Media Server / Editing HDD Array - $975


make / manufacturer: OWC
model name / number: Jupiter Kore

Enterprise class, mini-SAS HDD array. Currently used for multi camera video editing and client media storage.


This unit comes with eight, 2TB HDDs; dual, hot-swap fans; and dual, hot-swap power supplies. If you need reliable, bullet-proof editing / media storage capability, this is your solution.

HDDs are Toshiba 2TB Enterprise class drives. The array is currently configured as RAID 6 - providing protection for up to two drive failures before the array goes down. Of course, it can be reconfigured to whatever solution works best for you.

You'll need your own mini-SAS controller card. I'm currently using an ATTO R680 mini-SAS card for control and monitoring.

There is nothing wrong with the array and HDDs. All operations on the array are good. HDD diagnostic report shows no faults. (see screen shots)

I've also included two screenshots of the results from the Blackmagic 'Disk Speed Test' under the 1GB and 5GB settings. You'll get even faster data rates with RAID 0 or RAID 5 - up to 48Gb/s

This enclosure, in the 16TB configuration, currently sells for $3288.

Without the drives, I'm asking $975. Or, get it with the HDDs for $1500. Cash only. Price is pretty firm - unless you have a reasonable counter offer. I'll also need some confirmation of who you are before we meet.

If this ad is up, the array is available for sale.
