enterprise RAID storage with RAID level protection including 0, 1, 10, 3, 5, 6, 30, 50, and 60.

Up to 3 PCIe Cards Expansion

Netstor NA333TB3 provides three PCIe 3.0 slots within the storage chassis that allow the users to make an easy expansion of varied specialty PCIe cards to the Thunderbolt 3 Mac. Except the necessary RAID adapter card to be added, the professionals can still choose to attach two more pro cards such as video capture, video transcoding, audio accelerator, network card and so on in the 3U storage to add extra performance to Thunderbolt Mac.

More Capacity with Even Higher Speeds

Designed 3U 16-bay storage chassis with support of sixteen hot-swappable drive trays. As each tray attached with 10TB HDD, total usable storage will come to 160 TB capacity. Additionally, through enclosure’s lightning-fast Thunderbolt™ 3 interface, the ultra large archiving storage is ensured to have higher data transfer bandwidth of up to 2750 MB/s.

In addition to 3.5″, Drive Tray Supports SSD/2.5″

The drive tray from the Netstor Thunderbolt 3 storage has been considerately designed to work with both SSD/2.5″ HDD and 3.5″ hard drive for various professionals with diverse demands on speed or immense storage capacity.

24/7 Application

The 3U 16-bay NA333TB3 has the built-in server-grade 500W redundant PSU that ensures application running 24/7 with no system downtime to continuously working with the Thunderbolt 3 Mac server.

Two Thunderbolt 3 Ports supporting Daisy-Chain

Netstor NA333TB3 is able to daisy-chain with up to six Thunderbolt 3 devices. Also with the support of up to two 4K UHD or one 5K display daisy-chained together.

Mac certified, Working with All Series of Thunderbolt Mac
