The Facilis TX 16 is a 16-drive enclosure that can be used as capacity expansion for any TerraBlock 24D, or as direct-attached RAID for 24D or 24EX systems. The TX16 delivers the same ultra-high performance, quality workmanship and support as the TerraBlock.
Expand a single TerraBlock 24D drive set up to 224TB for a fraction of the cost of traditional server-based expansion. External expansion is enabled through the TX16 SAS Expander for additional online virtual volume storage.
When using the ATTO R680 SAS controller in the DAS option, the TX16 can be formatted in RAID5 or RAID6 modes and used as local-attached storage or TerraBlock expansion storage. If used as Direct-attached TerraBlock expansion storage, the TX16 can be shared out through the Facilis Shared File System as a Multi-user Write volume, opening up possibilities for offload and backup from the client desktops.
