Compact 2U 12-bay storage enclosure instantly adds capacity to servers. Working in plug n use with existing RAID cards or HBAs, it offers easy deployment and a cost efficient solution, available with dual controllers and featuring redundant 80 PLUS power supplies. With a convenient modular hot swap hardware design, the JB 212 addresses your need for more storage while simpler and highly affordable compared to a dedicated RAID subsystem.

Add convenient and easy to integrate storage to your servers with JB 200 rackmount enclosures. Working with a wide selection of Infortrendqualified host bus adapters (HBA) and RAID cards, the user friendly 19” enclosures add high performance and high availability direct attached storage to your servers in true plug n play fashion. Available in multiple form factors and densities, JB 200 enclosures have been designed to provide quick and consistent access to big storage that is free from technical complexities.

Fast connectivity

JB 200 enclosures instantly add massive storage to go alongside servers and have the connection speed to keep up via reliable enterprise-class 6Gb/s SAS, which provides a combination of bandwidth and dependability

More room

Using a server equipped with a host bus adapter or RAID card, you can select a JB 200 enclosure with space for as many as 224 drives. Depending on model, JB 200 products work with 2.5” and 3.5” HDDs, each up to 4TB in capacity

High availability and hot pluggable design

We offer JB 200 enclosures with single and dual redundant controllers. The latter work with your HBA or RAID card to ensure high availability that protects data access, with a doubled data path to hard drives. All controllers are hot plug with simple installs, maintenance, and upgrades, making JB 200 enclosures easy to work with even if you are not an IT expert

Diverse form factors

From compact 2U 12-bay to large form factor and high density 4U 48- bay and 60-bay models, JB 200 enclosures cater to a wide range of situations and demands. Whether an SMB or a large enterprise, they deliver the storage space you require while providing an equally flexible price spectrum

Smart and easy drawer layout

High density 48-bay and 60-bay JB 200 enclosures arrange drives into three drawers that can be easily opened and closed with one-hand convenience. Inside drawers, drives stand vertically and can be pushed in and pulled out with great ease – making for quick swaps if you need bigger drives, plus easy maintenance and replacement

Drawer layout

Eco-friendly and safe power delivery

JB 200 enclosures feature up to three redundant 80 PLUS power supplies rated for 530W or 1600W each. These ensure highly efficient power delivery that saves you money on electric bills – a perfect match for non-stop server operation. Power supply fans deliver smart cooling based on system load, reducing energy waste and noise while ensuring optimized heat removal. On top of being very efficient, power supplies are carefully selected for endurance, and with solid redundancy your storage stays up and running even if one power supply requires maintenance
